A holiday often is defined by the experiences we make in unique and beautiful settings. But what about that indulgently lazy contentment of doing nothing that turns a holiday into a vacation? Croatia has taken their sentiment of Fjaka to heart.

Set along the coast of the Amalfi Sea, Croatia holds that undeniable coastal European beauty. Spend your days floating through pristine turquoise waters passing by sandy beaches and fairy-tale like architecture and stone castles. Floating on a 164” luxury yacht and you will certainly start to enter a state of relaxation.

Fjakaon to the next island!

Croatia is also home to over 1000 islands on the Amalfi Sea, ranging from the hugely popular to the lesser-known. Among the islands, you will find endless destinations, activities, dining experiences and beaches to rest and reset. Think of it this way – you cruise for three or four hours only to arrive at your newest destination, spend the day there and head to another island for dinner! The benefit of having so many islands is not only their beauty but the opportunity to experience a new destination every single day.

Island hopping

We believe that island hopping is truly the most exquisite way to experience Croatia and this is what differentiates a luxury cruise in Croatia from some of their counterparts in Italy or France. Not only are you getting one thousand islands for the price of one in your vacation, but Croatia is relatively inexpensive in comparison. We can’t be the only one thinking that a little money saved might help our state of Fjaka.

Cruising has become an increasingly popular way to travel the world in recent years and it’s easy to see why when you think about it. You can choose your own bubble and stay relatively secluded from others throughout the duration of your trip.

Goolets is the charter company where life is truly good. They believe in a simple two-step process and the steps are easy: live your life working hard and celebrate your successes with yachting holidays. Where can they help you? Step two.

They are not only happy to help you plan your dream Croatia vacation but can provide you with an onboard concierge who can arrange your entire trip for you as you go! From wine tastings and fine dining to diving excursions, group activities, day trips, children’s activities, and everything in-between. Every yachting trip will have different needs and Goolets will cater to all of them, making everyone from grandparents to grandchildren happy, and everyone in-between.

FjakaThe Ohana

Goolets offers an impressive selection of yachts to choose from. Somewhere between you’ll find your Croatian dreamboat somewhere between the Ohana and the Freedom Superyacht. The 160’ Ohana (pictured above) can comfortably accommodate up to 38 guests. The sun deck offers 160 m2 of space and is equipped with sun-loungers and a jacuzzi. She offers cozy indoor and outdoor areas, with a bright, spacious salon that seats 32 people on 4 separate dining tables and the Freedom One of only three such superyachts in the world, Freedom can accommodate more than 12 passengers (up to 23), with a cinema, gym, onboard pool, jacuzzi, sauna, beauty spa/massage room, and a full menu of water toys).

Whatever yacht you chose to charter in Croatia we think it’s safe to say you’ll find your Fjaka.

Viko S35

By Katherine Stone

I am lucky to have the opportunity to helm many types of boats. I am even more lucky to sail boats on champagne fall days when many boats are either being hauled for the winter, or are already under shrink-wrap.

Not only are there great winds – usually offshore, but welcome sunshine and open waters with few boats out enjoying the last days of September. Joining me for the test sail of the Viko S35 was the former publisher of Canadian Yachting, Greg Nicoll, and the Canadian Viko Yachts representative, Eric Beauregard, who had driven down from Montreal.

Four Winns H4

 

Four Winns H4By Andy Adams

The well-known Four Winns brand is now a part of the international boatbuilder Groupe Beneteau and the new H4 is a great example of how the design and engineering resources of Beneteau can up the game even for a brand like Four Winns that has a long and distinguished history.

The Cadillac Michigan-built H4 is a brand-new design this year and we think it's especially handsome. The vertical stem bow is all new and innovative. It is a design feature that was chosen to give Four Winns and the H4 a sense of modern and contemporary look while the stern remains more traditional.

West Side Story

by Jennifer M. Smith, drone photos by Alex Nikolajevich

It was the last day of August and we were in Little Current heading south. Our Lasalle winter haul out was still over a month away. The question was: where to now? Friends in Meaford often suggested we sail in for a visit. We never had because we’d always moved north-south on the east side of Georgian Bay. This year we were up for something different. This was the perfect opportunity to cruise the west side of the bay.

We made the 10 a.m. bridge out of Little Current and motor-sailed east southeast in light northerlies. We’d often sailed past Snug Harbour, a nearly land-locked anchorage on the north side of Lansdowne Channel because the chart suggested we’d never make it in there with our six-foot draft.

Supplies and Colour Matching

by Marc Robic

After 27 years of sun and traffic, the cockpit floor on Aquaholic was starting to look faded and had many small pinholes and minor surface cracks. These pinholes are mostly caused by small air pockets that lay just below the gelcoat surface. Of course, this is exacerbated by particles such as small rocks or debris under shoes, dropped winch handles, etc.

Luckily, Catalina Yachts is still very much in business and are very helpful when owners have questions or need parts. I ordered a small quantity of original formula Catalina grey and white gelcoat for my model and year.
