The captain of Uhuru, Renato Marchesan, was born in Florence in 1953. Driven by a strong passion for the sea, at the age of 18 he moves to Punta Ala. Thanks to the precious friendship with the so called “il Cileno”, a local fisherman and life coach, he learns the ancient art of the sea. A few years later, he buys his first yacht and, since then, he begins an exciting charter activity, alternating it with underwater works, such as red coral fishing.
In addition to having lived in Egypt and Sudan, sailing in every corner of the Red Sea, Renato boasts a great competence aboard yachts up to 40 meters. In his book, "Prua al mare", Renato tells about his great experiences in the sea.
From 2013 Renato is completely involved in the management of Uhuru, taking care of the guests onboard and making sure they live a memorable and pleasant cruise.
Friendly and professional at the same time, Renato will be able to take you in total safety in the most hidden corners of Greece and Turkey.
Always with a great enthusiasm and desire to learn, Ferdi Guray is the deckhand onboard Uhuru. Ferdi takes very seriously every guests’ request. With 5 years of experience on yachts up to 30 meters, his professionalism will accompany you throughout the cruise.

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.
