The Kapetan Jure and Romantica sail alternate weeks. All cabins on the
Kapetan Jure and Romantica are en-suite. Facilities on board each boat do vary
a little, therefore prices differ depending on the sailing date and boat

below.

Kapetan Jure

At 27 x 7m the Kapetan Jure has notched up an impressive 100 Adriatic 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.




 


Romantica


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.
