Skippered Yacht Charter

If you don't own a valid boat license and a VHF station certificate, then this is the most hassle-free vacation with completely flexible itinerary and in fact the best option for a relaxing sailing trip. This option is still considered the most affordable for most groups.

It is highly important that you first choose a reliable yacht company will provide a suitable yacht and a skipper for a sailing journey. No one knows the situation at sea and the customs of the area you are visiting better than a local skipper.

Skippered charters in Croatia - the most relaxed and genuine sailing experience

Every destination has a different character. When it comes to exploring distant foreign countries, I bet, that every sailor wants to experience the true heartbeat of the places he wishes to visit.

It is just the way WE sailors are - "Epicure" adventurers, with almost childish enthusiasm of discovering something new and above all authentic. Whether it is the landscapes, the intact nature, vibrant secluded villages or tranquil bays, the whole sailing experience needs to be special and as genuine as possible. 

My recommendation is to hire a local Croatian skipper, and first-hand discover the secluded treasures of remarkable Croatian coast. Whether you want to sail more or relax more, he knows best sailing areas, nice bays and is fully aware of local weather conditions. If you prefer to have a nice quiet evening in a lonely cove, or to explore the famous Dalmatian cuisine and discover local restaurants, he will recommend top ones. When you desire to taste the nightlife, there are famous island cities like Hvar, Vodice, Rab, Korcula or Dubrovnik where you can simply join the party and blend in. 

Most of the local skippers are not only reliable, very social and fun to be with, but also a treasury of useful tips, local legends and sailing stories they are eager to share.
