Cagliari Sailing Charter

About us

About us

Our company is a specialist in sailing boat charter and owes its beginnings in 2006 to the passion for sailing of the founding members, Alessandro Picciau, a local businessman with a background in the tourist sector who turned his great hobby into his life’s work, and Gianluca Bresciani from Bergamo, a fellow sailing enthusiast and businessman, as well as custom boat builder and owner of a shipyard in Bergamo.

In just a few years the company has become a market leader in Sardinia on the International sailing charter market, with a continual increase in the number of sailing boats in its fleet to satisfy ever growing demand. Cagliari Sailing Charter began with 2 boats, stationed at the Cagliari base, in the South of Sardinia, a Bavaria 41 and a Bavaria 44, opting for Bavaria Yachts as its main ship-building partner and then Dufour Yachts, choices which have proved to be a guarantee of quality and style.

In 2011, the fleet grew considerably to over 10 sailing boats and began to play a key role in the chartering business in the South of Sardinia, resulting in the important management decision to open new operational bases.

In 2015 Cagliari Sailing Charter became Cagliari Sailing Charter (North & South Sardinia). Indeed the new bases in Olbia and Alghero allowed the company to offer a more complete product with the chance to sail from the South to the North of Sardinia and vice versa, as well as the novelty, never before offered in Sardinia, of one-ways from one base to another.

In 2017 the base moved from Olbia to Portisco with 10 boats and the project grew into the reality it is today with 5 bases in Sardinia:

and a Fleet of 24 boats made up of single hull sailing boats and Catamarans.

The fleet is almost entirely owned by the company, but a few of the sailing boats are held under the formula of Yachting Management. The sailing boats are all fitted with modern comforts and the necessary technical equipment to satisfy the needs of even the most demanding clients.

Our technical Staff is highly specialized in the preparation, consignment and maintenance of the boats and is constantly trained to closely support our guests with both technical and tourist assistance, paying particular attention to safety, but also available to suggest wonderful sailing itineraries.

The Head Office and Booking Office are situated in Cagliari, offering the latest technological support but also a human touch, and guarantee expert advice to both our partners and sailing enthusiasts, or as we say “Amigusu”.
