5 Insider Tips from the Captains

We asked our special Croatia yacht charter Captains for their best insider tips for potential guests heading to their shores.

“At Boasters Black, we often say that there is a luxury charter yacht in Croatia to suit every sailor. After all, we are in the business of playing yachting match-maker in the Adriatic, selecting the most ideal yacht + crew combination for every single one of our treasured guests. ”

Commercial director - Thomas O'Nial

Ask. Always.

Our Captains could not make this any clearer: yes, they will organize your itinerary long before you arrive, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be free to change any of the plans. At sea, nothing is set in stone! So please, don’t hold back and know that charter yacht Captains will go to great lengths to satisfy all your wishes when they can. Some things may not be within their control but, if you don’t ask, you will simply never know.


Rewarding charter experience

Sometimes, the crew can ‘read your mind’ but, more often than not, they cannot. Their aim is to please and deliver, and if you tell them how this can be best achieved, you will have an infinitely more rewarding charter experience.

Be flexible

The above goes both ways: many variables may make you change course. So go with the flow, trust your crew and Captain and know that your only job is to sit back, relax and thoroughly enjoy. If, for whatever reason, something cannot be done or visited, trust that your Captain will find you a spectacular alternative.


Unforgetable experiences

By the way, as experienced sailors so often attest: this is how new and incredible discoveries are often made on yacht charters in Croatia.

Follow rules and show respect, please

Luxury yachts are multi-million-dollar investments and usually a source of absolute pride for their owners and crew. So follow the barefoot rules and remember the crew is there to provide a service but not to serve.

Trust your Captain’s insider knowledge

With the explosion of online search habits, many guests arrive with extensive lists of everything they want to do and see during their yacht charter in Croatia.

Years of experience

The Captains all say that, given their experience, they have a greater wealth of insider knowledge of Croatian islands. So bring your list, by all means, but trust them when they tell you the other cove, is even more private and even more breathtaking.

Fight the urge to include too many things on your itinerary

It may be difficult to fight the urge to pack in every single day with a near-infinite list of activities and excursions. But fight you should.
Let our experienced Captains advise you…

“In all my years of yacht charter experiences, I find the best and most memorable experiences for guests have come from leisurely hours spent chatting, drinking, dining and just enjoying the company of their loved ones aboard the yacht. THIS is what they plan and pay for, and although it is fun to see it and do it all, it’s these quiet moments of togetherness aboard the yacht that make for the most unforgettable memories. I wish every potential guest would know that before even stepping onboard”
