… you will find our base near the former Edilnautica shipyard, about 1 km from the ferries. By car you should follow the directions for Porto Azzurro/Marina di Campo. At the second roundabout you go to the left, towards the «Zona Industriale» and follow that road until you see the shipyard in front of you. Then follow the curve of the road to the next crossing. On your left, you will see the «Bricofer» shop. Turn left again and follow the road until you pass a hump. You will then see a large shed. Before the bridge turn left once again and you will then be in front of the shipyard gate. Our yachts are moored just beyond on the right.
