SALONA

Salona Yachts have been built in Croatia since 2001. With several European boat of the year awards and numerous regatta victories in top events around the world, Salona has built its reputation on its passion for excellence in sailboat construction, and as such enjoys a strong market position on four continents. Salona’s production line incorporates a series of advanced technological and engineering solutions, that position Salona as one of the top manufacturers in the world. At the heart of every Salona yacht is a hallmark stainless steel frame that securely spreads the loads from the keel, shrouds and mast evenly throughout the hull, resulting in maximum stiffness and excellent upwind performance.

Salona 33

With clean and modern lines, the Salona 33 has a cockpit that is wide, spacious and free of obstacles. Comfortable for cruising and functional for racing. A teak dinette table for cruising can easily be removed for a race and then just as easily replaced. The Salona 33 is easy to sail single-handedly, with a crew or with the family. The S33’s deep rudder is designed for responsive and reliable handling across all sea conditions and points of sail. It comes standard with a tiller or the two wheels option. The S33’s powerful sailing is balanced by a T-shaped keel that maximizes ballast leverage for remarkable stability. It also features an optional fixed or retractable carbon bowsprit for ease of sail handling and downwind enjoyment.

Salona 38

The most advanced techniques and latest technology were utilized in the construction of the Salona 38, to maximize sailing performance, above all maintaining the delicate balance between weight and stiffness. The S38 was designed by J&J Design and optimized by America’s Cup designer Jason Kerr. It was carefully crafted for use as a family cruiser, or for serious offshore and international racing. The Salona 38 boasts the largest cockpit in its class. The mainsheet track is recessed under the deck, but it also comes with the unique option of being transferred onto the coach roof to facilitate sailing with a large Bimini top.

Salona 44

The Salona 44 bumps technology, design, comfort and reliability to the next level, The hull and deck laminates on the S44 are constructed using the latest vacuum infusion construction method (IBC) combined with triaxial-oriented fiberglass fabric. Athletic elegance and innovation come together in the high-tech materials that give the boat its lighter, stronger hull. A larger-than-average refrigerator, sizable heads and considerable seating arrangements. As well as the L-shaped galley port side provides ample storage and work surfaces creating the perfect environment to keep the crew well provisioned even in open waters. The S44 can easily be sailed short-handed and is ideal for family cruising. The overall feel of the boat is light and airy, and the living quarters are roomy, comfortable and stylish, so you can enjoy whatever kind of sailing you wish.
