Cruise the beautiful Adriatic Coast


Imagine yourself reclining under an azure sky, as the polished teak deck moves almost imperceptibly with the rhythm of the Mediterranean and a refreshing breeze ruffles the air. You’re relaxed aboard your very own yacht as it glides between the picturesque ports along the Adriatic coast – where there’s a blissful absence of mammoth liners boasting ever-larger passenger numbers.

Our magnificent vessels carry up to just 40 guests, which means you'll receive more personal service from your charming crew, ready to attend to your every need. With so few travellers, an exclusive yet convivial atmosphere prevails.

The modest dimensions of our yachts allow us to visit less-accessible and attractive ports and islands, such as Mali Lošinj, Rab and Korčula for a much more intimate and authentic experience. We often sail between islands and the shore, affording unhindered panoramas, with the opportunity to swim in some breathtaking spots. The memories of a yacht cruise along the Adriatic will remain with you for a lifetime.


 All of this is included


  • Enjoy a relaxed atmosphere in a modest-sized ship with a dedicated crew
  • Make the most of overnight moorings – take evening strolls ashore and sample the local cuisine
  • Admire spectacular coastal views generally inaccessible to larger cruise liners
  • Enjoy swim stops in idyllic bays and coves in secluded island locations
  • Daily breakfast, some lunches and dinners, as well as the Captain’s Dinner Engaging, expert-led walking tours of cities steeped in history
  • Perfect balance between shore excursions and time to relax on board
  • Return scheduled flights from a choice of regional airports
  • The services of our experienced tour manager throughout


Life on board


Take in spectacular coastal views from the comfort of a sun lounger or hammock on the ship’s ample Sun Deck. On the deck below you will find the elegant restaurant and bar, beautifully furnished and fully air-conditioned. The stylish terrace area with its comfortable seating provides the perfect spot to catch up on some reading or for a chat over a coffee with your fellow travellers.

Each day begins with an excellent breakfast, a fine selection of hot and cold options, while lunch and dinner feature mouth-watering menus that draw attention to local cuisines. From hot meat and fish dishes to refreshing salads, they’re all freshly prepared and served with a beaming smile. No cruise is complete without the Captain’s Dinner, of course, when delicious Croatian and Mediterranean cuisines are served.

There is little formality on board – shorts and t-shirts are the order of the day, and as there is no seating plan, you choose your own table and dining companions. After just a few days of this extraordinary experience, you’ll be on first-name terms with the crew and many of your fellow guests. This is exactly how holidays should be.

The perfect balance


Our thoughtfully planned itineraries allow plenty of time at sea, so you can fully experience the unique delights a sailing holiday can offer, with frequent opportunities to swim in idyllic locations, making for a very special and memorable cruise.

Picture a typical day on board: spend the morning sailing the turquoise waters of the Adriatic, taking in magnificent coastal vistas and the invigorating breeze. You have the opportunity to cool off with a swim off the back of the ship – as if it were your own! Relax back on board as your crew serve a delicious lunch in the restaurant, before we moor in our next port of call. Join our included excursions ashore, with free time after to explore. Enjoy dinner independently in a cosy restaurant and sample the local fare before returning for your favourite nightcap on the ship’s terrace.
