Chartering a yacht in Croatia is the ideal way to discover this gorgeous Mediterranean country, known for its idyllic beaches and crystal-clear waters as well as its vibrant culture and breathtaking sunsets.

At Yacht Chartering Worldwide we understand that understanding the cost of yacht charter is vital when planning a trip. In order to find something within your budget it’s essential that we fully explain what a charter will entail before initiating plans for it.

Cost of a yacht charter

Planning a yacht charter in Croatia can be costly. Many factors contribute to its overall cost, including vessel size and type, rental of dinghys for navigation/safety equipment and linen rental costs; prices should usually be listed on a charter price list or website.

Croatia’s yachting season runs from mid-May through September, but peak prices occur during July and August. A yacht charter provides an excellent way to discover Croatia and its picturesque coastline while avoiding crowds.

Sailing yachts provide the ideal blend of comfort and adventure, making them the ideal way to explore Eastern Mediterranean islands like Corsica. Charters also save money on hotel bills and restaurant fees!

Types of yachts available for charter

Croatia is a prime yachting destination, boasting scenic coastal towns and islands to discover. Our charter experts can develop a personalized itinerary tailored to meet your preferences and budget, with fleet options ranging from 30-foot bareboat sailboats to crewed luxury catamarans or motor yachts available for rental.

Croatia’s sailing season runs from March through mid-October, with July and August being its peak period when temperatures are at their warmest and marinas are busiest.

Your yacht can be docked at various marinas, such as ACI Marina Dubrovnik and ACI Marina Split. Mooring buoys may also offer more tranquil anchorage locations; daily costs for monohull yachts typically range between 30-40 Euros and 40-50 Euros for catamarans.

Safety measures

Croatia offers ideal sailing conditions with historic towns, delicious cuisine, picturesque beaches and ample space to visit multiple islands without jeopardizing your safety.

No matter which motor (powered) boat or luxury catamaran charter you select, rest assured that they come equipped with impeccable maintenance and top-of-the-line equipment. However, it’s essential that before embarking on any Croatia yacht charter you consider some safety aspects that you should keep in mind.

Croatia yacht charter rates typically include the charter fee, end-cleaning fees and security deposits (pre-authorisation on credit cards). Furthermore, your charter company will bill for any additional expenses such as fuel, food & beverages or communication charges that arise; to reduce these costs further it may be possible to request an Advanced Provisioning Allowance (APA), an extra amount paid out as payment to cover these costs with potential refund upon check out.

Ports of call

Croatia offers an unforgettable yacht charter experience. Explore ancient walled cities such as Dubrovnik or hike or kayak out to its remote islands; dine at top-class restaurants offering exquisite cuisine; and be mesmerized by breathtaking sunsets!

If you prefer more sedate sailing adventures, late May, June and September offer ideal weather conditions in Croatia. Sailing here during these months offers more pleasant conditions than during peak summer season with its fresh westerly wind known as “Maestral”, plus reduced crowds compared to July and August.

On a Croatia yacht charter, destinations of interest might include Hvar, famous for its party scene; Korcula with its impressive old town and island hopping; Mljet’s idyllic national park; Vis, which boasts stunning beaches and crystal-clear lakes. Skradin is also must-see, being the gateway to Krka National Park with its dramatic waterfalls as well as Kornati National Park which caters for sailors alike.
