Capri is definitely not an island "just like the others." Why on earth, then, would you settle for exploring it on a boat "just like the others"? The island of Capri is the most exquisite destination in the Mediterranean. It's the perfect embodiment of pleasure, freedom, and natural beauty, going all the way back to the sumptuous times of the Roman emperors. This island deserves to be experienced aboard the boat of your dreams. That means more than simply a luxury yacht or even a truly fast motorboat, but aboard one of the most exclusive and elegant jewels of Made in Italy boating.
Enjoy the most intimate coves, where limestone rocks are mirrored in the turquoise water of the Gulf of Naples; discover sea caves with their unique colors and spectacular reflections; celebrate the sunset on Capri, with a dip in the warm sea and a toast of Italian bubbly. All of these experiences are even more amazing when experienced on the right boat.
Riva: sailing aboard a dream
Style, luxury, and perfect elegance: Riva yachts are the quintessence of Italian boating. These yachts stand guard over a tradition of craftsmanship that for decades has landed in the most glamorous ports as well as directly on the big screen. From the Faraglioni of Capri to the Venice Lagoon, from Cannes to Portofino, these luxurious, high-tech, and captivating boats have been sailing the Mediterranean since the 1950s, when they famously played host to film stars and international jet-setters. Iconic as they are, Riva yachts often end up stealing the scene whenever they play a role in big-screen features.
Founded in 1852, the historic Riva shipyard is known for its excellence in the Italian nautical sector. Over the years the company evolved from a workboat repair and construction yard to a manufacturer of high-performance wooden boats for motor racing. In the 1950s, Riva expanded its market by importing American engines and producing elegant wooden speedboats. In the 1960s, its Aquarama model became an icon of the Riva brand. This symbol of luxury and elegance is still admired today for its performance and class. Despite changes in ownership through the years, the Riva brand continues to garner both admiration as well as orders from around the world, proof of the enduring appeal of Italian craftsmanship.
Sailing in the waters of Capri on a Riva super yacht or another exclusive boat from one of the top Italian luxury nautical brands means treating yourself to a truly one-of-a-kind experience. You might feel a bit like James Bond, the legendary and seductive 007. Or, if you prefer, like Vittorio Gassman and Silvana Mangano, ''kissed by the breeze and sun of the Italian summer''. Several companies on Capri offer charter services with the historic Aquarama model as well as new larger models equipped with interior spaces, such as the Riva 44.
While the style of Riva recalls the adventurous 007, the essential characteristics of Itama brand motorboats are harmony and power. Itama is another top brand in Italian luxury boating, offering a collection of open jewels with which to set off to discover the sea of Capri. Imagine embarking on a personalized tour with your own private skipper, accompanied by champagne and a gourmet dinner in one of the most elegant restaurants on the island.
And you'll be spoiled for choice when it comes to experiencing the sea of Capri at its fullest, choosing from among the leading brands in Italian and international shipbuilding. From Pershing to Aicon, the most spellbinding and vibrant boats in the world are a must in the Capri summer and all along the Amalfi Coast.
And for the biggest romantics? They can choose a luxury gozzo in perfect Dolce Vita style, for a retro experience without sacrificing comfort, speed, and luxury.
