A Croatia Superyacht Charter
Private luxury yacht chartering around Croatia has become very popular in recent years. It’s now considered to be a prime spot among many yacht charter enthusiasts. The good news is, it’s still possible to get away from it all when in Croatia; mass tourism hasn’t taken over quite yet and a Croatia superyacht charter means privacy, when you want it. There may be plenty of development still going on, however this friendly country located in the Mediterranean still retains the old charm of years gone by.
Croatia is also beginning to place a huge emphasis on its festivals like flowers, music and culture. Combine this with its craggy coastline, stunning beaches and quaint old villages, then you have a superyacht charter vacation filled with history, romance and adventure.
Rely on the superyacht crew
Rely on the crew to take you to special places which you won’t find in the guide books. They will know secluded coves and bays, idyllic locations you can only get to by boat. OK Croatia has many exciting superyacht charter hot spots like Dubrovnik, Hvar and Split but why not let your superyacht friendly crew take you to places of beauty, away from the crowds?
If diving is your thing, then you’re in luck. Croatia has some very special dive sites and wrecks to explore. There are also awesome archaeological dives that you can go on with a master diver or certified diving instructor. When it comes to diving, the good thing about Croatia is that there’s a fantastic mix of dive sites to suit all abilities. There are some places where you can go by yourself and have a great adventure diving, then you’ve got the more controlled diving in specific locations.
Favourite Croatia bays and anchorages
One of the most favourite bays and anchorages in Croatia for your superyacht charter holiday is at the island of Lastovo. Ask your charter broker or Captain for details, but here there’s a small cove with calm, crystal blue waters, perfect for swimming. It’s the ideal place for the chef to prepare a lobster barbecue. The island itself is only accessible by boat so it’s quite secluded.
Onshore there’s a green and lush landscape, ideal for exploring. Just off Hvar you’ve got the Paklenis and in the centre of the island there’s a fabulous restaurant. It’s a bit rustic and serves mouth-watering seafood, a real gem.
Another bay and anchorage where more yachts are going to is Sibenic, near Skradin. You can cruise all the way up the river and then to the spectacular waterfall in a National Park, what a sight. The National Park tenders can be hired privately.
Seasons: The best time of year to Charter a superyacht in Croatia
July and August are the best months for a superyacht charter vacation to Croatia. Travelling in September is also a good option especially if the weather holds. During September, there are less tourist boats so you have the pick of the best spots when it’s not so crowded. You can see places in a different light without so many people being there.
Advice for anyone chartering a yacht for the first time in Croatia
Don’t rush and try to see too much too soon. Doing too much too soon is like being on a tour bus where you don’t really get to appreciate the culture and what Croatia is all about. Croatia’s a big place so, arrange your yacht charter itinerary well in advance with the captain to get the most out of your vacation. The captain and crew will more than likely have many years of yacht charter experience between them. They will know those special places to go to only accessible by boat as well as exciting things to see and visit.
If you’re taking children with you on holiday, think about what they will enjoy. They might not want to learn about the culture so much but would probably love exploring Croatia’s beautiful bays and gorgeous National Parks.
What should guests take with them on a Croatia superyacht charter?
The answer is as little as possible. Superyachts really do have everything you need on board and more. Most guests do tend to over pack which sometimes comes down to lack of communication. A reputable yacht charter broker should be able to put you in the picture in terms of what you need to take with you. Sometimes it can be quite difficult to get it right. The golden rule is, not to pack too much.
The superyacht crew engaging with the guests
Professional and experienced private yacht charter crew will want to engage with their guests as soon as they step onboard, especially the chef and chief stewardess. Trying to get some background information to find out what guests are really like is the key to a successful voyage. Pre-planning and crew meetings go a long way into making a yacht charter trip even more enjoyable for everyone on board.
This will ensure that when guests arrive they feel more comfortable, more quickly, so there’s complete harmony from the beginning. Attentive and dedicated crew will go out of their way to make the right things happen throughout the vacation. Chartering a superyacht to Croatia will certainly be etched in your memory forever.
What is a superyacht?
Superyachts are private motor yachts and sailing yachts which are defined by their size. The term is a fairly loose one and there is no exact measurement which makes one boat a superyacht and another not, however generally a yacht over 80 feet (~ 25 meters) in length can be considered a superyacht. Some consider the very biggest yachts to be mega yachts but once again, there is no exact analysis to this term and its use. One thing is certain, however, and that is all superyachts will need a professional crew to service them. The Mediterranean Sea is the most popular area for superyacht charters and Croatia is among the top destinations for holidays in Europe.
