The thought of spending a blissful summer in the Mediterranean where the nights are long, the wine is good and the company second to none is probably one of the few things we look forward to every year.
At Von der Heyden Yachting this is not just what we do, its what we specialise in.
Step onboard a timeless work of art, a bespoke piece of iconic Italian design that is a Riva yacht. Our version of this takes the form of a Riva 63 Virtus, 19 meters of refined luxury and style – the ultimate vessel for a journey that will take your breath away. She is an exquisite haven that you can call your own and enjoy the experience of a lifetime.
Our crew are highly trained individuals that understand the culture of luxurious travel, bespoke yachting experiences and the highest standards of service, discretion and privacy.
Imagine how three sun kissed days breaking waves at sea in luxury and style could be yours this summer. Fresh and gourmet is the order of every day when it comes to your cuisine served after sipping on vintage champagne at sunset. Wrap yourself up in sumptuous linen for the evenings’ sea breeze and inhale tranquility. Your remedial exhales and a blissful nights sleep prepares you for the custom day-time adventures the crew has in store for you.
On arrival Captain Nicola will make sure our guests are all familiar with the yacht before embarking to visit Maddalena island in the morning, anchoring off and dipping in the world-famous crystal-clear waters of the Costa Smeralda. After a tantalising swim and perhaps some yoga on the paddleboards, we venture forth to Cala Coticcio, also known as Tahiti by the locals.
At 35 knots Vanquish comes into her own, showing off her speed and agility. This is what she was built to do as a proper speed yacht. You can explore as much as you would like, because on M/Y Vanquish nothing is far away.
In the afternoon there are multiple options, but we love Cavallo island as it is one of the most breathtakingly beautiful places on earth. The crew will take you and your party to shore where you can enjoy lunch at one of the restaurants or the iconic hotel. After an afternoon in the sun and sea, heads will turn as Vanquish moors in the port of Bonifacio to spend the night. This is a magical place with so much to offer for a night out!
Wake up to a delightful breakfast on the aft deck with the cliffs of Bonafacio as a backdrop, the crew canserve up anything your heart desires. After we clear up breakfast, we are ready to head off to Budelli island and explore Spiaggia Rosa in the morning. Here everyone can enjoy some watersport activities with the crew, including paddle boards, a seabob to explore the coastline with snorkels and towable tubes for the adventurous on board.
In the afternoon we will anchor off Spargi island where everyone can enjoy the blue waters for a swim before getting ready to head south and moor in Porto Cervo to spend the night and explore this beautiful town.
On the third day the captain and our wonderful stewardess will show you Spiaggia del Pevero in the morning, Romazzino bay in the afternoon and back to Poltu Quatu in the evening. However there is no set itinerary and everything is as flexible as you would like. Sit back and let a local captain show you the best Sardinia has to offer or choose to see whatever you like. Anchor off for the night or go further afield to other islands in the Med or explore the South of Sardinia. The possibilities are endless, and the crew and team behind them will always put you first to make sure that you have an unforgettable experience that will be remembered for a lifetime.
