Chartering in Croatia?

Hi all,

We are looking at chartering (probably a big cat for 6 plus cook) in Croatia next year. Would like advice on:
1. best location
Split?
Dubrovnic?
One way?
2. Good and/or bad charter companies?

I have looked at the Croatia-related threads here but don't see much regarding charting, so would love to hear from people with real experience there.

Thanks!

Either city is a perfect starting point, with the best islands to see just short day hops. You're going to have a great time!

Dubrovnic...…... Dubrovnik with K, that aside I would go for Split, much more islands near by. Dubrovnik area, nothing special. apart Dubrovnik itself and Cavtat nothing else worth mentioning. there is so called Elaphite (Elafiti) islands, 5 of them and Island of Mljet but nothing special.

Personally, I would go one way. From Split to Dubrovnik.

Especially because prevailing wind during the day , Maestral (Croatian) or Mistral (NW) .

Re: Chartering in Croatia?

Hi,
Based on my experience is one way trip the best you can get. The area from Split to Dubrovnik excellent part of Adriatic but it is a ditance in between them. Depends if you are charterin one week or more. For one week is one way the best option but I'm not sure you'll be able to find anybody offering this in Croatia especially in high season. It is almost a standard to return a charter boat the same location.
If you are stick with that situation I would suggest you Split, there are mo options around Split for a week or 2 sailing.
For one way charter you may try Ultra Sailing they are based in Split & Trogir (both nearby the airport) but they have a branch in Dubrovnik too. You can try to talk to them directly. Based on my experience they might be flexible enough to manage that for you. I use their services for more than 4 years and it always worked very well.
Enjoy your trip

Trogir, near split has lots of charter companies. Look at Waypoint charters.
