When planning your budget for a sailing holiday in Croatia, besides the costs that you pay directly to the charter company for the boat, the crew ( if hired), final cleaning/transit log or comfort package, and tourist tax, you shall count on costs on the way, which are:

Fuel consumption

This cost depends on the boat model/engine; smaller boats consume less fuel than bigger sailing boats and catamarans, especially if they are equipped with a generator. Approximate fuel costs:

  • Sailboats up to 45'        150 - 200 €/week
  • Sailboats above 50'       200 - 350 €/week
  • Catamarans up to 45'   300 - 400 €/week
  • Catamarans above 45'  500 -1000 €/week
  • Motor yachts are large consumers of fuel compared to sailboats and catamarans, and fuel consumption is the major extra cost. The consumption depends on engine power, cruising speed, yacht size, tonnage, etc. 
  • When chartering a Luxury motor yacht or Super Yacht, the fuel consumption is covered from the APA which is 20-30% of the yacht charter price

Mooring fees

Depend on the size of the boat, sailing period, and location; but you can choose between the following mooring options: a berth in the marina, a berth in the city ports on a jetty, mooring buoy

  • a berth in the marinas for mono-hulls 50-200 €/day, for catamarans, is usually + 50%-100%
  • a berth in the city ports for mono-hulls 50-80 €/day, for catamarans
  • mooring buoy appx. 20-60 € / day
  • anchoring in Croatia is free, except in few places where you will be charged
  • For prices in ACI Marinas, you can check directly on their web pages.

Car Parking

Car parking is not included in the yacht rental price. This is the extra cost, paid directly to the marina reception. Appx 50 -70 EUR per week, per car.

Food and drinks

Usually, the clients chartering a bareboat, prepare breakfast, and lunch on the boat. If you decide to have dinner out in a restaurant, you can count on the cost of 30-50€/person, of course, this can be far more expensive if you will enjoy your meals in exclusive restaurants. Food and drinks you can order in advance to be delivered on the boat, or you can make the provision by yourself on your arrival in the nearby supermarkets.

We suggest buying water and drinks for the whole week and food for the first two days, which is the minimum you should have on board. For the rest of the week, you can buy fresh products on the islands. If you have hired crew, you need to ensure they have three meals a day, and at least one should be cooked meal (on the boat, in a restaurant, or you can pay them extra for food 30 €/ day/ crew member).

If you are chartering a crewed yacht and paying the APA ( Advance Provision Allowance), all of the mentioned costs are covered from the APA. This allowance is 20-30% of the yacht charter price.
