Head office in Italy at Monte Argentario.
One of the most beautiful areas in the world was chosen by Bluebird Yachting as its operational centre: the Monte Argentario in Italy.
Orbetello is a small village in the middle of two lagoons linked to the peninsula Monte Argentario, which is just in front of two pearls of the Tuscan Archipelago: the islands Giglio and Giannutri.
It is a strategical point for assisting charters in the centre of the West Mediterranean Sea and a perfect charter base for exploring Italy’s most beautiful navigation areas.
A rich flora with its typical “macchia mediterranea“, olive and pine trees, oleander, rosemary, sage and wild orchids and a fauna that features some of the biggest varieties of marine birds – including the pink flamingos in the winter season – contribute to the magic of this territory.
The panoramic ruins of the ancient Roman colonia of “Città di Cosa“, the many Spanish fortresses (Forte Stella, Forte Filippo, Forte Spagnola) and the ex powder magazine “Guzman” from the Spanish domination and its “Stato dei Presidi” (1557 – 1801), the Etruscan city wall of Orbetello, the “Giardino dei Tarocchi” (one of the most important artworks of Niki de Saint Phalle), the WWF oasis in Feniglia and Burano are only some of the attractions of the area.
Fly away through the midnight air, As we head across the sea
And at last we will be free, You’re a bluebird.
All alone on a desert island, We’re living in the trees
And we’re flying in the breeze, We’re the bluebirds
–Paul Mc Cartney

In the bareboat charter sector we work with the most serious charter fleet owners who offer the newest yachts, the best assistance at the charter base and a particular attention to the good maintenance of their charter boats.
A high quality service.
A happy client is our most important goal. In order to guarantee a completely successful and relaxing charter holiday, we, being certified yacht brokers, offer a multitude of different services designated to make your cruise carefree in every phase of the yacht charter.
Finding the right yacht sometimes isn’t easy. There are many elements to be put together: the size, the location, the cabin numbers, the bed configuration, the construction year, the price, the crew (if any), the equipment and much more.
With our knowledge of the charter market and a great number of contacts all over the world, we will help you to find the right yacht in the right place and do our best to negotiate the ideal charter price for you.
Charter contracts often contain so many articles and clauses that it is easy to loose the overview on what we’re exactly signing. We will give you our legal support, resume the content for you, give you an evaluation of the balance of the agreement and, if necessary, negotiate possible amendments or supplementary conditions.
A good vacation on the sea needs to be well planned in advance:
Which items and what provisioning will I need on board? do I need a transfer from the airport to the charter base? what would be a sample itinerary for my cruise? which documents do I need to bring? what activities can I plan during my cruise, which attractions are on my way and how can I find the best restaurants of the area?
Our charter team will gather the required documents, assist you in booking all the additional services you may need and give you all the advices for getting you ready!
During the cruise we are available for any inconvenience: Do you need informations about your cruising area, about moorings, restaurants, sports, activities or any other facility? We will help you out. Do you have problems with the boat or the crew? We will try to find a solution. Any communication issues in a foreign country? We’ll speak with the people for you.
The bluebird is a symbol of happiness and cheer and a nautical sign for sailing long distances. Many musicians mention bluebirds in their songs – if you think about “Bluebird of Happiness”, “Hello, Bluebird”, “Over The Rainbow”, “Lazarus” and many others – and associate freedom, beauty, secret wishes, hidden places and positive feelings to this bird. In this spirit we would like you to experience your holidays.
Sail to deserted islands and feel the mild summer breeze in your hair, have a bath in the refreshing sea and swim together with dolphins and turtles, meet wonderful people in exotic countries and merge into their enchanting cultures. Taste the flavor of local specialties and gourmet cuisine on board and ashore, enjoy chilling music on lazy afternoons, sunset aperitifs and hot parties in exclusive beach clubs, enter ancient worlds by walking through temple ruins or simply follow the sound of the nature.
But most of all: leave everything behind you and feel free like a bluebird…
