Yacht Charter and Boat Rentals in Seget Donji

Seget Donji was founded in 1564 when the Croat government of the time needed a castle to defend the residents of nearby Trogir in Central Dalmatia from attacks by the Ottoman Empire. The castle wasn't just for soldiers and aristocracy - it was there for the people to live in.

The village has grown through the years and while the castle remains a lovely place to hide from the summer heat while exploring the Croatian Adriatic town of Seget Donji which is now part of a larger conurbation that has merged with Trogir.

While in the town, do take a walk up the coast on a local walking route that takes in the coastline and has some beautiful views of the Adriatic Sea. The small islet of Trogir is close-by too, and is well worth a wander through its narrow streets.

7 days

Seget Donji and Dalmatia circular: Explore the Adriatic coast on your sailing trip, taking in towns like Skradin before heading out to the southern Kornati Islands and their national park. This is an opportunity to explore the coast and villages of Dalmatia on your catamaran, motorboat or sailboat. Many Croatian yacht charter routes head straight for the islands but this route takes in some of the mainlands, giving you a chance to meet locals and see what Croatia is about.

Seget Donji to Dubrovnik one way: At just over 140nm end to end this is an opportunity to idle in bars and wander in national parks while seeing two of Croatia's most beautiful towns. If you can plan a half-day ashore, do plan a half-day on Korcula Island or the beach resort of Hvar Town. The Pakleti islands have secluded coves and are worth a pause in a lagoon or two as you go.

14 days

Seget Donji to Dubrovnik circular: Some routes head out to Vis Island as a first stop and take in the offshore route out before coming back inshore of the islands on return. Doing no more than 22nm a day you can enjoy the sailing and venture ashore to various Dalmatian island towns and explore inland as you go.

Seget Donji to Zadar circular: Heading north out of Trogir you can explore the coastline of Croatia and perhaps stop off on the Kornati Islands as you go. These are some of the greatest natural wonders of the Adriatic with a saltwater inland lake and deep forest to explore. You will have to coast hop as you head north - seeing what mainland Croatia has on offer in places like Biograd, the medieval capital of Croatia.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I consider when renting a boat?

The main points to consider are what is your budget, have you got the necessary sailing experience and qualifications to manage the boat if it's not going to have a skipper, whom you are taking sailing, where exactly you wish to go and what will the weather be like on the proposed dates of your trip.

Do you have to pay a deposit when renting a boat?

​You will typically pay 50% up front on booking the yacht hire and the balance on arrival. You will either pay a security deposit with your credit card on departure or can get insurance covering damage in advance. In some cases (such as the recent Covid situation) charter companies may be more flexible but this depends on the individual charter companies themselves.

What happens if my boat breaks down?

If you are at sea and in danger, call MAYDAY on VHF Ch16 or ring the coast guard on your phone if you have reception. If you have a mechanical fault and can make it to or are on a mooring you will be able to phone a help line number given by the boat charter company.

What should I think of before I rent a boat?

You should consider do you have the experience to handle the yacht charter or boat rental before you book and where do you want to go along with what the weather will be like. Bring warm weather and cool weather clothing if it looks like the weather can be cool as well as warm and remember at sea it can be cool on most evenings.

What qualifications do I need to rent a boat?

If you want to sail without a captain then you will need relevant qualifications like RYA Day Skipper/International Certificate of Competence (ICC)/ASA 104 Bareboat certificate or the US Sailing Certificate. For small 'day boats' or if you choose to have a skippered on board your yacht charter you typically don't require licences.
