Why Croatia Yacht Charter on a Motor Yacht?
Compared to sailboats or catamarans, motor yachts have a shallower draft, which allows them to enter smaller and shallower inlets. They are comfortable, spacious, nicely furnished, well-equipped, and most importantly-fastest on the sea. In our experience, A luxury yacht charter in Croatia on a motor yacht is the best way to explore the wonders of the country’s major island chains and the natural beauty of Croatia’s coastline.
Croatia yacht charter itinerary includes island hopping comparable to the “Caribbean” quality, which often lasts 8 days and 7 nights. So, crewed motor yacht charters offer private yachting experience and with it, you can visit many places in little time; if you find yourself in a port you don’t particularly like, you can simply anchor somewhere else in a short period. Speed not only gives our private yacht charter clients the freedom of movement but also excitement and pleasure while cruising at top speed and hopping the hot spots of the Croatian coastline.
Motor yachts have “grown” in size in recent years so our top-tier luxury motor yachts are now able to accommodate a large group of guests as well as state-of-the-art amenities and comforts that were seldom found a few years back, such as a variety of water toys, jetskis, open-air jacuzzis and more. Larger motor yachts use a considerably larger amount of fuel and can cost higher compared to other types of yachts (sail or catamaran). So few of our smaller group clients opt for smaller motor yachts without exhausting their budget. The smaller crewed motor yachts are not as comfortable or rich in amenities as larger models, but they can still take you across the Croatian coastline at speed.

Where to go with a motor yacht charter in Croatia?
Croatia is known as “The Land of 1000 Islands”, as the sea off the country has, indeed, over one thousand islands, only about 50 of which are inhabited. Few of our guests quote it as “a paradise of unspoiled landscapes” due to its pristine beaches and anchorages, picturesque coves, and crystal-clear waters. As well as the islands, the Dalmatian coast on the Croatian mainland offers some of the locations featured in the popular “Game of Thrones” TV show and the James Bond movies, as well as UNESCO World Heritage sites and world-famous scuba diving and snorkeling spots. A few of these spots include Blue Cave (in Biševo Island), Kornati Islands ( variety of marine life, including dolphins, sea turtles, and colorful fish), and Velebit Channel– popular among experienced divers due to its strong currents and abundance of marine life.
WHERE TO START A MOTOR YACHT CHARTER IN CROATIA?
A typical Croatia yacht charter will start at Split International Airport from the southern Dalmatian coast. Most of the marinas lay on the West of the city of Split, a very short distance from the airport. Marina Baotić, Marina Agana, and ACI Marina Trogir are charter specialized marinas. There are as many itinerary suggestions as there are motor yacht charters available at these marinas.
The Kornati Archipelago (home of the Kornati National Park), off the coast of Croatia in the Adriatic Sea, is one of the densest island clusters in the Mediterranean, consisting of over 150 islands, most of them very small and very close to one another. All distances are short and there is always a protected cove or bay nearby to provide shelter in case of a sudden summer storm. It has to be noted that to visit the Kornati National Park, every visitor needs to obtain a ticket in advance for the particular time and duration of the visit. Tickets can be purchased online and at mobile reception desks at key points of the park, and their price can range from 20 euros to several thousand, depending on boat size. Almost all the straits and routes are protected from most winds, making this a pleasurable, relaxed sail within a Marine Park with a lot of fish, marine mammals, and bird life. Well worth visiting is Kornat itself, the largest island in the cluster with no permanent settlements and no more than 20 inhabitants at high season!
Mainland Croatia also has a lot to offer, among which the medieval city of Dubrovnik, Trogir, a UNESCO World Heritage site, which, for reasons that will become obvious at first sight, is also called the Little Venice of Dalmatia. Cosmopolitan, colorful Split has a rich history and culture, boasting of over 20 museums and galleries popular among our yacht charter guests.
