Renting Utility 7.48: sailing on a legend

Utility Portofino 7.48 is the iconic boat, entirely in wood, inspired by the English-style launches that used to cut through the Gulf in the Fifties. The first and most distinctive model built by our boatyard is available to all sea lovers for an outing in the Tigullio and Paradiso gulfs, skippered or independently, without need for the driver to have a boat licence. To savour the joy of sailing on a legend.

A day in the Portofino Gulf waters, cosy and discreetly sophisticated

You can start the day in Portofino or one of the Tigullio and Paradiso Gulfs main ports.
Utility and our skipper will take you to swim, sunbathe, do snorkelling, go fishing and relax in the most scenic spots of our coast: Zoagli, Rapallo, Santa Margherita Ligure, Paraggi, San Fruttuoso, Punta Chiappa, Camogli.

The ample fore sundeck makes you spend the day in complete relaxation, even when sailing at the boat’s full capacity of 8 passengers. A practical shower at the stern allows for rinsing away the salt after every plunge.

You can book your table for lunch in Portofino at O Magazin, our family's restaurant with tables by the sea, that offers the best catch of the day. Or you can decide where to stop, perhaps following the skipper's advice. Or else, if preferred, you can have a relaxing lunch aboard, under the shadow of the convenient Utility’s bimini top.

Available to our customers are towels, an icebox to keep the lunch cool, and snorkelling equipment upon request.

The rental fee includes diesel fuel.

And if you want to drive the boat yourself, you can hire it even if you don’t hold a boat licence. Everyone can experience the emotions that this wooden boat can offer.
