Deni & Aleksandra

The Baghera team, can’t wait to welcome you to Croatia

Captain Deni grew up in continental Croatia – Zagreb. A restless spirit with an early passion for travel, he went to the US to study Psychology and Sociology and then worked in US, Portugal, and Bulgaria. Upon return to Croatia, he attended Skipper’s Academy and has stuck with sailing ever since – first as the flotilla skipper for 3 years, then advancing to Skippered and Crewed charter. According to his own words – the best part about being onboard the whole time is the freedom to be in various places in a small space of time. As captain, he has to adapt and calculate the guests’ wishes, wind, and weather conditions, so it is always a challenge maintaining a balance, so there is never a dull moment while on the water. Besides sailing, Deni enjoys staying active by lifting weights, calisthenics, skateboarding, surfing, bodysurfing, bodyboarding, freediving, swimming, biking and sometimes running. 

Chef Aleksandra is a kind and gentle person, always trying her best. She originally graduated from trade school, then moved into the insurance industry. At this time, she was also involved in her family business where she gained experience within the bar, making cocktails and serving delicious food. She then joined the Moorings sister company, where she worked as a flotilla hostess for 5 seasons. During this time she was responsible for booking restaurants, organizing ports, excursions, medical care, wine tasting, sightseeing, and all other duties to make sure the guests were taken care of and had a good charter. She has now progressed to a position with The Moorings and looks forward to showing guests a unique but amazing experience on the water.

*If unforeseen circumstances prevent this crew from hosting your charter, another competent crew will substitute.
