The Navigare experience is like none other.
Since 1979 we have been devoting our life to yachting…
Paolo Farris has been fascinated with the sea and boats since his childhood. Born and raised in Sardinia – Italy, he grew up sailing, but he has turned his passion into job too early, first skippering his charter boat and then managing his own fleet of Grand Soleil in both Mediterranean and Caribbean sea.
With the advent of Internet, the brokerage business took shape in 1999.
He has tried his best to make the wish of a branch in northern Europe come true
– Nowadays more than ever it’s time to create a bridge for all yachtsmen in Northern Europe who look with interest to the Mediterranean –
