“make sure you get the Wire!”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

If you are thinking to rent a boat in Numana for an all-day excursion along the Conero coast, make sure you get the Wire. I just came home from an amazing sailing day and I cannot thank enough Franco and Mario for their sailing ability but also for being so welcoming and so much in love with this boat and the Conero landscape that their enthusiasm becomes contagious. We had a kid with us today and I wish everybody could see the happiness and the excitament in his eyes when Franco and Mario made him discover all the secrets of this legendary vintage boat. Especially in August when everywhere is always crowded, the privilege to watch the small rocky bays, the hidden sandy beaches or the green mountain different views being in the open sea, having a bath in the cleanest waters, eating spaghetti and drinking wine with your friends is definitely worth the money you are going to be asked for.
Just make sure Franco and Mario will be your crew because they can really make the difference!

“Perfect from start to finish!”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

I can’t say enough about our sailboat ride on The Wire with captain, Paulo Serenelli. We began at 10:00 and returned to port around 18:00 – and it was a perfect day from start to finish. Paulo, our captain, and his experienced skipper, Franco, took us on an all-day excursion along the coast of Numana, Sirolo, and Porto Nuevo on their 80-year-old boat. What a treat! It was amazing to see the Adriatic Coastline from this view. Both Paulo and Franco couldn’t have been nicer or more accommodating. They made us feel as if we were sailing with our close friends. And Franco cooked up a delicious lunch of pasta, salad, and wine for us all to enjoy. My only complaint is that the day went too fast. I strongly urge you not to miss a ride on The Wire during your next visit to Sirolo!
