Gulet MALENA joined the Adriatic fleet in the summer 2013, just after she was fully refurbished in Croatia. Since then, this gulet has been well looked after by her owners, regularly maintained during winters with the addition of something new every year to refresh the look and feel of the boat.
MALENA has a great charter record and a lot of that is due to her wonderful local crew of four.
