Yacht Charter Croatia, Meet the Crew of gulet Libra. At Otium Yachts, we pride ourselves on working with some of the best in the industry. With more than a decade’s worth of experience, we learned that the crew is the heart and soul of a yacht charter experience. The crew is the one who transforms a good holiday into an exceptional sailing holiday. Hence, we are just as passionate about presenting the crew from the yachts in our fleet as we are the yachts themselves. This week, we introduce you to the crew of gulet LIBRA.
Marko Mrcic, Captain
Marko was the moving spirit of the Mrcic family to buy beautiful gulet Libra. The family is in various types of service industry for over 30 years; they have owned restaurants, clubs, and they still own an excursion boat and luxury vacation villa. As Marko has always been devoted to the sea, he has been skippering on their family boat and in the bareboat charter. When Marko heard that Libra is for sale back in 2013, he was sure that it is the right yacht for him. Experienced sailor, in love with the Adriatic coast, completely service and client orientated, Marko is an exemplary captain/owner. Marko speaks English, has detailed knowledge of the area, dynamic and welcoming he will suggest his clients best ideas, activities, and programs.
Antonijo Misicin, Chef
Even during his high school education in Culinary school in Split, Antonio has been a part of the team in the kitchen of Hotel Radisson Blue in Split, where he continued to work for the next 2 seasons after receiving a professional chef's diploma (2015). Leaving an outstanding mark there, Antonio was invited to join Yellow Tree - a new, fine dining restaurant, located at the seaside in front of Diocletian's Palace. Summer 2017 Antonio spent as a chef on board of newly built mini cruiser. After that experience, Antonio was determined that his path is to present his professional skills to a smaller group of clients on an intimate level and personal approach. When he received an invitation to join Libra, Antonio saw an opportunity to showcase his full potential, skill, and love of culinary art. Another detail was important to Antonio when he chose Libra for his playground: Libra's galley is opened, placed in the salon which provides easy communication with guests, especially with those interested to get some of Antonio's cooking tips, secrets of the trade, recipes or simply to watch him create his magic. Antonio's inspiration comes from locally produced, seasonal, and fresh ingredients. Fluent in English.
Karlo Mudnic, Deckhand
Karlo graduated from the School of Civil Engineering and Geodesy and became a construction technician. After working in electronic equipment businesses, Karlo decided to step up and move his career further by working on charter boats to improve his maritime and hospitality skills. Being a true team player and fluent in English he quickly became a valuable part of Libra’s crew. In his free time and for over 15 years, Karlo has been volunteering at Scout club “Split” where he greatly assists in conducting team meetings, organizing a youth scout program, scout camps, logistics, and administrative work.
Matea Dzaja, Stewardess
Although this is Matea’s first summer onboard she quickly found her way around the boat and the guests. With years of experience in the hospitality industry, she is more than capable to fulfill almost any request and task given to her and her cheerful personality will make anyone’s day. She is fluent in English and Spanish. During the winter she is teaching in elementary school, loves to work with and be around the children what contributes greatly to successful charter when having families with children on board. Her hobbies are modern ballet, hiking, sports, and reading.
