Fabio's adventure begins at the age of twenty, when he embarked for the first time as a skipper on board a private yacht, an experience that makes him discover how his great passion, the sea, could really become a career. After a period spent as a Base Manager of a charter company, Fabio soon got back at sea as a Captain aboard several private and charter yachts, exploring much of the Mediterranean and beyond.
Divemaster for pleasure, his knowledge of the sea is comparable only to that of gastronomy, another of his great talents, that he decided to cultivate by opening an Italian restaurant in Brazil where he spends most of his time when he is not at the helm of a yacht. Determined, precise and professional, Fabio masters great mechanical and hydraulic skills and keeping the yacht in perfect condition is among his priorities as Captain. Strongly appreciated by the crews, he always manages to provide a warm still discreet service, adapting to the needs of individual guests on board.
Italian mother-tongue, he speaks fluently English and Portuguese and a basic Spanish.
