Sailboat or catamaran prices, considering the summer months are app. 30% lower, and so are the berths and marina fees.
Moving forward to October, lower are the prices and bigger the discounts on already reduced rates. Rntal prices in September can be compared to May or June, but Spring in Croatia is another story...Feel free to get a fair deal for a yacht at reliable yacht charter Company.
A good tip for you trip: I highly recommend that you book your holidays early. My advice is at least 6 months before your departure. As I mentioned taking a sailing holiday in Croatia has become extremely popular lately. Even though, September is not the busiest season you might consider in booking your desired yacht by Spring time.
Be sure to secure your trip and don't wait for last minute discounts. You might end up without vacant vessel or even have to reschedule your holidays. There are many early bird discounts and most of the yachts are still available. It is always possible to pay with 2 instalments. Balance is 50% at the booking and 50% one month before you depart.
Wouldn't it be amazing to anchor in a completely isolated cove with no one around? Just you, your sailboat and unspoiled nature. I remember the islands Hvar and Vis, that we sailed to some 15 years ago. The villages were like ghost towns, the bays completely empty. Just a couple of local fishermen chatting in a port tavern. As the years past, the summer season extends,however, don't expect the streets to be swarming with tourists in September. Mosty bagpackers, adventurers and nautical gusets remain at the Adriatic, and suddenly everything seems more quiet and genuine.
There are no RIB's, speed boats and big cruisers at sea, the marinas and town ports are half empty. In August is sometimes hard to get a berth or even a free seat in a restaurant. Don't worry, you will certainly find them in September and you certainly won't miss out, since most of the restaurants, shops and bars are still opened until October. So if you are looking for a peaceful holiday, September is the month to take a sailing trip.
Sailing in Croatia during September is every sailor's delight. Say goodbye to the stifling heat of August and rejoice to the consistent winds you are about to encounter. Sailing experience will be more calm and peaceful without using your engine.
The weather in September can vary, the systems are rolling over Europe and cooling the hot Mediterrane air down. The chance of an isolated storm or scattered rain is more likely, however, fronts move on just as quickly as they came. Daily temperatures stay in the mid-twenties, often peaking into thirty, while the nights cool down to solid twenty. Which means that you will definitively sleep better during the nights, and enjoy in sun-soaked pleasant days.
September in Croatia is considered as the last month of summer season. So is the general weather characteristic. There is a minor chance of cold front with stronger winds and flash-storms, but it soon clears up and the temperatures should quickly rise.
Adriatic sea in spring (May, mid June) is slowly warming up, reaching its highest temperatures in August, and starting to cool down during September. Sea temperature is still over twenty and remains warm and enjoyable for swimming.
