One Bavaria 46 Crusier and one Bavaria 50 Cruiser just came to Marina Kastela directly from Germany. Our Base Manager Armano Zekan, proud of these new acquisitions, immediately used the opportunity to take a picture of them.

With these two new boats our fleet has grown to a total of 31 yachts!

We wish our guests relaxing and exciting sailing trips with our two new yachts and … a calm sea and favorable winds!  

Winter services


At the end of each season, BavAdria has the unique opportunity to use the dry docks of Marina Kastela throughout the whole winter. This is so because BavAdria belongs to the same family business as Marina Kastela.

The yachts receive full service and a thorough cleaning while on dry dock. The underwater hull and the floor on the inside are meticulously cleaned, ragged ropes are exchanged, the yachts are newly buffed on all sides. It goes without mention that all yachts undergo a complete technical service.

Our Bavaria 44 boat – Tatinja – will be the first one opening Season 2009.

Your Bavadria Team

Also worth mentioning are the results obtained by Ola in regattas in Croatia, such as the 3rd place in the annual Mrduja Regatta in 2007 and 2008 (seocnd place in its boat class). We are particularly proud of these achievements, as Marina Kastela, in which Ola is docked, is also its sponsor.

Among the crew members that took part in this year’s “Mrduja” Regatta the following people deserve a special mention:
