Elan charter in Croatia?

I'm hoping to charter an Elan Impression (anything >/= 45') in the Med. Croatia came to mind as there are loads of Elan's for sale there and we are thinking of buying one... It's just nearly impossible to tell condition/sailability via Yachtworld, so we're just going to fly over and spend a week (maybe more) on one to see for ourselves. Having said that, as an US resident-- are the credentialing requirements different than the BVI? We have plenty of experience, but don't know what they may require.


Specifically, which companies would you suggest (and/or avoid)?

We chartered an Elan 45 Impression ("Maui" https://www.croatiayachtclub.com/elan-45-trogir-3) from Croatia Yacht Club out of Trogir in 2017. Excellent boat and charter company. We loved the boat and are now in the market for an Impression of our own, albeit smaller.

You will need an ICC or IPC or the right ASA qualifications in Croatia AND a radio licence. The charter company will be able to advise or check http://www.mppi.hr/UserDocsImages/TA...%29%203_11.pdf

We have also had good experiences with Ultra and Dream Yacht in Croatia, but not sure they have any Elans. We are chartering an Elan 384 with Master Yachting later this year (from Sukosan) and although we haven't chartered with them before they come highly recommended and have a number of Elan's in their fleet.

Good luck! We know Croatia extensively and have also done a lot of research into Elans if we can be of any help!
