Owners Time or other charter Dalmation Coast Sept 2016

Does anyone have sail yacht owner's time not used up we could charter 15th to 22nd September 2016 to sail the Dalmatian Coast. Or is there a sail boat available for charter at that time.
We would consider a skippered yacht also as haven't sailed there before and would like to relax a little. I do own a bareboat charter boat share on the Australian East Coast where I have sailed as well as from PNG

Re: Owners Time or other charter Dalmation Coast Sept 2016

Charters all run Saturday-Saturday. You may be able to bridge the 2 weeks but I doubt you'd get the kind of deal that you're probably looking for.

We were interested in the week 17th-24th September but were persuaded by the dramatic cost reduction for our vessel the week of 24th Sep- 1st Oct. The Hanse 470 was Euro 3,150 full tariff for the week 17-24 Sep and Euro 1,950 for the following week. We therefore took the later week and secured a further discount from the asking price. Just hoping the weather holds out that long....

We used Crobos.com but there are many brokers

Re: Owners Time or other charter Dalmation Coast Sept 2016

Thanks for your feedback Shooze and name of another charter broker as have only found two so far.
I would be interested to know how many people have success with buying Owners Time because I tried to book Owners Time with Sunsail in another area who didnt seem to have any boats available in between season period. And I wonder why would they.
I did find a Bavaria 38 for 1800Euro 17-24 Sept which might have to consider.
Do you know if any charters are available at the southern end of the Dalmatian Coast Dubrovnik way and are the islands similarly developed to the northern end

Re: Owners Time or other charter Dalmation Coast Sept 2016

phalo,

I'm an Aussie like you and this is our first charter in Croatia so I'm definitely no expert but I did do quite a lot of research....

Not so many boats down in Dubrovnik itself but plenty in the Split area (Kastela, Trogir, Rogoznica)

Yacht Charter Croatia - Yacht Base has a pretty good website to show what's available.

We were looking for a 3 cabin boat in the 45-48ft range and the contract for the Hanse 470 was Euro 1,658 so you should be able to pick up a Bavaria 38 for a lot less than Euro 1,800 imo

Some useful information here...
