The third edition of the event 'By Tourist on the Sea' is scheduled from the 4 -7 May 2015 from Naples to Castellammare di Stabia.
The event is organized by the company By Tourist, with guests, charter brokers and tour operators, engaged in three days of excursions along the coast, to promote marinas, beautiful locations and flavors of the Campania coast. The Marinas involved are: Marina Molo Luise in Mergellina and Stabia Main Port, the new marina in the old town of Castellammare di Stabia.
"An initiative fully supported by entrepreneurs from Campania" - said Luisa Del Sorbo, creator and organizer of the event "The first year we sailed in the Sorrento peninsula, the second edition we moved between the Amalfi Coast and the area of Stabia, this year we will depart from Miglio D’Oro Park Hotel in Ercolano, therefore in the shadow of Vesuvius to move from the city of Naples to the city center of Castellammare di Stabia”
The event was created in 2013 with the objective of strengthening trade relations in tourism among the three most important sectors of the National economy: Charter and Maritime Agencies, 4 and 5 star luxury hotels and Italian and foreign tour operators. The event has developed considerably in a short period, to the point where we can count on the participation of prestigious names in the superyacht field, with charter brokers coming from Monaco, Zurich, London and Fort Lauderdale. Among them: Ocean Independence, KK Superyacht, Luxemarine, All worldwide yacht, Charter World and many others.
Among the partners of the event there are the leading companies in the maritime, tourism and gastronomy fields. From the Maritime Agency Luise Associates to Stabia Main Port (new port in the old town of Castellammare di Stabia, adjacent to the 28 hot springs, UNESCO Heritage). From The Bikini in Vico Equense to the starry restaurant Il President in Pompeii, the Marine Protected Area of Punta Campanella to Marina di Chiaiolella, and the Miglio D’Oro Park Hotel to the archaeological site of Herculaneum.
This year's program therefore includes the arrival on Sunday, 3rd May of a team of Italian and foreign superyacht captains that will visit the Palumbo Shipyard in Naples, combining the technical meeting with a walk in the historic center of Naples, a guided visit to Naples underground and dinner with Neapolitan pizza to Sorbillo 38.
The Miglio D’Oro Park Hotel of Ferlaino family will host the captains on the 5th May with a course on maritime security.
During the 6th of May are scheduled meetings aimed at business with the charter companies and tour operators in the luxury sector. Participants include: Marinas, luxury hotels, restaurants, and travel companies, with previous accreditation, of course.

"The schedule - explains Francesco Luise, administrator of the Maritime Agency Luise Associates - is in direct response to the needs that over the years our customers from the luxury sector have communicated to us. Visiting the Marine Protected Areas, navigating from port to port tasting local specialties with renowned chefs, and traveling by boat or luxury car, just as their VIP customers would".
The Motor Yacht Silver Star will accompany the guests along the coast, recognizing latitude and longitude of the landing points, but especially exploring the potential the coastline has to offer anyone traveling this area by sea.
A light lunch will follow with a fascinating talk at the Bikini Bay given by Giorgio Scarselli. He will present guests to the archeological site of Stabia and the presentation of the Royal Bourbon Shipyard of Castellammare di Stabia, today Fincantieri. He will, of course not forget the site of ancient Pompeii, which will also be the inspiration for the meal, a tasting menù with the old recipes of Pompeii before the eruption of Vesuvius, thanks to the Michelin-starred chef Paolo Gramaglia of the restaurant Il President.
"The marinas are the ideal access for who want to know the Campania from an environmental and cultural profile- explains Ettore Cucari, head of the Incoming for Fiavet - And I must say that the company By Tourist is doing a great job, bringing together the private to the maritime and the culinary sector, and presenting an integrated tourism offer where the boat has a central role, indeed crucial."
