Choose Equinoxe Yachts.

After 30 years in business, Equinoxe Yachts holds a recognized position among the international marine market leader, which is the Italian excellence.

Corrado Di Majo, one of the founders, was, at 23, the youngest Italian navigator to complete the Ostar, transatlantic solo race from England to the US. The next year will be the youngest skipper ever to lead an Italian boat in the Whitbread, the round the world race which will take part in two more times, along with many Atlantic crossings.

Transform the passion for sailing in professional activities was a necessary step which materialized in 1986 when Corrado met Alessandro Ussi, top athlete of the Italian national athletics, and together they founded the Equinoxe Yachts.

During these decades EY has successfully developed two key lines of business:

  • The yachts SALE: over 500 yachts sold in 30 years.
  • the yachts CHARTER: over 10,000 contracts concluded in 30 years.

SALE :

  • sale of new boats as a ”dealer” of the world's leading shipyards: Beneteau, Azimut-Benetti, Ferretti.
  • sale Brokerage of the best available yachts in the world, sail or motor

in three decades Equinoxe Yachts has established itself as the Italian benchmark in the international nautical market brokerage, it was among the first members of Myba, the worldwide organization that brings together the best International brokers, and is part, since its inception, of Nautica Italiana, the association that gathers the excellence of the Italian nautical factory, the leader in the world with 40% of global production of superyachts.

in collaboration with some of the best Italian designers, first of all Nauta Yachts, Equinoxe has successfully developed, as a ”general contractor” and ”project manager”, sailing yacht of great success by following the complete process design, construction and delivery on behalf of its customers.

    in 1986, the idea at the origin of charters development, it was to combine the world of sailing, an exclusive niche, with that of the traditional tourism, to make sailing holidays accessible to many, even non-experienced sailors. Since then Equinoxe Yachts offered many additions to the cruise, with every service related: air ticketing, travel insurance, all types of hotel accommodation and ground services... What today appears normal, at the end of the 80s was the beginning of a success that continues today.
