? 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!
