This wonderful, brand new sailing boat is moored in the ancient harbor of Portovenere, just on the 'Calata Doria'.
It's a magic port where to spend one or two nights on board, and it's the perfect spot where to sail from, to Cinque Terre.

We were disappointed
Response from Marcello:
I believe that guest assessment is supported by a basic lack of interest in discovering a new adventure. Since there was no wind, we suggested not to use the engine all the time to reach the 5 Terre but to stay closer to Portovenere among its beautiful islands. The guest expressed the desire to reach the 5 Terre and we gladly followed. The absence of wind forced the use of the engine to reach the 5 Terre and maybe he was expecting a fast vehicle as a ferry but with the sailboat it took longer than a powerboat. Despite the return to Portovenere some wind has allowed to sail, from our guests there was no sign of least interest in participating in the sailing. Guests wished to sleep or stay downstairs playing with the phone, even though the day was wonderful and the trip suggested admiring the marvelous landscape from the sea. After we did a few descriptions of the places and features of the ecosystem around us, as there was no interest, let the guests do what they preferred in respect of their relaxation. The deal was for a day sailing, no overnight, so the beds were not fitted to be used, they were provided with covers and pillows, as described in the listing linens and towels can be provided on request. The boat was perfect and clean as usual. The guest unfortunately did not know how to grasp the spirit of sail philosophy. And in focusing on the search for something to complain, he missed an emotion that could suggest an extraordinary reminder of such a beautiful day. Boring people exist but they usually don’t book for a sailing day!
