68 ft / 20.7 m Sunreef Yachts - Sleeps 6 guests

From: €35,000

Chartering in the East Mediterranean and the West Mediterranean


Operating in the East Mediterranean and the West Mediterranean

OMBRE BLU³ offers luxurious holidays for discerning guests and passionate sailors. 

A truly classical boating interior was the inspiration for this custom made Sunreef 70 sailing catamaran.

Love for detail is a hallmark of the yacht’s design. Decorative elements made of brass such as old lamps, bar stools, door handles and railings coming from original passenger ships of the 17th, 18th and 19th century underline its distinctive character. 

Moody weather cannot dampen the on-deck experience as both flybridge and main deck provide protection from sun, wind and rain showers from all sides.

The latter without stealing the view. Those who still feel the need to escape inside may enjoy expansive sea views from the bright and spacious saloon. Various sunbeds on the flybridge, main and front deck invite full relaxation.

The yacht can accommodate up to 8 guests as follow: 6 adults and 2 children 15 years old maximum in 3 double and 1 twin cabin.

The configuration of three couples works perfectly, as each cabin has its very own special touch.

The master cabin is located on the starboard side aft and features a double bed, desk/beauty table, armchair, a huge cupboard space and bathroom with double sink, separate shower and toilet.

The guest cabin on the starboard side is appropriate for couples and stands out, having the largest bathroom with huge open rain shower on teak flooring.

Another bonus for families (or couples) are the two adjoining cabins on the port side, where the bathroom is accessible via the main double cabin.

The connected twin bed cabin solution entails a sofa and beauty table (which operates as a suite when the area is used for one couple) and a single fold-down bed (which forms a bunk-bed), which is perfect to accommodate children or young adults in a family share situation.

OMBRE BLU³ carries a professional crew of 4, who are dedicated to creating the vacation experience of your dreams. OMBRE BLU³ is a Registered PADI Dive Centre.

Explore the underwater world for the first time, take your entry level certification, upgrade your dive ticket, take a specialty course or just dive with us for fun!

Charter on June 10-17, 2023 in Amalfi Coast - Group of 6 from Los Angeles

The charter was wonderful, boat and crew were excellent and the food was truly outstanding.  

We did a circle of Procida, Ischia, Ventotene, Capri, Positano, and Sorrento.  

My one regret is that we didn’t go further to the Pontine Islands to avoid the crowds (mostly American) but happy to see the Amalfi Coast from the comfort of a boat vs. crowded hotel.  

You may be hearing from people in our party about another charter on OmbreBlu.  And we may try it again in Sicily!

Thanks again to you for helping us make a fabulous trip!

Charter on May 20 - 27, 2023 in Sicily, group of 6 from Texas, USA

To my friends,
Thank you again for such wonderful time onboard Ombre Blu3.
3rd time after Sardinia, Greece and SIcily
The time seems to sweep by like the wind and your smoothing and thoughtful attention to details didn't go unnoticed ever.
Hoping to host you State side until next time!

September 2020 - Aeolian Islands, Sicily - Italian Guests

Dear Melissa, Francesco & Marlowe
We are a numerous group, but with you, all of our needs were satisfied. The tour was perfect and every island and every night at anchor couldn't have offered better sensations. Guaranteed fun! And top food! Thank you for having given us such a splendid vacation. Ps. More compliments, we forgot to say that the boat is so well looked after and maintained! GR

August 2020 – Aeolian Islands, Sicily – Swedish Guests (second trip on OMBRE BLU ³)

Dear Melissa & Francesco, Thank you for yet another absolutely unforgettable week in the mesmerizingly beautiful archipelago of the Eolian Islands. However, I must fault you. For one thing my waste line. Francesco’s cooking (and Mel’s Muffins! Darn those Muffins!) which we thought could not possibly get better. Was just simply divine. We would rather eat your cooking than in a 5-Star Restaurant ashore. But these trips are truly made special by you two. We are grateful to have been introduced to you and this lovely way of exploring beautiful places.  You are very special, incredible even. The service, hospitality and atmosphere are honestly fantastic. Can’t wait for new adventures with you next year. xoxo D++++ Ps. Covid felt like a distant place with you all.  On this amazing boat. We felt so safe and you were all so conscientious. Meanwhile, the pandemic rages in other places OMBRE BLU ³ was truly the sanctuary we all savely needed. D.C  

July 2020 - Amalfi Coast - UK Guests

"Dear Melissa, Francesco and Marlowe,
We had an unforgettable journey on your beautiful boat.  You have thought about every detail, from the elegant fabrics and timeless decor to lounging and seating for every occasion a sea and ashore.  The food is delicious, perhaps too yummy, as we are all bursting out of our clothes.  We loved exploring the coastline, swimming in the magical inviting waters, catching jellyfish, sailing, tasting new wines and local delicacies. You have given us a truly unique family holiday.  Whether relaxing or active, we have loved our time aboard OMBRE BLU ³.  From our hearts we thank you.  Until our next excursion!"

July 2020 - Naples to Pontine Islands - Italian Guests

"We thank you for this splendid week during which, with your care and attention to every detail, you have made us feel at home. We have seen the most splendid places and eaten amazing food. Your beautiful "home" equipped and ready to provide fun always, together with your kindness and hospitality have made our vacation unforgettable "home is where the heart is" and we leave a piece of our heart behind.

With affection, see you soon!

Melissa, Francesco & Marlowe

Two words... perfect Trifecta!!! Three different locations, three different sets of friends and family on each charter but the one consistent item is the amazing, friendly, knowledgeable experience you provide every time! Your in-depth knowledge of each location enables us to experience all of the beauty of Italy (with no planning on our part :)) The Ombre Blu culinary experience is on par (or better than) many Michelin Star restaurants! We look forward to seeing that Cookbook someday! Thank you for helping us create more memories that will last a lifetime! Until the next time... With love Rosanne & Chris
