CEO of Artisanal and LIFE ON A BOAT

“Life on a boat” began as an business idea more than 10 years ago.

The purpose of our work was to connect the new generations with the tradition and the history of the Adriatic and Ionian region.

In January 2017 we brought to life this idea. Full of passion, love and dedication every day , in the last 2 year we have realized 7 different models of wooden traditional boats and a classic motorboat. Proud of what we have done till now, we are working  even more to complete the “Life on a Boat” project with the sailing courses and the Interactive Naval Museum.

Our History

We are a small family business in the production of the traditional wooden boats. Everything started more than 10 years ago as a business idea. The love for the profession as engineer of a father, the love and desire for freedom in the sea and a dream of a daughter connected them with father and son love for the history and boats. 2 ideas dedicated to the same thing, the SEA, the tradition became 1.

LIFE ON A BOAT came from the family business ARTISANAL and the ALBANIAN SPORTS MARINE organization. Is a project dedicated to the traditional maritime life that started just in January 2017. In the last 2 years, we have offered to the market different models of classic wooden boats. We are working to complete the sailing programs for all ages and our researching work for the Interactive Naval Museum.

Our plan for the next 5 years is to offer to the region the complete range of classic boats, a sailing team that can represent the country and a Naval Museum.

We love our job

Our mission is to connect people to the maritime life and culture by being able to experience it through classic boats.

Life on a Boat is focused on bringing people of different generations to the maritime culture.

The best way to introduce that is by offering a  range models of wooden boat, the opportunity to visit a small artisanal dockyard (a small interactive museum) and regattas with sailboats. Important part of our work is to teach to young generations the respect for the maritime life.


Our aim is to be part of the maritime life in the region with classic wooden boats.

Our company wants to promote the tradition in the Adriatic-Ionian Region. We would like to provide a window to the maritime world and represent our shared European heritage. We want to be a big family and to grow together offering the best emotion that  sailing culture can give.
