    Catamaran MALA is a Lagoon 570 based in Split, Croatia. This sailing catamaran was taken over by the new owners, who are also the current crew, and fully refitted to a very high standard in 2018/19.

    We have given catamaran MALA the award for excellence following the great success of every charter over the past couple of years.

    We consider catamaran MALA to be one of the best crewed yachts on the Adriatic. In so many ways, they offer a perfect set up:

    - The crew, Zoki and Sanja (they also own the boat) are outstanding. They absolutely love what they do and they do it so well. They have poured so much love into refitting and preparing the boat to a very high standard. Sanja is a passionate chef, eco-and health-oriented. They are attentive, they are great wine connoisseurs and they know the area extremely well.
    - Catamaran Mala offers three en suite cabins (really good size master cabin, slightly smaller VIP double cabin and a double cabin.)
    - Great attention to detail.
    - Good choice of water toys on board.
    - The floating island has been so popular with everyone, particularly as it turns into an outdoor cinema screen in the evenings.

    Catamaran MALA can accommodate up to six guests in three en suite cabins:
    - Master cabin
    - VIP cabin
    - Double cabin

    Dear Sanja & Zoki,
    Thank you for your gracious, splendid hospitality on this incredible adventure!

    Every detail was perfect... The intimate atmosphere and attention to detail was really amazing. Your passion for "feed us" was evident in the "five star plus" cuisine you prepared in every meal. The tastes were a simphony of ingredients combined with hard work and love with outstanding flavours of your beloved culture.
    We appreciated you including us into the details of the itinerary at every step and you were able to custom tailor everything for everyone's satisfaction-were the beautiful Mala and both you and Zoki's teamwork to create and adventure cruise of luxury for a lifetime.
    Many thank for everything!

    Dear Zoki and Sanja,
    Thank you for the most incredible trip through the islands of Croatia as this was my 50th birthday trip (2 years late, due to Covid). We had great anticipation about the week.
    The entire experience far exceeded our expectations in every way. The coastline, towns and history of the area is so rich we could spend a summer here and just scratch the surface.

    Your hospitality and professionalism is of the highest caliber. We could not have asked for more. Thank you, Thank you!
    The Elmann family.

    P.s. Come see us in Hawaii.

    Thank you so much!

    We finally made it to Italy and Croatia after two years of covid delays. Our week aboard Catamaran Mala was the highlight! Sanja and Zoki are wonderful hosts, whose enthusiasm for their beautiful country was a joy to experience.
    Sanja and Zoki are very skilled professional sailors who have thorough local knowledge of the water, the weather and the many islands of Croatia. We always felt safe aboard their beautiful boat.
    Every stop on our voyage from Split to Dubrovnik was interesting, fun and delicious thanks to the excellent guides Sanja and Zoki arranged, and thanks to their recommendations for activities and restaurants.
    Sanja is a galley magician! Every meal aboard Mala was fantastic! She expertly prepared a wide variety of fresh, delicious dishes, and presented the meals beautifully. We looked forward to see what the magic was for each meal, and we were never disappointed.
    We would highly recommend Catamaran Mala. You will see Croatia from a unique perspective unlike any other cruise.

    We had a fantastic week on the Catamaran Mala. I can’t recommend it highly enough. Zoki and Sanja were incredible hosts. The boat is spacious, comfortable, super clean and absolutely delightful. Zoki is a master captain. He knew just where to go and maneuvered us into spectacular private coves with gorgeous water and amazing views. Sanja’s cooking and presentation were fantastic! She addressed our needs and wants and always prepared delicious meals. Their dining recommendations on land where perfect. It was one of the most memorable and relaxing trips we have ever taken. Croatia is a beautiful country. We will be back. If you are thinking of booking on the Mala, do not hesitate. It was a fantastic experience.

We felt completely relaxed , even during some very stormy weather due to Captain Zoki’s experience at the helm and knowledge of the coast . Sanja’s cooking is amazing I’ve got a lot to live up to now we are home ! Our swim stops and the islands we visited were perfect and it was great to have recommendations for restaurants, night life for our teens and sightseeing from such a knowledgeable source .

    This enthusiastic duo are the heart and soul of this boat. They know how to listen! They know how to make it happen!
