Retaining its reputation as a magnet for the international elite and the world’s most glamorous guest lists since the 1950s, Italy’s famously caught-in-time summer playground remains unchanged since Jackie O took her daily sunset-stroll here. And as one of TJB Super Yachts’ most popular yacht charter destinations, it’s clear you also can’t get enough!
The TJB team touched down in Capri for 48 hours to reconnect with TJB Italian yacht brokers, Valentina Lieto and Nino De Matola, catch a glimpse of the brand new luxury yacht O’REA, whilst also using the Tyrrhenian Sea as an exciting backdrop for our CEO, Tim Johnson, to report on an equally exciting Q2 at TJB Super Yachts where we celebrate being up 20% on last year, and with 70 bookings alone in May.
From a blend of exclusive beach clubs, trendy bars, boutique shops and a limited number of moorings, it is no wonder Capri’s coastline reigns coveted – offering yacht charter clients a sense of privacy and seclusion.
“The crowned jewel of the Mediterranean, Capri is the embodiment of authentic Mediterranean luxury. Based on insider knowledge and years of expertise in this area, we love helping our clients discover the hidden magic of Capri, with authentic and exclusive experiences that are best discovered by yacht.” Valentina Lieto, Sales & Charter Broker and Nino De Matola, Charter Broker
PRESTIGE AND HISTORY
From the majestic limestone cliffs rising above the Tyrrhenian Sea to the ancient allure of Villa Jovis where Emperor Tiberius once reigned, the island exudes timeless charm perfect for an Italy yacht charter. In the 19th century, artists and intellectuals flocked here, enticed by a mild climate and free-spirited lifestyle. Later, in the 1950s and 60s, Capri became a glamorous haven for the international jet-set, epitomising the Dolce Vita era.
As must-try Capri hot-spots go, our Italian team chose La Fontelina as their favourite beach club in Capri, and Caeser Augustus as their top restaurant with a view in Capri.
