A Luxury Yacht, Two Cruise Ships and a Ferry Sail In for Repair

Four vessels - a yacht named 'joy Me, two cruise ships named Kapetan Bota and La Perla and Jadrolinija's ferry named Hrvat - have sailed in for their annual renovation. The 'joy Me yacht and the La Perla cruise ship have been placed in the big dock 15, the Kapetan Bota cruise ship has been placed in the small Dock 4, while the Hrvat ferry has been moored to the outfitting quay.

Works on the Hrvat ferry have begun, and include fitting and pipe works on the deck, the main and auxiliary engines, the propulsions, the air-conditioning unit, the life rafts and the marine evacuation system, as well electrical works on deck and on the accommodation deck.
The Hrvat ferry is of a newer construction, with up-to-date equipment. It can transport 1200 passengers, 138 passenger vehicles or 12 trailers with a lifting capacity of 40 t each at once.  On board the ship there is an air-conditioned lounge for 800 passengers. The hydraulic ramp enables the fast loading and unloading of vehicles, and the escalator enables a fast circulation of passengers.
The ship's length overall is 87.60 m, its width is 17.50 m and its draught is 2.40 m. It is powered by 4 Caterpillar main engines of 537 kW which can reach the speed of up to 13 knots, and two auxiliary engines of 300 kW are also in operation.
After the contracted works are performed, the Kapetan Bota cruise ship will sail out with a polished propeller and a cleaned and painted underwater part of the hull, while La Perla will also have its propeller shaft renovated.
In its 13 luxuriously decorated cabins, La Perla can accommodate 26 guests, at whose disposal are 9 crew members. It is 39.7 m long, 7.6 m wide and has a draught of 3.4 m. During cruises, it can reach the speed of up to 11 knots, while during free manoeuvring, it can reach the speed of up to 13 knots.  During the summer season, it takes its guests on a cruise around the Adriatic coast.
The Kapetan Bota is a ship of newer construction, built from steel and owned by the Rakuljić family from Krilo. It is intended for nautical tourism and during the summer, it takes its guests around the Adriatic coast. Its length overall is 36.20m, its width is 8 m and its draught is 1.95 m.
Works on the 'joy Me yacht will include the cleaning of the underwater suctions along with the disassembly and assembly of the grids, the measuring of the clearance of the propeller shaft and rudder, checking the status of secondary batteries, servicing the underwater valves and polishing the propellers, as well as underwater and above-water washing of the ship and applying intermediate coating and antifouling paint.
The 'joyMe yacht sails under the Croatian flag. It was built in 2012 in the Kraljevica Shipyard, it is 49.9 m long, 9 m wide and has a draught of 2.55 m. Its luxuriously decorated interior with six cabins can accommodate 12 passengers.
