Yacht and Ship Agency

SACOMAR Agency, founded in 1996, is specialized in yachting industry and as registered Yacht & Ship Agents, can offer all kinds of services and facilities such as assistance to Mega Yacht captains and their guests during their vacation in Portoferraio harbour and in the waters of the island of Elba. Because of the significant increase of yachting over the last years, SACOMAR has had the privilege to serve the most important Mega Yachts operating in the Mediterranean during their cruises.
The relation with this type of yachts requires a high grade of professionalism, efficiency and discretion. The owners of the Agency take care personally of the relations with captains and/or ship-owners during their stay on the island of Elba. They offer services which require a 24 hour presence and availability, both assisting the captain in his ordinary nautical operations and satisfying the various requests coming from the guests of the yachts.

Pearls of Venus

The Arcipelago Toscano National Park is the largest marine park in Europe.
It includes the seven main islands of the Archipelago, some minor islands and cliffs. Like real pearls in a necklace, the islands differ from one another. Each though preserves traces of its history, each is unique; their common bond is the beauty of their natural setting.
Elba is the largest island of the Archipelago: its sea, its beaches, the green of the countryside, the tiny fortress towns, archaeological treasures, chestnut forests and more have survived over the centuries and continue to flourish.
On the island of Elba one gets the feeling of “good goods in small parcels” since one can travel through so may different landscapes and attractions, often in contrast with each other: areas scorched by sun and wind alongside others luxuriant and green with life, sandy and pebbled beaches, rocky coastlines and sheer cliffs.

The Marciana Marina Harbour

The little harbour has a sea-wall 330 metres long which shelters the port from high winds. Marciana Marina is an interesting departure point for the nearby island of Capraia (22 miles away) and for the coast of Capo Corso in Corsica ( 30 miles away).

The touristic harbour of Marciana Marina allows the mooring of ships up to 50 m. of length (even alongside).

The approach presents no particular difficulty. You recognize Marciana Marina from its long sea-wall with the round shaped yellow-ocre coloured Medicean tower dating from the 16th Century easily visible. The clear-coloured houses of the village with their red-tiled roofs follow along the whole of the southern water-front of the port.
