Book your yacht in 4 easy steps

Things to consider when chartering a yacht in Croatia: Choose your preferable date and the destination you wish to explore, decide whether you wish to sail on your own or you need a skipper, contact a reliable yachting agency. They will provide you with best options considering your interests and holiday expectations. 





1. Choosing the dates for your sailing adventure

It is highly important to first set a date for your yacht trip. Dependent on individual preferences, whether you prefer warmer and busier summer months or a shoulder season with less hustle and bustle is your personal expectation and estimated budget for your journey. There is a yacht on Adriatic to satisfy every taste and fit into every pocket. At the moment comfortable catamarans are very popular, but the also bring higher cost on rental, fuel and marina fee. So if you are not a high roller, I personally recommend to hire sailboat in Croatia.

The sailing vacation season in Croatia stretches from April till October. If you want to avoid the crowds and pleasant temperatures, best months are June and (perhaps a bit colder) September. 

But if you want to be certain an avoid the chance of a passing shower, then choose July or August when weather on Adriatic is simply glorious. 

For adventure-seekers and experienced sailors is extra challenging to take Croatia sailing holidays within off-season April, May or October when sailing conditions are every skipper's delight.

2. Select the destination you would like to explore

With 3000 miles of astonishing coastline between the heart-shaped Istria in the north to world-wide famous Dubrovnik in the far south, there is a handful of places to explore. Over 1300 islands and 8 national wildlife parks, exciting medieval Mediterranean villages, rich cultural heritage and top-notch gastronomy are the perfect reasons to rent sailboat in Croatia for your getaway. 

Choose between 4 major destinations

Internal tip: It is impossible to explore everything within a week. Your sailing vacation will be a relaxed and peerless experience if you select one destination for a 7-day sailing trip. 

3. Should I hire a Bareboat or skippered yacht?

Bareboat yacht rental is the most flexible and affordable option. The only condition is, that your party already has a skipper with the corresponding ICC boat license. The second, and maybe most genuine way of sailing vacation is skippered Croatia Yacht rental. If you don't own a valid boat license and a VHF station certificate, then this is the most hassle-free vacation, also with flexible itinerary and in fact the most relaxing way to explore numerous isolated islands.

Skippered or crewed yacht charter is when the skipper already comes as inventory on your boat. Not only he knows best sailing areas, impressive bays and top restaurants - he is also a pure treasury of useful internal tips. If you are a high roller, the you might consider to elevate the holiday experience on a higher level and rent a luxury yacht chartersailboat or catamaran

A private sailing trip in Croatia is secured when 50% deposit is paid. Balance should be covered 4 weeks before boarding. A copy of a skipper's license is also required when you hire a bareboat.
