Description of Neven's sailboat
Bavaria - 46 Cruiser | 6 People
ABOUT S/Y “Marinas“ “Marinas” is solid and spacious Bavaria 46 Cruiser built in 2008. She has 4 Nautalins and 2 heads but will only be able to offer 3 double bed Nautalins where up to 6 guests can be comfortably accommodated. Forth, bunk bed Nautalin, is used by skipper. Please note that Marinas can only be chartered with skipper included but thanks to that it can also be chartered for a short stay like a day or even half a day cruise. In winter 2020/21 Marinas was under a major refit. New fridges were installed, solar panels added, new main sail, bedclothes, kitchen equipment, dingy, outboard, lots of equipment was refurbished. Considering her age and years spent in charter she now looks much better than most of her colleagues of the same age but her experience and miles left behind are, normally, visible. What you can expect is a cozy, comfortable and very safe middle age lady with well-maintained interior and fully equipped for extended cruising. Please note that Marinas does not have permanent berth in Split. Almost all of our turn-around days are carried out in marina ZENTA in Split but the exact boarding location will be confirmed week before the charter. Check in – 9 AM Check out – 6 PM CREW Skipper Luka is permanent crew member, who will make sure that you use the most out of your time while onboard. Luka is a very enthusiastic sailor with great local knowledge, engaged when needed, invisible if not. Luka has been a part of our team for more than 3 years now but he has been skippering for last 7 years. He is just about to become graduated sailing instructor. If you want to test your sailing skills, he is the person to have nearby. 😊 PAYMENT and EXPENCESS All the expenses that you can expect before and during your stay are divided in three steps; 1.

Making sure everything goes smooth and safe, quite often out of their comfort zone to ensure the best possible experience. Tip is not obligatory but if you are pleased with the service, it is appreciated and expected. ITINERARY Itinerary will be created in accordance to the weather, length of stay and your preferences. If you have destinations that you want to visit or activities you want to do, we will do our best to adjust it accordingly. It is good to have the plan and learn about the area before your arrival, it is always good to ask us for recommendations and suggestions, however do have in mind that the final route will be confirmed by the skipper, after checking the weather forecast on the day of your arrival. There are many logistical details to be taken into account so Luka will suggest safest and the most comfortable route, planning few days ahead. However, if you want to do extra activities outside of the boat, do let us know ahead of your arrival as restaurants, various tours, berth in port etc … all needs to be reserved in advance. Your stay can be active, can be passive, gourmand oriented, historical, cultural, party and night life… all this you should share with skipper at the time of your arrival or days before. WHAT TO EXPECT ONE DAY TRIP - we are staying within the triangle of Split, Brač and Šolta. You can expect to visit one of the villages on Brač or Šolta, swim stop in the middle of a day and two hour navigation both ways. TWO DAY TRIP - overnight onboard is the minimum to experience the real thing. If you have never tried it, stay on the anchor and enjoy the comfort of your floating home in the middle of beautiful nature. Two day trip can include several swim stops on various places and visit of two or three different villages, if your daily navigation is not too long. Hvar town is also comfortably reachable in two days. THREE DAY TRIP – it is a big difference between one/two day trip and everything above. Several hours of navigation are needed to clear the area of Split and find yourself in attractive destination. Good part of your first and last day will be navigation to your final destination but in this case you have one full day to use just as you want. Three- and four-days trips are our recommendation as the best discovery sailing option. Please note that the average daily price is lower the more days you choose to book.

Excellent trip over 3 days in the very capable hands of Luka. Areas suggested for swimming, mooring and eating were all very good as well as sailing between islands.
Nevan’s boat is nice for 6 people. Luka, the skipper was a nice guy to get to know. I wish there was a coffee maker onboard, but otherwise everything was fantastic. Thank you for the 4 day split island trip
Really big thanks for our skipper, Luka! Wonderful service and happy attitude. For future customers it would be good to let them know that cash payment is preferred for skipper fee & cleaning. Looking forward to perhaps sailing with you in the future!
Neven was very open and helpful from the time we approached him through clickandboat. The whole experience was amazing. Luka was out skipper for three days who had a lot of knowledge about the islands around split. He made sure that we had a great time. He helped us organize kayak trips, bike tours, restaurant reservation, and was very helpful on board. The boat was perfect for 6 people which included all the necessary amenities including paddle board, snorkeling masks, fins, and kitchen accessories for cooking. After three days we felt like it was not enough :D Will definitely come back.
We had the most amazing time on board, thank you so much :-) Our skipper Luka took us everywhere we wanted, under sail, under motor, and took good care of our family. For our kids, age 10 and 12, it was their first time on a yacht and they enjoyed it so much that they want to come back again next year!
Our family of four enjoyed a very special experience sailing for four days ! Thanks to a large degree to Luka and Nina, who took care of us and made sure we could relax and witness great sights, sailing, food and culture !
It was top!!!
We had the most incredible few days sailing around Hvar and Vis. The boat was perfect for x6 people (x3 couples). Our Skipper Luka was extremely helpful and very flexible in recommending us the best places to swim, visit and eat. Highly recommend asking for restaurants and guidance at each port/location. We will certainly be back for more. Thank you so much Neven & Luka!
Great skipper, great hostess, awesome all around experience. We went on a short charter and didn't sailed all that much (wind conditions), but Neven still showed to be a safe pair of hands. If you hire him as your skipper, all you gotta do is vibe out. The boat is quite a bit older, but Neven does a great job maintaining it, the wear&tear was hardly visible, certainly not what you'd expect from a 2008 boat. Also, Jelena's cooking is amazing, do yourself a favor and book the hostess option! Otherwise, it's a Bavaria 46, you know what to expect. Or if you are like me and you don't, then here's my advice: for 6 guests, it's ok but certainly only book it with close friends that you don't mind being very close to; but for 2 guests this size of boat was the ultimate luxury. We couldn't have asked for more. Thank you Neven!
Together with 4 friends we spent 1 week with Neven and Marinas (the boat), and it was memorable. Neven is a skilled and professional skipper with many years of experience in the sector and he knows very well the area. He was very flexible and proactive on our requests and he showed us hidden beaches and local restaurants of the islands around Split, which was priceless! At the arrival we agreed on the main places we wanted to visit/activities do to, also based on the weather conditions and then we adjusted the route accordingly during the week. He also helped us with some administrative tasks e.g. Covid test, Ports booking, booking bike tour which facilitated a lot our stay. The boat is recently renovated and in good conditions, comfortable for 5 guests like we were. We appreciated the many options of the boat that might not be found in other charters e.g. speakers, paddle board, snorkeling equipment, full kitchen equipment etc.. Overall we highly recommend Neven and Marinas! Thanks again Neven, Daniela
