Ligur Nautica: serene navigation in a sea of services
Since 2006 always at the side of its owners, from the sale to the maintenance of yachts
When we buy something such as a car, an appliance, or a smartphone, we expect precise and punctual after-sales assistance. In many cases, the difference between a good business and a truly efficient company is in the service reserved to the customers after the purchase.
This is why not only does Ligur Nautica deal with the sale of luxury yachts but also with transfers, maintenance, cleaning, winter storage, and everything necessary to ensure your boat will have a long lifespan.
Purchasing a boat with Ligur Nautica
Buying a boat is a process made of many pieces: Ligur Nautica aims at making all its phases as simple as possible. The first step is an interview with the owner to outline the profile of their ideal yacht. Once chosen, the shipowner can have an onboard viewing either in Marina di Varazze, if the boat is ready to be bought, or in the Absolute headquarters, in Podenzano, if the boat is still under construction. In the latter case, when the yacht is completed, it is ready for the tank and then for the official sea test with the owner on board in Marina di Varazze. At that point, the boat is delivered to the owner.
Boat transfers service
For years Ligur Nautica has specialized in port-to-port transfers. Even when the summer is over, shipowners increasingly need long transfers for their boats. Such transfers require preliminary preparation: our staff meticulously schedules the route and steps to carry out and checks both the state of the boat and of the safety equipment. The boat is then refueled, and we check that the pantry has everything needed to face navigation. Before setting sail, we also have a look at the weather forecasts.
For security reasons, the crew that deals with boat transfers consist of two people as everything must be carefully prepared for this type of service. While some transfers are carried out within a day, others need at least a stopover at an intermediate port. In this case, Ligur Nautica provides for all the needs related to the berth and the pre-departure checks on the following morning.
Yacht maintenance: a necessary operation
Sea enthusiasts wish summer never ends, but at some point, shipowners must prepare their boats to spend wintertime at moorings. In November, boats undergo a wintering treatment which allows them not to suffer any damage when moored. This particular type of maintenance guarantees an excellent condition of the yacht during the winter. Ligur Nautica provides this treatment directly into the water without bringing boats to dry areas. In fact, many shipowners usually use their yachts as second homes or for a weekend of absolute relaxation. At the end of the summer season, Ligur Nautica removes cushions, puts covers to protect the boat interiors and exteriors, and weekly washes the boat. It is important to carry out boat system maintenance as well. This is the reason why the air conditioning system, the engines, and the generator are started on a regular basis. Wintering is an essential process to maintain efficient, long-lasting, and high-performing yachts.
Ligur Nautica: a comprehensive range of services
In addition to its main services, Ligur Nautica provides a comprehensive range of services related to the world of boating. The Ligur Nautica team offers professional, innovative, and cutting-edge solutions, from repairs to leasing, from mooring management to rent and insurance. This is possible thanks to strong, long-standing partnerships with other leaders in the sector and to a team of young people who always keep abreast of boating.
In addition, three different generations work together in Marina di Varazze. Therefore, the Spina Family has a clear view of shipowners’ trends, needs, and expectations.
