Motor Boat Transfers and Trips from Zadar

Scroll down to content

It was always problematic getting a proper motor yacht transfer from Zadar to Lošinj, Pula/Rovinj in Istria or even south to Split and the central Dalmatian Islands. So, when there was no another choice, we invested in a motor yacht that can do the job properly.


The Sessa c42 is a modern, Italian design yacht spacious enough to accommodate up to 10 but we keep the number of guests up to 6 adults or 6+2 children.


It is a rather fast boat cruising at 24 knots so we can reach Istria (Pula), from Zadar in about 3 hours and Split in about 2 hours. Kornati are within half hour although we like to do an extra cruising under the cliffs of Dugi Otok …

… and sea food lunch in Vrulje. This makes it a full day trip and it is perfect for families!


If traveling from Zadar region to Istria, we have several options for stopping en route and all are quite unique. Either Silba Island (see more on our Flickr gallery: or at lovely Ilovik Island for a sandy beach swim or just lunch.

Traveling by a motor yacht definitely beats the long drive from Istria to Dalmatia (cc 4 – 5 hours) and it enables one to see off the beaten path places like Susak or Unije.

The yacht has lots of room for just relaxing in the sun and has all the amenities of a luxury boat. There are two spacious cabins if someone prefers to take a nap bellow the deck, two (electric) toilets, two fridges for plenty of cold drinks during the trip.



The yacht is powered by two Volvo Penta engines at 310 HP each.

Most of the transfers and trips are exclusive to Secret Dalmatia guests but we also work on request:
