CAPTAIN PIERVITTORIO TREBUCCHI
Piervittorio Trebucchi greets you with a sparkle in his eyes. You sense right off that your charter aboard Sagittarius will be superb. Piero, or Peter in English, was born in Brescia, Italy. He grew up in Desenzano, on Lake Garda, the perfect place for a boy to learn to sail. He had a natural talent for catching the wind, which earned him racing trophies in local sailing club competitions and fueled his sailing passion.
When Piero entered the university to attain an engineering degree he was forced to take a racing hiatus. After graduation, he resumed racing in various categories. He also became a successful entrepreneur, first in computing, and subsequently in the field of environmental technology in consumer electronics eco-sustainability.
Piero came in third overall in his first transatlantic race. He sailed the Transat des Alizes, from Portugal to Guadeloupe, in the 60-foot Open category. This event was the catalyst for years spent crossing the world’s oceans and exploring new and exciting ports of call. In 2012 he skillfully commanded Sagittarius in the transatlantic regatta (ARC), coming in first in the Open category, and getting the sixth-fastest time among 230 participating boats, with a top speed of 23.1 knots. Sagittarius covered 3,300 miles in 12 days, about 270 miles per day.
Sailing is Piero’s number one passion. But he is also accomplished at other adrenaline-infused sports from free-ride skiing to scuba diving to auto racing on asphalt, ice, and even the sands of the Sahara. His hobbies include reading books, especially comic books, and listening to jazz, soul, classical and classic rock. And of course, like a typical Italian, he is a connoisseur of great food and fine wine.
Piero has cruised with family, friends, and yacht charter guests throughout the Mediterranean and the Caribbean. His two beautiful little girls have grown up aboard sailing yachts. He can boast life-long friends the world over. He loves being a Captain and sharing his enthusiasm for the Caribbean islands’ most beautiful moorings, folklore, and local culture.
Charter catamaran Sagittarius is a testament to Piero’s engineering skill and environmental innovations. The yacht features green energy through photovoltaic panels and wind generators. Piero has realized a dream, successfully merging his passion for sailing and his eco-engineering acuity into his livelihood. A great reason for a sparkle in the eyes!
Charter catamaran Sagittarius is based in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Piero’s favorite sailing region, and is also available for Leeward Islands yacht charters subject to delivery fees. Sagittarius comfortably accommodates 10 guests in four queens and a king berth master cabin. The state-of-the-art equipment, huge double trampolines, and lots of toys and gear onboard provide plenty of sailing excitement and water sports fun. Captain Piero will see to it that your vacation is unforgettable.

Crew gratuity, although optional is customary at 15% - 20% of the charter rate for the Caribbean and 10% - 15% for the Mediterranean.
Advanced Provisioning Allowance:
For "Plus Expenses" charters, yachts request an Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA), which is generally estimated at 20% - 25% of the base charter fee for sailing yachts (catamarans and monohulls) and at 30%-35% for motor yachts. The APA essentially creates a bank account for the Captain to purchase provisions, fuel, dockage, food, beverages, bar, and other consumables on the charterer's behalf. The Captain will keep all receipts and manage a running balance of the account, so that expenditures can be checked at any time. Any amount not used will be refunded at the end of the charter. If during the charter the costs have exceeded the collected APA, then additional funds will be required for the outstanding bills. All purchases are transparent and nothing is marked up. The APA is used purely for the charterer's provisions and charter-related expenses.
