The Boat




At 40 x 8.5m the Princess Diana is a 3-masted deluxe class motor yacht that was launched in 2011. This ship is the princess of the Croatian fleet, an epitome of pure elegance. 16 spacious guest cabins with air conditioning, shower cabins and WC are at your disposal. The spacious salon as well as the canopied deck, with upholstered seating, are situated on the top deck. You’re invited to play music on the piano and to relax to your heart's content. You will find sun mats and deckchairs on deck. The jacuzzi on the top deck is a highlight with its 360° panoramic view.

 

The ship is especially adapted to the needs of Electric bike cruises. An extra cargo hold in the bunt will be equipped with enough power sockets for the battery stations; a loading ramp will make the embarkation and disembarkation for the E-bikes less complicated.
