Sun, sea and adventure! And a passion for boats with style.
The pleasure of being gently lulled by the water, the game of the sun with the waves, longing for the sea and adventure. We love the pleasure of looking up at the horizon, dropping the anchor and enjoying a drink while the sun is slowly setting. And we love exploring this great city, its islands and its many hidden attractions with our boats from the lagoon, which always gives us new perspectives.
Responsibility for tradition and nature
In manufacturing and purchasing our Classic Boats, we support traditional craftsmanship and rely on advanced technology. All boats of the category Sanpierota, Topa, Topo and Bragozzo are built exclusively in Venetian shipyards. Almost all our boats for the day rental are equipped with a very quiet electric drive from Torqeedo® using Lithium-Ionen battery technology, which emits no pollutants.
The Lagoon Adventure
550 square kilometers of diverse water landscapes, paradisiacal nature and beautiful islands: far away from the Venetian bustle, many more adventures are waiting!
The lagoon of Venice and its joining rivers and channels are an unique setting of harmony of nature and the centuries-old human effort to harness and preserve this nature. Along the bollards - these are "guardrails" embedded in the water for orientation for navigation - venerable fairways make the otherwise predominantly shallow waters of the lagoon navigable. Our latest tools in navigation technology will guarantee you a safe navigation and a successful return to Certosa.
You must arrive 15 minutes before departure. This is to ensure that there is time enough for you to get instructions on safety and how the boat is controlled.
