sunburst sailing

Lyn & John are interested in the finer things in life; delivering chilled days on the water to guests, with great food & wine and good company.



We’re a Scottish couple who fell in love with the Adriatic in 2005. 

We now want to offer our guests a fine dining experience and a relaxed day at sea on board our 42 ft yacht, Nera. 


If relaxing while sailing through the azure water of the Adriatic to a quiet bay for some swimming, while a sumptuous lunch is prepared by your experienced skipper/chef, is your idea of heaven, then we look forward to welcoming you on board.Nera, our elegant sailing yacht, is based in Split, where you will board your yacht for the day. 


At Sunburst Sailing we offer all the elements to create a special day for up to six guests. An exclusive romantic day for two can be arranged, or why not charter Nera exclusively for you and your friends. You only need to bring your sunscreen and shades, we’ll take care of the rest.We look forward to hearing from you.

Sunburst Day Sail

Your day onboard Nera begins at 10.00 with a welcome briefing, introducing your hosts, the yacht, and outlining some safety aspects.
Our sailing route will be dependent upon wind direction and weather conditions but will allow you to enjoy the scenery and will include visits to beautiful bays, which are often difficult to reach by road. Once at anchor, you will be able to swim and snorkel in the crystal clear waters and then enjoy complimentary drinks. Our guests are more than welcome to join in sailing the yacht or just sit back, relax and enjoy the experience.

Later, we will anchor and serve a delicious lunch in the cockpit, which will be freshly prepared by your host, John, who has 20 years cheffing experience in his native Scotland. Lunch will be accompanied by premium local and international wines, beers and soft drinks of your choice.

The rest of the day is up to you; more sailing, more swimming, more relaxing, or a snooze on our comfortable deck cushions. Nera has a hot and cold water shower on the swimming platform as well as another down below (with shampoo and conditioner) if you wish to freshen up. We will return to harbour, serving Sunburst Sailing cocktails, concluding your day on the beautiful Adriatic at 17.00.
