Leut Gušte was built in 2013 by shipbuilder Ante Fržop. The owner of the boat, Tonko Skračić previously owned a leut Gušte, which was physically smaller than the present one. When the boat got old, he decided that he wanted a larger cargo vessel with considerable cargo carrying capacity. He agreed on the dimensions and shape of the boat with the shipbuilder, and Gušte is currently used to transport olives and timber from large family olive groves in Kurnati.
The new Gušte passed the test shortly after launching. With the boat less than one year old, Tonko Skračić and his crew set off to remote regatta Rota Palagruzona.
