Dardo, a 40-seater boat that is unique in its size, built in 1955 in mahogany and restored in 2021 following the original technique of the time, offers quiet and safe sailing.

The boat is suitable for shuttles to and from grottos and restaurants, for tours with or without a guide, and also for private events.

On board you will find a mini bar, music system with microphone.

The boat has an open roof to enjoy the beauty of the lake to the fullest, but in case of rain or strong wind the roof can be closed in seconds.

For the coldest periods a heater helps to keep a pleasant temperature.
