winter storage in the Adriatic

Hi
We are trying to plan our 4 weeks starting in Corfu mid Sept. The first week will be in Corfu (or getting to Corfu) then we are keen to head north to Croatia but are a little put off by the reports of it being so expensive and it may be a little cool and unsettled by early oct? We need to find somewhere that is not too expensive to put the boat (13m) up on the hard over winter. It also needs to be somewhere that is reasonably convenient for getting back home to NZ. There is some good info in this forum but any thoughts or advice particularly on where to lay the boat up, would be very welcome.
We had 3 weeks in Peloponnese/Cyclades 2 years ago and loved it.
Thanks
Linda

Re: winter storage in the Adriatic

Well after many many hours of searching the web and at least 20 emailed requests for quotes it seems like there are some reasonably priced options in Monfalcone but only very expensive options in the mid Adriatic and further south. Next reasonable option is in Preveza. We'd still like to find something in between otherwise we'll have to miss out on Croatia, so if anyone has any ideas ....

Re: winter storage in the Adriatic

missing croatia in october is nothing to worry about.

If you like lots of crowd & paying over the top and experience best of croatian hospitality, then july/august.

If you lucky june/sept are still ok. September also lots of fruit. May/october, low chances of nice weather.

How did you get on with storage options?
I am searching for some too and also in NZ.
Cheers

Re: winter storage in the Adriatic

The marina in Dubrovnik river is good, prices ok, proveza is cheaper and Italy is only a day sail from Croatia so Bari is an ok option as well

We use Nausika in Italy. Not the cheapest, but the bestest.

I was there 2 weeks ago and it was 200 euros for 2 days - it would be of course different for off season but thought that was pretty steep - we anchored free 500 m down the river for free..

Yeah Paul, off season is reasonable, or it was when we were there.

Re: winter storage in the Adriatic

September weather in Croatia can be variable: thunderstorms are quite common. Croatia gets a bad rap from the Greek cruisers- it is more expensive than Greece but offers great cruising, clean seas, good food and hundreds of islands to choose from. Seasonal/annual marina contracts bear no relation to overnight costs. We are currently in ACI Dubrovnik marina for an annual berth and the costs are reasonable. they have plenty of dry storage too. Further north check out Kastella Marina near Split, Betina on Murter and Sukosan near Zadar. All three are near airports. You can see more about this on our blog lyrasailing

Re: winter storage in the Adriatic

Ariette - clean seas !!!!!????? Are you kidding???!! I was very disappointed that the water in Croatia isn't being looked after better - floating plastic is widespread let alone other debris- around the towns and foreshore it is obvious that the locals haven't really got looking after their environment as a priority . Even in the marinas ( Murter for example) there was algae growing that could have been easily cleaned up but unfortunately left to spread ... The water itself is beautiful ( clear)

The sea is clear and clean but I agree in the south of the country plastic garbage is a problem. I think that's pretty widespread in the Med these days. Quite a lot of bottles etc are dumped by boaters (we've seen this first hand) and we all need to do better to leave the seas as we find them and hopefully encourage the locals to recycle more and take more care of their environment.

I talked to a local who works in a marina about it - they blamed the Albanians and Montengro saying every time it blows from the south it brings more rubbish up which I can understand - but if you look around a lot of the rubbish originates from the locals - I would be very sceptical about the boaters being the main culprits - all the towns have good rubbish disposal facilities but agree - need to encourage the locals to modify their ways..

Re: winter storage in the Adriatic

You can also check Giulianova (Central Adratic). It is well connected to Rome and its international airport by bus (multiple bus rides every day, also in winter).
Berths are cheap ente porto
There are also many cheap dry-docking possibilities at the various yards.
