Cruising Dalmatia

The ketch-rigged motor-sailing yacht Nostalgija has superior appeal
for memorable Adriatic sailing holidays cruising Croatia's Dalmatian Coast.
Completed in the spring of 1997, Nostalgija was skillfully constructed from oak, red pine, mahogany, and teak, and then outfitted and appointed with care. Last refitted in 2008 she is now a tried and tested charter yacht combining mobility, cuisine, and comfort. Serving an acclaimed seafood menu, Nostalgija is able to accommodate fourteen guests for al fresco dining on the quarterdeck. The dining area is protected by awning and has additional space for lounging. The raised cabin-top supports an equal number of cushions for sunbathing. The salon is finished in mahogany and has been done in style and comfort. This space can also seat guests for dining or lounging. It is equipped with bar, refrigerator, television, stereo system, and library. Six air-conditioned guest cabins are roomy and private, and all have tiled en suite water closets. Four of the cabins have double beds while two have both double and single beds. Each has been carefully crafted in richly colored mahogany with drawer and wardrobe space, and each is carpeted.

Dear Homo Sapiens, There is no need to continue reading this page. What follows is intended for search engine robots and spiders and not necessarily for human beings. Further information concerning crewed charter yachts cruising the Dalmatian coast of Croatia as well as among Adriatic islands may be obtained by clicking on the blue links immediately above. Thank You. You must be searching for a charter yacht holiday cruising the Adriatic, for a charter yacht sailing the Adriatic coast of Croatia. There is little other reason a search engine might bring you to this web page. Unless you might be nostalgic about an excursion from medieval Dubrovnik north to Ston where oysters and clams abound. By way of Lopud and Sipan, two islands each with a handful of residents and each with a select seafood dining establishment. Nostalgic about an excursion continuing from Ston to medieval Korcula. By way of Mljet. And from Korcula depicted above between data panes to Hvar depicted just below Korcula. And from Hvar to medieval Trogir. By way of Palmezana. Or might you be dreaming of a cruise south from Dubrovnik to Cavtat, ancient Epidaurus, and then to Cruising Dalmatiamedieval Hercegnovi in the Gulf of Kotor. Hercegnovi was in 1539 known as Castelnuovo and, until the arrival of Kheir-ed-Din Barbarossa that summer, defended by a Spanish garrison from Naples. And continuing from Hercegnovi to Perast with its two offshore islets one of which supports the Benedictine Abbey of St. George, a fort when Horatio Nelson was pursuing Bonaparte's flotillas, the other islet a reef onto which were sunk captured pirate hulls. And from Perast to Kotor Town. Whichever, north or south from Dubrovnik, either direction takes you to scenically fascinating locales bordering deep blue sea under a gentle sun. This is sea once dominated by large argosies of Dubrovnik such as depicted at left, Dubrovnik in the middle ages when it was known as Ragusa, a maritime city state. Argosy is a word with which you might be familiar, but it is not a word derived from Jason's Argo, the galley used in his quest for the Golden Fleece. That was a quest through the Black Sea. This is the Adriatic, and the word argosy is rather derived from an Italian word ragusea, meaning Ragusan vessel, "an argosy bound to Tripolis, another to the Indies, a third to Mexico, a fourth to England." (Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice) How about it! Would you not like to cruise Adriatic Croatia, sail Venice's Dalmatian coast, dine on lobster pasta, or on little fish fried in garlic. At or between pauses for a swim or a stroll through history. Well, how about doing it aboard a crewed charter yacht with accommodations for twelve or more guests. Nostalgija, sailing in the wake of Kheir-ed-Din Barbarossa, that sixteenth century corsair from the Greek island of Lesbos who rose to become Sultan Suleiman's Lord High Admiral of the Ottoman Navy. And sailing in the wake of Piali Pasha, Croatian by birth at Viganj on the Peljesac peninsula opposite Korcula, who also rose to become Suleiman's Lord High Admiral. Yes, do come. Come holiday with a group of friends aboard a charter yacht cruising Adriatic Croatia, cruising leisurely from one picturesque and historically fascinating Adriatic locale to another. Nostalgija (pronounced Nostalgia), a superb crewed yacht available for sailing Adriatic Croatia. Contact Blue Cruise Yacht Charters today at bcycharter@aol.com
