Contribution to understanding the shipbuilding in Betina

The villages Betina and Murter on the island of Murter were formed in the 14th and 15th century.

In the coming centuries, they expanded considerably their possessions by leasing the surrounding islands and the mainland as well as the Kornati and Žut – Sit island group. Owning a ship has become essential for every family. As far as we know, the first shipyard in Betina was founded by the shipbuilder family Filipi from Korčula in the mid-18th century, initiating the centuries-old tradition of building wooden boats. At the same time the shipbuilder family Uroda is very active in Betina along with the Filipi family. They mostly build wooden boats type gaeta, kaić,…
