I fell in love with Bel Ami at first sight! I simply enjoy every moment spent on this irresistible wooden beauty.

Pila kept his promise - he caught an octopus for us in every bay! The one he cooked was the best meal ever!

Toni Butto / Italy, 2018

Whatever port or bay we sailed into, all the locals recognized the boat and the skipper - Bel Ami and Pila - true Legends! Next summer - here we go again!

Pila taught us how to listen to nature, and Jope showed us the most beautiful hidden parts of the Adriatic Sea. We enjoyed mesmerizing moments under the sails, quiet evenings under the stars, night swimming in the company of plankton .... Thank you for everything, beloved sea people!

The best moment of the week was when we were doing a slalom between many anchored boats whose crews were staring at us motionlessly. We were sailing and tacking close to them and then we anchored – without using an engine!!! The sailing adventure of a lifetime!

Jeppe Nordin / Sweden, 2017

We came to Bel Ami because we were watching Mamma Mia II. From now on we will watch Mamma Mia II because we fell in love with Bel Ami. No words to thank you enough!

The kids were so preoccupied with the boat that they forgot about all the toys and gadgets we brought! Pila took out of the sea amazing shells that they were selling along the way. They caught their first fishes! Pila taught them how to dive. Unforgettable family adventure!

Christopher Winckler / Austria, 2019

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! We thought something like Bel Ami doesn’t exist anymore! Breathtaking moments on the bow in the hammer during the sunset! We will be coming back that is for sure!

Eduardo Aldi / Italy, 2019

In whatever port we sailed in, everyone was staring at this wooden beauty as enchanted. We felt so proud to be 'part' of Bel Ami.

George White / Australia, 2017

Sailing on Bel Ami is not comparable to any of our previous sailing experience! Being so close to the sea while sailing upwind! The ship is like a special sea galaxy! And Pila is the true legend of the Adriatic!
