Shipbuilder Ante Fržop built the boat for his personal needs, primarily recreational fishing. The boat Marinka played an important role in the life choice of young yachtsman Duje and Jure Fržop. It’s sailing in the lateen sail boat that provided the motivation to currently some of Croatia’s best sailors.
Today the boat is used for enjoyment and sails in lateen sail regattas. She is unbeaten in her class.
