FRANCESCA STOCCO, MATTEO DALLA BONA
Francesca and Matteo are an Italian couple who decided to leave land life for the sea. Both of them are qualified Captains (RYA/MCA Yachtmasters) with a strong sailing experience, especially with regards to luxury boats. Both Francesca and Matteo sailed extensively all around the Caribbean, the Med and crossed the Atlantic ocean in 3 different occasions and routes, having logged more than 20’000 nm each.
They’re both excellent chefs as well, and their love for cooking is an important family tradition, just like for every good Italian! Before moving to their lives at sea, they’ve worked together in restaurants and bars, where they’ve learnt to cook the most delicious recipes and to mix the perfect matching cocktails.
Francesca has a degree in foreign languages - she speaks fluently English, Spanish, French and Italian, and she studied Economics and Management at university.
Her biggest passion is traveling and getting to know other cultures. She’s also very passionate about water sports and she’s a certified free diver and scuba diver. She enjoys photography and videography, trekking, and most outdoor activities - including, of course, sailing !
Matteo has a degree in Mechanics and he is graduated in Sciences for the Environment. He loves water sports and outdoor activities and he holds licenses in both scuba diving and free diving. One of his main strengths is to stay calm and focused also in difficult situations, managing to keep everyone safe and reassured. Apart from sailing his other big passion is fishing, a sport he practices everywhere he goes since he was 4. He speaks a fluent English, Spanish and Italian.
They’ve been together for the past 8 years and they’ve crewed together in catamarans and monohulls. They both have very strong social skills, they’re quite adaptive, open-minded and they truly enjoy meeting new people everyday. They love sharing their experience and their knowledge with their guests, and, of course, making everyone have the best time onboard Andiamo. Most of all, they’re a very enthusiastic couple who deeply loves their job!
