About S.Y. Mephisto - Il Piacere del Mare di Giovanni Passarella
S.Y. MEPHISTO - Daily sailing charter “Il Piacere del Mare” in the wonderful islands of the national park of Maddalena and Corsica. Departure 10:30/11:00 - Return 17:00/18:00 The boat is a 41 feet ketch built by the famous swedish shipyard Hallberg-Rassy renowned for the high standards of construction and materials so that their yachts are considered some of the safest, most sturdy and comfortable boats on the oceans. While sailing or anchoring among the marvellous islands our guests can enjoy the sun on the cushions or take shelter in the shadow of sun tents and the wind screen and have hot fresh water showers. We will be sailing to the nicest sites and bays where we take you with Mephisto’s dinghy to white sandy beaches with crystal clear water. Back on board we offer you a typical mediterranean vegetarian lunch with various appetizer, abundant “spaghetti” accompanied by plentiful white and red wine, coffee, local pastries and the Sardinian digestives Mirto and Filu e Ferru. It’s better to book at last one day in advance. Enjoy the pleasure of the sea!

Dear MarinMarais, We definitively agree with you that the natural Park of La Maddalena Islands is definitively over-run by mass tourism. For this reason, you should point this out to the relevant authorities for what concern the management of the Natural Park. It would be...More
