Croatian law mandates all yachts must be operated by licensed skippers; to rent one in Croatia is possible but requires that a skipper’s licence be obtained first.

From July through the middle of September is considered to be an optimal time for boat rentals in Croatia, when water temperatures are at their warmest and mistral winds are more prevalent.

Bareboat charters

Opting for a bareboat yacht charter is an ideal way to experience Croatia with family or friends. A bareboat comes equipped with everything needed for an enjoyable sailing vacation; however, this type of charter does not include a skipper; therefore during your vacation you will be responsible for managing both crew members and boat.

Bareboat charters are increasingly becoming a favorite choice among experienced sailors as well as those seeking an independent sailing experience. You can tailor the itinerary and take full advantage of Croatia’s stunning islands while visiting smaller, remoter destinations that may not be easily accessible via land travel.

However, you should keep in mind that a bareboat charter requires at least one person with a sailing or navigation license in Croatia – this is legally necessary and makes the experience much more enjoyable and safe for your group. If none are available within your group then an optional skipper service is also available at an additional cost.
