Davida Astarita

Davide was born in Italy by the sea, with a passion for mechanics developed since young age, so it was just natural for him to choose engineering studying in Nautical School. His career at sea then started on Cargo Ships in 1999.
After few years spent working on that industry Davide changed to Cruise Liners where he has been working until 2011. From there the step to the Luxury Yacht industry, with his first experience been on privately owned yacht on a world tour with owners onboard.
Very fascinated from that experience, Davide decided to keep working in yachting and consequently he had the opportunity to visit several amazing places around the world like New York, Boston, Panama, Colombia, Cuba, Canada, Caribbean’s islands, Bahamas and all the Mediterranean’s beautiful gems.
Davide likes to be part of a team that every day works to offer unforgettable moments to the guests and he’s happy to share with them those experiences.
