    * You are making an enquiry about Carpe Diem 7

    CARPE DIEM 7 is an incredible gulet.

    Elegant, stylish, and a full-mahogany build, she is beautifully maintained with the utmost care. It is one of the very few gulets that sails—and with great performance, too (she was a multiple winner of the Bodrum Sailing Cup some years ago).

    This is a family run yacht based in Croatia. Frano and Lorena, who are married, are wonderful hosts. Caring by nature, they give great attention to detail—to service, food, and the general ambience. It feels like a home from home. The rest of the crew takes the same approach. There is great harmony on this gulet.

    Marino and Mateo, the young and enthusiastic chefs rotate during the season. Both draw their inspiration from their grandparents’ cooking and it is fantastic!—traditional recipes, using local ingredients, slow cooked and presented with a modern twist. This is a paradise for foodies!

    The outdoor areas are versatile and can be shaded or fully open, whatever the guests’ preferences are. The large outside dining table offers a beautiful setting for up to 8 guests. Next to it is a comfortable lounging area with cushions.

    The sunbathing/lounging bow area is a great size! Normally, the crew displays all the water toys there, right next to the steps that lead to the sea. There is a nice oval seating area there with two low cocktail tables. A perfect place to enjoy the views while sailing.

    The salon has a bar and another large dining table that is rarely used during summers. The guests area, four en suite cabins, is completely separate and can be closed off by the doors in the hallway. The master cabin is large and takes the whole width of the gulet. The other three cabins are the same size as each other, two are doubles and one is a twin cabin. All cabins are en suite.

    SAILING WITH CARPE DIEM 7, SUMMER 2020

    The Dalmatian coast is well known for its beautiful old towns. And quite rightly, too. They are amazing places, full of treasures from the Roman period to the Renaissance. You can construct fantastic sailing holidays travelling from one of these towns to the next, like the merchants of old. But you can also head just for anchorages, to relax, completely unwind and enjoy a bit of (voluntary!) isolation. We highly recommend it!

    Here is a short clip highlighting a wonderful route, mostly created with overnights on anchor:

    Hi Eva,

    We ALL enjoyed our visit to Croatia. It was a truly memorable experience. Carpe Diem is a beautiful boat and very comfortable. The crew couldn’t have been more accommodating, nothing was too much trouble. They indulged the keen sailing passengers and put up all the sails whenever the wind was compatible. The food was absolutely delicious, we have embarked on strict diet since we arrived home!

    We were very impressed by the sheer beauty of the Croatian coastline and hope to revisit the country again, but ONLY on Carpe Diem and with her very special crew.

    Thank you for organising such a special holiday,

    Patricia

    Dear Eva,

    Our tip has been fantastic... we were very sad the day that we finished.

    The gulet was perfect, and the crew were really nice people, they do the best for us, the places were they took us were very nice and sometime we were the only boat there.Be sure that we will recommend you and Carpe Diem to our friends.

    Our experience couldn't better than we had.If we have to rate the gulet, trip, crew, Croatian coast, and the food in the gulet it will be a 10.

    You and Sacha have been very nice with us.

    Best wishes,

    Elena

    We have just come back from Croatia, where we spent few days on board Gulet Carpe Diem 7! This is a really beautiful gulet, immaculately kept, stylish, with a warm and homely feeling to it. The crew is wonderful in every way, so accommodating, knowledgable, eager to create the most memorable holidays for the guests. The chef is young and enthusiastic. He produced some wonderful meals that his grandmother taught him. Those are great old Croatian recipes with a modern twist. We wrote a BLOG about it: THE GLORY OF CROATIA, SAILING, FOOD & WINE.

    Carpe Diem 7 already has some of the 2021 summer season booked. We could not recommend them higer! Early booking discount at 5% will apply.
