We booked this from 4,000 miles away months ahead of our trip so really were not sure how it would ultimately work. Happy to report that we had a great experience - everything was as represented and Lake Como makes for a beautiful sail, especially in the afternoon. While this boat is a bit dated, it functioned well for our family of four. We had an amazing time!
The Meteor was a fantastic sail. Highly recommend! We were concerned about the logistics of departing and returning without an engine, but when we arrived, we were quickly boated out to the moored sailboat where they assisted us off the mooring and quickly into sailing. The boat is fantastic. All in working order. We had decent wind and really loved our 3 hour sail. On our return, mooring on the ball was simple as they met us right there. Would definitely recommend for ease and experience. We did not have a Captain.
Outstanding sail on Lake Como. The Comet is stable but responsive with an enormous Genoa that allowed us to tack efficiently all the way past Belaggio into the prevailing 8 knot “Breva” seeing both sides of the lake on each tack, then run downwind on the building afternoon breeze. Reeled the foresail in completely for the last hour. Saw much of the lake on one day. Below, head was clean and very functional, everything was tidy and organized. Communication with Alessio were excellent. He was standing on the dock when we arrived both by land and by sea.
We had an awesome day exploring Lake Como with this boat. For the 8 hours, we had enough fuel to go all the way to Lecco, up to Colico, down to Villa Balbianello and back. The boat was comfortable, easy to operate, and in great condition. Loved that it has a bimini for some shade. We would definitely rent again!
We had a wonderful day on the water. The weather was a bit windy, so the boat was switched out for something with some weather protection. While we were disappointed to not get the timber boat, the replacement was completely appropriate and we were glad for the change up. Eric, the captain, was a terrific guide and made the experience all the better. Would highly recommend for a day out on Lake Como.
Our 3 hour boat tour was so great! We originally booked 2 hours but wanted to see a few other stops and ended up booking an additional hour for an extra charge and it was so worth it! Our boat driver picked us up right in the town we were staying in and gave us the best tour all over the lake. He was so knowledgeable about the lake and offered to take pictures of us. Cristina’s communication prior to the tour was greatly appreciated to make sure we had a seamless experience. Would definitely recommend. The lake is beautiful - you have to see it from the water and this boat was perfect to do so.
