Barcando, vacation itineraries for all

“What fleet do we propose for summer 2022? Our main novelties,” says Antonio Palermiti, ceo of Barcando Charter, “are the new Bali catamarans: we have included the 4.4 and the 5.4. The latter is a true luxury vessel with 5 cabins and crew. Today, in fact, the market has changed and is expanding so much, and then it is necessary to respond to the new needs of customers and in particular to the needs of tourists coming to Italy from abroad: who are more and more and who are making requests for bigger and bigger boats.

That is why we have the whole Bali fleet available, but the important thing is also to emphasize that ours are all recent boats. In today’s market, this is something that makes a difference, and we have our sights set on it. A final development, but one that will only be active from 2023, is that we will open a new base in Sardinia, in the Gulf of Cugnana. Another investment we always make to meet market demands.”

– Cruising season gets longer

But back to the summer coming very soon: how are bookings for the coming months going so far? “Our season had started very well with so many requests until before the outbreak of the war in Ukraine that we had and already have reservations until October. However, since a few weeks after that drop, the recovery has started and again the demands are doing very well: not only for all the summer months but also beyond that, so much so that we hope to get to extend the vacation season into November.

On the other hand, I must say that after the pandemic there has been a great growth of new clients, both Italians and foreigners, who have chosen this type of boating vacation because it is a safe trip away from the crowds and made of safety and tranquility. Of course, these new tourists also have new needs: they demand a real trip with itinerary more than just a rental, and we have had to adjust to work as tour operators as well. We have become a travel agency and build packages trying to offer everything you need: airport transfer, dedicated reception, galley, route preparation and itineraries. And we give full support during the cruise as well, via chat and phone.”

Can we give an idea of the rates for the summer? “Of course: for example, I can say that in high season the smaller catamarans have prices starting from 9,000 euros per week, while then we get for the 5.4 to rates starting from 24,000 euros per week in mid-August. However, we always explain that Italian tourists as far as possible should also try to go in September and October: this is the period when boats cost less and services are better.”
