Floating Life and Blu Jet Capital recently formed Yacht&Jet Life, a joint venture for the management, production, refitting, charter and brokerage of superyachts and business and private jets.

The companies said the venture gives superyacht owners the possibility of flying and traveling in freedom. Floating Life allows its members to combine a typically relaxing cruise with the possibilities of rapid five-star travel.

The venture offers owners services for sea and air travel under unified management. Yacht&Jet Life also offers special charter proposals and brokerage opportunities.

“In the last few years, thanks to our being a 'family office,' we have received numerous requests to manage not only yachts, but real estate and private jets,” Floating Life CEO Andrea Pezzini said in a statement. “Yacht&Jet Life was born with this purpose in mind — to consolidate our services as professionally as possible.”

“Blu Jet Capital has created an 'aeronautical boutique', able to satisfy the client in a tailor-made mode, no matter how small the needs may be, with a very wide range of services,” Blu Jet CEO Andrea Pavone said in a statement. “Our strength is our capacity to intervene in the design, maintenance and refitting of the interiors of any aircraft, applying different aspects of 'made in Italy.’ ”
