The owners of the Selene yacht Nomades live in Noumea, New Caledonia, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, but their home berth is Marina Punat in Croatia. They regularly return to Europe to use their yacht and see family and friends. Nomades is used both for longer excursions with only the two owners onboard, as well as trips with friends from Ljubljana (Slovenia) along the Adriatic coast. The cities along this coast have a rich history, and Nomades’ owners know a great deal about the many interesting sites offered by the region.
The most recent expedition in June started with a short trip to friends in Ljubljana, including a stay in the historic Slovenian capital and its surroundings. Afterwards, the two families both boarded their Selene yachts and set course to Pag for a visit to the ancient city of Zadar. Zadar has a history dating back to antiquity, and, with its strategic position, has served as an important settlement for a variety of occupiers over the centuries.
After this fascinating stop, Nomades continued solo along the Dalmatian coast to Cavtat, the most southern point of Croatia. From there, the journey continued to Trivat and the bays of Kotor in Montenegro, where the owners resided for a week. The many mountains in the rocky surroundings make for an impressive sight, and cruising through the landscape with its curves and cliffs generated countless breathtaking moments wherever the mountains and sea came together.
The canyon of Tara, where deep green water flows from down from the glacier; the orthodox monasteries of Moraca and Ostrog, cut out from a cliff wall; the ancient miniature nineteenth-century city of Cetinje… There is so much to see and do, and always with that stunning panorama over the gorgeous bay of Kotor.
The Selene owners continue to travel many miles in style on their Nomades.
