With 8,000 copies distributed so far in 2018, planning for next year’s edition of Estela’s annual yachting guide is well underway. The book will be renamed ‘The Y Yachting Itineraries’, and the feature destination will be Rome, Italy’s ‘Eternal City’. Just 30 km inland, Rome is the perfect stop as part of an Italian coastal itinerary.

As usual, ‘The Y’ will recommend the best time to go, what to see and do, where to eat and drink, always keeping in mind the finest quality that superyacht owners and guests look for. Italy’s Ligurian and Tyrrhenian coasts meanwhile offer some of the finest cruising in the western Mediterranean, with spectacular places to visit.

Almost the same age as our yacht agency in Palma, the Antigua Charter Yacht Meeting was the event’s 57th year. The show’s six-day programme was filled with viewings and trial mini-charters of more than 80 yachts, interlaced with social events, presentations, meetings and crew competitions. As a show without exhibition stands or sightseeing members of the public, it is particularly good for professional networking and viewing some of the finest yachts on the charter market. Luckily, there was also time for some private tours, so we invite you to join us on video tours of M/Y Sherakhan and M/Y Siren. We would like to thank their respective crew for taking the time to show us around and permitting us to film.
