How the boat became our life

Getting by in Sicily is difficult without a knowledge of Italian. So one year ago, Menno and I, bumped into each other in an Italian lesson. We’ve since become the best of friends. One day over a coffee, we came to the realization that it was time to fulfill our dream and turn our Passion into our work by acquiring an enchanting Boat.

Who We Are

We come from the north of Europe, Menno, a worldly and cultured spirit from Holland and Radvile, cheerful adventurer from Lithuania. Both we come from the families where the Boat is a very special and important thing and we grew up spending our summers onboard.

We are 2 energetic souls who have fallen in love with Sicily and now want to share all it’s beauty and goods with you.

On our boat we will furnish everything you need – sumptuous wine, gorgeous local cuisine, oysters & prosecco tasting tours, barbecues, snorkelling and fishing.

Depending on the occasion, you may encounter live music on our boat, us catching fish to be grilled for an impromptu dinner onboard, boisterously singing as sailors do, enjoying the silence of the Big Blue, reveling in the sun setting behind Etna from the unique perspective of the sea, hearing incredible sea stories of adventures past from your captains as well as specific local knowledge and secrets or, just maybe, a chance spotting of our marine friends dolphins.

Every tour will have a taste all of its own and if there’s one thing we know -it is how to create memories that will last a lifetime.

Worldly And Cultured Dutch Spirit

3 years ago, Menno wandered down here in his fireman’s truck while on a travelling adventure around Europe for one year. It was then that he met Irene, a wonderful Sicilian woman, and his life was changed forever.

Menno, 42 years young, whose vast experience includes working in Amsterdam’s classiest restaurants and eventually led him to run his own. Thus, he is a fine wine and food connoisseur. Eventually, Sicily seduced his calm Dutch exterior and he sold his beloved restaurant to move here for good.

He knows everything about good wine and great food! And his dream is to bring the best Sicilian produce to you on our cherished boat.

The Sea Is My Soul

Having lived all my life is the breezy north myself, I have always harbored the dream of living on the sunny shores of Sicily surrounded by shady palm trees and blossoming flowers. One day Catania had cast a spell on me! Since stepping onto this island it has became Casa Mia. There is no looking back.

I have only 28 years but life experience has shaped me into a responsible person. For 10 years, I ran my own business, which gave me great experience at expertise in making my clients happy. I am a southern spirit at heart – warm and welcoming, happy and free and the sea is in my soul.

I’m crazy in love with food and especially with local produce which our beloved Mamma Etna yields 5-6 times a year! A close second in my favorites after the sea comes Catania’s local food market. Daily I will bring its best onboard to you!:)

Join us and taste the best flavors Sicily has to offer on the sea!
