Crew Comments

Captain Edi was born in 1982 in Pula, Croatia and developed the affection with the sea since he was 2 years old as he would sail Kvarner archipelago with his dad on daily basis. As he worked his way up through skippering bare boat yachts, working as flotilla lead skipper, organizing and running skipper courses to get himself to working as a captain on crewed yachts he says that his biggest achievement in the last 13 years is keeping the same love for the job that he's so passionate about. Meeting new people while getting them to know local history tradition, unique cuisine Dalmatian way of life is his expertise. His knowledge, extensive experience, patience and calm personality create an unique atmosphere on the yacht that help you feel relaxed and make the most out of your holidays. Other hobbies Edi prefers is basketball and fitness.

Chef Aleksandra is a kind and gentle person, always trying her best. She originally graduated trade school, then moved into the insurance industry. At this time, she was also involved in her family business where she gained experience within the bar, making cocktails and serving delicious food. She then joined the Moorings sister company, where she worked as a flotilla hostess for 5 seasons. During this time she was responsible for booking restaurants, organizing ports, excursions, medical care, wine tasting, sightseeing and all other duties to make sure the guests were taken care of and had a good charter. She has now progressed to a position with The Moorings and looks forward to showing guests a unique but amazing experience on the water.
