Croatia yacht charter

This spectacular country may well be Europe’s hidden gem, but its star is rising fast. And no wonder…everyone who has ever been lucky enough to charter a yacht in Croatia waxes lyrical about falling in love at first sight. And who would blame them? Croatia is the ultimate yachting temptation and a charter experience in these magnificent waters is an affair you will never, ever, forget.

Why charter a luxury yacht in Croatia?

Croatia is a land of jaw-dropping islands, crystalline seas, rolling hills, jagged peaks and fig trees. This is arguably Europe’s most enticing yachting destination, especially for first-time charterers. Short sailing distances, inviting and protected waters and an impressive array of itinerary options make Croatia yacht charters not only easy but also insanely enjoyable. The sheer concentration of natural, cultural and historical highlights means everyone finds something here to tickle their fancy. Culture vultures, snorkelers, beach-bums, dedicated sailors, foodies and even Game of Thrones fans: no matter who you are or what you like, you’re guaranteed to find your own slice of yachting heaven, right here.

History

Croatia has traditionally been one of the most hotly contested countries in all of Europe, and its amazing coastline has always made it priceless and highly coveted. Several empires have ruled over these lands – from the ancient Illyrians to the Romans, Venetians and even the Austrians – each one leaving its indelible marks on the architecture, culture, history and cuisine.

For history aficionados and anyone who thrives on discovering invaluable treasures of antiquity, Croatia is unrivalled. Here, you’ll discover Europe’s best-preserved Medieval towns, most boasting postcard-perfect seaside locations. This, above all else, is what makes yacht charters in Croatia so very astonishing.

About Croatia

Croatia may be relatively ‘unknown’ to some, yet in dedicated yachting circles, her star has been shining for decades. Given that sailing itinerary options here are so many, you could easily sail in Croatia every single year for decades and always find a new island, deserted cove or out-there beach to discover. Many yacht guests, even the most experienced and discerning, do just that.

Best time to charter a yacht in Croatia

With quite perfect weather for about 10 months a year, Croatia takes advantage of its southern European location to offer a much longer yacht charter season than its most notable northern neighbours.

September, October and even November make for great charter experiences, although there’s no denying that July and August are the very best months, climate-wise, to meander the coast and the many islands by yacht. The height of the European summer (July and August) sees an uptick of visitors to the coast and all the island and it can get a little squeezy – especially in crazy-popular stopovers like Dubrovnik.

The Croatian yachting season kicks off in May when the rest of Europe is still dealing with far-too-cold days. Down here, however, crystal clear skies and balmy days make for excellent sailing.

Jan – March

January and February are the coldest months of the year and, along the coast, it can get down to 0C at first light and reach tops of 5C. Snowfall on the coast is rare. Sea temps in winter are still reasonable on the Adriatic and, in Croatia, level out at about 13C.

April – June

The wonderful spring season sees daytime temps reach up to 22C, with an average of 15C. Sea temps will rise as the weeks progress, starting out at 14C and going up to about 18C in June.

July – August

Expect long and hot days of up to 30C, with night-time lows of 20C. This is the perfect time of year for enjoying the sea, the yacht’s water toys and long stints of snorkelling and scuba diving. Sea temps in summer reach a dreamy 25C – this is when you’re likely to spend entire days frolicking in the sea.

Sept-October

In September with daytime temps staying above 25C, sea temps remaining around a very enjoyable 20C, Croatian yacht charters in September are perhaps the best of the year.

Low season Croatian yacht charters are also impressively discounted.

Gastronomy

Let’s talk about food!
A foodie hub bar none, Croatia is also one of the most delectable yachting destinations in Europe.

How is that for sailing perfection?

Revered for producing some of the best artisanal olive oils, wines, cheeses, honey and jams in Europe, Croatia offers ridiculously delicious experiences at every turn. The seafood offerings along the coast, like the mouth-watering Black Risotto (crni rižot, made with locally sourced squid), are reason enough to charter a yacht. That’s no joke, it really is that amazing.

Culinary heaven

Drizzle that with a generous lug of award-winning Šoltansko olive oil and organic Pag sea salt, and you’ll be in culinary heaven! Blessed by fertile soil and an abundance of sunshine, Croatia is a fabulous destination for all food lovers, and we’re happy to thank all the gods that be for this delightful bonus.

Awaken your Croatian taste buds

If that’s not all, on Croatian luxury yacht charters, you can delight your taste buds on regional specialities like cured Istrian ham and cheeses, oxen carpaccio (boškarin), an Italian-influenced seafood stew called (brudet) and mussel stew (buzara); not to mention an array of locally sourced fresh produce that makes even the simplest of snacks – like vine-ripened tomatoes on crusty bread – feel like an incredible indulgence.

Top locations of Croatian luxury yacht charters

Luxury Croatian yacht charters serve up incredible highlights every single day. You’ll no doubt be including the most famous seaside treasures to your itinerary, but we thought you may enjoy a sneak-peek of some lesser-known gems you can discover on your next private yacht charter vacation.

Korčula

Picturesque and utterly enchanting, the island and Old Town of Korčula are an unmissable inclusion on Croatian yachting itineraries. The historic core is nestled in a charming peninsula whilst the rest of the island is all about raw, unspoilt and outstanding wilderness. Seaside villages are unique and revered for their distinctive arts and crafts so if it’s a spot of shopping, hiking, sunbathing and strolling you’re after, do not sail past this little island delight.

Brač

Want to indulge in some diving and snorkelling? Then head on over to Brač, where the crystalline seas, sandy beaches and underwater enchantments will captivate all your senses.

Vis

When the bustling crowds get a little too much on the mainland coast, head to resplendent Vis and enjoy the quietude, the ancient city walls and that verdant wilderness. This is the farthest island from the Croatian mainland, so it never gets crowded. A hidden gem within a hidden gem? You bet!

Mali Losinj

If you have over one week to charter a luxury yacht in Croatia, we suggest you head further north and explore the least-visited coast and islands – like Mali Losinj. This densely forested island boasts just a few towns and all showcase fabulous Venetian-era architecture. The protected waters host a marine reserve, and here you’ll find some of the most startling coves in the entire country. Blinding white rocky cliffs cascading into sapphire seas make for the most iridescent bays. Magic!
