Behind the Scenes

Esperanza is crewed by a friendly and hard-working team, including its warm-hearted Captain and ship owner, Ranko. Sailing has been in Ranko's family for many years and it has always been more than a profession.

Originally from the traditional shipbuilding town of Krilo, Ranko shares his passion for sailing with his brother Gordan, who is also a renowned Captain and ship owner working with Sail Croatia. Both Captains have been with Sail Croatia since its origins, taking Sail Croatia to where it is today!

For Ranko, sailing is a way of life, and his steady hand and long-term experience ensures the ship will reach each new destination safely and on time.
