43.3m/141.11ft LOVE STORY represents the next generation of wind-powered vessels that cater to a modern clientele: Gone are the traditional dark wooden panelled interiors for the light and contemporary alternative that is as desirable for special occasions as family getaways. Additional amenities such as a sundeck Jacuzzi and a large collection of water toys bring the benefits more often associated with motor yachts to this graceful and environmentally friendly way of travel.

The main salon is an inviting open-plan area in warm honeyed tones and accents in rich navy blue. The lounge creates a cosy corner for intimate conversation or winding down with a film at the end of a marvellous day along the Dalmatian Coast, and the dining area and bar are ready to mark a special occasion in a memorable fashion.

Life outdoors is absolute bliss wherever you travel because of the abundance of sunbathing space on board and alfresco dining areas in the sunshine and shade. The sundeck also has a wonderful Jacuzzi to lie back and admire the twinkling lights of Rovinj, Pula and other popular destinations after sundown.
