Deni & Ana

The Canceled team, can’t wait to welcome you to the Bahamas

*Deni & Ana are available on Canceled from 1 November 2023.

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. 

Ana – After finishing maritime technologies university, my ideal career was on a yacht. I love to sail and meet new people and see new places. Combining the whole experience with food that I learned mostly on the lap of my Dalmatian parents, is really a dream come true, and I hope to put all the Croatian experience through taste on a plate for all our guests. While being The Moorings crew, I enjoy most the fact that the guests are having the best vacation they can have, and I have been part of that experience. The destination we are in – Croatia, has so much to offer, and every time being onboard offers a different perspective to every little town and bay. Mediterranean cuisine has always been a passion of mine – learning about it from my Nona, so I prefer the hearty, homemade dishes that are meant for sharing, so that is the experience I’d like our guests to enjoy as well.

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