It is important to first set a date for your cruising adventure. Please note that most private yacht charters in Croatia within the main sailing season run in 7-day itinerary starting and ending Saturdays. At the moment comfortable and spacious catamarans are extra popular at the Croatian coast, however, renting a multi-hull also means higher rental cost , fuel and marina fees.

Croatia yacht charter season stretches from April till October. The peak summer months July and August with dry whether periods and warm sea temperatures are ideal choice for beginners or first-time visitors. But if you wish to avoid summer crowds and if you are on a budget, sailing Croatia in September or early June is recommended.

April, May or October with more challenging sailing conditions can be a pure delight for skippers or adrenaline addicts.
