Yacht Charter in Croatia

With one of the most spectacular coastlines and countless island jewels, a sailing charter experience in Croatia is something that everyone should experience at least once. After your first Croatia sailing yacht charter, odds are, you’ll be back again with so much breathtaking scenery, natural beauty, countless unspoiled beaches and secluded coves with turquoise waters for swimming on the Croatian coast. Not to mention exploring inland Croatia, with its rich historic sites and fascinating medieval cities to discover.

There are many options for yacht charter destinations and of course, our specialists can advise the right sailing experience for you. For example, some of our charter yachts in Croatia begin in the ancient city of Split, or the historic Old Town of Dubrovnik before setting out to explore the islands.

A week spent sailing the Croatian islands on a private yacht might include visiting popular gems like the cosmopolitan islands of Hvar with its lively nightlife, historic landmarks, vineyards and lavender fields. Or you might moor your Croatia charter yachts in Korcula, with its storybook walled town, complete with gates, ramparts and towers.

Our skippered charters also dock at less-visited islands that don’t get the attention they deserve, like Solta which provides the chance to experience authentic Croatian culture, still untouched by mass tourism.

You can also enjoy gulet charters or motor yachts, docking on land and enjoying excursions like visiting local wineries and perhaps even meet the winemaker for a chat about the winemaking process along with a tasting. And, every day, your grand finale is likely to be an awe-inspiring sunset whilst dining in a different island each evening.

Island-hopping whilst exploring Croatia is one of the most popular holiday experiences, and charter vacations in a sailing yacht or a crewed yacht are a perfect choice.

The Catamaran's Cabins

The airy feeling and spaciousness of this vessel continues when heading below deck with the four comfortable cabins, each including a large double bed that ensures a peaceful night’s sleep out on the water. They are also exceptionally well-lit from natural light due to those large glazed panels on the hulls and come with outstanding non-natural lighting too, making it easy to read a book before getting some shuteye.
