History of Žaba
The history is a bit longer than one would want to remember. If boat building dreamers knew how long it takes to build a boat, multiply by four, no boats would ever be built. Žaba was built by Bukvaj Multihulls sro in Prague, on the Vltava river bank, close to the historic city center. Construction started in August 2011. The boat was test launched on 4th October 2017.LEARN MORE
Bespoke Manufacturing and Mobile Boat Repair
Since we built the whole boat, and several boats before Zaba, Bukvaj Multihulls sro (ex Bukvaj sro) plans to do mobile repairs wherever your boat or project is. Or actually wherever we can sail Žaba. We can do fibeglass work, fairing / painting, system upgrades, some electrical work.LEARN MORE
Don’t stop dreaming, or dream on!!
Žaba’s route so far
Most of the work was completed (ish) in Prague in April 2018. The boat first went down the river Moldau into Elbe, then up norht to Hamburg. The mast was stepped in Gluckstadt. In the summer of 2018 we sailed in the Baltic and up to Oslo through Copenhagen. Zaba spent the first winter in lovely Emden. And in 2019 Zaba took off through Duch canals, the mast up route to Amsterdam, Brighton, Brest, La Coruna, Lisabon, Algarve and through the Med to Greece.

Bukvaj Multihulls and before that Bukvaj sro have, beside building boats, made composite parts, repaired boats and boat systems
In The Meantime
here’s how our frinds experienced the cat
The galley is good she should say. Ali sailed across the Bay of Biscay from Brest to Lisabon. What are you cooking Ali? Don’t know yet, something. It’s always delicious though.
Tor has sailed the Vltava / Elbe from Praha nearly to Hamburg. Then from Travemunde to Danish islands in 2018 and in 2019 from Emden to Brest through the Datch canals and the English / La Manche canal to Brest
Steve sailed with us from Oslo to Emden through formidable Skaggerak and the southern North Sea in late 2018. The weather was not very nice to us. Then in 2019 from Emden to La Coruna
