The summer issue of Yachts Croatia Magazine is packed with dreams and excitement
Finally, summer. After an endless, rainy spring, the second half of June finally announced summer, with ubiquitous cricket song and high temperatures.
The second we dive into crystal waters in some secluded cove, the moment we feel breeze on our skin, life seems normal again. There is no feeling like the summer feeling, especially if your summer includes some kind of boat. There’s no freedom like the freedom of sailing wherever you want or just leaving the anchor on the same place underwater for several days.
Some of us seek the peace and quiet of intimate coves, some of us go to favorite restaurants, some can’t wait to join a summer party – but we all leave the coast line behind (some worries too) and enjoy the sweet, sweet summer freedom. Spice it up with some luxury, inspired by our summer issue.
In the new issue, we celebrated the 60th anniversary of the CRN shipyard, whose vessels over the years have become a symbol of prestige, luxury and elegance, while the Slovenian shipbuilder Greenline celebrates its fifteenth anniversary and is ready for its next chapter with numerous intelligent solutions.
We sailed around the island of Korčula, which represents an attractive link between Dubrovnik and Split, 110 nm away, so no matter which ancient beauty you decide to start your cruise from, you should definitely ‘touch’ this magical island this summer.
Korčula’s gastronomy rests on the simplicity and genius of Mediterranean cuisine, so after sailing around the coastal towns and bays of the island of Korčula, stay on land and enjoy the gastronomic hedonism that this island offers.
We also visited the Montenegrin Riviera, which, with its famous beach clubs, offers a fusion of culinary delights, world-class music and beautiful natural surroundings, where relaxed afternoons seamlessly turn into fun summer nights.
Yachting lovers will like the tests of the Sunseeker 100 Yacht, Pershing 6X, Prestige M8, Cranchi 78 and Tesoro T40, and there is also a section on power catamarans, which are increasingly the choice of owners and charter companies for cruising along the Croatian coast and enjoying a comfortable life on the sea.
Design house Pininfarina, responsible for some of the most legendary cars in history, has built a distinctive style of timeless beauty, which has resulted in collaboration with numerous brands from the yachting industry, such as Oceanco, Wally, Princess and Persico Marine.
This year marks 75 years of Porsche sports cars, while Tomić & Co., BMW’s general representative for Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Albania, celebrated the 30th anniversary of business and Croatian-Bavarian cooperation with an opera gala concert at the Croatian National Theater in Zagreb.
For the summer issue, we did a fashion photo session at the beautiful Brown Beach House hotel. With the sunlit coast and the azure sea in the background, the models presented the latest Calzedonia swimwear collections, which exude elegance and style.
The Lifestyle part of the magazine brings the story of Siniša Glumičić, the most famous cosmetic surgeon in Croatia, followed by an interview with the Dodić brothers, whose goldsmith’s shop produces more and more modern and innovative diamond jewelry every season, while an interview with Marko Pažanin reveals why interest in luxury real estate on the Adriatic continues to grow.
