Franco & Silvana
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, it's the most beautiful dive in the British Virgin Islands. Not all guests are divers but there is a simple remedy, I can teach them!" Franco's 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...read more
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, Silvana's 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.

What a wonderful trip exceeded expectations & that is saying a lot, as we had been super excited!! You treated us so well and adapted to our needs. Loved how you charged up the trip for good snorkeling, diving and sailing. Food was amazing! And we loved hearing your stories. Everything we needed, you jumped up and got. Such a great vacation, we did not work at all. We recognize how hard you worked, constantly!
Silvana; such an amazing amount of work you do.
Franco; also appreciate how you took care of us during dives. Just great all around.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Thank you for taking such good care of us (adults & children!). We enjoyed all the stories and information about the islands! If you ever need a deck hand, Logan is available!
Silvana was a wonderful hostess, very warm and she made the best desserts!
Fresh Wonder... I was so relaxed I couldn't drive my car when I got home <3 !
Franco was wonderful and was ready for anything.
Silvanna kept everyone well feed and was so nice to us, though her English was not great, we all communicated well enough.
For a 20 year old boat it was well cared for and everything worked fine. The sailing was excellent.
We made up the itinerary as we went along and it was great.
Tubing, snorkeling, swimming, scuba, and sailing, we couldn't have done much more, it was great.
Silvanna made great food and we had a great variety of drinks. Franco introduced a few new drinks as well.
Great time! We may do it again in a couple years.
It has been 4 glorious days and what can we say other than thank you, thank you, thank you for an unforgettable trip on our first catamaran cruise. You are both so delightful, so knowledgeable, so interesting and so much fun! So you brought magic to our trip which was already blessed with gorgeous surroundings, a piercing blue Caribbean Sea, the wind, the waves, a soft rain, and islands inhabited with warm natives, all contributed to a life-long happy memory.
Most of all, thank you for presiding over us re-taking our vows! Have we were outside Long Bay VI and within 15 minutes, Silvana changes to a perfect Maid of Honor dress with daisies; Captain Father Franco in his yellow pants and Kelly green shirt, and my wonderful husband and myself share vows to protect our love and marriage through the eyes of God and nature for the rest of our time. It was not only perfect in every way, it was fun & romantic & energizing.
Thank you both so much for accommodating our every wish and holding to our challenging demands of doing it all in 4 days! We did!! Thanks to you both!
Alisa & George

Vacations come and go, but your hospitality, experience, cooking, knowledge of the islands, and most of all, friendship has fill our vacation with lasting memories.
Thank you for everything and till we see you again, safe travels and all the best to you both!
Fair winds and following seas and long may your big jib draw!
Thank you so much for an amazing journey! We had such a great time.
Silvana, the cooking was amazing. The tiaramisu was the best on any boat in the Caribbean, and all of Italy! Muy delicioso!
Franco, you are the best boat driver in all the seas! You took care of us and showed us all the beautiful places. This was the best vacation ever and we will never forget it!
Thank you so much for a fabulous trip! We had nine glorious days of great sailing, snorkeling and relaxing. You were very generous with your time in allowing us to help with the sailing and you took us to some great spots for snorkeling.
Silvanas cooking was phenomenal and we are going to miss your pasta lunches when we get home! We will be looking for you as crew again when we book our next trip to the BVI!
