I'm Francesca, born in Ravello. What do I love about my job? Definitely to see my guests happy, to fulfill their wishes, to care for every detail of their reception and accompany them in the discovery of my land!
The booking went smooth and quick and Francesca provided a lot of information and booked the parking for us. The boat was easily found and Marco was there to explain the boat to us. He is a super nice guy and did a fantastic job. We had a fabulous day on the water, not cheap, but a day we will not forget sailing along Amalficoast and Capri.
Communication with Francesca from the very beginning to the end was excellent: she answered all my questions rapidly and provided clear and helpful information. The bist is amazing: new, clean with everything one would need during the day. Very happy with the journey we made and recommend to everyone!
Fabuleuse expérience avec C&Fet son équipe efficace et sympathique. Le service est parfait et le bateau superbe et très confortable. Nous recommandons C&F sans hésiter
Sehr freundlich und kompetent ! Wir waren stets in Kontakt , unser Skipper Marco war auch sehr hilfsbereit und sehr nett . Das Boot war sehr sauber, wir hatten einen traumhaften Bootstag .. Vielen Dank
Tout simplement Parfait !! Bateau impeccable, beaucoup de fonctionnalités. Les explications étaient parfaites ! Je recommande vivement !!
We had an awesome day on the boat. The communication with Francesca was easy and she gave us very good tips. The boat itself was super nice, in very good condition and easy to navigate even without having any experience with driving a boat. Stop where you want, have a swim in the open sea and have the best views of the most beautiful coastline. Definitely recommend booking a boat with Francesca!
Francesca was super responsive and nice, and the boat was AMAZING!! Can totally recommend.
The boat was new this year and surprisingly fast! Exploring the coast was an incredible experience, as well as going for lunch and being brought in from an off-shore morning! Would highly recommend. As a guide - we used about €60 of fuel and were out all day, although going pretty slowly at times. Thanks to Francesca and Marco! If we come back to Amalfi Coast we would certainly use C&F again.
Incredible boat - very new, clean and modern. And spacious! The communication between both Francesca the owner and Marco who helped give and collect the boat was excellent. Couldn’t recommend more!
Couldn’t ask for more from Francesca and Marco. Made everything extremely easy, very professional, boat was faultless. Look forward to seeing you both again!
Had a great experience renting from Francesca! She was extremely helpful in directions to the marina, even sending along the ferry times to get from Amalfi to Maiori. The rental experience was flawless and we were provided a map of the coast with additional suggestions for restaurants and coves/beaches to check out. Would recommend to anyone spending a few days on the coast!
Great experience and a must if you are at the Amalfi coast. The boat was perfect for this area. Thank you to Francesca and Marco for this unforgettable experience.
Amazing boat, very easy to handle and extremely friendly owner. I would definitely rent a boat with Francesca again!
It was a great time, everything was perfect! Thank you very much!!
I rented CF Hope with a friend for the whole day. The Service was very good, the boat was in very good shape and even for me without any experience driving a boat we had an awesome day. I would recommend everyone to rent a boat for one day when staying at the Amalfi coast, it is worth it.
Tutto perfetto! Francesca e Marco sono gentilissimi
Superb brand new Marinello speed Boat with many extras such as: Bluetooth stereo, shower, Goggles, Underwater Go-pro camera, more than enough comfortabele space for 6 adults. Also Christina (booking + always friendly advice) and Marco (boating instructions) are a great team. Thank you both for a perfect day with the most stunning views of this remarkable coast.
Perfect day. Very nice Service from CF.
Excellent experience, one the best things to do around Amalfi coast. Great idea for a couple or family. Francesca was extremely caring and helpful, she even suggested to change the booking dates due to suboptimal weather conditions. Boat was easy to manipulate even without any experience. Spend a wonderful day along amalfi coast and capri. Would highly recommend:)
My wife and me rented the 5,55 m, 40 HP "Marinello - Eden 18" boat from Francesca through SamBoat for on day. It was located in Maiori harbour and for us the perfect location to explore the whole Amalficoast inclusive of Capri in one day! The boat (one year old) was in immaculate conditions, is very easy to navigate (you don´t need a motorboat license!) has a lot of space for sunbathing, even if you would rent the boat with 6 people! There is a bluetooth radio on board, so you can listen to your own music through spotify i.e. if you want to. There is even a fresh water shower and they provide two snorkel masks, so it is a big fun to have swim stops in the clear blue sea. The boat rental is from 10 to 5 pm, which is comfortable enough to explore the whole coast (the boat runs appr. 24 knots!), to have a nice 90 minutes lunch stop at Nerano, ship around Capri and some swim stops. Weather was perfect on September 9th, so we had such a wonderful day on the sea. You do not need any guide for the trip! So we appreciated this private trip much more than booking one of the mass group tours that are offered all around the coast. Fuel consumption was 75 l a. 2,00 € for a whole day mostly driving, so take in account this 150 € extra charge for fuel. The service and communication through SamBoat was easygoing, secure regarding the payment and the insurance cover, which was included in the price. You will not need to pay 40 € for an extra insurance, that covers the excess, as the deposit is only 200 € and the offered insurance pays only for damages from 200 € onwards. Even the communication with the owner Francesca was so much welcoming! She answered every question immediately, sent me a video where to park our car directly under the marina for just 2 € per hour and has a nice guy, Marco, who gave us the instructions and to anchor the boat safely after return. The most comfortable service was that you don´t have to fill up the fuel by yourself, which would have incured significant time lost in you rental. Marco did it by himself after the return. To sum up, SamBoat and Francescas Marinello are very reliable and thoroughly recommendable, even to my best friends! So thanks a lot for this wonderful day.
