Cantiere Nautico Desenzano - Nuova General Nautica

General Nautica: “Boats are our passion!”

In the Gulf of Lake Garda between Desenzano and Sirmione, there is the General Nautica, an annual and summer boat storage. Besides the storage for boats, our activity also deals with the maintenance of wooden and fiberglass hulls, nautical assistance services and crane services.

General Nautica is a historic shipyard of Lake Garda, in fact, Castrini Nicola has been doing this activity for over 22 years following in the footsteps of his father Castrini Rino.

Over the years, the structure has expanded its services and, to date, we also have a petrol station for green petrol boats and wide free parking for all our customers.

Since 2007, General Nautica has started the service of rental boats without a driver and currently has:

  • N° 1 boat with driving license;
  • N° 5 boats with driving without a license.

The boats are all monitored with GPS useful for an immediate intervention in case of failure and sound and visual warning for danger weather mutation.
