tours. The spacious salon is decorated with shells, amphorae and
showcases of sailor’s knots. At the bow a mermaid keeps watch for the
safe navigation of the ship. The Kapetan Jure provides 15 cosy guest
cabins each with air conditioning, shower and WC. Due to the shape of
the ship's hull the size of the cabins may vary. A spacious living room
suite on the quarterdeck and a sundeck with cushioned sleeping mats play
a part in contributing to the welcoming atmosphere, inviting you to
relax and take in the sun and surrounds.
At 32 x 7.6 m the Romantica was
launched in 2007 and is a shapely two mast motor sailor which combines seafarer
romance with the spirit of the age, style and comfort. One of the most
important things for the captain is the smart appearance of his ship. The salon
and exterior have upscale facilities with a lot of fine details: the salon
tables are decorated with noble intarsia, the corresponding benches are covered
with precious, sun yellow leather. The large sundeck on the Romantica offers
plenty of space to settle back and enjoy the sun. The 16 guest cabins are
spacious and air-conditioned including shower and WC. The bathing platform at
the stern enables easy admittance for a swim in the Adriatic Sea.
