MS Aria

Port of Rijeka - Kvarner Region



Captain Jure Tomaš and his MS Planka have been an integral part of our fleet since 1998. Since his son Marin has also been a captain for years now, Jure and Marin decided to build a new ship in the summer of 2014. The result was impressive, because in June 2016 the MS Aria, a majestic motorized sailing ship, went on its maiden voyage – the height from the waterline to the mast top is 32 m. A 675 hp engine gives the Aria a top speed of 12 knots, while the normal cruising speed is a comfortable 8 to 9 knots – after all, you should be able to enjoy the Adriatic Sea and its islands in peace. After three years, Jure has replaced his son Marin at the helm of the Aria, while Marin took care of the family's next ship newbuilding –the "MY Alpha", which joined our fleet in 2020. By the way, the name "Aria" does not come from the aria in the opera or from the Italian word for air, but stands for "weather" in Dalmatian dialect.

The MS Aria will be extensively renovated for the 2025 season and upgraded to the deluxe category. It will then only have 17 cabins for a maximum of 36 passengers.

Rijeka is the third largest city in Croatia and the largest and most important seaport of the country. Rijeka is just a few hours by car from central Europe – public transportation (bus and train) depart from several countries on a daily base. The airport is located 30 kilometres outside Rijeka on the island of Krk. The city centre is close to the harbour and offers fantastic shopping opportunities, plus a number of cultural monuments and many places of interest. There is plenty of evening entertainment along the harbour road, the “Riva”.
