Croatia Yacht Charter

A Croatia yacht charter has serious vacation appeal. The sun-kissed charms of the Dalmatian coastline, speckled with its fringe of islands lapped by a turquoise sea, makes for a delightful cruising experience. Abundant with charming anchorages, diverse scenery, and adored by charter guests for its long, balmy summertimes, a Croatia yacht rental itinerary is simply magical.

Verdant, secluded landscapes are of course aplenty in Croatia too. Soak up the stillness of the isolated Kornati islands, or down anchor at Korčula – replete with a rich tapestry of undulating vineyards and olive groves amid glittering waters. Venture south towards the unspoilt island of Mljet for exquisite wineries and seafood platters beneath fragrant pines, or opt for Brač's illustrious Zlatni Rat beach for idyllic bronzing and watersport opportunities.

Popular Sub-Regions in Croatia

Dalmatia Region

This is one of the most popular regions for yacht charters in Croatia. Located on the southern coast, its made up of 233 miles of coastline, islands, and reefs, and includes the must-see historic towns of Split and Dubrovnik, as well as hundreds of stunning verdant islands and national parks. 

Croatia's second-largest city – its "crown jewel', Split has a history dating back to the 4th century. It is also home to the beautiful Roman Diocletian's Palace, a top recommended destination for your tour.

Split also boasts some of Croatia's largest marinas, and is within shooting distance of the celebrated islands of Korčula, Hvar, Vis, and Brač. Visit the world-famous Zlatni Rat beach on Brač's southern side, or sample the vibrant nightlife and clubbing scene on Hvar, which also plays host to several regattas over the summer season. Further south is Dubrovnik, a UNESCO World Heritage site of huge architectural prominence.

Located in the north of Croatia, this region has a distinctly Italian feel to it, and has plenty of fantastic places to visit. Pula, the region's capital, is crammed with museums, which isn't surprising given its history that dates back to 3,000BC.

Across the water, lies the Brijuni National Park, a group of 14 small picturesque islands easily accesible from the mainland. Slightly to the north, the beautiful old fishing port of Rovinj is also well-worth a visit, with its steep cobbled streets and charming piazzas. 

Travel south to historic Zadar, where you can enjoy a quiet walk along marbled streets and pine-scented beaches. Further south you will find the Kornati archipelago, a group of 100 or so relatively barren islands and reefs which are perfect for swimming and snorkelling.

Who Goes on a Croatia Yacht Charter?

Avid island-hoppers seeking solitude love a Croatia yacht charter itinerary. Of approximately 1,185 islands just 66 are inhabited, making the unfettered beauty of its isles, inlets and bays ripe for exploration. Among these wonderful islands to explore are the verdant gems of Hvar, Vis, Korčula, and Brač.

But yacht rentals in Croatia are also ideal for guests seeking impressive designer shopping, exquisite wineries and glittering nightlife in its main cities.

History and Culture

islands in croatia

Culminating from Illyrian, Roman, Venetian, Christian, and Austrian empires all competing for Croatia’s ownership, Croatia is home to an astoundingly rich cultural heritage. This makes for a fabulous yacht charter: from the Venetian palaces and designer boutiques of the jet-set haven of Hvar; to the Benedictine beauty of the UNESCO-listed walled city of Dubrovnik; to the Italian infused architecture and cosmopolitan ambiance of Pula and beyond.  

Types of Yacht Charters in Croatia

As one of the most popular destinations for yacht charters in the East Mediterranean, there should be plenty to choose from when it comes to luxury yachts for charter in Croatia. If you’re unsure about whether you want to book a motor yacht or a sailing yacht for your Croatian getaway, there are a few things you should consider first.

Motor Yacht Charters in Croatia

Whether you are interested in a small or large motor yacht, or somewhere in between, you should find a Croatia luxury charter that will more than meet your expectations. With a luxury motor yacht you can truly relax; soaking up the stunning scenery, or scuba diving reefs and wrecks under clear aqua waters, or taking a tender ashore to explore ancient Roman palaces and monasteries, as well as sampling the local cuisine and wines. 

You should note that berth/slip options in Croatia for larger yachts (over 50m) are limited, however, with plenty of safe and tranquil anchorage spots to choose from amongst the numerous islands, islets, and reefs around this Adriatic hotspot you will be spoilt for choice.

Sailing Yacht Charters in Croatia

The Adriatic enjoys an average of 315 cloudless days a year, and with winds in Croatia generally around 10-20 knots, this can make chartering a sailing yacht a great option to explore the picturesque islands and secluded beaches at your leisure. The winds do tend to get stronger in the fall, so bear this in mind when booking your charter. 

There should be ample sailing yachts, gulets (traditional wooden yachts), and catamarans for charter in Croatia, but we do recommend booking early to secure your perfect yacht and desired itinerary. 

Gulet Charters in Croatia

Gulets are traditional wooden boats originating from Turkey, but are now widely available throughout Croatia and Greece. These types of boats offer a fantastic and cost-effective alternative to a luxury charter yacht, for those wishing to spend a bit less but still enjoy a fabulous yacht charter in the Mediterranean

With so many options available, there’s something to suit every type of budget in Croatia. The average prices for motor yacht and sailing yacht charters in Croatia are as follows;

  • For motor yacht rentals in Croatia, prices can range from $32,000 to $1,8m per week plus expenses
  • For luxury sailing yacht rentals in Croatia, prices can go from $32,363 to $582,882 weekly plus expenses

When is the Best Time for Croatia Yacht Charters?

The optimal times for yacht charters in Croatia’s sapphire-hued waters span from May till October. During this time, you can benefit from calmer seas, reliably clement weather, and warm swimming temperatures. Croatia’s peak season is July and August, so expect both higher charter fees and packed marinas in these months.

Where Should I Begin My Yacht Charter in Croatia?

There are a variety of options, although most yachts charters tend to begin in Dubrovnik or Split in the Dalmatia region, both of which have major international transport links. Another popular option is to set off from Italy or Montenegro and then cruise the Adriatic down towards the Kornati archipelago or along the Dalmatia region – encompassing 233 miles of coastline stretching from Krk to Lastovo.

Croatia has numerous must-see destinations and you will be hard-pushed to fit them all in. For itineraries along the southern Dalmatian coast, some yachts may spend a day in port in Dubrovnik – ‘the pearl of the Adriatic’ – before setting off for the picturesque surrounding archipelagos, which include the popular island destinations of Hvar, Mljet, Vis, and Brač. You can either finish your yacht charter back in Dubrovnik or continue on to finish up in Split – the cultural and economic center of Dalmatia. 

For yacht charters in the north of Croatia, many like to begin in Venice or Bari, located in Italy’s Puglia (or Apulia) region, before crossing the Adriatic to Croatia's Istria region. From here you can explore the popular island of Pula, with its world-class Roman amphitheater, before cruising down towards Zadar and the Kornati National Park.

Alternatively, you can begin in Porto Montenegro – only an hour’s drive from Dubrovnik – although you may have to cover the cost of repositioning as many luxury charter yachts in Croatia are based in Split.

It’s simple enough to begin your superyacht vacation in a neighboring country before heading to Croatia. For more advice please speak to your yacht charter broker.

Where to End a Croatia Yacht Charter

We recommend finishing your luxury charter in Split, Croatia's second-largest city and one of the most popular superyacht hotspots on the Adriatic. Renowned for its pristine beaches and crystalline waters, plus with a vibrant mix of things to see and do, you'll be in for a treat.

Where to Find a Yacht Slip in Croatia

There are hundreds of harbors, marinas, and ports in Croatia, so whether stopping off in Dubrovnik or sailing to the far side of the Lastovo Archipelago National Park there are sure to be facilities or an anchorage to suit your needs.

Popular Marinas in Croatia

There are 56 official marinas along the Croatian coast from Umag to Dubrovnik.

One of the most popular jumping-off points is Dubrovnik, which boasts several marinas, the largest of which is ACI Marina Dubrovnik, located within a short distance to Dubrovnik’s historic old town. It has 380 slips and can accommodate yachts up to 60m/196ft. For larger yachts, or yachts not requiring a slip, another popular option is to utilize the international cruise ship terminal quay, which is happy to facilitate yacht charter pick-ups and drop-offs.

For a stop off at one of the many island destinations on your yacht charter, we recommend ACI Marina Korčula (max length 40m/131ft) and Lumbarda Marina (max length 25m/82ft) – both on Korčula, and ACI Marina Vrboska in Hvar (max length 30m/98ft).

If you're struggling to find a slip in the summer, we also recommend Cavtat Marina (max length 60m/197ft) located to the south of Dubrovnik, which has 119 berths and enjoys good shelter from all winds.

Some of the best ports in Croatia are also located in the Istria region in northern Croatia. We recommend D-Marin Dalmacija, located a few kilometers south of the ancient city of Zadar, which is the largest marina in Croatia with 1,200 berths and can accommodate yachts up to 80m LOA. Also in the region are ACI Marina Rovinj (max length 25m/82ft) and Marina Funtana (max length 20m/65ft). 

Large Superyacht Berths

For larger berths in the Split-Dalmatia region:

  • ACI Marina Split: 350 slips and can accommodate superyachts of up to 90m/295ft LOA
  • Marina Kastela – just 7km up the coast from Split – which can accommodate superyachts of up 150m/492ft in length, with a draft of 8m.
  • D-Marin Mandalina in the city of Šibenik, situated between two National Parks within a protected lagoon, boasting 429 slips. It has also been specially developed to accommodate yachts of up to 140m/459ft LOA. 

How to Book Your Yacht Charter in Croatia

Dubrovnik's glittering blue waters and old port

With its rich cultural and architectural history, along with lush national parks and secluded beaches, Croatia is fast becoming one of our most popular destinations. Therefore, we advise you to book your yacht charter well in advance of your trip to secure your perfect yacht on your preferred dates.

If you leave it too late, the selection of yachts at your disposal will be reduced and you may not be able to explore the destinations you have your heart set on. Plus, finding dates when everyone in your charter party is available can be tricky; the longer you leave it, the more challenging it will be. 

Your yacht charter broker will also need plenty of time to tailor an itinerary to suit you, and enough time to book ahead for the nights you wish to spend in marinas. We recommend booking up to 3 months in advance to give your broker the optimum time to organise everything down to the last detail.

Croatia Yacht Charter Q&A

  • Q.
    What do I need to consider before booking a Croatia yacht charter?
    A.

    Some important things to consider before booking your yacht;

    • Yachts tend to spend more time at anchor in Croatia, so you need to consider that when choosing your perfect yacht. Ideally, find a yacht that is comfortable with ample leisure and entertainment facilities onboard. 
    • Avoid heading into Dubrovnik when the big cruise ships are in town, these vessels can hold some 3,000 passengers and the town can become uncomfortably crowded.
    • You should also be aware that certain zones in Croatia's waters forbid fishing or diving, or require special permissions to do so. This is something you can discuss with your yacht broker, or yacht captain when deciding on your itinerary.
  • Q.
    How much does it cost to charter a yacht in Croatia?
    A.

    There should be a wide selection of yachts to choose from, so there is sure to be something that suits both you and your budget.

    Croatian Gulets, traditional wooden yachts with wide beams that offer spacious deck areas and generous accommodation, are a fantastic and cost-effective alternative to a luxury charter yacht. Gulets are available to charter for around €13,500-€15,000 per week, which usually includes food and up to 4 hours cruising per day.

    Gulets are also perfect for family charters, or those who simply enjoy spending their time out on deck soaking up the beautiful surroundings of this stunning region.

  • Q.
    When is the best time to visit Croatia by yacht?
    A.

    The perfect time for yacht charters in Croatia is between May to October, with average temperatures in the mid to high 20s, calm sapphire seas and endless days of glorious sunshine.

    You should note that Croatia's peak season is in July and August, so expect both higher charter fees and crowded marinas during these months.

  • Q.
    Where do I begin a Croatia yacht charter?
    A.

    Most charters tend to begin in the beautiful historic towns of Dubrovnik or Split before continuing on to the celebrated islands of Hvar, Mljet, Vis and Brač. Alternatively, you can begin in Montenegro in the south, but you should note there may be additional re-positioning fees to pay as most yachts are based out of Split.

    Another option is to begin your yacht charter in Venice, Italy then cross the Adriatic to Croatia's breathtaking northern region before cruising down the coast to Zadar or Split.

  • Q.
    What do I need to secure a yacht in Croatia?
    A.

    Once you have decided on your perfect yacht, your yacht broker will then draw up the necessary contract; a legally binding agreement between you and the owner of the yacht. At this point, based on the type of contract, you will be required to pay 50% of the cost of the yacht up front, with an additional 25-30% of this base rate to cover additional expenses you and your guests are expected to incur whilst on charter.
