Liguria Nautica is the only e-magazine for boating tourism in Liguria. Boating is very important to the Italian economy. Liguria Nautica believes it is the region of Liguria that is the centre of the Italian boating industry, historically, logistically and economically. Ligurian boating tradition has always stood out: the region’s seafaring tradition could only lead Liguria to cover a central role in the country. The Yacht Club Italiano, with head offices in Genoa, is the oldest Yacht Club in Italy, founded in 1879. Some of the most important shipyards were founded in Liguria, like for example the historic Sangermani, Cantieri Sciallino, Cantieri Navali di Lavagna, Cantieri Baglietto, or, more recently, Otam, Perini, Permare and Sanlorenzo. Today, Liguria is home to nearly 25,000 mooring places, RINA and other certification bodies have their offices in Genoa (just like some of the most important Marine Insurance companies, brokers and professionals) Ucina Confindustria Nautica has its head office in Genoa. It is certainly by merit that the most important boating event in the Mediterranean has been taking place in Genoa since 1966: the Genoa Boat Show. From the moment Liguria Nautica was founded, it has tried to promote boating tied to tourism. Just think about how the arrival of a vessel in a local marina can impact local tourism: mooring place, restaurant, shopping, fuel, car or bike hire to explore the local area, etc. The different sections cover a number of topics including boating, fishing, kite surfing sailing, culturefood (showcasing restaurants and Ligurian recipes), places, itineraries, shipping and the future. There are also our webcams, which are perfect for all those pleasure boaters, sports fishers and tourists who prefer to see the current weather and water conditions with their own eyes. There is also a brand new multimedia section, where photos and videos are the main focus.
