CAPTAIN FRANCO CORAZZA
Franco grew up in Porto Maggiore, a small Italian town about halfway between Ferrara and the Adriatic Sea. He has always been passionate about the water, perhaps inspired by his mother who had a great love of the sea. He was a keen diver, even as a child, and by 15 years of age had mastered deep water dives. The Underwater Club of Ferrara occupied his free time. He entered team and solo competitions and won numerous awards in various disciplines. It is no surprise that charter guests with a passion for diving are thrilled to be onboard with Franco.
His formal marine career began at the age of 19 when he embarked on the flagship Andrea Doria with the Italian Navy. At 21-years old he was hired by Costa Cruises and crossed the Atlantic on the last liner traveling the route from Genova to Buenos Aires. Next he explored the Caribbean, its sailing ships and crews, divers and adventurers. His wanderlust earned him the nickname Dreamer. With time and dedication his dreams became reality.
Franco is an accomplished seaman and an expert diver with professional experience in rigorous deep sea saturation diving. He generally excels at all sports, from hang gliding to mountaineering. Guests who relish an active charter, especially beneath the waves, will find Franco to be an excellent guide and patient instructor. He says, The wreck of the Rhone is my favorite spot to share with guests, its the most beautiful dive in the British Virgin Islands. Not all guests are divers but there is a simple remedy, I can teach them! Francos positivity is infectious. Whether guests prefer to play above or below the water line, they are sure to have the time of their lives aboard VISION.
COOK/STEW SILVANA ROLFINI
Silvana grew up on the family farm in northern Italy among many brothers and sisters. A deep respect for family and tradition are her core values. As a child, she spent happy hours in the kitchen helping her mother prepare hearty meals for their large family. From here she memorized the recipes and techniques of classic Emilia-Romagna home cooking.
For fish lovers, the Caribbean offers fresh catch daily. Growing up near the Adriatic, Silvanas favorite cuisine has always been fresh fish prepared in the many traditional styles of both northern and southern Italy. On board, she recreates these family style meals, sometimes with a Caribbean twist. Of course, Silvana is adept at planning meals per guest preferences, so meat lovers, vegetarians, or guests with any dietary restrictions no worries!
Silvana enjoys cultivating her organic vegetable garden and especially eating the produce. She likes to make jams from wild fruit, walk on trails looking for mushrooms, and canoe in lakes and rivers. Her goal aboard Vision is to create a pleasant and comfortable environment for relaxation after a day full of activity. Onboard Vision with Silvana feels a lot like coming home.
