The president of the Brazilian Institute of Tourism (Embratur), Gilson Machado Neto, confirmed the sinking of 25 ships off the Brazilian coast to boost nautical tourism in the country.

«The proposal of the National Program for the Revitalization of Nautical Ecotourism is to reinforce and strengthen the importance of this segment for tourism.
