Introducing the Identical Twins!

Introducing the Identical Twins!

Introducing Blackbird and Kingfisher; two brand new Lagoon 42 catamarans that will glide into the water for the very first time in 2020! These twin catamarans are a game changer for large groups or families wanting to sail together on a Private Yacht Tour, accommodating 16 people between them!

So, why should you book a Private Yacht Tour on one of 'The Twins'?

Creature Comforts

A host of features onboard our brand new Lagoon 42 catamarans ensure that your experience will be nothing short of luxurious. Imagine relaxing on one of the rooftop sun loungers whilst music plays through the in-built cockpit speakers. The adventurous ones in your group are diving off the back of your catamaran, stand-up paddle boarding and snorkelling before rinsing off under the deck shower. Evenings are spent exploring quaint Croatian towns, enjoying a glass of wine in the spacious cockpit or star gazing from the trampoline netting - feel free to stop reading at this point and request a quote for next summer 😍😆.

Blackbird and Kingfisher both feature 4 ensuite cabins complete with air-conditioning and USB charging ports, allowing for plenty of privacy onboard for couples or families. The large saloon area also converts into a double bed which, on smaller catamarans, is often reserved for the skipper. There’s no sacrifice needed on these catamarans! Separate crew quarters for the skipper and host/hostess are also onboard, allowing an additional 2 people to comfortably sleep in the saloon.

Double Trouble

Like any good sibling rivalry, booking two identical catamarans comes with a healthy amount of competition!

Think ‘friendly’ regatta races from one island to the next, quadruple diving competitions off the back of each hull, or simply which cats’ crew has the best trampolining abilities! Whilst we’re on the topic of family relations, twins always look out for one another - so of course if you book Blackbird and Kingfisher together you’ll also receive a discount on your Private Yacht Tour.

Relaxed mid-week sailing

These catamarans are two of only four vessels in the Sail Croatia fleet that have the benefit of a Wednesday departure! With a plethora of advantages, mid-week departures often allow guests to nab cheaper flights in and out of Split, experience an earlier and often quicker check-in/out and avoid the battle of weekend crowds that often descend on Croatian marinas!

Wednesday departures = stress free sailing experiences!

In addition to Wednesday departures, the highly sought after Split to Dubrovnik or Dubrovnik to Split itineraries are also available on Blackbird and Kingfisher. The impressive size of these catamarans (42ft) allows one-way itineraries to be comfortably completed in a week; starting in Split or Dubrovnik and finishing in a new Dalmatian city.

Check in

Sit back and relax

A Private Yacht Tour is the easiest (and best) way to explore Croatia.

Each Private Yacht Tour comes with a professional, local Skipper who knows the islands, winds, secluded bays and freshest seafood restaurants like the back of their hand!

They’ll take your must-visit islands, budget and vacation style into consideration, before creating the perfect itinerary for you and your group.


With accommodation, a professional skipper, Airport transfers, fuel and insurance included in the price, all that is left for you to do is get yourself to Croatia and enjoy one of the best sailing destinations in the world!
