In the month in which Europe’s most important boat shows are held, the NSS Group is particularly active with all its three divisions that make the company a unique reality in the boating industry in terms of completeness of services and activities. Founded and run by Simone Morelli, a retired Navy officer, NSS Group operates in the boat sales sector with NSS Yachting, in tourism with NSS Charter, and in berth management with Marina Cala dei Sardi.
NSS Yachting between Cannes and Genoa
The NSS Yachting division participated in the Cannes Yachting Festival with the full range of Lagoon catamarans. Visitors had the opportunity to admire live the 42, the 46, the brand-new 51 and the 55, already presented last year at Cala dei Sardi, as well as the flagships Sixty5 and Seventy7. Moreover, for monohull lovers, NSS Yachting was also present at the Beneteau booth, where in addition to the Oceanis 34.1, 40.1, 46.1, 54 and 60, the new First 36 and 44, two boats with exciting performances, were on display.
As soon as the Cannes Yachting Festival is over, NSS Yachting is already looking at the Genoa Boat Show, from 22nd to 27th September, where the Lagoon range will be present with the new 51 and 55, while the Beneteau booth will still host the Oceanis 34.1, 40.1, 46.1 and the Oceanis Yacht range with the 54 and 60. The new First 44, Beneteau’s flagship performance model, will not be missing.
NSS Yachting is the result of a long experience gained in the boating sector, and more specifically in chartering and yachting management, which has led the company to establish itself also in the sales sector. Today NSS Yachting is the official dealer of the most prestigious shipyards and is the dealer of both Lagoon catamarans and Beneteau monohulls, sailing and motor-powered, as well as the importer for Italy of Highfield aluminium rigid keel inflatable boats. In 2019, 2020 and 2021 NSS Yachting won the Lagoon ‘Best European Dealer‘ award. The team of maritime professionals and brokers also deals with the purchase and sale of used boats worldwide and many sea and sailing-related services.
NSS Group’s activities
In addition to NSS Yachting, the NSS Group also includes the NSS Charter division, the main company in the yacht charter sector in Sardinia, founded in 1998 and today a benchmark in the sector worldwide, thanks both to the professionalism of its staff and to the large and constantly growing number of yachts in its fleet.
NSS Charter has five bases in the Mediterranean: in Sardinia in the Marina di Cala dei Sardi, in Tuscany in the Marina di Cala de’ Medici, in Campania in the Marina d’Arechi, in Sicily in Portorosa, and in the Balearic Islands in Palma de Mallorca. Another base, dedicated to holidays in the months that are winter in Europe, is the Caribbean in Grenada. The NSS Charter fleet as a whole comprises over 130 sailing yachts (monohulls and catamarans) equipped with every comfort, making the group the leading charter company in Italy in terms of number of boats and service quality.
Last but not least, Marina Cala dei Sardi, a safe harbour located in the Gulf of Cugnana in Sardinia between Portisco and Porto Rotondo in the heart of the Costa Smeralda, an ideal strategic point for exploring Tavolara Island, the Maddalena Archipelago and southern Corsica. Easy to reach and only 16 km away from the Olbia-Costa Smeralda international airport and the port of Olbia, Cala dei Sardi provides guests with a large reserved car park, 140 berths from 6 to 60 metres, water and electricity supplied at the quay, and ashore toilets, wi-fi, a shuttle service to the supermarket and the guarantee of 24/7 surveillance.
Cala dei Sardi is not a common port, but rather a lounge immersed in nature: the evocative setting is characterized by Mediterranean vegetation, a true oasis of peace in which to relax and find a unique and exclusive contact with nature. Guests can enjoy ample green spaces and relaxation areas, as well as a comfortable floating solarium from which to dive into the crystal-clear waters of the cove.
