Pura Follia Guest Reviews

Sept 2022

Following her charter on board the Pura Follia, The client reported some points to me. They were crew were delighted with their navigation on board Pura Follia.
She was charmed by the service offered by the crew which was composed of 3 people instead of 2 initially planned.
The boat is beautiful and the captain transmitted his passion for sailing and the boat itself to all the guests. Pura Follia is a ´comfortable, luxurious and sporty boat´.
The little extra: the captain let them take the helm. They spend an extraordinary week on board.

01 - 08 July 2023: Portisco à Portisco

Pura Follia gave us moments of pure joy and happiness. Thank you from all of us with great
appreciation. Hugs to you all.

I too would like to underline the great professionalism and competence of Commander
Vittorio. We had a lot of wind, but the Captain always knew how to handle all situations with
great prudence and safety and we always felt good and had a lot of fun sailing. The trip has
been satisfactory, the ship is a very good one and sails very fast, very well conducted by
Vittorio which has shown a very high degree of experience and cooperation. We spent a
beautiful week. The situation on board has always been serene, courteous and amusing and
this is perhaps the most important thing.
