LEGISLATIVE REQUIREMENTS OF ITALIAN WATERS
A vessel is not “driven” but it is “controlled” through a “Captain”.
In Italy, in order to “control” a pleasure sailboat, or be authorized to lead it, one should have a “Sailing license”, therefore be qualified to control pleasure sailboats and, in order to use the radio, one should have a “Limited phone operator certificate for ships”.
A sailing license is issued by the Port Authority and it takes approximately two months to purchase it, considering the course as well as practical and theoretical exams, while the certificate is issued by the Italian Post Office.
Various type of sailing licenses are available and are characterized by the type of vessel (sail or motor) to be used and the distances from the coast to be reached.
If you already have a sailing license without any sailing limits, you can rent (the correct term: rent a bare hull) a vessel from our fleet (technically known as a bareboat) and use it independently with your family or friends.
