Dear Sanja & Zoki,
Thank you for your gracious, splendid hospitality on this incredible adventure!

Every detail was perfect... The intimate atmosphere and attention to detail was really amazing. Your passion for ´feed us´ was evident in the ´five star plus´ cuisine you prepared in every meal. The tastes were a simphony of ingredients combined with hard work and love with outstanding flavours of your beloved culture.
We appreciated you including us into the details of the itinerary at every step and you were able to custom tailor everything for everyone´s satisfaction-were the beautiful Mala and both you and Zoki´s teamwork to create and adventure cruise of luxury for a lifetime.

Dear Zoki and Sanja,
Thank you for the most incredible trip through the islands of Croatia as this was my 50th birthday trip(2 years late, due to Covid) . We had great anticipation about the week.
The entire experience far exceeded our expectations in every way. The coastline, towns and history of the area is so rich we could spend a summer here and just scratch the surface.

Your hospitality and professionalism is of the highest caliber. We could not have asked for more. Thank you, Thank you!
The Elmann family.
P.s. Come see us in Hawaii.


Thank you so much!

May -2022

We finally made it to Italy and Croatia after two years of covid delays. Our week aboard Catamaran Mala was the highlight! Sanja and Zoki are wonderful hosts, whose enthusiasm for their beautiful country was a joy to experience.
Sanja and Zoki are very skilled professional sailors who have thorough local knowledge of the water, the weather and the many islands of Croatia. We always felt safe aboard their beautiful boat.
Every stop on our voyage from Split to Dubrovnik was interesting, fun and delicious thanks to the excellent guides Sanja and Zoki arranged, and thanks to their recommendations for activities and restaurants.
Sanja is a galley magician! Every meal aboard Mala was fantastic! She expertly prepared a wide variety of fresh, delicious dishes, and presented the meals beautifully. We looked forward to see what the magic was for each meal, and we were never disappointed.
We would highly recommend Catamaran Mala. You will see Croatia from a unique perspective unlike any other cruise.

Catamaran MALA is the way to see Croatia hands down. Sanja & Zoki are the best! They treat you with such warmth and hospitality that you feel you’re traveling with extended family. Each stop they took us to along the Croatian coast was better than the last. Zoki is extremely knowledgeable about this route and Sanja is an unbelievable hostess and chef. Both of their generous and kind personalities compliment one another and they make this excursion a once in a lifetime experience. We as a family miss them already. They will be our friends for life and we hope to host them back in our hometown of Chicago someday. Their Catamaran MALA is a beautiful vessel which they have maintained so well and you can see their attention to detail in every aspect. We highly recommend CATAMARAN MALA, Sanja & Zoki, if you want an incredible and memorable vacation to Croatia! You will not regret your choice and have an unbelievable experience! Thank you Sanja & Zoki!

September - 2021

Our one week sail with Sanja and Zoki was spectacular and far exceeded our expectations. The boat was comfortable, Sanja’s cooking was super, their hospitality exceptional. As the boat owners they kept the boat in tip top condition and tried and managed to please us in every way. Not only do I recommend Cat Mala but I look forward to rebooking soon! It was the trip of a lifetime Croatia coast is magnificent!

August - 2021

We had an incredible week on Mala with Sanja and Zoki! I can´t recommend them strongly enough. Great accommodations, food, itinerary, sailing. Sanja´s cooking was healthy, delicious, varied, fresh and local. Zoki is a top captain, and all his recommendations for which islands and local wineries to visit were spot on. By the end of the week, we had not only enjoyed the best vacation we´ve ever had, but felt we had found two new friends after spending quality time with this fabulous crew. This trip should be at the top of everyone´s bucket list for sure

July - 2021

“We had the most amazing trip!!! It was fabulous! We are still traveling so I can write more in a week when I return home if you’d like more details but just so you know we loved every minute of it! Loved Zoki and Sanya and everyone thought it was the best family vacation ever! “

July -2021

´In Mala nothing is a coincidence or pure chance. Everything, from Zoki’s heavenly spots to Sanja’s exquisite dishes, is purposely thought, carefully designed and professionally delivered. The attention to detail never stopped to amaze us.
We, four very demanding Peruvians, were surprised of being surprised every single time by a very high standard of service and by a unique and impeccable experience.
It will be very difficult to top this holiday .
Immensely grateful to you: Sanja and Zoki´

June - 2021

We had a fantastic week on the Catamaran Mala. I can’t recommend it highly enough. Zoki and Sanja were incredible hosts. The boat is spacious, comfortable, super clean and absolutely delightful. Zoki is a master captain. He knew just where to go and manoeuvred us into spectacular private coves with gorgeous water and amazing views. Sanja’s cooking and presentation were fantastic! She addressed our needs and wants and always prepared delicious meals. Their dining recommendations on land where perfect. It was one of the most memorable and relaxing trips we have ever taken. Croatia is a beautiful country. We will be back. If you are thinking of booking on the Mala, do not hesitate. It was a fantastic experience.

August 2020

We had the a wonderful holiday aboard catamaran Mala. The yacht is stunning, beautifully presented with some gorgeous little touches. Both Zoki and Sanja are wonderful hosts. We felt completely relaxed , even during some very stormy weather due to Captain Zoki’s experience at the helm and knowledge of the coast . Sanja’s cooking is amazing I’ve got a lot to live up to now we are home ! Our swim stops and the islands we visited were perfect and it was great to have recommendations for restaurants, night life for our teens and sightseeing from such a knowledgeable source .

We will definitely be booking again for next year!

With thanks and very best wishes

Dear Zoki and Sanja,

Thank you so much for the wonderful moments you let us have. The trip was perfect, the islands and bays you made is visit were wonderful. The towns and restaurants you took us were amazing. Sanja’s cooking was way beyond our expectations, the kids loved it, she pleased them at every single moment. All the little details in the boat were beautiful. And the water toys you had for entertaining the kids were too much fun!
You really are a lovely couple and amazing hosts.
Hope we can do the trip next year and for sure we will recommend you guys to our friends.
For now have a safe trip to Split and receive our deepest gratitude from all of us!!

Thank you so much.

June 2019

We had the best family vacation in Mala! Sanja and Zoki made it really easy for us to relax. They adjusted to whatever we wanted, food was amazing and they have the best details.
They know the area perfectly, we went to incredible different places you wouldn´t find in trip advisor.
I have absolutely no complaints about this Week. It was a truly great experience.

July 2019

Deepest thanks to Sanja and Zoki for the most extra-ordinary journey through the Dalmation Islands. It was a truly perfect experience from start to finish: Beautiful Mala with her many comforts and amenities, their knowledge of the sea and all the magical islands and bays, Sanja´s flawless cooking and hospitality.... all add up to a customized, perfectly curated, dream come true excursion. Beyond all this, and perhaps most important is the perfect partnership of Sanja and Zoki... Without their warmth, generosity, professionalism and sense of humor, Mala would just be another fancy boat.
See you next year!

August 2019

June 2019

´Our experience with Zoki, Sanja, and Catamaran Mala was one of the best trips of our lives. We spent time in Croatia and Greece, and this was the highlight of our vacation. We offer our highest recommendation to anyone. Here are a few things that really stood out to us (which might not be so obvious when you´re researching and comparing options):

1. Ownership. Zoki and Sanja own Catamaran Mala, so they are as invested as can be in making sure that every detail of the experience is the best that it can be. In most situations, a Captain and Hostess are hired to work a boat. That is not the case here. Catamaran Mala is their business and their baby, and you can truly feel that they have put their full selves into making the experience as great as possible for guests.

2. Experience & Chemistry. Along with having several decades of experience on the sea and working with guests between them, Zoki and Sanja have great chemistry as Captain and Hostess (and as a couple themselves!). That chemistry creates a beautiful energy aboard Catamaran Mala, whether you´re relaxing during quiet times, asking Zoki questions about the islands and their history, or having a lively chat with Sanja, whose energy and humor will always put you in a great mood. They strike the perfect balance of giving you space, being your guides, and being your friends.

3. Space, Quality & Food. Whereas similarly sized vessels are often built to cramp as many people as possible onboard, Catamaran Mala is a very comfortable space. That might mean one or two fewer rooms, but it´s well worth it if you have the right party size. The boat is in excellent condition, all of your needs are accounted for onboard, and Sanja is an unbelievable chef. Our freshest and most memorable meals came on Catamaran Mala rather than on restaurants on land.

4. Flexibility & Customization. Zoki and Sanja have thought of everything you might want or need, including snorkels, water tubes, water skis, paddle boards, and even a full-size BBQ (to prepare whatever you´d like), electric bikes (for on-land exploration), and an outdoor movie projector (this was super unique... check out the photos on their Instagram page). They are super accommodating and flexible, and they will customize every bit of the experience to your preference.

For all of these reasons and more, we offer Zoki, Sanja and Catamaran Mala our highest possible endorsement. It was an amazing experience and we hope to join them again one day!´
