Who is the Captain and Why it Matters

When it comes to gulet Dolin, you can’t just start with a technical description of the vessel. You have to understand the story behind this gulet as well as the owner, Captain Ivica Benić known as John (Ivica in English means John).

John spent his childhood in Australia, which meant he could think a bit different than the other yacht owners in Croatia.

Because of this, his native language is English (with very strong and cool Australian accent, of course) and like most Ozzies…he is very open and easy going.

Ivica Benič

He fulfilled his life-long dream

It was Ivica’s dream to own a boat for past 30 years of his life. When boats were mostly available for mass tourism in Croatia for groups of 20 to 40 people in 15 plus cabins,  Ivica wanted to own a gulet that flopped the popular consensus on its head.  A gulet for just 8 people, and with 4 cabins. This way he could really concentrate on the guests individually and pay them special attention and this is exactly what he is doing now.

When it comes to Dolin, Ivica (John) will do everything he can to:

  • Show you the most stunning bays Croatia has to offer
  • Tell you about the history, highlights, and other special things about Croatia
  • Serve you the best local dishes in  way like your mother would serve them to you
