Charter Amongst the Volcanoes

Sailing Aeolian Islands is a treat not to be missed! Just to the north of Sicily in the Tyrrhenian Sea, lies this archipelago of 7 volcanic islands: Vulcano, Lipari, Filicudi, Alicudi, Salina, Panarea and Stromboli. A bareboating paradise, the Aeolian Islands remain relatively untouched and have retained a feeling of a remote wilderness despite having been invaded and conquered for millennia by the Greeks, Phoenicians and Romans, to name a few. The Islands are now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Open a Toy Box Full of Surprises

When you think of a bareboat motorboat, you do not immediately think of luxury or glamour. Its celebrity sibling, the crewed motor yacht, steals the show more often than not, while the humble bareboat provides more affordable yet equally unforgettable charters.

Ones over 10 metres are hard to come by, and ones with jacuzzis are practically unheard of. Let alone ones that come equipped with a state of the art entertainment and gaming system, wine cooler, air conditioning,  wifi, 115hp dinghy, and a plethora of water toys including wakeboard, kayaks and advanced fishing equipment.

With all of these fantastic amenities and then some, Toy Box definitely stays true to her name. At a staggering 24m she is the perfect boat for a family or group of friends who have extensive sailing experience. Moreover, she is based in British Columbia, Canada, one of the most exquisite cruising spots in North America. With activities such as whale watching on offer and some beautiful, unspoilt areas to explore both on and off the water, this is for all those who love nature, while enjoying the benefits a luxury yacht has to offer.

If you want to enquire about Toy Box or have any other questions, do not hesitate to contact us here.
