Crew Profile

Captain: Gianfranco (46)

Gianfranco is 46 years old. He grew up in Sicily and was always surrounded by the wind and the beautiful Mediterranean sea, when he was young he started to teach himself sailing with his own dinghy.

His professional career as a skipper began in 2002. Initially he worked for two years as a base manager for a local charter boat operator in Trapani. Then as he started to expand his network he worked with different charter companies and private yachtsmen.

He was hired as a captain to sail around the Mediterranean Sea and to take boat transfers. He has also sailed around the Bahamas for a Nassau-based sailing event, there he worked as an honorary employee for a non-profit organization, for boat excursions.

I have been a captain now for 15 years but I will never tire of sailing with the wind and to show people the beauty of the Mediterranean sea.

In addition, he is a trained electronics engineer so also bring a lot of professional experience (e.g. repair and maintenance of boat electronics, plumbing, boat setting, general testing and cleaning). With this amount of experience, clients can feel safe and relaxed on the boat!

Chef/Hostess: Serena

2017 is Serena's second season onboard Blue, loved by the owner and his family for her great food, personality and hard work.
