They took an “old” Azimut 28, completely restored it, from the systems to the engines to the below deck, to transform it into a boat that offers cooking and Sunset Spritz experiences between Cinque Terre and Portovenere. In three years, they have given this experience to 3,000 people from all over the world. Now they have a new dream: to take their clients to visit the Cinque Terre Marine Protected Area, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in total silence. How? Electric sailing.
Garmin Beat Yesterday Awards 2020
Nicola Livadoti and his wife received from Italy’s most famous waterman, Giovanni Soldini, the Garmin Beat Yesterday Awards 2020, reserved for all those who have achieved something special and have a dream. Sports, outdoor, motorcycling and boating enthusiasts who have long cherished a dream of adventure and will have a chance to realize it in 2021.
“We come from Crotone,” Nicola told us. “and we are great lovers of the sea and boats. With love, my wife and I restored the Azimut 28 and moved to the Gulf of La Spezia. Easy to reach, wonderful, known worldwide for the Cinque Terre. We came up with something that already existed in the world, but was reserved only for the superyacht world. We brought to experience a day at sea in wonderful places with all the comfort that even a boat of not even 9 meters can offer, to people who in most cases by sea had never gone there. At absolutely affordable prices.”
Now Nicholas and his wife are about to realize what even a superyacht cannot offer. “We want to make our Azimut 28 an environmentally friendly vessel. We want to install an electric motor that will allow us to sail in absolute silence, without polluting. We are confident that it will be a memorable experience to visit the marine park in absolute silence, in eco mode.” And for this dream they won the Garmin Beat Yesterday Awards 2020.
Their “mentor” Giovanni Soldini agrees. “Although I’d like them to do it in a sailing catamaran,” Soldini suggested.
