North Sardinia Sail, a company with its headquarters in Cala dei Sardi, confirms its position as the main production company in the pleasure boat rental sector in Sardinia, with a turnover of 6 million and seven hundred thousand euros and 53 employees. This is what emerges from the magazine “Nuova Sardegna” study, reported in “Top 1000”, the insert on the main productive realities of the island that takes into consideration the 2019 budgets in the various economic sectors, and therefore in the period preceding the Covid-19 pandemic.
NSS Charter is ranked in 385th position, an important result for a company that realizes its work during the summer season with a growing trend compared to 2018, when the Olbia charter company had reached 476th place.
«The nautical charter represents a very important reality both at national and Sardinian level. – explains the founder of the NSS Simone Morelli – About 30 companies operate on the island for a total of over 300 boats and 2500 beds, and in the triangle Cala dei Sardi – Porto Rotondo – Portisco there is 12% of the national charter offer. Numbers that generate considerable business in the tourism and holiday industry. Unfortunately, Covid has broken the trend but, despite everything, the sector is defending itself thanks to the fact that the boat today represents one of the safest ways to spend your holidays».
To confirm Morelli’s words, there are data from Confindustria Nautica which explain how the search for distancing is giving a strong boost to boat rental. Today a sailing holiday is within everyone’s reach. The rental of a 10 meter boat with 3 cabins and 6 berths costs 1200 euros per week in August, less than a holiday home.
