Dolcevitacat Description

This beautiful Sun Reef catamaran is exceptional. As an owner specific interior, Dolce Vita was built with warm inviting wood crafting, unique for the Sun Reefs. Her European amenities and soft furnishings provide a fashionable blend of modernity to go with the more traditional wood paneling. Dolce Vita feels sophisticated yet inviting!
The “heart” of the boat centers around the huge galley bar inside the salon, where great service and availability of the crew is well ensured! Guests get to see the magnificent creations coming out of the oven and bar with this wonderfully interactive experience.

There are many more options for where guests can gather or hide away throughout their stay. Seating for dining is available in the salon, the aft cockpit area, and the panoramic upper deck. Besides the table seating, each of these areas have additional seating, and lounging space and mats. Another great place to relax is the bow and trampolines. Big bolster cushions and bow seats make it enjoyable whether you are underway watching the sails catch the wind and the dolphins frolic, or whether at anchor watching the kids play in the water or enjoying a novel. Done relaxing? Jump in the water to enjoy Dolce Vita´s extensive collection of water toys that are loved by both kids and adults!

Dolce Vita offers accommodation for 8 guests in 4 queen ensuite cabins. It´s a perfect layout for couples wishing to share their adventure, or for a small or extended family. The spacious comfortable cabins and the days of fun in the sun, paired with fine dining on board, will have you sleeping like a baby. Come join us and enjoy the sophistication and fun, come live “The Good Life” with Dolce Vita!

Captain Giacomo (“Jack or Jaco if easier”) D´Andrea ~
was born and raised in Milan, Italy, and moved to Genoa after high school to attend a Marine Sciences University. On family holidays Giacomo fell in love with boating from the age of 4, sailing on Lake Como, racing Optimists at age 12, and joining the National team at 18, where he qualified for the European Championship! A lover of the open air and sports, he also played soccer, basketball, and was even a boy-scout. Giacomo also completed 2 months working with researchers and administrators of an Italian Marine Protect-ed Area as part of his maritime education.

After completing his University Studies, he worked as an Optimist and 420 instructor, coaching a junior Italian national team, RS Feva, where he went to the European and World championships as part of the staff of the Italian Federation. One of the team he coached was the Bronze medal winner at the World Cup.

In 2010, he was approached by a sailing club member to work as a deckhand for some charters. He found it a good way to unite career and passion, and his hard work has paid off. Along with his Marine Sciences Degree, Giacomo now holds a 200-ton Master unlimited captain´s license and a dive certification. Fortune has sent him to some fun places, he loves French Polynesia for its people, and the Greek Islands for the warm sailing winds. He has crossed both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans; and has worked on luxury yachts in the Mediterranean and the Caribbean. His latest hobby is kitesurfing, and his motto is to Never Give Up!

Giacomo´s friends describe him as Friendly, honest, and talkative. He likes keeping the charterers active and busy, taking guests exploring by both boat and ashore. A major focus for him is the safety and comfort of the guests and keeping a relaxed atmosphere on a well-maintained yacht. He cares a lot about the crew and boat, and also loves discussing and adapting the charter schedule to make it the most interesting and enjoyable for the guests aboard.
Andiamo!



Chef Claudia Sardella ~
grew up near the sea in Avellino, Italy, with one brother, and two cousins who were like brothers to her. She studied cooking at ALMA (Scuola International de Cucina Italiana), which included working in Michelin Star restaurants. Claudia has 14 years´ experience on private and charter yachts, has sailed the Mediterranean and Caribbean, and has crossed the Atlantic Ocean.

Guests love Claudia´s Mediterranean Cuisine, especially pastas and fish dishes, although she especially enjoys creating Asian and other gourmet style foods. While on charter, she likes interacting with guests, and, if children are aboard, playing with or teaching them some sailing when time allows. This kind and educated young lady is enthusiastic and welcoming, while still keeping a careful eye out that the guests and boat are attended to.

Claudia is a big fan of travel. Her sporting favorites are cycling, trekking, and snorkeling. As a young girl she participated in classic, modern, and contemporary dance. Her motto is “Remember Always to Dare”!
