The Yacht Club Porto Rotondo was founded in 1985 by a group of people who were passionate about the sea and about Porto Rotondo, and it has always been located in the beautiful larch-wood building created by the Venetian architect Malgaretto.
In 1987, while maintaining a certain autonomy, it was incorporated as a "detached" base by the Costa Smeralda Yacht Club, presided over by the Aga Khan. In these years the active collaboration with "the parent company" of Porto Cervo was established with the lively exchange of influential members, the intense international sporting activity and the prestigious assemblies of classic boats, which came to an end after 10 years.
The Club set out along a new course with a group loyal to the glorious "flag" under the guidance of Admiral Luciano Fontana with a dynamic Board of Directors who were confident about the ability of the club to implement important initiatives and enhance the great resources of Porto Rotondo in an international context.
The Yacht Club Porto Rotondo has prestigious members from Italy and abroad, the benefit of twinning with important sports clubs, and attracts sponsorship from renowned international brands, thanks to which it can deploy an activity rich in social and sporting events.
