    Hi Sasha – I just wanted to say how amazing our trip was on the Perla. Capt Karlo and crew were amazing and we could not be more happy with the boat, route etc. We already planning on doing a week on a gulet in Turkey with same 3 families in late June 2023….let me know when we need to start looking at that. We also def want to do more of Croatia but will save that for another time. Many thanks for organizing our best family vacay ever. All the best Good afternoon Sasha. I hope this email finds you well. It has been three weeks since we’ve arrived back home from our holiday and we continue to think about it every day. Croatia was simply amazing; the boat, the crew, the people and the culture. Thank you for all your efforts in making it a truly memorable experience. Many thanks again. Best, Shannon

    Dear Sasha, I was part of Bill’s group who cruised on thePerlathe first week of September. We had cruised on thePerla10 years ago, and specifically chose this cruise again because we loved the first cruise so much. This cruise was even better! Although our first captain and crew were great, “Capo” and his crew were amazing. Safety and our enjoyment were the crew’s top priorities. Capo knew exactly where to take us, and quickly read the level of activity and interests we were seeking. The chef.. Bosko, produced incredible meals… which I am still not sure how he did in the small confines of his kitchen, but he made sure the menu was varied and healthy, with many local fresh ingredients..Tanya was hard working and friendly, and Marin was a great asset, providing that glimmer of youth and ambition we all like to see.. ThePerla, itself, is beautiful and well maintained . I normally do not provide much feedback on my travel experiences, but felt I needed to in this instance so you can relate to the owner how much we were impressed by the boat and the crew. Thank you for helping to put this all together for us.. Sincerely,
    August ’19

    We recently completed a wonderful trip on the Perla from Dubrovnik to Split. This is the second time the 12 of us were on the Perla, the first time we departed and returned to Split. This trip was mostly a new set of islands for us and when we returned to an Island, we went to different port than 10 years ago. We had a wonderful time and we asked captain Capo to take us to small ports rather than the busy big port cities and spend some time at several good bays for swimming. Captain was very resourceful in finding wonderful spots for the seven days of the cruise. Sasha at Highpoint yachting did a wonderful job communicating what our needs were and Captain Capo was very professional and in his command of our trip. We told him what we wanted generally and he returned every morning with a list of options four ports and routes we chose for the day. The ship and our cabins were cleaned daily and the food was excellent. I highly recommend Sasha and High Point yachting and the Perla and Captain Capo and his crew for a relaxing beautiful tour of the Croatian Islands.

    ‘Hi Sasha Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your team for helping make our holiday to Croatia such a wonderful experience. Your guidance and assistance throughout were spot on. It was a really fantastic week for us all and the crew were excellent at all times as was the food. All tastes were catered for and it was great not to have to lift a finger all week – back to reality now!!! I can honestly say it was a perfect holiday for everyone in our party and one we will all remember for many years to come. Thanks again for all you have done. Jackie’ ‘Hi Sasha, I just wanted to reiterate everything Jackie has said. It really was a fantastic week away, everything went like clockwork and the crew could not have been more accommodating so hopefully you can find a way to pass that on to their company. Thank YOU too for all the arrangements and support. Best Martin’

    Hello Eva Yes the whole family enjoyed a wonderful week on board the Perla. The crew were very attentive and Captain Zoran was always available for advice and guided us to some perfect bays for swimming and some sightseeing. The food was well presented surprising especially as the galley was so small and hot. Bozo the cook was excellent. The accommodation was spacious for the week on board. We fully understood the situation regarding the supply of air conditioning and everybody coped very well with the heat at night. We will certainly recommend the Perla and Adriatic holidays to our friends. If the opportunity arises in the future we would love to re book the Perla and her crew. Best wishes,

    Born in Split, grew up in Kaštele, connected to a sea from a youngest age. By his own words he's "born on the sea, working at the sea, cursing the sea and will probably die under the sea".

    Before, for years and years he worked on a rough-job fishing boats as a seaman and net picker, which hardened him, made him tough and earned him a legitimate title 'old sea wolf'.

    Things took a turn when, from tiring hauling of fishing nets, his curious spirit for socializing and talking with guests - hopped on an opportunity to try himself out in the field of nautical tourism. Consequently, he stated: "I prefer to be with people and for the people, rather than with fishes and darn nets."

    Until now, he has been engaged in charter boat tourism for past 10 years, among which we would highlight the last 7 years of hardworking experience as a seasoned skipper, feeding on a so-called "sailor's bread with seven crusts".

    He starts his days with the strongest black coffees and ends his days with meticulous analysis of charts, winds and overall weather reports from different sources, always trying to find the calmest and most exotic bays for the pleasure of the guests and a safety of the ship.

    With his role-model leadership style that fosters trust and efficiency among team, high pedagogical skills of a proper teacher who sees the best in people, clockwork organization, surgical precision in ship docking, and attention to every detail - it is undeniable that relaxed, welcoming and hospitable atmosphere will be guaranteed on each and every single voyage with Perla gulet.

    In a free time, when this captain is disembarked and not driving ship - he likes to run, swim, ride SUP. And most of all, he likes to read crime novels which keep his mind sharp and alert.

    Chef Aleksandar comes from Tetovo, a town in North Macedonia. In addition to upbringing, personal tendencies and goals, the roots of locality itself directed him to study to become a chef - because of the native culture that combines unique local vetch and rich meat.

    This Alexander of Macedonia may not be "The Great" because of his conquests (like the famous namesake king), but he is certainly "great" due to his immeasurable versatility and resourcefulness in every kitchen.

    Following the footsteps of his own profession - he took a leap of faith when he decided to become a "kogo" (ship chef) on gulet Perla during summer season 2023. He expanded and improved his knowledge of the Croatian language.

    Eager for fresh experiences and changes, he adapted, improved and finally found himself in the role of chef of Mediterranean cuisine, but still with a few aces up his sleeve in terms of roasted meat and fried dishes from the pan. This summer he introduced a fair pinch of the Adriatic seasoning into his cooking, combining authentic ingredients, foods and flavours that can be found in coastal region (for an example salt, fish, prawns, seashells, etc.) with side dishes from the mainland (rice, beans, potatoes).

    Upon his arrival on Perla, he wanted to challenge himself in different and unknown situations and expand his knowledge and skills, both culinary and seafaring (such as with ropes, anchoring, driving a dingy, etc.). Also, he singlehandedly enriched interpersonal relations within the crew - with his delightful character and witty appropriate humour.

    Deckhand: MARKO MIKUŠ
    Marko hails from the beautiful coastal town of Šibenik, located in the heart of Dalmatia, behind the unique St. Anton's channel.

    Marko is a carpenter who struggled to find permanent job. His raw talent and expertise hardwired to ship carpentry was discovered by the owner Dragan, saw his potential and above all appreciates hard work, effort, problem-solving and quality of performance.

    He has been working for on board for past 7 years, ever since Dragan gave him a chance and took him under his wing as a deckhand on Perla gulet during summer seasons (where he's regularly boarded as a crew member 3rd year in a row) and as a carpenter throughout rest of the year. From raw talent he soon developed polished and refined working methods and manners - needed for this positions.

    In his free time he enjoys hobbies. He likes music, rock, dancing, ships, sailing, and above all "meeting exciting and dear people". Motorcycle races and dancing training gave him the coordination and fine balance of movement for even the most challenging naval manoeuvres. Alongside with that, he is the vice president of the local motorcycle club.

    Deckhand: KARLO GARMA
    Born in Šibenik in 1990.

    Karlo finished administrative high school and mastered political science in the University of Zagreb.

    He previously worked 5 years with people with disabilities and children with special needs as an assistant and a head of NGO for inclusion.

    Later on, he couldn't find a job in his field of expertise so he took a path of becoming an auxiliary sailor on board Perla.

    This is his second summer season onboard as a deckhand. Karlo grabs every opportunity in an attempt to improve his sailor and deck steward skills.

    In his free time he enjoys hiking, writing, composing, painting, guitar playing, snorkelling, board games, etc. Likes outdoors, appreciates rare quality of silence and responsibility.
