About Us

We are Emilio and Michela,

Welcome to our website

An established team and experienced professional crew, we met in 2005 in Guadeloupe while working onboard ‘La Numero Uno’, a 40m Perini Navi engaged in a round-the-world cruise.


Since then we have worked together on many motor and sailing yachts, cruising in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean Sea, along with extensive refit, new build and shipyard experience.
