Četverotaktni motor s unutarnjim izgaranjem, brodske izvedbe, indirektno hlađen (morska voda/slatka voda)
The Lošinj lugger "Dražica" was built before 1948 in an unknown shipyard, and has retained the authentic appearance and dimensions of this type of ship. As a rarity, i.e. one of the last preserved ships of this type (wooden sailing ship, Lošinj lugger), with a high degree of preservation of the original construction, and since she can be put into operation, the "Dražica" in a quality way preserves the memory of small sailing ships in the Croatian Adriatic.

The wooden motor boat "Dražica" (after the renovation renamed "Nerezinac") is a valuable example of traditional shipbuilding and as such was entered in 2010 on the list of protected cultural property of the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia. The sailing ship was renovated as part of the Mala Barka 2 project, and in 2019 she became the Interpretation Centre for the Maritime Heritage of the Island of Lošinj. The ship also participates in tourist events which incude regattas of traditional vessels. The year of construction of the ship and the shipyard are unknown. The ship came to our region after the Second World War under the name Megara (Italian tugboat that belonged to Yugoslavia as war booty) where she worked as a tugboat in Kraljevica. It was handed over to the Dražica fishing cooperative in Kraljevica (then named Dražica) in 1946. In 1950, she became the property of two families from Šmrika, Slavko Turina and Fran Čandrlić, who turned her into a sand dredger, keeping her name Dražica, according to the Kraljevica cove, where it was mostly kept. From 1962 she became the full property of the Turina family. In 2000, she changed her purpose into a tourist/excursion ship. The ship was bought by Kresencijo Lekić from Nerezine in 2004, and in 2007 she became the property of Loger doo also from Nerezine. Eventually, in 2019, it became an interpretation centre.
