How to choose ideal Yacht

Sailing in Croatia

Croatia is the No.1 destination for yacht charter and sailing holidays. The mild Mediterranean climate allows sailing year-round, with slightly more favorable conditions from spring to autumn. The fact that more than 3000 boats are on offer for charter all over the Adriatic is a proof that everyone can find the right kind of vacation at sea.

From smaller motor boats, which are ideal for day trips, over sailboats, catamarans, motor yachts and classic wooden gulets. The choice of the ideal yacht for charter is influenced by several factors, of which, the most relevant is the budget, the number of persons and of course, the rental season.

If you want complete privacy and sailing at your own pace, private yacht charter is ideal for you. Of course, if you have the necessary experience and adequate licenses, you can charter a bareboat yacht.  While, anyone who wants a vacation at sea but does not have the necessary licenses or experience, must rent a yacht with a professional skipper. Of course, if you want a more complete service, you can hire fully crewed yacht, with hostess and chef.

You are planning a cruise at sea, and at the same time you want to meet new cultures and guests from all over the world, it is a high recommendation for a cabin charter. Cabin charter is also a more affordable option, as all additional costs, food and drink, fuel and berths in the ports are included in the price. With cabin charter cruise, sailing routes are planned in advance, which change only in case of adverse weather conditions.

Motor boat

is ideal for daily cruising. This is perfect choice if you are spending vacation at holiday home and want to fulfill days and explore the islands. Motor boats are available for day tours, with or without professional skipper. As they are quite fast, you can visit several islands in just one day.

If you are looking for more luxurious yacht for a special occasions, like bachelor party, birthday or anniversary we can arrange custom made cruise on a motor yacht.

Sailing yacht

For beginners and experienced sailors, multi day vacation with family or friends, sailboat is always a good choice. We offer wide range of sailing yachts,  from 30` to 60`.

If you are beginner or have no experience at all, we suggest to hire a yacht with professional skipper. To have more complete service on the sea, you can hire extra crew members, hostess / cook, or even a baby sitter and yoga instructor.

Sailing yachts are ideal for relaxed, slow paced island hopping in Croatia.

Motor yacht

For speed and adventurous cruise lovers, motor yachts are best choice. Just like sailboats, motor yachts can be hired with professional skipper and crew. Normally, bigger yachts are available only with fixed crew.  Motor yachts hire cost is higher in comparison to sailboat, both, rental fee and fuel consumption cost. The advantage is you can reach more destinations in a short period of time.


Stability and comfort is the biggest catamaran`s advantage.  Most of the catamarans in Croatia are sail catamarans, although, there are power catamarans too.

Large sun deck and lounge areas ideal for bigger groups and families with kids. 

There is a large choice of the catamaran models, from 38` to 77`.  Models up to 50` can be chartered as bareboat or with skipper, bigger models are available only with fixed crew.


Classic, wooden boats lovers will enjoy relaxed cruising along the Adriatic on a gulet. They usually come in version from 5 to 7 cabins, and same like sailing catamarans, gulets are ideal for bigger groups.  Service is provided with complete crew, captain, deckhand and chef, depending of the boat size, there can be even more staff.
