Francesco achieved his degree at the Nautical School of Forio (Ischia) and during the five years he worked as electrician, hydraulic, as labourer both in construction companies and in a shipyard, as deckhand in several ships and even in a parking garage. He has always been an hard worked and a good willing guy. After achieving his high school degree, he started working as cadet in several ships but kept working on yachts – his biggest passion – during the summer. He was 26 when he achieved his “Capitano di lungo corso” license (Sea Captain). He kept working as a cadet on merchant ships, always minding his only dream: being Captain of a fast yacht. The dream came true when, at the end of his second season as Captain on a Ghibli 60 feet, he was employed as Captain on a Pershing 88 for charter, where he stayed for 4 years. He was Captain on XKE Fairline 78 Squadron from 2012 to 2014; in 2015 and 2016 he was employed on Happy Feet, an Alalunga 78 and he’s now ready to “delight” his guests on Zia Canaia. Francesco says: “I was 6 when I skippered my father’s goiter the first time, 16 when I left home to embark on a Johnson 63 in Sardinia, 20 when, as cadet, I handed the wheel of a 219 meters ship replacing a mate, 26 when I skippered a Pershing 88 to get to 40 knots speed….”. Francesco is now a young, dynamic and experienced charter Captain ready to meet his guests requirements and knowing very well how to make them happy during a charter vacation.
