Matteri Cantiere is much more than a boat hire yard. It is primarily a boatyard that specialises in the restoration of antique or vintage wooden boats such as the glorious range of boats from the Riva boatyard in Laglio and Maslianico. This long-established family business is based in Lezzeno on the road from Como to Bellagio. They can organise trips in their collection of classic boats to some of the main attractions such as Villa Balbianella, Villa Carlotta, Bellagio and Varenna. You can also visit the boatyard.
