Sail Croatia completes luxury vessel upgrade

Sailing Croatia has confirmed that a series of improvements have been made to its small luxury vessel, Olimp.

The $850,000 upgrade was done at a shipyard near Split, Croatia, and took 7 months to complete. The work was completed on time and within budget.

Improvements include:

  • A transformation of the upper deck into a shaded ambient lounge that surrounds the Jacuzzi
  • An updated color palette and design in staterooms, dining room and saloon
  • A new swim platform that extends into the sea for easy access in and out of the water

Olimp was built in 2017 and can accommodate up to 38 people. It is 49m long and travels exclusively on Sail Croatia’s Elegance luxury cruises, which cater to mature travellers.

16 Elegance cruises aboard Olimp are scheduled by the end of the year. The ship sails on three routes, via Split or Dubrovnik, and offers excursions including Diocletian’s Palace in Split, Dubrovnik City Walls, and Vis Blue Grotto, as well as daily stops for swimming.

Grant Seuren, Director of Sail Croatia, said: “Olimp is a stunning vessel, and these upgrades will ensure she remains one of the most sought after small luxury vessels to sail the Adriatic. We can’t wait for guests to come aboard and experience the upgrades for themselves, from the fresh and contemporary staterooms to the stunning new upper deck that oozes relaxation.

Croatia has removed most of its remaining wellness restrictions, including no mandatory face coverings in the majority of indoor spaces, and no restrictions or curfews for hospitality venues, including restaurants, bars and discos. All Covid-19 related entry requirements for Croatia have also been removed.
