Ercegovič Family History – It All Began in The Late 1940’s
The family of Marijo Ercegović, owner of Rara Avis, has had a deep relationship with the sea and its boats for more than 70 years. Marijo’s grandfather, his father, and his brothers were all seamen and spent most of their lives on oceans and seas all over the world. It was only natural for Marijo to continue this tradition.
The first boat the family owned was a wooden sailing boat, the Sveti Križ (St. Cross) built in 1947 in a shipyard in Split. It was primarily used for commercial purposes and to transport people.
Sveti Križ is still owned by the family as their private yacht.
