Comparable to a British Virgin Island charter and a French Riviera yacht charter destination, a yacht charter Croatia is a mix of great fun ashore, deep culture and island hopping. Let’s take a look at some of the places you can visit on yourluxury yacht charter Croatia.
There are seven broad yacht charter destinations you can enjoy on a Croatia yacht sailing holiday. Let’s take a look at them below, from north to south.
The ancient town of Pula is the centre of the fun for sailing types in this region of Croatia. On the west coast of the Istrian Peninsula it has an amphitheatre built by the Romans that is used for outdoor music festivals to this day.
Just to the south of Pula is the Medulin Riviera, which sits on a large natural harbour. With its calm waters and small islands, this is a nice location to enjoy time on a sandy beach and relax.
Further to the east, you will find towns like Opatija, which is the nearest you will find comparable with the French Riviera. It has beautiful old buildings, boutiques and restaurants that combine to make for a wonderful yacht charter destination.
With Krk (the largest Croatian island), the northern Croatian islands have among them the oldest marina on the Adriatic Sea. You will discover delightful old towns and island life that has welcomed tourists as far back as Ancient Greek times. The sailing is fun, and from excellent restaurants to a Yugoslav-era penal island there is a great variety of things to enjoy here.
Sailing south down the Dalmatian coast you will soon hit the bustling city of Zadar in Northern Dalmatia. This is one of three decent sized cities on the Croatian Adriatic and has lots to offer from excellent hotels to a nightlife that rivals any on the Adriatic Sea.
Just offshore lies the Zadar Archipelago, a group of small Dalmatian islands that are an opportunity for a rest from the buzz of Zadar itself.
Another place to relax is the Krka National Park to the south of Zadar. With its brackish water lake and waterfalls and its inland marina capable of taking even larger yachts, Krka National Park is another worthy Croatia yacht holiday destination.
Widely held as the most beautiful Croatian Islands of all, the Kornati National Park should be visited on any Croatia yacht charter. Lying SE of Zadar, with its lakes, supreme underwater life and geology on land and underwater, it may even be worth staying for a couple of days to enjoy the islands to their utmost. To add to this, you will find some of the best restaurants on the Adriatic here too!
South again along the Croatian coast on your luxury motor yacht or sailing yacht, you will soon land at the historic city of Split. Thanks to its beauty, both sides of the Croatian War of Independence in the 1990s agreed not to shell it into ruins as happened with so many other cities. In the Old Town you will discover Diocletian’s Palace, the Roman Emperor’s retirement home intact after over 2,000 years.
Off the coast of Split you will reach Hvar Island on your sailing holiday. Hvar Town is widely accepted as the best place for the elites of the world to let their hair down in Europe. Hvar Town has many decent facilities from top end night clubs that rival the Balearic Islands to quality dining and boutiques and restaurants that serve your every need.
Home of the Ragusan Empire that was a significant Mediterranean trading empire in days of old, Dubrovnik is renowned for its Old Town that, though in a large part reconstructed after the War of Independence, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site for the importance of its architecture.
Marco Polo is supposed to have been born further to the north on the island of Korcula, prior to his well documented world travels. Korcula is now a laid back, beautiful island that in many ways is unchanged even from when the young adventurer was born there.
Just to the south of Dubrovnik and leaving the Croatian coast for Montenegro, you will reach the protected harbour of the Bay of Kotor. Porto Montenegro is a holiday resort for the well-to-do and built to rival the French Riviera as a sailing destination. Capable of taking the largest yachts afloat and with facilities that will meet the highest expectations, the development is a rival to the Porto Cervo on the Costa Smeralda or for those visiting the Aeolian Islands, Portorosa on Sicily.

Whether sailing yachts or power catamarans, these have a wide beam and shallow draft and make for spacious and comfortable luxury yachts. Even the smaller vessels (15m LOA and up) will have en suite heads in the cabin, and can often carry water toys like jet skis and paddleboards aboard. You can have a crewed catamaran charter or bareboat charter depending on the size of vessel and what you want from a yacht charter vacation.
From a catamaran to a luxury motor yacht charter these are faster and often have far more space. Expect a more comfortable, premium experience on motor yacht, ranging from a mini cruiser to top end superyacht charter vessels. You can have crewed yacht charter or bareboat charter depending on the size of vessel with the skipper and crew looking after you.
The larger crewed yachts are often available on a corporate yacht charter or private yacht charter basis as a means of escaping to an out of the way place without distraction. A luxury charter yacht like this will have water toys such as a speed boat, jet ski and diving equipment so you can enjoy water sports even without having to go ashore.
Whether a classic racing yacht or more modern cruiser racer sailing yacht, these sleek, stylish and more traditional sailboats still have the space you need but can sail in near silence with just the sound of the wind and waves as you move along under wind power alone. These can come as something smaller or a 30 metre plus private luxury charter yacht too with water toys and a skipper and crew looking after you on your bespoke yacht charter.
Luxury yacht charters are best when augmented by great weather. The perfect time for a premium charter in Croatia are:
April and May
Expect occasional rainy days but temperatures between 22-28C and up. Winds will be NW, 10-20kts
Very little rain if any. Temperatures from 26C and up to the mid 30s. Wind NW 10-20kts
It rains more in October and the temperature falls away to 10 degrees C as a minimum, though it can get up to 20C on an autumn day. Winds can get up to 20kts
When to Visit Croatia
If you want to get involved in a major sailing event, Split’s annual Mrduja Sailing Regatta out of ACI Marina Split attracts top sailors from around the world in October every year.

For those who like a quieter sailing experience, perhaps visit in September or October? The waters are still warm, but the villages and towns quieter. You may find some of the key bars and restaurants have closed though.
