Francesco started to be Captain at 14 years old when his father gave him the permission to sail the family boat around the golf of Napoli and Salerno with his friends.
At 20, he started his own Windsurfing and Sailing School in Stromboli, Aeolian Islands; at 23, he bought his first catamaran Manutara, which was one of the first catamaran in the charter business around Sicily.
In 1986, he crossed Manutara with his wife to the Caribbean, the first of 12 Atlantic crosses, and 12 winter charter seasons in the West Indies.
In the 2003 began the precious partnership with the current ship owner of the Kaskazi, the 65' catamaran located in Kenya. This cooperation is continuing with success, and today the two brothers are glad to manage the Kaskazi four with a great experience behind them.
They sailed a chartered Kaskazi during the winter season in the Indian Ocean on the east coast of Africa up to now.
Over the years, Francesco never missed a summer sailing season in the Aeolian Islands that he loves and knows as few other people and where he has his home and heart.
Volcanology, Geology, Archeology, Speleology Biology, Diving, snorkeling, Water sky, Kayak Windsurf, good restaurants and happy nightlife: with Francesco, you will never get bored! His several charter experiences guarantee a high professionalism.
Some of his clients call Francesco "the poet of the sea" for his natural attitude or talent to enjoy and let enjoy the life on the water and the art to be at the right moment at the right place with his boat and guests.
He loves fresh and healthy Mediterranean food and wines, and he is a very appreciated cook too.
Very friendly and patient, Francesco loves the children and to share with them his knowledge of sailing, of the sea and sea life and of course the use of all watersport tools.
