Acquera Yachting announced today that they have been granted the commercial rights to manage the superyacht berths in Casamicciola Marina as well as the sole helipad on Ischia Island. The yachting haven located in the Gulf of Naples is home to the 158-berth marina and helipad that is a mere 15-minute flight from Naples Capodichino airport.
Casamicciola marina, opened in 2004, has 4 quays including the 100m Molo Barocco quay which comfortably accommodates yachts up to 90m. The marina offers yachts 24h assistance, mooring assistance, shore power and water supply, and grey and black water collection.
The island's helipad will also be under the commercial management of Acquera Yachting, and will enable yacht guests to reach the Ischia with minimum effort. It is also an opportunity to enhance the client experience, with the offering of alternative itineraries to the more well-known Capri and Amalfi Coast. Ischia is an excellent yachting destination for superyachts looking for somewhere off the beaten track.
The agreement has been signed with Marine del Golfo, a subsidiary of Acquera Yachting who will manage the berth and helipad. This new development will strengthen Acquera Yachting’s position in the Gulf of Naples, where they have offices in both Naples and Marina di Stabia. With the guaranteed service offered by management of the helipad, Ischia is not just a cruising destination but an ideal turnaround point for charter yachts with guests flying to the island to start their charter.
The volcanic island in the Bay of Naples is renowned for its stunning natural beauty and thermal spas. Awash with spectacular landscapes and countryside, it is without a doubt one of the lesser known jewels of the Mediterranean.
Stefano Tositti, CEO of Acquera Yachting, expressed his satisfaction regarding the agreement: “It is a privilege for us to have been awarded the management of the superyacht berths located at the marina and the helipad. This is an important and tangible development for us, in a strategic area that is considered one of the most important in the Mediterranean”.
“With guests looking more and more for experiences off the beaten track I’m thrilled to be able to add this to our portfolio of services. This will without doubt enhance their experience and create a smoother customer journey for everyone,” added Acquera Yachting Commercial Director, Caterina Oliviero.
Acquera Yachting is part of the Acquera Group that is made up of two divisions:
Acquera Yachting focuses exclusively on providing full agency services to superyachts globally. Tositti and his team have an extremely well-documented track record in the industry and is led by Commercial Director Caterina Oliviero who has worked with Tositti in the yacht agency business since 2004.
Acquera Experience is a first in the industry and is an exclusive private lifestyle members club that will be accessible to yacht owners by invitation only. Their headquarters are in London, and a New York office is to open in 2019.
