Sailboat Hire in Croatia

With a plethora of islands and white sand beaches, it’s no wonder that Croatia has become one of the most popular sailing destinations in Europe. Although visiting this charming country is always a treat, you get a completely different experience when hiring a sailboat that is completely unmissable. From the sea, you can travel to all the coastal regions twice as quickly, as well as trying out a wide variety of new and exciting water sports. Whether you decide to hire with or without a skipper, the sky’s the limit.

How much does a Croatia sailing charter cost?

Sailing holidays in Croatia vary greatly in cost depending on several different things. A few factors that can influence price are the size of the boat, the season, how long your trip is, and the make of the boat. In general, costs will start at around £385 per week during the low season and rise up to at least £804 per week during the high season.

Is a bareboat charter in Croatia possible for sailboats?

Yes, it is possible to rent a sailboat either with or without a skipper in Croatia but you must check the laws regarding boat licences before you go as they are quite strict. In Croatia, three different types of boating licence exist and each one qualifies you to drive different types of boat, and often affects the amount of passengers you can take with you, so it’s imperative you do a lot of research in order to avoid breaking the law.

Renting a sailboat with a skipper is best for those who aren’t confident when it comes to sailing, or who don’t possess the correct licences. Renting a sailboat without a skipper, however, is better for those who have a thirst for adventure as well as an adequate amount of sailing experience, because it allows you to sail the seas unrestrained by the demands and recommendations of your skipper.

What are the weather and sailing conditions like in Croatia?

The climate in Croatia is a Mediterranean one, and as such, receives around 2600 hours of sunshine per year. In the summer, sea and air temperatures are ideal for those who like to spend a lot of time in the water, with sea temperatures ranging from 24-27°C, and air temperatures peaking at 28°C in July. While this heat may seem a little intense, the Maestral winds help to make it a little more bearable. January is the coldest month, with temperatures usually staying around 7°C.

When is the best time to go sailing in Croatia?

People usually prefer to go sailing from late June until August in Croatia as it is during this period that the air and water temperatures are at their peak. However, there are some who complain that during these months, there are too many tourists and the price of sailboat hire is too high. If you’re also someone who doesn’t like crowds, you should go in May or September when the number of tourists is fewer. The only drawback of this time period is that it does get dark extremely quickly and quite early during these months. For this reason, you should thoroughly research sunset times in order to ensure that you don’t find yourself taking unnecessary risks after dark.
