Motor Yachts

Croatia Motor Yacht Charters – Largest Selection of Motor Yachts

In recent years, we have seen our clients favoring larger motor yachts for their Croatia yacht charter. Responding to this demand, our Croatia motor yachts have notably increased in size.

Our top-tier vessels can now comfortably accommodate larger groups while offering first-class amenities and comforts that were seldom found on yachts a few years back.

If you are planning a Croatia luxury yacht charter, a motor yacht will allow you to make the most of your itinerary, taking you to Croatia’s top charter destinations.

– Set off from Dubrovnik, Split, Sibenik, or Zadar and prepare for an exceptional charter vacation on the stunning Dalmatian coast. Enjoy beautiful National Parks, great water activities and the historic cities and UNESCO World Heritage Sites of the Croatian Riviera.

Why Charter a Motor Yacht for Your Croatian Yach Charter Vacation?

Croatian yacht charter itineraries include island hopping comparable to the  “Caribbean”, commonly lasting 8 days and 7 nights. The efficiency of a crewed motor yacht charter grants you the ultimate freedom.

Not only can you fit more into your itinerary, but if you find yourself in a port you don’t particularly like, you can simply pull up anchor and get somewhere better in a short time.

Enjoy the cruise on your private yacht at top speed when exploring the hotspots of the Croatian coast and Islands.

Additionally, unlike other popular yacht charter destinations where docking space is restricted, Croatia allows charter guests the freedom to drop anchor anywhere they want.

For example, right in front of the beaches, granting an exotic experience and allowing direct access to the most pristine swimming locations.

Croatia motor yachts, typically locally owned, are often captained by the owner himself or the owner’s son. This is a huge benefit, guaranteeing a top charter experience based on extensive experience and local knowledge. When you book your Croatia Motor Yacht Charter, you can be sure that you are in the best hands.

The number of crew members depends on the size and price of the charter yacht. Crewed yacht charters in Croatia include, at minimum, a captain and at least 1 stewardess.

On larger yachts, the number of crew can be higher than the number of guests (including engineers, bosun, and additional stewardesses)

Compared to sailing yachts or catamarans, motor yachts have shallower draft, allowing them to enter smaller and shallower inlets, as well as anchoring closer to beaches. They are comfortable, spacious, well-equipped, and most importantly – they are the fastest on the sea.

In our experience, A Croatia luxury yacht charter on a motor yacht is the best way to explore the wonders of the country’s major island chains ensuring you get the most out of your time.

Crewed Motor Yachts for Large Group Charters (12+)

One of our top destinations for large groups charters is Croatia. I you are looking for luxury yachts able to accommodate groups larger than 12 people, or you are looking for more room for the money, Croatia is a great location.

In Croatia, luxury yachts that carry more than 12 people are legally considered passenger ships. Our ‘Large Group Charter Yachts’ are registered to take more than 12 people per charter. (Some of our largest luxury yachts can accommodate 30 – 70 guests.)

Be aware that the crewed yacht charter price ranges significantly. Inquire with your broker to learn about the price of specific yachts.

Old vs New – Save on Fuel Lower Fuel Consumption

In the world of yacht charters, the choice between a new or an older vessel is not merely a matter of aesthetics or initial yacht price; it significantly impacts the overall fuel consumption, consequently the overall cost of your Croatian charter vacation, and the environmental footprint of your maritime journey.

Newer yachts, often equipped with state-of-the-art technologies and engineering advancements, tend to be more fuel-efficient.

Modern engines and design innovations contribute to a smoother, more economical ride through the waves.

While the initial charter cost for a new yacht might be higher, the potential savings in fuel expenses can make it a more sustainable and cost-effective choice in the long run.

Best Time for a Motor Yacht Charter in Croatia

The high season for Croatia yacht charters spans from July and August. This is by far the bussiest time as well as the hottest.

If this does not appeal, you can opt for a pre-season or post-season yacht charter. The Croatian climate is warm enough, with mild winters, too, giving you a bigger window during which to find the perfect crewed yacht for your Croatia yacht charter.

The months of May-June and September-October are quieter and less crowded as far as anchorages and routes are concerned. During this time, the charter rates are considerably cheaper than during the high season, and places are less crowded, especially for popular destinations such as Dubrovnik.

How to Book a Croatia Motor Yacht Charter?

Ideally, you’d inquire about a Croatia motor charter 12 months in advance. WHY? The best motor yachts are often fully booked long in advance and it’s not unusual to see popular dates booked 2 summers ahead for a Croatia yacht charter vacation.

Inquiring less than 6 months ahead often means that your first choice is unavailable for charter. Additionally, you might find that the motor yacht you want can’t make it to the port where you wish to commence your yacht charter.

Where to Go on Your Croatia Yacht Charter?

Croatia is known as “The Land of 1000 Islands” and has over one thousand islands, of which only about 50 are inhabited. Previous clients have referred to it as “a paradise of unspoiled landscapes” due to its pristine beaches and anchorages, picturesque coves, and crystal-clear waters.

In addition to the Dalmatian 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.

Some of the most popular destinations include Blue Cave (on Biševo Island), the Kornati Islands (with a variety of marine life, including dolphins, sea turtles, and colorful fish), and Velebit Channel, which is popular among experienced divers due to its strong currents and abundance of marine life.

This was a trip of a lifetime

This was a trip of a lifetime! We booked with Nadja at DMA yachting and she made sure the entire process was easy and no problems. Our charter was with Zuri3 and our Captain Andre and First Mate Jana made our trip amazing! They made sure everything was taken care and treated us like royalty.

Louis was great from beginning to end and walked me through the whole process. He helped me find a great boat that fit within our time and cost preferences. He explained the differences between the different builds and the pros and cons. Once we selected the boat, he explained and walked me through the whole booking process and answered all my questions. Finally, he checked in with me before, during, and after the charter to make sure everything met our expectations. I can’t recommend Louis enough if you are planning a charter, and I will definitely be in touch for our next trip!
