Your cruisers MS Aneta, MS Orkan and MS Columbo

The man who built the MS Aneta was inspired by the ideas of his cruise guests, and even integrated them into the boat plans. During the renovation work, the wishes of the guests were also a priority. There is a warm welcoming holiday atmosphere on this lovely boat, from which you can hop into the turquoise wet of the Mediterranean whenever it is at anchor.

The Vuković family has bought the MS Orkan in autumn 2013. Captain Ante makes sure that all his guests spend an unforgettable holiday on his boat. It has a capacity of only 20 passengers and there is a familiar atmosphere on board. Make yourself comfortable and unwind – on one of the deck chairs in the sun or in the air conditioned saloon.

The Ercegovic family has been spoiling their guests for over 5 years on the MS Columbo. In the meantime, their sons have taken over as captains. A relaxed atmosphere is what you'll find on board. On the sun deck there is enough space to recover from the cycling sections of the route! And if you need a cool down, just jump in from deck into the crystal clear waves of the Mediterranean.
