With their critical view on yachts and sailing they form and authority in the market. More2Sea is exclusive Benelux dealer of Italia Yachts.
Sail Your Dream
Italia Yachts produces boats with a strong identity and recognizability, designed for long navigation and with a timeless style, with a design not inclined to follow passing fashions but destined to remain timeless. Each project starts from the search for the perfect balance and the adequate balancing of volumes, with the aim of obtaining boats characterized by a great ease of conduction even with a small crew or family and a safe and marine behavior.
Since we designed and built our first model, Italia Yachts 12.98, our goal has been to create high performance boats, suitable for sailing, for those who love the sea and sail with passion and competence.
In every Italia Yachts model emerges the great competence of the shipyard’s design team, composed entirely of expert sailors. The different experiences and competences of each one, put at the designers’ disposal, bring the development of the product to a level of completeness and maturity that has no equal on the market, with the result of an extraordinary harmony of the hull lines, deck, and sail plan.
Op avontuur met Kapitein Piet
Captain Piet is an authority in water sports and wants to share his knowledge with other sailors to get the most out of your boat, or to make a the big step to an ocean-based adventure. His experience as Whitbread Around The World-sailor (now The Ocean Race) made him the perfect Captain to sail across the Atlantic Ocean with six famous Belgians for the popular TV-series “Over de Oceaan”. That same experience is now available for you and ask Piet to guide you through your next marine dream.
“Zeevarend publiek of niet, Piet Smet, inmiddels veel beter bekend als Kapitein Piet, weet te boeien. Door herinneringen op te halen uit zijn rijke praktijk, die telkens weer rake overeenkomsten hebben met ons dagelijks leven. Wijze lessen? Ach, volgens Piet is het leven in een klein team op een klein schip een enorme uitvergroting van de maatschappij. Klotsend in een snelkookpan op volle zee. Kapitein Piet biedt lezingen aan van verschillende lengtes. Naar wens rijkelijk ondersteun met exclusief materiaal uit Over de oceaan.
