The Italian branch of InterCharter was opened in 2004 and then moved to the UK in 2011 by the owners:

Fabio Samec
Yacht Charter Broker
registered under n. 31 in the "Ruolo dei Mediatori Marittimi di Trieste" (Ship and Yacht Brokers Registry)

Fabio Samec

Fabio began his career in the marine industry in 1980 when he started managing a boat building and repair yard, while studying for his degree in mechanical engineering. In 1990 he used those skills to design and build his own yacht, a 60' cutter. He then concentrated on sailing crewed-charter sailboats, an activity that allowed him to sail more than 150,000 miles in the Mediterranean Sea and the Caribbean. Having acquired a considerable experience in the yacht charter field, Fabio founded "InterCharter" in 1999, its first headquarters being in Panama. Since then, beside his yacht charter broker activity, he's been teaching shipbuilding classes and supporting various projects within the marine industry.

Francesca Pettoello
Yacht Charter Broker
registered under n. 49 in the "Ruolo dei Mediatori Marittimi di Trieste" (Ship and Yacht Brokers Registry)

Francesca Pettoello

Francesca started her career far from the nautical sector, with a degree in chemistry and a master's degree in e-Business Management. She worked first for two chemical companies and then in web publishing. Later, in 2001, Francesca joined Fabio on board his cutter as hostess and chef until 2003, thereby acquiring first-hand her crewed-charter experience and a sense for the delicate equilibrium and the subtle alchemy that make a successful charter. At the same time, she started working at InterCharter as its web master and as a yacht charter broker until 2015, when she took a different career path. Today, she still guarantees to Intercharter the support of her 15-year exeprience.

The broker guarantees that the contract is drawn up in compliance with international laws, rules, regulations, standards and practices governing the yacht charter industry. Our fees are payable solely by the Owner and all the funds paid to us are received on behalf of the Owner.
