- Which type of yachting to choose ?
Be a master of your own vessel; get the freedom
of bare boating and exploring and creating your
own itinerary. If you have all necessary skills
to sail and that you can read charts and
navigate this is just the best possible choice
for you. This is most popular category of yacht
rentals in Croatia.
The leading person need to have enough
navigational skills and to posses a valid boat
license to navigate at the open sea and the
radio communication license as well.
As the skipper, you will be responsible of
keeping and sailing of the boat, and of your
In case that you are not competent to drive the
boat we will offer you a skipper service.
This is good solution if you do not feel sure
enough in your navigational skills; or if you
are discovering a new sail area and feel the
need to have a guide for your vacation. In this
case you add a skipper as part of the cruise.
Adriaticum Charter will choose and provide the
skipper for your holiday and charge for that an
extra service. You are also responsible to
provide the food and drink to the skipper.
Cruising itinerary you can make alone or leave
it that the skipper make you some suggestions.
On some boats is important that skipper have his
own cabin to sleep.
Let your Croatia sailing adventure begin! In
this solution the yachts come with a captain,
sailor or hostess and cook/chef. You can decide
between excitement, lots of activity or pure
relaxation. It can be a combination of these.

other vessels. They have also more extra

When is the best time to rent a boat in
For sailing Croatia is ideal from late March to
mid July and then from September to early
November. July and August are very busy on the
Adriatic, both on the coastal roads necessary to
get to the marinas and on the Adriatic Sea
itself. Weather-wise (or more appropriately
wind-wise) late July and August aren't the best
choice. Just before and after that, however, you
can count on just the right wind for good
sailing. If sailing in the winter be sure that
you are chartering a boat with a heating system
as blankets will not be enough from November to
March. Normally you can swim in the sea from mid
May to late September.
For those not interested primarily in sailing,
May to September is an ideal time to visit
Croatia. July and September are probably the
best since at that time you are unlikely to be
surrounded by crowds of other visitors. The
weather is beautiful, and warm enough to enjoy

- Sailing Holidays
The Croatian coastline is perfect for sailing
holidays. With so many islands and ports, you
can stop as many times as you like or sail for
as long you wish. With over 1,000 islands,
sailing holidays can provide an excellent way of
seeing some of the smaller (perhaps even
uninhabited!) islands that would otherwise be
difficult to visit with scheduled ferry lines.
Such holidays can be considered to be more
"hands-on" than your usual holiday, although
everyone from beginners to more experienced
sailors can find something suitable. Visit
Sailing holidays generally either consist of a
course or the chartering of a boat, with or
without a skipper. Courses can range from
beginner level through to those wishing to brush
up their skills (and where better to do that
than through the beautiful Croatian Adriatic
waters and islands?) at intermediate or advanced
If chartering a boat takes your fancy, there are
plenty of options open to you - everything from
small motorboats to make short trips to local
islands, to large, luxury yachts where the sky
may very well be the limit - at least in terms
of price! If you do go down the chartering
route, remember to consider marina facilities
and fees; some information can be obtained from
Adriatic Club Croatia, which runs 21 marinas on
the Croatian coastline.
Regardless of whether you're participating on a
course or are renting a yacht, it is important
to establish if you would prefer to go for a
standard, all-inclusive holiday package, or a
more tailor-made option.
