Meet your Host and Captain

Captain Andrea lived many years in Italy as a very successful artist, poet and recreational pilot. Selling everything in 2012 to buy his boat, he left all he knew behind and began a new adventure on the ocean. Andrea is a licensed captain. Having sailed on this ship all the way from Italy, making over 17,000 nautical miles, he knows how to handle the 50ft boat. The first mate varies season to season. 


Mick is a 50 ft. Beneteau Cyclades. The boat is extremely spacious throughout, especially in the large salon area which boasts L-shaped leather sofas and a wide dining table for enjoying meals with family and friends. Outside there is a spacious cockpit seating and fold-out dining table and the flush deck provides plenty of room for relaxing and sunbathing. This is a boat of comfort and luxury.

CABINS: It has 4 double-bed private cabins, each with a private bath.

THE FOOD: A fantastic chef, Andrea never fails to impress guests with fancy Italian dishes, especially when they include fresh fish caught that day.

LANGUAGES: Andrea speaks Italian, Spanish, French and English.
