Luxury large sailing yachts are a newcomer to Croatia and the world, but they have become extremely popular in recent years due to the pandemic, and as a result, they are sweeping the luxury charter market like no other form of vessel.
We have a large selection of gulets, sailboats, catamarans, yachts, motorboats, and an exclusive Luxury Mini Cruiser for sailing in Croatia, as well as many more options. Despite the fact that modern charter boats resemble floating cities, sailing retains an old-fashioned and magical quality. The following are some of the most often asked questions about renting a boat in Croatia.
Is it possible to rent a boat in Croatia? - Renting a boat is easy in Croatia, which is why yacht charter is so popular. You may rent a bareboat or skippered sailing charter in Croatia from any of the marinas.
Is a boat license required in Croatia? - You must have some sailing experience and a valid sailing license to enjoy an active sailing vacation. Your sailing license must demonstrate your competency and capacity to navigate the rental boat. Another option is to lease a yacht with a skipper.
Is a boat license required to rent a boat in Croatia? - As long as you're not the one at the helm, you don't need to get a sailing and nautical navigation license. At least one person aboard the boat must have a valid license, according to Croatian law. If you don't want to hire a captain, you'll need a charter boat license.
What are the requirements for a bareboat charter? - It is a legal requirement in Croatia to have a skipper's license. The authorities have produced an official list of recognized licenses. The following is a list of qualifications recognized in Croatia that have been issued by various authorities around the world. Most charter firms will require you to have a qualification that is on the list in addition to a VHF license. Anyone from any country, particularly European countries, can have any of the qualifications on the list, and you can skipper a bareboat even if you only have the most basic license specified if you also have adequate sailing experience.
When is it permissible to depart Croatian territorial seas for chartering? - Generally speaking, most charter firms do not allow chartering outside of Croatian territorial waters. If you intend to sail outside of Croatia's territorial waters, make an inquiry with the charter company so that they can prepare the necessary documentation and licenses. However, international permits come with additional fees, and you must submit to the Croatian customs office as well as the customs office of the country you wish to visit.
What is the security deposit? - The security deposit is a sum set aside during the reservation process, either in cash or by credit card, to cover any damage to the boat while it is being chartered. It's a security deposit that ensures you'll be held responsible for any harm you do. If no damages are discovered on the yacht or vessel used, the security deposit will be repaid in full at the conclusion of the chartering excursion.
What is the cost of Marinas and harbor?- Overnight docking in a marina can be expensive compared to other places, however this is likely due to Croatia's popularity as a sailing destination. In Croatia, marina berth charges are normally based on monohull overall length, while catamaran mooring fees are typically twice as expensive as monohull mooring fees. In general, pricing for a boat of roughly 43 feet run from 50 to 70 euros per day. The majority of anchorages and harbors, on the other hand, are free.
Is it possible to reserve a spot in a marina ahead of time? - Unfortunately, there is no way to reserve a marina or a parking spot in Croatia ahead of time. If you want to berth at a certain marina and you think it could be full, get there early, preferably before midday. During the off-season, however, docking and berthing are usually not a problem.
What does the charter fee cover? - The charter fee covers the vessel's rental, bed linens, safety and navigation equipment, dock fees for the vessel's departure and return locations, insurance, and VAT (all taxes). Bath/beach towels are available for an additional price, while some charter firms include them in the charter fee. Make certain to seek advice ahead of time.
When do you check in and when do you check out? - In peak season, check-in is usually after 17 hours, so you may be through with paperwork by mid-day but the boat will most likely be ready later that afternoon. During low season, the boat may be ready early, allowing for an earlier check-in. Check out is between 8 and 9 a.m. on Friday afternoons or Saturday mornings.
Is it feasible to rent the boat for a limited time? - Normally, a boat is chartered for a week from Saturday to Saturday, and chartering a boat for a shorter amount of time is not possible, especially during peak season. However, during low seasons, this may be possible, but you should be aware that even if you receive a short-term offer, you may be compelled to pay on a weekly basis.
Do I have to pay for the Skipper's food? - Yes, their meals are not included in the charter charge, so whether you're eating on the boat or at a restaurant, you must provide them with food. This does not, however, imply that you must bring them along every time you go out to eat. You can give them money to eat in typical restaurants and sort themselves out.
Can we bring our tiny children on board, and what can we do to ensure that they are safe? - Children can be welcomed on board with little extra planning and safety precautions. The type of boat is the first consideration, and a catamaran is highly recommended because it is more suitable for children. They have a lot of space inside, which means the kids will have lots of room to play, a fly deck, and it will be easy to get in and out of the water. The next step is to inquire with the yacht agency about the possibility of adding a child safety net. Most companies will do this for free if you notify them in advance, but some may demand a fee. The same is true for life vests, please check with your boat business to ensure you aren't being overcharged.

You'll profit much from their insights due to their vast expertise and understanding of innumerable gorgeous islands and the Dalmatian coast.
• The advantages of having a captain on board
Skippers have years or decades of expertise in the charter sector, so they are familiar with most models and types of boats, ensuring the highest level of safety for you and your crew. In high season, for example, marinas may become overcrowded, and a skipper will know the best time to arrive at the marina to ensure you obtain a berth, and in the event of an emergency, they will be well-versed in how to handle the situation. They also have extensive knowledge of Croatian waters, so in addition to providing their nautical talents, a skipper may recommend gorgeous isolated Bays and anchorages off the usual route that will elude unmatched Mediterranean beauty. Skippers can provide you with unequalled information about the islands, the ocean, the winds, the best restaurants, weather forecasts, seabed conditions, and, most importantly, the best marinas to moor at near tourist destinations of interest to you. If you and your crew choose to anchor for the night, the skipper will recommend the safest and best marinas to dock at. Of course, you and your skipper can discuss your preferences for a sailing route or cruising location, and you can even work together to build an itinerary that meets your needs. In other words, they can provide as much or as little expert advice as you like.
You can hire a hostess to assist with keeping the boat clean, preparing simple Croatian food, and making valuable suggestions, depending on your personal needs and the size of your yacht. You must make certain that both the hostess and the skipper have their own berth or cabin onboard. Communicate your dining preferences with your skipper; feel free to invite them if you are dining out, however some may choose to retire to bed early after a hard day of sailing, in which case you might choose to pay their low-cost meal. You can additionally tip your skipper 15-20% of the skipper fee to express your gratitude for their exceptional services.
Skippers are courteous and experienced sailors who have a wealth of local expertise to ensure you get the most out of your sailing trip. They can be as discreet as you want them to be, and you are not obligated to include them in your actions if it makes you feel uncomfortable in any way. If you want to learn to sail, your skipper will gladly engage you as much or as little as you like in sailing the yacht. They take pleasure in passing on their knowledge, enthusiasm, and experience while ensuring that you have a pleasant and peaceful sailing trip. You must pay to moor each night at a harbor, marina, or mooring buoy in Croatia. However, there are several areas where you can moor for free and bring your dinghy ashore. The mooring charge is determined by the location and size of the yacht, and fuel is reasonably inexpensive, ranging from 100 to 150 Euros each week depending on the vessel's size.
• A Croatia skippered gulet charter is ideal for any season and occasion.
Regardless of the occasion, a skippered yacht rental in Croatia is a unique way to celebrate. There will be a yacht to meet your specifications and budget among the large number of magnificent yachts available. A skippered boat charter provides everlasting memories and experiences, whether for a romantic getaway, a honeymoon trip, or a family and friends vacation.

National Park of Krka
Canyons and waterfalls don't seem to belong in the same sentence as sailing, sunbathing, or snorkeling. When it comes to summer vacations in Croatia, they go hand in hand. When visiting Krka National Park, the combination of salty and sweet water sensations is a fantastic fit. If you sail northwest from Split, you'll arrive in Ibenik, where the Krka River joins the Adriatic Sea.
Passing through the old St. Nicholas fortification, which has been guarding Ibenik since the 15th century, affords breathtaking vistas. Following that, one is treated to a spectacular perspective of St. Jacob's Cathedral, which is recognized by UNESCO as a world historic site. Now is the time to sail up the river, following its twists past the steep rock formations that form one of Croatia's most stunning canyons. When the bow of your gullet meets the waters of Prokljan Lake, the river excursion is over. Your captain will stay on the river and anchor the boat in front of Skradin's ancient town.
The Krka National Park can be reached by renting a bike or using a shuttle boat from here. This is where the mountain river Krka carved beautiful travertine barriers and a fantastic waterfall system by flowing through calcite stones. The area is rich in old mills, which showcase not only stunning scenery but also the traditional method of flour production. Those interested in cultural heritage may choose to go up the river to Visovac Island. At 1445, the Franciscans established themselves in this location. Visovac has remained a haven of serenity and prayer throughout the violent history of this region. On the other side, those who appreciate a good bite and a drink can linger in the park's core area and sample the local cuisine on offer. This is how we combine salty and sweet water in a single journey.
Dalmatian Paticada preparation-The celebration on your plate
Many individuals consider nutrition to be more than just an energy source. Some of them make an effort to make each of their meals a celebration. Gastronomy is an inescapable component of our major goal of offering amazing moments to our guests while sailing the Adriatic. All of the meals on our onboard menus are authentic and unique. The Dalmatian paticada would be one of them. It's about a dinner that was only served on our forefathers' plates on rare occasions like birthdays, weddings, Christmas, or other significant holidays.
Because there are as many recipes for Dalmatian paticada as there are grandmothers in Dalmatia, it's a little tricky to explain how to make it. While every chef has their own methods for producing this delicacy, here is the general explanation. Dalmatian paticada is created using beef silverside that has been marinated in a vinegar and wine mixture, as well as chopped onions and herbs. The longer the meat is marinated, the better the flavor and the tenderness of the meat. Bacon, garlic, and carrots are inserted into the meat after it has marinated for (at least) two days.
The paticada will be more flavorful as a result of this. The meat must now be lightly browned on all sides before being cooked for hours, until soft and tender and enveloped by a thick and wonderful sauce. Dalmatian paticada is eaten with potato dumplings, bringing together sweet, sour, and salty flavors in one dish. This delicacy dates back to ancient Greek and Roman periods, and it has been refined and improved over the ages in Dalmatia. Nowadays, it is a source of pride for every chef, and the recipe is passed down down the generations. May your sailing vacation in Dalmatia not end without a taste of paticada.
Authentic and pristine Croatia
When you return home with pleasant recollections of experiencing something unique and unlike any other destination, your visit to Croatia becomes even more valuable. There are a plethora of guidebooks on the market that will teach you about unique and remarkable locations. If you compare them, you'll notice that they all tell the same narrative. As a result, utilizing your skipper's local knowledge will enhance the value of your sailing holidays in Croatia. Not to mention the fact that you must trust them in the first place because they are in charge of your floating dwellings, and your life is literally in their hands.
• One of the places that should be on their lists of places to visit is Stončica bay at the island of Vis.
It's about a harbor with a gorgeous lighthouse on its cape that leads to a wonderful sandy beach on Vis' mainland. All winds except northerlies are well shielded in the harbor, and the anchor holds well. The bay's waters are clear and blue, but as you go closer to the beach, they turn green and yellow. A beach volleyball match sounds like a wonderful idea if you want to stretch your muscles after a day of leisurely sunbathing on your yacht's deck and pleasant swimming.
After a match in a nearby tavern, the winners enjoy all the glory, while the losers are about to pay for the drink. As the best comes last, an authentic meal at Stonica would be the cherry on top of your day. The tavern near the shore provides many memorable experiences. It is run by three brothers who divide the responsibilities among themselves. One is in charge of catching the fish, another is a winemaker, and the third is in charge of the fireplace and the other two brothers. Aside from the grilled catch of the day, the outstanding locally bred lamb on the grill is a must-try.
Start with homemade prut (Dalmatian air-dried ham) and salted sardines, then go on to risotto and finish with the griller tidbits mentioned before. Stonica's wine, as well as the vegetables and other ingredients offered, are all grown just behind the bar. The fact that there is no internet or mobile phone service signal at the bar is probably the best aspect of the narrative since it allows one to really appreciate the beauty of this bay.
