Top reasons to charter a yacht in Croatia this summer

Over the years Croatia has increasingly become a firm must do for superyachts seeking a special charter destination. Despite its growing popularity Croatia remains remarkably unspoiled and boasts pristine waters and beaches as well as countless cultural highlights. This nation of islands is perfect to be explored by yacht. Dive in and find out why a charter in Croatia is so unique with our top recommendations for a charter in this incredible country.

Explore anywhere in Croatia and expect to be overwhelmed with the country’s incredible history and culture. Dubrovnik has been classed a UNESCO World Heritage City and is peppered with historic highlights including the Old Town, Fort of St John and countless historic churches. Tour the abandoned village of Malo Grablje in Hvar, visit Split which dates back to the 3rd century and still has the remains of over 200 historic buildings, or simply walk down cobbled streets and imagine yourself stepping back in time.


Croatia’s natural beauty is reason to visit in itself, and it is almost impossible to narrow down the highlights. Mljet is famed for its beauty – said to have captivated Odysseus himself – and is a part of one of Croatia’s many national parks. Lastovo is Croatia’s remotest island – ideal for visiting by yacht – and subsequently has been preserved with an untouched air and wild beauty. Croatia is home to a wealth of stunning dive spots throughout the country and clear blue waters invite you to dive in and appreciate the underwater natural beauty, with waters teeming with life and inviting wrecks to explore.


Croatia is home to a large number of vineyards, all set in beautiful surroundings that make a vineyard visit a true pleasure. Central and South Dalmatia are considered the birth place of Zinfandel; enjoy the bold flavors of a glass of locally-made Zinfandel as you relax on the deck of your yacht. The island of Vis has a long history of wine making even boasts its own grape variety – vugava – that dates back to ancient days and is worth a visit. For something unique try Edivo Vina, an underwater winery where wine is buried under the waves to age it – take home a bottle with shells still clinging to it.


One of the best ways to get a real feel for Croatia is to explore its many harbors – this is an extremely enjoyable way to experience as much of Croatia as possible. Cruise the beautiful coastline and enjoy the sight of village after village sitting against a backdrop of mountains covered in olive groves. Moor up in the harbor, or simply come ashore by tender to enjoy the charms of Croatia’s numerous waterside settlements. For variety, Hvar is an excellent place to start your journey and offers an exciting combination of bustling markets, a busy nightlife and boutique shopping.


Don’t miss the chance to come ashore and explore Croatia by foot, drinking in the sights, smells and flavors. Take your pick from countless restaurants and try some of Croatia’s delicious local dishes, with highlights including locally grown olives, flavorful octopus salad, brudet (a slow cooked fish casserole) and black squid risotto. Most towns will have a local market to explore – perfect for selecting an edible souvenir to take back with you to your yacht.
