Marinanow has been featured in Nòva Sole24Ore on July 27, 2014.
In a nice article by Luca Tremolada, he describes the birth of the project. He also describes our ambition to use the same sytsems used in booking a hotel room in the nautical world as well as our objectives for the near future.

The platform (also available as an app for Android and iPhone) is called MarinaNow.
