Best time to charter a yacht in Croatia

With perfect weather almost year-round, Croatia takes advantage of its southern location to offer a much longer yacht charter season than its more northern neighbors in Europe.

September, October and even November journeys make for great charter experiences, although there’s no denying that July and August are the very best months, climate-wise, to meander the coastal waters and the many islands by yacht. The height of the European summer sees an uptick of visitors, so what better way to avoid the crowds than heading over to the hidden coves and beaches on your own yacht.

The temperature of the Adriatic Sea during winter is still reasonable and on land levels out at about 13C, with an average of 8 hours of sunshine per day in the month of March.

The Croatian yachting season kicks off in May when the rest of Europe is still dealing with chilly days. At the Dalmatian coast, however, crystal clear skies and balmy days make for excellent sailing.

Frequently asked questions about a yacht charter in Croatia

What does the charter contract look like?

The majority of the industry works with standardised contracts which have been created and refined by a consortium of industry professionals called MYBA. The charter contract outlines all the variables of a specific charter, such as the yacht, price, dates and location, as well as all the terms and conditions which cover all eventualities and the relationship between the various parties to the agreement.

In addition to the charter rate, which is the cost of renting the yacht, its equipment and its crew, there are extra costs which will be charged on top. These typically include any tax due on the charter (see VAT section above) and the APA which covers everything you will consume during your charter. On a case by case basis there may be delivery fees if you prefer to book the yacht in a location different to its base. Finally, some yachts require security deposits when hosting events.

All yachts have a limitation as to the number of guests which can be accommodated on board. This relates to the rules and regulations for the safety of passengers and is determined for each yacht based on the number of berths (individual sleeping places) and safety equipment. The maximum number of guests on board is usually 12, which is dictated by the general rules for commercial vessels, although some larger yachts can accommodate up to 36 guests if they are classified as passenger ships.

The process of booking a yacht can be quite complex, between finding the right yacht from the thousands available on the market, negotiating the best rates, the contract, working out the itinerary, the most efficient tax structure and many more. Our charter agents are here to take care of all the details so that you can focus on the fun part of the trip: relaxing on board and enjoying the sea and the area you are cruising!
