The Makarska Riviera boasts some of the best beaches in the world and cruising the coastline with one of our speedboats is the best way to see it. Bova is a local boat-hire company that have been operating for over 5 years on the harbour in the beautiful Croatian town of Makarska. We are locals who have a thorough knowledge of the area and are happy to provide any guidance and advice in planning your day out on the sea. We offer our guests a small but carefully selected fleet of vessels that are fully equipped with navigation and safety equipment that ensure your day on the Adriatic is as safe, fun and as enjoyable as possible.
Makarska is nestled at the base of Biokovo, the second largest mountain range in Croatia, at 1762m above sea level. It has a population of over 15,000 and a stunning 2 km stretch of crystal clear pebble beach that is lined with pine trees, luxury hotels, café’s, bars and shops. All of that comes with breathtaking views of the islands of Hvar and Brač. Between the pristine crystal clear waters, islands at its doorstep and the stunning Mountain of Biokovo it is understandable why Makarska achieved its notoriety and became a favourite spot amongst tourists and locals.
