White Dust

We love the Adriatic sea, its deep blue depths and changing winds, its simple beauty and breathtaking serenity. With more than 1.200 islands Croatia is a nautical wonder attracting sailors from every corner of the world. To sail the Adriatic sea is to indulge in Croatia’s spectacular 6000km long coast– a backdrop of dramatic coastal mountains, hillside vineyards and magnificent historical towns, and then some: the highly acclaimed cuisine, exquisite olive oil, and boutique smallbatch wines.

We offer you the possibility to experience the full splendor of Croatia’s coastline and sea, that is not possible with the typical sailboat charter services. Our high-quality Performance Cruiser Salona 44, equipped with state of the art Ocean A technology and customized to meet the needs of sailors with a passion for pleasure offers space and comfort for relaxed family cruising as well as for an exciting racing experience. Our experienced skipper, familiar with the known as well as undiscovered nautical routes, will take you to concealed fine-dining spots and off-the-map pristine beaches that evade the common tourist. For a sailing experience with a definite difference, your time on White Dust can be completely tailor-made to suit your idea of a perfect holiday.

I need the Sea because it teaches me.
Pablo Neruda


Performance is the most distinctive feature of our Salona 44, especially designed featuring light yet strong construction and equipped with state of the art technology with Ocean A registry. In addition to performance, priority in design has been given to the idea of making life very comfortable on board. A spacious and elegant wi-fi equipped salon, a fully-equipped kitchen, 3+1 double-bed cabins which comfortably sleep up to 8 persons, two bathrooms, and a cozy hammock on the dock, provide a functional yet stylish space for comfortable sailing.

A sailor’s joys are as simple as a child’s.
