We had an amazing time in Croatia. Dolce Vita was just superb – it was everything we had hoped for and more. Its an amazing boat and crew who looked after us really well. Niko reserved us tables in great restaurants on very busy islands. He took us to the most amazing bays where we swam and relaxed in crystal clear water. Marco the chef produced amazing food. Ivitsa and Anna looked after us on the boat at all times. Christiano was always willing and very capable when it came to ferrying us around and catering for all the watersports.
Although it wasn’t cheap I do think it was good value for money for the superb quality holiday we got. The extras bill on the boat was very reasonable. We took some great photos and used a drone to get some great footage.
Review of San LIMI Charter 9/16/2019
We chartered the San LiMI for a week's sail on the Dalmatian Coast in June, 2019. This was a three-generational trip, including two teenaged children. It was an excellent experience in all regards. We definitely would recommend it to anyone looking for an engaged week in Croatia.
The boat itself is more of a motor sailor than a sailboat. It has for cabins - one very large master suite, another king bedroom, a queen, and a double- bedded room. The profile of pictures of the boat as of the spring 2019 did not to it justice. It is very nicely appointed and decorated - modem and very comfortable. The boat had a full complement of water toys which we happily put to good use.
The Croatian crew was outstanding. All of them came from Split. Captain Leo Lemesic served in the Croatian Coast Guard and knows the waters like the back of his hand. He was always able to find a mooring for both daily water play and evening where we had space to ourselves without the intrusion of other boats close by. We explored the towns of the coast with him as guide and dined with some of his friends on the boat after a wine tasting.
The rest of the crew was engaged, courteous, and fun. Ivan, the chef, prepared a series of meals, all based on local ingredients that were spectacular. Jelena, who cared for us on the boat, was a joy of positive energy and care and Carlos and Andy were always available to help in whatever we were doing.

The outstanding elements of the trip were the crew and the common spaces aboard. All the crew were very good, but Captain Caroline and Cook Luca in particular were exceptional. The onboard space was of a very high standard and massive for a boat of this length.
Anguilla and St Barts were wonderful locations and Caroline found the best anchorage especially for St Bart’s New Year fireworks!
Highpoint did a great job with our charter, especially given our original charter was cancelled at short notice, and you found a wonderful replacement
Dear San LiMi Team
Thank you so much for this unforgettable vacation!
This was our first trip on a yacht. So we didn`t know what to expect.
We were all thrilled! From the first moment on we had a wonderful week.
The crew, very friendly, cautious and mindful. No wish kept open. The food, thank you Ivan!, extraordinary delicious! And last but not least the captain. We enjoyed the little trips with him. Always smiling, his eyes sparkling and happy to show his loved country Croatia. It seems he knows every hill, every stone, every citizen. He makes you feel safe and comfortable.
The yacht is just beautiful and lovingly decorated. With enough space and several spots to sit and chill. Our kids and us enjoyed the great sports equipment every day.
But wonderful equipment is one, people make the difference!

'Sasha, the trip was amazing, frankly beyond my expectations,

All together it has been a truly wonderful trip.
Sadly, our trip aboard Cassiopeia ended and I'm back at my office in Buenos Aires. I'm writing this email to let you know everything was perfect, and the organization flawless. Although we had a few rainy days, the crew went out of their way to make sure we had the best experience. And we did. Croatia is an incredible place, it surpassed our expectations.
Let me go one by one.
- The yacht and the crew: The yacht is much nicer than it shows in the pictures. The variety of water toys is excellent (above standard I think for a yacht this size). The cabins are very comfortable.
As for the crew, as I told you, they were all excellent (10/10). They were up to anything we needed and went out of their way to make this the best week for us. I would gladly charter a yacht with them again.
- What was your highlight of the trip? I would say Croatia is one of the highlights, an incredible place. The yacht and the crew also.
- How did you find the chef? The chef was very good (9/10). The variety, quality and taste where excellent. If asked for something to improve, this would be the variety at breakfast.
- Were you satisfied with our service? As for your service, it was excellent as well. I know you were constantly in contact with the captain, prior and during our charter. Everything was according to what we asked for and was perfectly coordinated. You anticipated our needs, so it was perfect. Thanks!!
- Would you recommend us and this type of charter to your family and friends? Absolutely yes, no doubt.
- Would you come back to Croatia for your next charter or would you prefer to visit another destination before going back to Croatia at some other point? We loved Croatia. However I rather visit new places every year. Next year should be either the western coast of Italy or Greece.
- And finally, was there anything that you would have done differently if you were given a chance? No, the trip succeeded our expectations.
It is time now to start thinking and planning for the yacht charter next year... ;)
Fernando and family (from Argentina) chartered MY CASSIOPEIA in September 2016 from Tivat (Montenegro) to Split (Croatia).
I’ll try to share as detailed as possible the wonderful experience we had on M/Y Latitude around Cote D’Azur.
Last year one of the best decisions I made was to choose you to take care of our yachting holiday around Croatia. On board the Barracuda Red Sea we had an incredible time. So we decided to do it again.
MY Latitude was also an excellent ship. Everything was brand new or well maintained, practical, and comfortable. The two king size bed cabins, were much more spacious. The bathrooms were not as high tech, but had more space. The decks were bigger and better laid out for hanging around, eating and sunbathing.
A lot of water toys, brand new jet skis, and latest toys, Fly Board. Excellent brand new Scot bikes, proved to be great for getting around the cities like St Tropez, Cannes, etc.
The crew was very professional, but also very kind so everybody had a great time and fun. They were always in a good mood and with a smile. Their suggestions always proved to be right. We were able to totally relax because they knew what we enjoyed the most.
This was amazing, how did they know what everyone liked?!
A soon as we anchored, everything was ready: who would like to go kayak, windsurf, fly board, wave runners, banana, etc.
It proved to be very important to be with a crew that new the area so well. The Captain always chose the best beaches, knew were to anchor according to the wind, where we could use the water toys without getting into trouble ... so we had a great time. He got us into the best places at the marinas.
The two restaurants he suggested were awesome: Club 55 was great, and Eden Rock was probably one of the best restaurants and places we have been in the world.
Safety was always their first priority. We had a 4 month and a two-year-old babies with us and the crew always made sure that everything was safe for them. Same for the three 12 year old girls. They would take them on the banana and a doughnut, but always making sure they were safe and having a great time.
The adults also had a great time. The crew took their time to teach us how to use the fly board, wakeboard, etc.
The Cabins and toilets were well taken care of by the crew. As soon as we got out of our cabins, they set them all up like no one had used them before. Sheets and towels were wonderful and brand new.
The Chef was something incredible! It was like eating in a Micheline star restaurant every day. He quickly learned what each one of us liked, and for every meal made a special plate for those who were vegetarians or those who enjoyed meet or sea food. The kids never eat so well at home. We wanted to bring him back with us!
The water in this part of the Mediterranean was much colder than in Croatia. It was windier and the climate seemed not as stable as we had it last year.
Next year we will surely choose My Latitude and her Crew again, and probably head for Ibiza or south of Italy.'
Carlos and family (from Argentina) chartered MY LATITUDE in July 2016 around the South of France.
Our whole family had an AMAZING time! Really! The country blew us away with its beautiful cities, villages, nature. The boat experience was also outstanding . The ship is beautiful, the staff so helpful and kind and the food was delicious. This week has enchanted us all and we would all definitely do it again and recommend it to anyone.
Thank you again for making it possible.
We had a wonderful week on Mustique, the boat was in great condition and the crew were truly outstanding. We had a really wonderful break and felt so relaxed on our return. Truly wonderful so many thanks to you and Sasha.
It is something that all four of us will be recommending to our friends.
Emmie and family (South Africa) chartered TROPICANA in July 2014 from Athens:
‘We had a truly special holiday in Greece and aboard the Tropicana. The crew, as you had promised, were amazing and the boat fulfilled all our needs. The crew could not be more helpful and friendly and we were truly sad to say good bye. The food that George served with every meal was delicious and we all wanted him to come home with us.
The refitting of the boat made it extremely comfortable with enough spaces for all of us to relax. The water toys were put to good use by all concerned and all the rooms were well appointed.
The land arrangements worked extremely well. We loved the tour on Milos and Chris had superb recommendations for dinners at the various ports when we stopped for the night. Although they never served food as good as George’s.
Although the weather did not play along as far as keeping to the original schedule Chris kept us informed of what the options were and made sure we were happy with his planned route.
The tour guide and transfer in Athens was also very efficient and informative and gave the children some background to the trip.
All in all I have no hesitation to recommend Tropicana and yourselves to anybody and would like to thank you all for a special holiday. We will certainly be in contact when next we plan a boat trip and I would love to show the boys Croatia.
