5 votes

1313741908gusarska_noc_omis1_601913332Pirate battle week – 16.-23.8.

DubrovnikSplit route

Romanca is a part of the Omiš pirate battle every year on August 18th. It is a tradition that is very important for the boat.

Romanca has been a part of it for years, and it is always on national television.

The guests have a choice to stay on the boat and be a part of the show, in which case we organize pirate costumes for them. We organize dinner in a great restaurant called Radmanove mlinice, so if the guests would prefer not to be on the boat during the show, they can stay at the restaurant or in the city.

The event lasts 3 hours, from 7 to 10 PM.

The guests on Romanca in 2013 were a part of the battle, and they really enjoyed it.

This is a great opportunity participate in something unique.

Sailing in Croatia

5 votes

Rent a boat for the most rewarding cruise you could ever dream of.

Croatia has always been considered a paradise for boating holidays, and this is surely the most suitable definition for this area of the Adriatic Sea.

005_Dalmazia_BrelaAn endless number of islands create a continuum of archipelagos, all different from each other and all utterly charming.

The history of navigation has left its marks everywhere on the mainland coast and on the islands. Everything here shows the ancient symbiosis between man and the sea, from the poor life of the fishermen, up to the glitz of the rich international traders.








Along the coasts of Dalmatia we can trace the history that goes from the first ancient Greek and Roman cultures, arriving to the latest fingerprints of the Maritime Republic of Venice and the Austro-Hungarian Empire.









But what most attracts sailors is the peculiarity of the landscape, the easy and pleasant sailing conditions and the innumerable bays and harbors. Facilities and services to yachtsmen are always great and widely scattered in more than hundred marinas.

The sea is clean and transparent like in few other places in the Mediterranean Sea.
For those wishing to rent a boat here, thousands of yachts are available from North to South.

Furthermore Croatia is easily accessible by plane from many European airports and by ferry from the Italian coast.

Boat rental in Italy – Aeolian Islands – Panarea

5 votes

The Aeolian Islands are named after the ancient Greek God Aeolus and they are well known as the seven pearls of the Mediterranean Sea.


hotel-liscabianca-panarea(7)The narrow little streets of Panarea, accessible on foot only, create a cozy ambience so that in no time you feel at home and make friends with locals. This is why, every time the ferry arrives in the small harbor of St. Peter, a lot of people come to greet those leaving or to welcome those arriving.

Panarea, despite being the smallest island of the archipelago, is the most popular one, particularly among young people, due to its very lively nightlife.

panarea1The island in winter has just over 300 residents, but in summer you can find all facilities, from Medical  first aid,  ATM, shops, bars, restaurants and a nightclub that is among the most famous in the Mediterranean Sea.


cala-junco-panareaThe island has a few beaches that can be reached on foot, including one of the few sandy beaches in all the Aeolian Islands, but there are lots more beaches on the several small islet all around which are only reachable by boat.



To enjoy the Aeolian Islands at best you can either rent a bareboat yacht in Sicily or Calabria or charter one of the many crewed gulets, yachts and catamarans cruising in this charming spot of the Mediterranean Sea.

Yacht charter in San Blas: the best Caribbean sea … by boat

5 votes

image11851One of the most charming and virgin places in the Caribbean sea, San Blas in Panama – Guna Yala – in Guna language.

Since we discovered it, we try to attract travelers interested in one of the most incredible and unknowns places in the Caribbean sea and, maybe, in the world.


A place made to sail, to dive, to fish and to relax in transparent and crystalline waters full of coralline barriers.

A constant temperature year round (30º C), the perfect islands, an Indian community still with their own culture, costumes and style of life, immutable in the last centuries.


The islands of the San Blas Archipelago are strung out along the Caribbean coast of Panama from the Golfo de San Blas nearly all the way to the Colombian border. San Blas is a series of 365 islands of which only few are habited by the Guna Indians. Although only a 20-minute plane ride away from Panama City, a trip to the San Blas islands will transport you centuries into the past. The Guna Indians, who run all the islands as an autonomous province with minimal interference from the national government, have maintained their own economic system, language, customs and culture, with distinctive dress, legends, music and dance and thus have avoided traditional tourism development.

image3271The economy of the islands is based on coconut sales, fishing and tourism, and they offer travellers good snorkelling and swimming. Facilities are few and simple, as is the food. The area is surrounded by reefs, some of the oldest in the world, and offer wonderful snorkelling opportunities.


image3211San Blas is famous for one of its arts and crafts, the mola. Guna women make rainbow colored fabrics, emblazoned with fish, birds, jungle animals and geometric designs. The men still fish from canoes as they did before Columbus came. They still run up to the corner coconut palm trees for something fresh and cool to drink each morning, just as they have for untold centuries.

San Blas islands have been selected as “one of the two best sailing destinations in the world” by several of the most important nautical magazines. San Blas offers pristine nature, without any cruise ships or touristic resorts.

How to get to San Blas Islands

By Airplane:  AIR PANAMA  has daily flights from Albrook Airport n Panama City, to San Blas: El Porvenir  (30 min. Fly).

By Car: The ride takes two-and-a-half hours by 4×4 truck from Panama City to Cartí. Daily rides available.

Let us know if you need more information about  transfers from and to San Blas

Better a boat rental in “Early-booking” or in “Last-moment” ?

3 votes

Gulet_in_GreeceIs true that there is sometimes better discount in “last-moment”, but this did not worked at all last year because the European flights to Greece become so expensive in the last moment!
Example : no possible to find a flight for less than 1000 Euro, and now is around 200 or less.


So much better to use the actual “Early-booking” discount combined with flights at their lower price!

December is the last month to apply “Early-booking” discount for yacht charter.

That’s why is now the time to book a private gulet charter in the Greek islands

Lagoon 570 | Dragoon One

*by Dragoon One staff

Dragoon One is a Lagoon catamaran with a length overall of 17 meters and a width of 9 meters.lagoon570

It’s possible to rent Dragoon One with a crew consisting of his captain for a perfect navigation and the hostess taking care of the internal management and for the kitchen or Bare Boat with only a sailor on board (included in price) for navigational support.

A holiday on Dragoon One ensures high comfort and a high level of service.

The port of departure of Dragoon One for 2014 season is the Greek port of Messolonghi, 40 km away from the port of Patras for those who come by boat from Bari / Brindisi and 70 km from Patras Araxos airport served by Ryanair. The yacht’s staff will take care of transportation to and from the port of arrival . The navigation area is mainly the Ionian Greece but the strategic location allows easy access to the Aegean Sea through the Strait of Corinth. Therefore, the possible routes are as follows:charter_grecia

  • Ionian Islands : Zakynthos, Lefkada, Kefalonia
  • Peloponnese and Kythira Islands , Alonissos and Crete
  • archipelago of Sporades : Alonissos , Skiathos , Skopelos, Skyros
  • Cycladic Archipelago

The route will be arranged with Dragoon One’s guests  according to their preferences and available time.

Itinerary 1: Peloponnesse – Kythira – Elafonissos


Peloponnese Itinerary includes the departure from the port of Messolongi, stop at the island of Zakynthos which is only 30 nm away. the island offers secluded coves with clear water combined to the bright colors of nature and typical local villages. Overnight sail to the port of Pylos (55 mg) a nice caracteristic greek fishing harbor, where you can enjoy fresh fish and tzatziki. Then, cross towards to the islands of Alonissos and Kythira (70 nm), with their beautiful bays and beaches.

Itinerary 2: Aegean Islands


The itinerary in the Aegean Sea is one of the most charming and typical in Greece. It touches some of the most renouned islands but it is also the most challenging, only suitable to passengers who like to sail in strong wind, because of the constant presence of the  “Meltemi” that sweeps the Aegean Sea in the summer months. You can get to the Aegean Sea either through the Strait of Corinth (but there’s a fee to pay) or by circumnavigating the Peloponnese. The itinerary allows you to touch islands such as Milos, Paros, Ios, Mykonos, etc. ..

Itinerary 3: Sporades – Alonissos, Skiathos, Skopelos, Skyros


If you are prepared to sail long distances and your charter lasts at least 2 weeks , this itinerary (400 nm) will take you to the fascinating Sporades islands, the most genuine and typical of Greece. These islands are full of hidden coves and fishing harbors, with a very lively night life. There are numerous bars, parties and cocktails on the beach at sunset. Must pass through the Strait of Corinth!

Itinerary 4: Ionian Island Corfù, Cefalonia, Zante, Lefkada, Itaca, Citera


Quiet itinerary that leaves more time for stops and does not require many sailing hours per day. The Ionian islands are all close together and distances never exceeded the 40 nm. There are many bays with crystal clear waters and many marinas where to moor and enjoy a fish dinner!

Itinerary 5: Dodecannese


This route sails long distances but it is of great satisfaction. It is not recommended during the months of July and August though, due to the Meltemi, making it difficult to sail the way back. The distances are long and require at least 24 h running of navigation. You’ll be able to touch also the beautiful coast of Turkey, with the characteristic harbors of Bodrum and Marmaris.
