During the 16th century, more than one hundred falkušas anchored in the bay of Komiža. Owing to the gajeta, the fishermen from Komiža were the only offshore fishermen in the Mediterranean until the 19th century.

Nowadays, three gajeta falkušas in Komiža are the only remaining boats of the kind in the world and only a few people know how to navigate them.

Ropes, fishnets, braces (imbroji and škota), lateens, sails… The tradition continues, and the falkuša is still cutting through the waves and devouring nautical miles.

The falkuša is a symbol of the
Croatian maritime heritage,
and the experience of
the gajeta falkuša
is an intangible cultural good.
The gajeta falkuša is a boat
of remarkable maritime capabilities,
and, due to its elegant hull
and a lateen sail, it is able
to achieve speeds up to 12 knots.
The so-called Rota Palagruzona,
a traditional regatta of falkušas,
is believed to be the regatta with
the longest tradition, not only in
the Mediterranean but also in Europe.

By participating in special
events and working together
with clients and various
institutions, the tradition
continues and the legend
of the gajeta still lives…
