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.

2022 Sea-Doo SwitchSea-Doo’s all-new Switch marries the performance of a personal watercraft with the versatility of a pontoon boat to create what might just be the perfect entry-level watercraft for young families.

If there’s one thing that’s been a constant throughout BRP’s colourful history, it’s a penchant for stepping outside the box and coming up with what turn out to be ground-breaking innovations. The company that was created around the invention of the snowmobile – and furthered by the invention of the jet-propelled personal watercraft – has never been afraid to adopt revolutionary approaches to what it sees as new opportunities.

I recall, as I look blankly at it, that my plan was to attach a brand new anode that I got from the previous owner many years ago, but when I removed it from its packaging, it was clear it wasn’t the correct match for my drive. Perhaps that’s why he hadn’t installed it. And why I went no further.
