I spent 2 months in Europe this summer and this was by far my favorite experience! Marlies and Dino are the friendliest, coolest, and most fun hosts on the Adriatic. Every day was such an adventure from sun up to sun down- we swam, snorkeled, explored islands, and sailed. They took us to all the beautiful spots and hidden gems away from the crowds so our experience felt truly unique. The food and drinks were delicious and we were always kept full and happy. The boat itself was perfectly clean and slept myself + 3 friends comfortably. Dino is a master in sailing and we felt in safe hands the entire time. Marlies is also a great photographer who took so many awesome pictures for us.
We loved our time on the Lorenzo so much we didn’t want to leave! Thank you for the most amazing trip!!

We had an absolutely perfect day sailing with Marlies and Ðino around Hvar and Paklinski islands. They stepped in last minute as our original hosts unfortunately had to cancel and did a wonderful job. The boat is a great size for a couple or small group and well-equipped. The scenery, the food, the drinks, the swimming, the water, all of it was amazing. Can’t recommend them enough. Truly an amazing experience during our honeymoon. Thank you again Marlies and Ðino!

Don’t know where to start! Our time on the boat with Dino and Marlies was truly magical. We sailed for 3 nights and 4 days from Brac - Vis - Komiza - Vela Luka - Korcula. They truly went out of their way: with waking up earlier than expected because of our kids and Marlies making us coffee’s and delicious breakfasts & lunches to Dino rowing all 4 of us in the dinghy to the Green caves off Vis. Dino even bbq’ed on the boat for us one day:) All the food was delicious.
Waking up each morning on the boat was an amazing experience. We saw some truly beautiful spots and each lunch stop was just breathtaking with crystal clear water and sometimes all to ourself!
Would like to add they were both so lovely with our 5&7 year old boys. Dino let them ride in the dinghy and sailed the boat super slow pulling them along - totally safe and highlight for them!We will recommend to friends and family looking for a sailing holiday in Croatia for sure! What memories we have. Thank you so much Dino and Marlies xx

We had an amazing adventure with Marlies and Dino cruising the islands of Split. We stopped at perfectly picturesque and idyllic locations to take in the scenery, sunsets and culture. Dino created our itinerary after taking on board what we were interested in seeing and the time available to us. Marlies corresponded with us for weeks before the trip so she could understand exactly what we wanted and needed. It was for a 50th birthday so she’d organised to decorate the boat, sort a champagne breakfast, organise a special destination and booked us the ultimate evening dinner (including a surprise birthday cake). They were both so friendly and couldn’t do enough for us.
Dino found secluded, sometimes isolated coves, for us to anchor in to enjoy swimming and paddle boarding. We enjoyed sunset and early morning swims before breakfast. Marlies put together 5 star meals tailored to our individual tastes. It’s truly a fully managed trip from start to finish where everything is done for you from the sailing to the travel itinerary and destinations to the food and the drink. You don’t have to think about anything you can truly relax and take it all in. It’s important to mention how funny Dino is and what an amazing team they made. We felt very lucky to have met them and couldn’t recommend them more highly. We will definitely be cruising with them again.

Our honeymoon started with an awesome sailing trip organized by Dino and Marlies. Right from the start, they gave us a super warm welcome when they picked us up on Vis. They are all about the water and having guests onboard, you can feel they have genuine love being on the water and having guests on their boat. Dino made some great improvements to the boat to upgrade the luxury, and even when the weather wasn't super, we were still comfortable outside.
Dino knows the area like the back of his hand and took us to some beautiful bays where there wasn't a soul in sight. Waking up on the water, eating a delicious breakfast cooked up by Marlies, followed by sailing to beautiful islands before having a private bay
all to ourselves for swimming and lunch—it was pure bliss. And let's not forget those epic sunsets on deck with an Aperol or Prosecco in hand, courtesy of Marlies (she made sure we had everything we needed!).
It was an amazing honeymoon with great combination of sailing, relaxing, swimming, and sightseeing. They call it a ‘mini-cruise’ and we think that’s the perfect description for a sailing adventure with them. We would highly recommend going on a trip with Dino and Marlies!

"What an amazing experience with Trilogic Charter! This was our first sailing experience and it did not disappoint.
My husband and I spent 3 days exploring the islands near Split with lots of time for swimming, exploring small towns and sailing. Everything is accounted for on this all inclusive including fuel, meals, snacks and drinks! Marlies and Đino were kind enough to tour us around each town we stopped in and make dinner reservations at highly recommended restaurants.
Marlies has been in the hospitality industry for decades and it shows in her attention to detail and fantastic service. Đino is a expert sailor who will keep you entertained with his hilarious one liners and stories from his past.
We couldn’t recommend this charter enough!"

"We were searching for a charter boat with a skiper and found the Andadventure outlet who offered 5 days trips. We were interested about True colours of Croatia trip sailing to Krka-Scradin NP and Kornati islands.
Suggested boat belonged to Đino and Marlies who were our unforgettable hosts. The boat/Lorenzo is 35 feet long newly equipted by the handy skipper and adjusted to the max comfort of the guests.
We were interested about sailing and Dino was an excellent teacher and eager to share his vast knowledge regarding sailing in Adriatic sea.
Marlies was very attentive to all our personal needs, offering always something to drink, to eat so we alway felt taken care of and welcomed on their premises.
The food was very tasty, local, fresh and skilfully prepared from scratch right on the boat. Hats off Marlies!
We had a great time, learned many new skills, had a great opportunities to see the country from the sea and experience its hospitality.
There were plenty of opportunities for a swimming, sailing but also sightseeing of local small towns. Crew discuss with us our preferences for a day and was realistic to the max.
Friendship was very much appreciated.
Thank you! Hope to see you soon again!"

"We were lucky enough to spend two days on the Lorrenzo with Marlies and Đino. It is such a great memory for us and we can’t wait to do it again.
From the moment we met them until we stepped off the boat, we were relaxed as all of our needs were cared for. They were both excellent at suggesting locations to sail and where to anchor, while working with our schedule and being open to exactly what we wanted to do. We have never swam in such clear, blue, and secluded waters!
It is clear they love their jobs and that added to our experience. The boat was impeccable, the sailing was thrilling, and the food +
drinks were beyond delicious. We would book again for more days next time! Thank you for the great experience Đino and Marlies, we’ll never forget it!"

"My wife and I booked a 5-day charter with Trilogic this summer and EVERY aspect of the experience exceeded our expectations. We had a FANTASTIC trip with Đino and Marlies and hope to return and sail with them again! They went really out of their way to make the trip special for us from helping with dinner reservations, to teaching us about the history of the different places we visited. We would have never seen this side of Croatia on our own. The all inclusive package made the trip so easy, and the food and drink onboard was awesome. Great sailing with great people. Highly recommend!"

“We knew we had made the right choice as soon as Đino picked us up on the harbour. He and Marlies were the perfect skipper & host, showing us unknown spots around the Islands of Croatia, booking evening meals in gorgeous local restaurants and caring for our every need !!! The boat was beautiful, Marlies hospitality and cooking wonderful and Dinos cheeky character just adorable. We would not hesitate to book again and recommend you do too ….
An unforgettable few days in beautiful Croatia”
