The Perfect Size

Sitting at 33 foot in length, Manilo is ideal for small groups. With plenty of deck space and a large cockpit, the exterior of the yacht is perfect to enjoy the summer sun or star gaze at night. The yacht is complete with three double bed cabins that comfortably fit six people.

Experience Hassle-free Sailing

A Private Yacht Tour onboard Manilo includes an experienced, local Skipper who is responsible for ensuring your week onboard is nothing but smooth sailing. If your group is taking up all 3 cabins onboard, don’t fret, the Skipper is able to sleep in the saloon of the yacht, where the living space opens up to a double bed. Your Skipper will take care of the sailing throughout the week, however if you’re interested in a sailing lesson here and there, they’d be more than happy to show you the ropes!

Access Secluded Bays

Your experienced Skipper knows the hidden bays and secluded coves like the back of their hand! They’ll be able to recommend ideal locations to visit throughout the week that suit the style of holiday you’re hoping to achieve! With a yacht like Manilo, you’ll have access to hidden destinations that larger yachts aren’t able to visit due to their size, and often you’ll have the whole bay to yourself! Those who love a quick dip in the turquoise waters of the Adriatic will be pleased to hear that the yacht is equipped with an easily accessible swim platform. On a Private Yacht Tour, your itinerary is completely flexible, so if you fall in love with a secluded location, why not stay for another night!

Self Contained Interior

Manilo is complete with a self-contained kitchen, featuring an onboard stove and refrigerator. Cook meals onboard and dine in your onboard lounge area, the cockpit or on the deck as the sun sets! For those who wish to completely relax, your Skipper can ferry you to the shore via tender, allowing you to dine at the local restaurants lining the waterfront.

Yacht Kitchen


As Manilo is a 3-cabin yacht, it is more affordable than the larger yachts in the Sail Croatia fleet. Manilo is available on our 7 day Private Yacht Tour from just €2,949 in 2020.

Private Yacht Tours have a variety of inclusions that ensure you don’t have to worry about hidden costs, including a Skipper, return airport transfers and fuel.
