Bareboat or skippered chartersWe can organise skippered or bareboat charters in sailing yachts or motor yachts. For bareboat charter a yacht-master’s certificate or similar qualification will be required. If you don’t have the required qualifications you can hire a skipper who will not only sail your boat but plan your route so as to see the prettiest bays and villages, visit the best restaurants tucked away in secret bays and swim where the water is the clearest and brightest.
We can help you select a yacht to charter giving you guidance on the best areas to cruise in. We have ourselves sailed extensively in the Adriatic so can give you first hand advice.
If you want to combine a week in a villa with a week cruising (either bareboat or skippered) we will suggest appropriate combinations in terms of villa locations and cruising ground so that the transfer between villa and yacht is manageable but also so areas you are cruising in do not duplicate the areas you will see while in the villa.
Principal cruising areas.
Don’t think that you will see all the Croatian islands in a single week's yacht charter. There is a lot of ground to cover and it is necessary to focus on one section of coastline. The principal cruising regions are:
Dubrovnik and the southern Dalmatian islands. Cruising in this region can encompass the Elaphite islands (Sipan, Lopud and Kolocep), the coast of the Peljesac peninsula, the island Mljet, the more remote island of Lastovo ,and the eastern end of Korcula. A great mix of relatively undeveloped coastlines with great scenery, pretty villages tucked away in dep bays and the stunning town of Korcula.
Central Dalmatian islands. Sailing in this area can include the large islands of Brac and Hvar, the more distant but gorgeous island of Vis and perhaps the western end of Korcula. The route can include historic Hvar town, the pretty harbour of Milna on Brac, Vis town and the unspoilt fishing village of Komiza. Along the way there are many smaller islands offering sheltered anchorages and wonderful bays for swimming.
The Kornati islands. Sailing in this area will suit those who are attracted by wonderful scenery, peaceful anchorages, smaller islands with limited habitation and the occasional divine waterside restaurant.
Northern Dalmatia and the Kvarner. In this region you itinerary can include beautiful and historic towns such as Rab and Mali Losinj and many smaller islands with pretty villages and cozy harbours.
