We had a fantastic day out on Ruggero’s boat. There were 9 of us (4 adults and 3 children) and the boat was the perfect size with air conditioned cabins down below for a siesta, and plenty of shade and sitting/lying areas above deck.

Ruggero speaks excellent English and had prepared everything for our day including delicious food and drinks, which everyone enjoyed (there was more than we could finish). And his boat captain was very good and very helpful throughout the day.

It is a beautiful boat, and I would recommend it highly to anyone for a day out.


I have rented sailboats for several years now and Luciano was absolutely the most professional. If you are looking for a fantastic experience, look no further. Luciano was an absolute pleasure as a host and captain. He is extremely knowledgeable about Sicily and an excellent cook. We will definitely be back!
