CICIBELA is a Betina gajeta of an older type, 8 meters long. It was built in the shipyard of Filip Tošulov in 1931 and ordered by Toma Gregurov form Preko on the island of Ugljan. During its service life its transported labourers, cattle and crops, and during the WWII, it transported refugees to El Shatt in secret night voyages to the Kornati islands, where a bigger boat awaited. On constant alert, the owner used to sink Cicibela every night by filling it with rocks. It was kept like that until the following night when it would again be prepared for sailing.
Cicibela ended up in the Zadar Foša, where it was almost sunk. Although it was in a bad shape, Marino Mijat from Tribunj decided to buy it and bring it to Betina.
Čedomir Burtina Ćiro was in charge of the reconstruction and renovation of Cicibela. Only one fifth of the old Cicibela remained intact. Each frame was torn down one by one. After a new one was made, it was put back onto the boat. By doing so, master Burtina managed to keep the originality of the old design.
