GALEB SAILING BOAT

 

"Galeb" (Sea-gull) sailing boat


Between 1934 and 1938 world-famous ballet dancers Pia and Pino Mlakar were choreographers of the Zurich Ballet

They usually spent their holidays on the Dalmatian coast or islands. To celebrate the birth of their daughter Veronika in 1936, they ordered a sporting sailing boat to be made at the ship-building co-operative. It was to be a cutter, the model which shipbuilders know as M6, and boatsmen as "one-design".


In May 1994 the Mlakars gave "Galeb" to the Sergej Masera Maritime Museum.
