Category — Croatia Yacht Charter
Croatia Yacht Charters is a bareboat sailing adventure along the beautiful ancient Dalmatian Coast; home to Ulysses and the Avant and some of the best sailing in the world. Croatia and sailing are synonymous. We stopped at charming anchorages amid rocky islets, at ancient Croatian villages steeped in history, and in translucent waters. We stepped back in history within the beautiful walled cities, among the gorgeous agriculture and history that is part of your soul.
A Perfect Croatia Charter Focuses on the Islands and Ancient Villages on the Mainland between Togir and Dubrovnik.
There are more than 30 islands starting off the central Dalmatian Coast near the city of Split. We cruised Togir, Solta, Hvar, Vis, (home for Tito for 20 years), Brac, Mljet (where it is fabled that the Cyclopes captured and held Odysseus for 7 year), beautiful Korcula (home of Marco Polo), Lastovo, and the fabulous harbors and coves along the rugged Peljesac Peninsula and the nearby Elafiti Islands. Make sure you stop by our friend Mike Gregic's newest vineyard opened recently back in the country of his birth.
We Choose from Hundreds of Beautiful Anchorages, City Quays and Marinas
Many of the major destinations along our route have ACI Marinas that offer water, electricity, shower facilities and a laundry and range from 50 Kuna to 159 Euro per night and often well worth it. The Dalmatian Islands in Croatia are among the most famous in the Mediterranean region. Dubrovnik is the crown jewel of this sailing adventure. We stayed few days after our charter to explore this beautiful city with walls that are over 1000 years old. The walled city of Dubrovnik had never been captured in all of history. The longest siege the city withstood was 15 months. It was bombed during the 90’s conflict and has been beautifully restored. The only evidence of the fighting are a few bullet holes you can still see in some of the buildings if you look hard. The pristine beaches, lively nightlife, fine cuisine, fascinating historic sites, and unspoiled natural beauty make a Dubrovnik and the Dalmatian Coast an unforgettable sailing adventure. This part of the Med has the cleanest and most beautiful waters of all because in the last 60 years there has been little industry along its beautiful coastline.
Why visit the Republic of Croatia?
This fascinating country situated on the Adriatic Sea; originally part of Italy and east of Italy today. Besides it’s varied and diverse cruising grounds, the food of Croatia is wonderful - the fresh catch’s of the day, great Mediterranean salads and very Italian pizzas. It’s warm and hospitable people host morning open air markets everywhere; with very fresh vegetables, fruits, cheese and spices. The vegetables and fruit were the best I have ever had; I suspect they come from the local villager’s gardens. English is spoken frequently and it is easy to communicate requests or talk to the locals in Croatia compared to 22 years ago when I was last there.
