Luxury yacht cruise in the Adriatic
Description of Luxury yacht cruise in the Adriatic
Explore one of Europeís most spectacularly beautiful coastlines on this eight-day Adriatic cruise on board a luxury motor-cruiser holding just 34 passengers.
Thanks to your shipís small size, youíll enjoy regular stops in tiny fishing ports and voyage into hidden-away bays that larger boats arenít able to reach.
Explore the stunning ancient walled city of Dubrovnik, marvel at the dramatic, steep-sided fjord as you sail into Kotor Bay, explore the green mountains of Corfu and step off the tourist trail in beautiful, yet little visited Albania. This voyage is a real celebration of the best the Adriatic has to offer.
Crystal-clear water, the Adriaticís calling card, surrounds you every step of the way and there are plenty of opportunities for you to dive in from your boutique yacht when it anchors in sheltered bays. Youíll also enjoy spacious sun decks, and large picture windows in the yachtís elegant lounge and library.

The food and wine served on board is almost 100% locally produced, supporting many small producers, keeping food miles to a minimum and helping to maintain the traditional small scale farming and fishing that the coast and islands depend on
By using a small ship we can visit many of the more interesting smaller ports that larger vessels cannot visit. This cuts down the mileage we need to travel and thus time spent cruising hugely and provides our passengers with a lot more time ashore.
All the food on board is bought locally; fruit vegetables, plenty of fish, meat and other staples are all locally grown and produced, and much of it is bought from small retailers or even directly from the grower or fisherman.
Our visit to Butrint, and the entrance fees we pay, helps to maintain this exceptional site and the museum it contains.
Our vessel has an on board waste treatment system to avoid polluting the sea with waste. Furthermore, the smaller size of these cruise vessels and the smaller passenger numbers, ensures that any detrimental social and environmental impacts are minimised whilst allowing the passengers to visit smaller communities that donít usually benefit from this form of tourism. Most tourists to this part of the world stay (and often donít leave) some large resorts in a few restricted locations, so by enabling our passengers to visit some different areas without putting any strain on local amenities, we are spreading the financial benefits and the load of our visit.
PeopleWe encourage all our passengers to engage with the local community on a social and economic level to ensure that this tourism has a benefit to both the visitors and the hosts. For instance, a visit to the vineyard at Lumbarda on Korcula Island helps support this traditional industry, and thus the local way of life.
The shipís managers will buy as much of their produce as possible from local communities, and will also encourage our passengers to spend money in the communities that we visit. By trying some local fruit juice instead of a well known American brand of soft drink, you will support the economy, it will be better for you and who knows, you might find you enjoy it more too.
We will endeavour to maximise the benefits of tourism and to minimise or eradicate any downside, socially, environmentally & economically.
We will encourage our passengers to learn and understand as much as possible about the local traditions and way of life to enable them to appreciate the reality of life in this part of the world. The cruise manager will ask any questions about the region, and will keep all of the passengers updated, not just with the day to day itinerary, but with in depth information about the history and way of life of the local communities.
