Are you looking for the kind of holiday where you get the best of both worlds? Is it time to relax, have boating adventures and land-based fun? Well, that’s precisely what Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast has to offer, so much so that this Guardian editor wished time would stand still.

Is this the Solution to Venice’s Motorboat Dilemma?

Venice has been faced with a dilemma for some time because the city is completely dependent on boats moving through the canals, but, at the same time, the drag from motorboats is starting to damage the foundations of the old houses, endangering the city’s precious architecture. 

Large vessels have already been banned from the city centre, but smaller boats can still cause damage.

The Swedish electric boat manufacturer Candela believes it has a solution. It describes the C-8 model as “the iPhone moment for electric boats," confident it can revolutionise water travel.
