Charter A Superyacht in Sicily For A Unique Journey

The largest of the Mediterranean’s islands, Sicily enjoys crystal clear waters, ancient architecture and a rich culture. Brightly painted fishing boats bob in secluded bays, while buildings so old they look like they would crumble at a touch crowd the island’s shores.

Home to Europe’s tallest volcano – Mount Etna, which is also one of the most active volcanoes in the world – Sicily is the perfect location for a week-long family superyacht charter spent touring the island’s enchanting coastline. Curated by Captain Sputh of My Starfire, a 178′ Benetti superyacht for charter, here are six reasons to charter a superyacht in Sicily for a unique journey.

Over 2,700 years old, Palermo is a city steeped in history. Soak up the city’s culture, history and gastronomic delights while exploring its labyrinthine streets, or simply pause and absorb it all with a coffee in the shadow of the iconic Palermo Cathedral. For an evening of culture, visit the Teatro Massimo – Italy’s largest opera house – and enjoy the perfect acoustics as some of the world’s leading opera singers perform for your pleasure and delight.

San Vito lo Capo

With pure white sands and water so clear it is perfect for snorkelling, San Vito lo Capo is Sicily’s ultimate beach destination. Dedicate a day to nothing more than enjoying the sand, sunshine and sea that nature has brought together so beautifully, perhaps with a break to try out the famous Panini con Panelle speciality with a coffee at Cafe Europa at lunchtime.


Just off Sicily’s western coast sits the three islands that make up the community of Favignana: Favignana, Marettimo and Levanzo. Learn about the ancient fishing practices still utilised here before enjoying a lunch of the freshest Bluefin tuna around. In the afternoon, be sure to explore Favignana’s famous calcarenite rock caves.

Marettimo is the ultimate scuba diving and snorkelling destination, with clear waters teaming with fish and other wonders of the sea. Swimming spots only accessible by boat make this one of the Mediterranean’s most pleasurable and exclusive islands to explore by yacht, so be sure to work your way fully around it.


Southwest of Sicily, find the island of Pantelleria for a day of rambling and exploring. Discover the remains of the Middle Bronze Age village on the west coast before visiting the ‘sesi’ (tombs) built of lava that dot the island.

No visit to Marsala would be complete without sampling the world-famous local wine, so be sure to relax in the sun with a glass or two. Marsala is also home to the not-to-be-missed Stagnone Lagoon – a marine area of hot salt pools that are perfect for a day of frolicking in the summer sun.
