More about the boat

Zlatopružica is a beautiful name for a fish known by the name of ‘‘SALPA‘‘. Salpa is a beautiful adriatic fish known for its grey colour with golden yellow stripes. With todays boat colours and our uniform we cherish the connection with this wise and exquisite fish.

In 1961 the diligent hands of the shipbuilders from Punat built a fishing boat Zlatopružica. The shipyard in Punat is the oldest one of its kind in Croatia where our boat is made of the finest Croatian oak.

“Zlatopružica” was built as a fishing boat for catching blue fish, for a fishing company “Istra-Banjole” from Pula, the same year when the today’s owner Ranko Bonifačić was born.

The boat comes from istrian aquatics to Mošćenička draga to its new owner Pepi Mohović who continues fishing with this boat but also transforms it into a fishing trawler.

Afterwords, in 1983, Ivo Gržančić from Punat buys this boat, fishes for 4 years and then in year 1987, together with his brother, reconstructs it into a touristic boat for daily excursions.

In 1992, Nikola Žic and Ranko Bonifačić buy this boat and change it again into fishing-touristic boat and at first they fish along the southern Adriatic. From 1994 till today, this boat operates in a combination with winter fishing and summer excursions.
