A brand-new hybrid vessel now connects two of Dubrovnik's great gardens, Trsteno Arboretum and Lokrum Island's Botanical Garden. Lacroma is the first hybrid passenger ship built in a Croatian shipyard and will sail between Gruz, Trsteno, and Lokrum Island on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, allowing tourists the chance to explore the city's green oases with greater ease.
The hybrid catamaran Lacroma has a capacity of 50 passengers, is accessible to people with disabilities, and has a maximum speed of 18 knots.
Built in the Dalmont shipyard in Kraljevica as part of the "Historical Gardens of the Dubrovnik Area" project and co-financed by the European Fund for Regional Development, its construction was co-financed by the European Fund for Regional Development.
The purpose of the project is the sustainable use of natural heritage and the management of protected areas through the interpretation and presentation of protected natural heritage, with the long-term goal of contributing to sustainable socio-economic development at a local and regional level.
The procurement of the Lacroma hybrid ship and the development of this new tourist product also form part of the City of Dubrovnik's "Respect the City" strategic project as it will affect the dispersion of visitors to the destination.
