More about the boat
The boat Lenica was built as a sailing boat in 1935 in the Molfetta shipyard in Bari, Italy. It was given the beautiful name of „NUOVA REGINA MARTIRUM“, meaning the New Queen of Martyrs, and bought by Giuseppe Depicolzuane from the island of Krk.
During the World War II, it was confiscated by the occupying German army together with 4 other boats owned by the same family. Two of them sunk and the rest were nationalised in the post-war Yugoslavia. The new owners, the regional fishing company „Kvarner“ converted the sailing boat into a motorboat and renamed it into „Lenica“. The name comes from a rare type of Adriatic fish whose exploitation was later prohibited by the authorities.
Until 2003 Lenica served as a fishing boat in the hands of different local owners, when the current owner Ranko Bonifačić bought it and transformed it into a modern tourist boat that it is today.
On the occasion of the 75th birthday, in a letter addressed to the current owner Ranko Bonifačić, the son of the previous owner, Mr. Carmelo Depicolzuane, wishes that God would bless Lenica with another 75 years of sailing!
