A hidden jewel on the Adriatic, Croatia is a very special destination where you will experience incredibly clear water, warm weather, a fascinating variety of landscapes and welcoming hospitality. Cavtat is the perfect place to start your charter, a small town just south and east of Dubrovnik; strolling along its cobbled streets as the sun sets will leave you dreamy and serene. Dubrovnik itself is a wonder to behold, a city brimming with energy and strength, not to mention great cuisine. The Dalmatian coast is host to hundreds of islands, many of which are nature reserves or uninhabited – perfect for your privacy. Hvar, Split, Sibenik, Pula, and Rovijn reach north towards Italy; each offers its own magic – Roman Ruins, great cascades, booming nightlife – don’t miss it!
The rugged coastline of Croatia is perfect for exploring, although longer than you can easily see in just a week.
Local restrictions on who may charter in Croatia means that many yachts will begin their charter in either Venice and travel north along the coast to Dubrovnik, or start in Montenegro, visiting the islands that are part of the national park system and end the charter in Split.
Whatever your choice, the rustic charm of small villages with the clean, clear water of the Adriatic lets you step back in time and enjoy exploring an area that welcomes visitors.
Yachts with Croatian crew are often power yachts, with some traditional gulets and sailing yachts also available. Many crew speak English as well and are happy to share the beauties and history of their country. Croatia is a place where West meets East and this cultural mix is found in cuisine, architecture and local wines.
Marinas are found in larger towns, most often one drops an anchor and ties up stern to the waterfront of fishing villages or anchors in an isolated and quiet cove.
This little known area is attracting some of the best in luxury super yachts, both sail and power, because it is such a wonderful and memorable yacht charter destination.
