WHY CHOOSE A YACHT CHARTER IN CROATIA?

Hvar Marina, Croatia

Emerging Luxury Charter Destination

 

Over the last decade, we have seen Croatia completely transform from a post-Communist bareboat destination to a premier luxury yacht charter location.

This transformation has been fueled by significant investments in infrastructure, services, and amenities tailored to the needs of luxury yacht charterers. We now have a Croatian coast full of luxury marinas offering berthing for large vessels, as well as other facilities directed at the luxury charter industry.

Cheaper & Less Crowded

 

One of our biggest emphases on Croatia yacht charters is that it is both cheaper and less crowded compared to other popular yachting destinations in the Mediterranean. While we are seeing prices of luxury motor yachts and catamarans slowly climbing, Croatia still maintains a notable price difference of 15%-25% in most niches, compared to other destinations.

Additionally, we highlight the country’s lower VAT rates on charters, set at just 13% for weekly charters, contribute to its cost-effectiveness.

Allowing Charter Groups of 12-25 Guests

 

Croatia’s legislation is uniquely accommodating to larger groups, allowing us to offer luxury yacht charters and Gulets with 12-25 guests—a rarity within the European Union. The only other destination that allows for group charters of this size is Turkey.

This flexibility opens up opportunities for larger gatherings, whether it be extended family vacations, corporate retreats, or special celebrations, all within the picturesque backdrop of Croatia’s cruising ground.

Croatia,

Over 1000 Islands & many UNESCO Sites

 

With over 1000 islands and a magnificent coastline packed with historical towns, there is no shortage of wonderful anchorages to be explored. Croatia offers opportunities for a wide range of itineraries suiting all kinds of charter vacations whether it be with family, a partner, or a group of friends.

The country is home to several UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including iconic landmarks such as Dubrovnik’s Old Town, Diocletian’s Palace in Split, and the historic city of Trogir.
