We are in the post-war years; Viareggio reconfirms itself as the most important Mediterranean hub in the field of shipbuilding, with a particular propensity for the pleasure boat industry. Conscious of the role and importance of this industrial sector, the entrepreneurial venture by Giuseppe De Felice, founded in 1958, had the goal of answering the needs of those involved in the field and providing an increasingly technical and professional support for maritime, customs and tax issues.This idea constituted the basis for the founding of the Maritime Agency that in the course of the years has established itself as the point of reference and exchange for shipowners and operators involved in the pleasure boat industry.This gratifying recognition directly “on the field” is the result of the expertise matured and of the competences acquired, thanks also to the continuous in-depth study of national and international maritime and customs legislation. Continuous updating (together with several decades of experience and the ability to solve complex issues) is the essential founding principle of De Felice’s way of working – an always “active and proactive” subject in a field so important for the development of the global economy.
Today the company – with its over 60 years of experience in the world of pleasure yachting – offers qualified, high-quality consultancy and training services to most shipyards, shipowners, captains, ports and connected industries involved in the field. This variety of offers and of clients affords De Felice a 360° vision of the nautical market and an overall perception of the business, adding value to the tasks entrusted to it (from yacht management to specific consultancy).The level and array of services that De Felice offers megayacht owners, captains and professionals in the field, is of high added value and the consultancy provided is always competent and impartial. People who turn to De Felice can count on professionalism, competence, punctuality, honesty and ethics. Clear goal of the De Felice team is to support clients by offering a customized and reliable management service directed at shipowners, captains, shipyards, refit shipyards, port facilities (tourist and commercial ports) and brokers. Additionally, in order to be consistently prepared to provide a professional service that answers law requirements and to work with documents that respect EC and extra-EC standards and regulations in the yachting field, the De Felice team is always up-to-date on the laws, regulations and requirements requested by the competent authorities.
