HISTORY OF FAMILY ERCEGOVIĆ
Family of Marijo Ercegović, owner of Rara Avis, has been more than 70 years connected with the sea and the boats. His grandfather, his father and his brothers where all seaman and spent most of their lives on the oceans and seas all over the world. So, it was natural for Marijo to continue this tradition.
First boat that was owned by their family was wooden sailing boat Sveti Križ (St. Cross) which his grandfather Ante bought in 1950. This boat was used in commercial purposes for cargo and people transportation. The boat was built in 1947 in shipyard in Split and it is still owned by the family as their private yacht.
Marijo was first member of his family who started working in nautical tourism. It was in 1996. and from then Rara Avis is 7th ship owned by him and his family. In meantime, as nautical tourism has been developing, some of them where sold and now Marijo owns four boats including Rara Avis (Ocean (build 2009.), Aurora (build 2012.) and Diamond (build 2015.). All of this boats are providing top level of service to their clients.
Nautical tourism has gone through significant changes in last 25 years. From the early beginnings when everything was new and unexplored until today when more and more boats are build each year - with the top goal of providing higher level of luxury for their upcoming clients. Rara Avis is the result of that changes and it is the crown of Marijo´s long-standing devotion to his work. In Marijo´s case his business is family business. All members of his family are included, starting from his wife and children to his sons in low. They all have their own roll in this and as the most important thing - they all share his passion for sea and tourism.

RARA AVIS 22.09.-29.09.2018. – MRS. MARIA IZABEL LAZO CORBERA
“We really like to thank you all for making this Croatian journey one to remember for life.
The boat is really well designed, the rooms have excellent size and amenities, more than what we’ve expected. All areas of the boat are spacious and allowed our family of 13 members to get together all the time, but at the same time, we could have areas for privacy.
The boat is in excellent condition and the crew was extremely respectful and joyful, with an attitude towards service that we all enjoyed.
Be sure that we will meet you in the years to come!”
