Croatian Štilac

Postby barba » Wed Jun 19, 2013 2:24 am

Hi to all

I made the boat about two years ago. I never managed to do a little better picture, so I did not put it on the forum. I need to buy a new camera. Made of cherry and pear. Whit wooden parts I'm satisfied, but rigging will probably do it again when I get some time.

The štilac is the boat of exceptional and harmonious design providing an excellent sea keeping quility. To express the quality of this boat as well as of any other type, a local term „dobro štelan“, meaning that the boat is well designed, iz often used. It is a boat of the new era, heartily accepted by a large number of owners and shipwrights. She has been built in numerous shipyards all along the coast even since the middle of the 19th century for the purpose of transporting various goods and connecting the islands with the mainland. The boat was up to twenty meters long and could reach the displacement of about thirty tons.

From book of Luciano Keber „Traditional Boats of the Croatian Adriatic“
