The story of the boat Fjaka
Gajeta 6.40 m – shipbuilder – Pičuljan (Rab) 1967 In the original version made with a mast and sails (mainsail + jib) for fishing and sailing.
After about 50 years, adapted for recreational fishing. By dismantling the mast and building the overhang, the standing height in the cabin and the conditions for a multi-day stay at sea were obtained. Refrigerator, chest, gas stove and sink with running water (150 L) for washing dishes and showers, provide very comfortable conditions for staying at sea for 2-3 crew members. Powered by a Yanmar 18 hp diesel engine, it develops a speed of up to 7 knots with very low consumption (approx. 2.5 L / hour). The owner and skipper of this beauty has been a professional skipper for 30 years with over 100,000 nautical miles spent at sea.
The photo gallery through the history of fishing on Fjaka, speaks more than a thousand words.
FJAKA – the sublime state of mind and body to which all mankind aspires. While in India and elsewhere fjaka is achieved through years of starvation and meditation, in Dalmatia it is simply a gift from God.
