Croatia Yacht Charter Guide

Charter a luxury yacht in Croatia for a truly unforgettable holiday on the Adriatic Sea. The striking coastline of Croatia -sprinkled with lush vineyards, fragrant olive groves and hundreds of unspoiled islands to explore – is justifiably a world-class sailing destination. With its clear waters being some of the cleanest in the Mediterranean Sea, it is not hard to see why this is such a popular charter yacht destination.

The natural beauty, warm weather, and rich culture of Croatia have attracted visitors for centuries. The perfect destination set sail through The Magical Land of a Thousand Islands by luxury yacht, and experience a vacation of a lifetime on your private charter.

Marking a symbolic gateway where East meets West, Croatia is steeped in a rich cultural history that stretches back to ancient Roman times and the Ottoman Empire, with an abundance of enchanting myths and legends to tell.

Bordered by Montenegro and Italy, a one-way luxury charter across the Adriatic Sea could begin in Venice, for example, and explore the rugged coastline all the way down to Porto Montenegro, taking in the gems of Croatia en route. This particular journey can be made in one week if time is limited, but why not take a leisurely two-week trip, and spend some time enjoying some of this fabulous coastline’s rocky islets and isolated beaches?

Why explore Croatia on a luxury yacht charter:

Beautiful coastlines and crystal blue seas

Lush green forests, striking rock formations, and glorious sand beaches meet the beautiful blue water on the Croatian coast. Every yacht charter will explore this stunning archipelago, with breathtaking scenery at every stop on your cruise.

Secluded islands and hidden bays

Take a break away from the crowds when you set sail on your luxury yacht to the peaceful islands of Croatia. Drop anchor in one of the calm bays to spend the day swimming and snorkeling in the crystal clear water.

History and rich cultural heritage

From breathtaking national heritage sites to family-owned vineyards to ancient architecture, the fascinating history and strong cultural flavors of Croatia are evident in its largest cities and quiet, picturesque towns.

Long summer cruising

The warm climate of Croatia means that you can enjoy the sunshine from May until October, with guaranteed sunshine throughout the long summer days.

Delicious local cuisine

Croatia is known for its fresh delicious dishes unlike anywhere else in Europe. Visitors can experience dishes made carefully from locally-grown ingredients, native herbs, and fresh fish caught by local fishermen.

dubrovnik

Dating back to the 7th century, the ancient city of Dubrovnik displays unique architecture and fascinating history. Explore the fascinating Old Town filled with restaurants and shops and get a feeling of its rich history. The stone walls that once protected the citizens from seagoing marauders now provide an impressive landmark. Cars are not allowed in the old town, which comes alive in the summer months with its annual music festival as the town is filled with classical music and world-renowned performers. Private and charter yachts tend to anchor beyond the harbour, and charterers then enjoy the pleasant amble from the marina through the bustling streets and into the city’s fabulous old town. Following Croatia’s war for independence in the 1990’s, many of the beautiful stone and terracotta buildings have been reconstructed most sympathetically and with historical accuracy, inviting you to step back in time and savour the country’s rich history. A cable car to Mount Srd offers stunning views of town and coast, although superb views can also be seen from the promenade atop the city walls, overlooking the sparkling Adriatic Sea. Enjoy a dinner with a stunning view at the trendy 360° Restaurant set within the city great walls. The area is famous for its seafood dishes, peka in Croatian, which are made with octopus and potatoes. Great views of Croatia, however, can also be experienced from the deck of your private yacht charter, without a doubt.

split

If history and culture pique your interest, the second largest city in Croatia, Split is centered around the palace of Roman Emperor Diocletian, which dates back to the 4th century. Once home to thousands of people, the palace’s remains include more than 200 buildings. Spend an afternoon discovering this Unesco World Heritage and enjoy a drink in one of the dozens of bars by the atmospheric old city walls. Split is also known for its stunning beaches.

cavtat & korcula

Cavtat or the island of Korčula, which is believed to have once been inhabited by Marco Polo, are also interesting historical destinations. You can just imagine him strolling the waterfront as he planned his travels, although these days as you wander along the streets of Korčula you are more likely to spot movie stars shooting in this popular location.

MLJET

Set in one of Croatia’s national parks, the green landscape of Mljet is a seductive contrast to the rocky Croatian coastline. Legend has it that the beauty of Mljet captivated Odysseus for seven years. Anchor at Polace on the island’s northern coast and hire a bike to visit the Benedictine Monastery, or explore the trails to watch the sunset over the lakes of the island. Make sure to taste the local red wine and fresh goat cheese. It is one of the most beautiful and most verdant islands in the Adriatic, called by many “the pearl of the Mediterranean”, and is best explored by yacht.

VIS

The small island of Vis is the farthest inhabited island off the Croatian mainland. A Yugoslav military base for over forty years, Vis was cut off from foreign visitors until 1989, which has kept it well preserved and authentic to this date. The island boasts a rich vegetation of olive groves and vines, and has its own variety of grape called vugava, which has been cultivated here since ancient times. Vis’ beaches are quite remote and Milna and Srebrna are not to be missed.

HVAR

Hvar is the sunniest and most cosmopolitan island in Croatia. There are plenty of secluded bays that you can choose to anchor during the day and at night make your way to Hvar Town. If you are looking for a fun night out, head to Carpe Diem Club, one of the most ‘it’ spots on the island. Stari Grad and Jelsa are the cultural and historical centres of Hvar and its more serene spots. Find a quieter anchorage in which to soak up the Mediterranean sunshine, or partake in some water sports whilst drinking in the spectacular views.
