The beautiful country of Croatia is perhaps one of the most sought-after European destinations for a sailing holiday, and with good reason! This Adriatic pearl is home to over 1000 islands and stunning landscapes decorated with sandy beaches, rugged mountain terrain and dense forests. There are so many places to see and with a yacht charter in Croatia, you can see them all. Cruise through the Dalmatia region and see Split, Croatia’s second-largest city as well as neighbouring islands like Brač, Hvar, Lastovo, Trogir and Vis. Game of Thrones fans will find themselves fawning over the medieval city of Dubrovnik, much of which has been featured in the famous series.
But Croatia is so much more than just Dalmatia! Istria, in the north, despite being a lesser-known region, has a wealth of riches for you to witness. Explore the Brijuni Islands and discover the beautiful Roman remains of Pula, Poreč or Rovinj. The Istrian peninsula is just opposite Venice and if you have time, you could even go there! With a yacht charter in Croatia, the possibilities are endless, what are you waiting for? Plan your sailing escape in Croatia and have the holiday of a lifetime.

There is so much cultural and natural beauty to see in Croatia which makes planning a trip there so difficult, because it can be hard to narrow it down! But not to worry, here is a list of some of our favourite things to do while on a yacht charter in Croatia.
The best time to seek a boat rental in Croatia is between May and September when you’ll have warm temperatures and little to no precipitation. For the hottest weather, you should visit in July when you’ll have highs of 27°C. However, be aware that the prices of yacht charters at this time will be very high, since it is the high season, and crowds will also be quite dense. To avoid larger crowds and save some money, we recommend visiting at the tail ends of the high tourist season, such as in May or September.
However, if you have little sailing experience, we suggest sailing in the summer when the westerly breeze, the Bora, blows strongly enough to move your vessel but also remains calm enough to allow you to relax, swim and have a unique holiday. During the balmy summer nights, you can even sleep on the terrace instead of in the cabins and enjoy the breeze and the view!
If you don’t have a sailing licence but you’re looking to embark on a sailing holiday, you can! At Click&Boat we have a large fleet of yacht charters in Croatia with and without a skipper on board, so you can sail the way you want to. Even if you have a sailing licence, there are many benefits to chartering a skippered vessel. Skippers are nautical experts that handle everything out on the water, and help you tick off the sights on your itinerary. The best part about having a skipper on board is getting the opportunity to connect with a local who can give you advice about where to go and what to do while in Croatia. If you’re lucky, they might even show you a few things about sailing and let you take the helm! It’s true that a boat rental with a skipper is typically more expensive than one without, but the extra cost is well worth it for a personalised sailing getaway. What are you waiting for? Charter a skippered vessel in Croatia, and get ready for the experience of a lifetime.
Having trouble deciding which type of yacht to charter in Croatia? First, you should think about the length of time you plan to spend on board. If you only want to sail for a few days, we recommend a daily charter such as a motorboat or a RIB, which will go fast and allow you to see everything you want in no time. If you plan to spend a longer time on the water, we recommend choosing a yacht or a catamaran which can be rented by the week and includes all of the amenities on board that you’ll need for a pleasant stay. Avid sailors might be keen on chartering a sailboat, which will certainly give you an authentic sailing experience, but they aren’t recommended if you get seasick easily!
