Catamaran Charter Croatia With Skipper

Croatia’s Dalmatian coast offers relaxing cruising and island hopping for those who prefer an effortless sailing holiday experience. Dotted with charming islets and historical villages, its tranquil waters make an idyllic location for unwinding.

Skippers on yacht charters are friendly and will interact with your group as per their individual preferences during your cruise. Furthermore, they will take care of all technical details of your cruise.


Skippers are experienced professionals who will oversee navigation and safety aboard your catamaran, freeing you to explore Croatia’s beautiful islands without worry or stress. A skipper has first-hand knowledge of various factors that affect sailing conditions – wind speeds and tide movements are two that directly impact sailing conditions – enabling him to adapt your itinerary as necessary.

Catamarans are luxurious boats offering amenities such as fully equipped kitchens, comfortable sleeping quarters and open living areas. Additionally, their versatility enables access to remote coves and beaches not accessible with larger boats; many skippers even share their sailing expertise by acting as floating classrooms for novice sailors.

Zlatni Rat, Croatia’s most beloved beach, features turquoise waters and an idyllic stretch of golden sand that stretches into the sea. Anchor here for an idyllic day of tanning while taking in stunning ocean and island views from your anchor spot. Alternatively, head to Trogir Old Town harbor and wander its winding streets to marvel at Trogir’s medieval architecture that earned it UNESCO World Heritage status.


A skipper is responsible for the safety of all passengers aboard their yacht, assessing and forecasting weather conditions on Croatian waters, suggesting suitable routes, mooring and anchoring them when necessary and handling their vessel as needed.

Your skipper will always keep the best interests of your party in mind during a charter trip, helping plan an itinerary, selecting islands to visit, mooring and anchoring procedures and even teaching sailing techniques.

Catamarans offer maximum comfort and space to relax while taking in breathtaking views of Croatia’s coastline. Accessing hidden coves and beaches by catamaran will leave lasting memories. Spring (April to May) and fall (October-November) offer more serene sailing experiences with fewer tourists, making these seasons perfect for new sailors looking for an easier sailing experience or those wanting a quiet yacht charter in Croatia.

Local knowledge

Skippered charters are an ideal solution for those without valid sailing credentials or who would simply prefer to relax on holiday without worrying about navigational tasks. Skippers possess extensive knowledge of Croatia’s coastline, islands and routes as well as offering beautiful secluded anchorages for you to unwind in and make the most out of their yacht charter experience.

Skippers know their yachts intimately, enabling them to provide advice based on group size and budget, as well as help find you the most suitable charter boat. Their local contacts also enable them to take advantage of attractive offers or discounts from restaurants, parties and services that could lead to significant cost savings on a catamaran cruise Croatia trip.

Arriving aboard the boats typically occurs between 5 and 7 pm for a relaxing evening experience and to be ready for the new day ahead – when waking up with each sunrise brings with it new adventures.


Renting a catamaran with skipper is an ideal option for beginners or anyone seeking a hassle-free sailing experience. Your skipper will take care in handling navigation, safety and operation of the yacht while leaving you free to discover Croatia’s beautiful landscape and delightful destinations.

Your skipper’s local expertise will prove invaluable when selecting the perfect islands and coves. He will also suggest suitable destinations based on your personal tastes – be it relaxing on an idyllic beach or discovering vibrant cultural cities like Split.

Large catamarans enable you to anchor or buoy, saving money on marina fees. However, you will still need to cover the costs of hiring a skipper and provide him with food; depending on your preference he may join you at meals or dine on his own; Sailo offers 24 hour free storage so you can decide whether it is suitable.
