The sun rises on the terrace of your holiday home, one of our St Tropez villa rentals. Begin the day with a drive in your vintage Mehari along the pine-laden scenic route to the town’s port. Here awaits the majestic Phenix Dixi, the legendary sailboat renowned for its elegance, with its deck made of fine wood and its streamlined design.

AN EXCEPTIONAL SAILBOAT

A unique prototype designed by the famous Guy Ribadeau Dumas, the Phenix Dixi is well known for its classical elegance and technical prowess. While in port, the eye is inescapably drawn to its incredible authenticity. Climb onto a Saint Tropez pier to embark and discover this beauty of a ship.

A meticulous design

With 20 meters in length (65 feet), this elegant 1992 ship with its teak wood deck and streamlined design will take you on a luxurious ride along the ports of the Mediterranean. Marvel at the comfort and the choice furniture inside this modern sailboat. With its big kitchen, lounge and 3 cabins, it is the ideal getaway for visiting the waters of the Mediterranean on your luxury St Tropez holidays with friends or family.

A fierce competitor

The Phenix Dixi is also a highly sophisticated racing boat, and winner of several regattas. It takes part each year in unmissable nautical sports on the French Riviera, the Voiles de Saint Tropez (end of September) and the Porquerolles Cup (end of May) on the magical île d’Or. Admire this competition boat’s grandiose spinnaker rushing through the wind. Or if you are looking for adrenaline, join the official crew for a day and help the Phenix Dixi earn yet another award!

DISCOVER THE MEDITERRANEAN

Make your pick from the three different trips on the Phenix Dixi from Saint Tropez. A long crossing to one of the most beautiful luxury holiday destinations in Italy, a quiet trip to Saint Tropez lulled by the water lapping the hull, or a race on the bay tearing through the waves, where you get to see all that this boat is capable of, from daring 180s to breathtaking speeds.

A stay on the Italian coasts

Come aboard the Phenix Dixi and let the crew whist you away. Choose your itinerary with them and cast off in the most gorgeous Italian ports. Between Naples and Pompeii, enjoy a well-deserved break to go fishing or diving. Once in Naples, head out to explore the city, or have a rest in the cockpit before a meal prepared by the on-board cook.

A day in Saint Tropez Bay

During your stay by the French Riviera, you will have many opportunities to see the town of Saint Tropez. Sample the town’s very own Tropézienne cake, have a drink at Sénéquier’s or bask in the sun on the beach. But you can also discover the bay under a new light. Set sail, have lunch by the secret coves or take a dip in the crystal clear water of the Mediterranean. Admire the coast, and try to spot your villa among the beaches and growth.

Take part in a boat race

Short-listed for the official races, the experienced crew of the Phenix Dixi will take you on board for a unique experience. You can experience two major nautical events on this multi-award winning boat: the famous Voiles de Saint Tropez, at the start of Autumn, and La Porquerolle Cup during Whit week.

Watch the precise manoeuvres of the sailors and observe the boat’s excellence in the wind. Or take part in the action yourself! Then, back in port, discover the special nightlife of the sailing world in the mythical Saint Tropez port or on the enchanting Porquerolles Island.
