Our difference

Why chose Smart Own?

Our boats

Our boats are brand new and professionally maintained by our own certified technicians.

Our crew

Our crew is carefully selected through a rigorous and competence based recruitment process. All Smart Own employees are competitively paid to retain the best talents and encourage drive.
All Smart Own skippers are regularly trained by senior Italian captain Alessio Tumbiolo with emphasis on marine navigation, safety and courtesy towards passengers.

Expat managed company

Smart Own management exhibits professionalism, reliability and integrity. This is a company you can trust as your long term business partner.
