Boat Rental in Croatia

Croatia is a vacationer’s dream! With so many Croatian islands around the mainland, it is also the perfect place to set off on a luxury yacht charter for a few days or a motorboat ride for a few hours. During your time here, you can lounge around on white-sand beaches, sail along the stunning coastline lined with olive groves, or explore the many national parks.

During your Croatia yacht charter, sail over to Krka National Park and the Kornati National Park, where you can visit the Kornati Islands, the idyllic island paradise. Alternatively, you can take your Croatian boat rental a little further down the coast for some island hopping in the Dalmatian Islands, which are dotted all along the Dalmatian Coast.

Explore Croatia in one of our many yacht rentals and have a memorable sailing experience! Whether you choose to set sail during the high season in July and August, or another, less crowded time of the year, Croatia is always a great idea!

Where to sail in Croatia?

From luxurious Hvar to quiet Lastovo, Croatian islands and the mainland offer an abundance of opportunities to sail around and discover the country from a new perspective. In fact, it is widely known that the best way to fully take advantage of your time in Croatia is by boat. With a private yacht, you’ll be able to move around at your own speed and visit the exact locations you desire.

Choosing which locations to visit during your charter can prove to be a bit overwhelming due to the plethora of options. 

To help you out, we’ve compiled a short list of places we deem unmissable.

  • Kornat – located north of Split, Kornat is the largest of the Kornati archipelago. To get through the national park you will need to purchase a ticket which will give you access to some of the best boating experiences in Croatia. Here you’ll be able to dive into the water from your boat and discover the coral reefs hidden beneath the surface. Make sure to pass by the small family-owned restaurants dotted around the islands.
  • Hvar – on this loved island you’ll find a fancier side to Croatia. Home to high-end hotels and luxurious restaurants, Hvar is definitely the place to go for those looking for a lively night scene. If you’re looking for something a bit quieter, you can head over to Hvar Town where the streets are lined with glassy marbles and gorgeous restaurants.
  • Mljet National Park – located in the southernmost part of the Dalmatian Islands, Mljet offers almost an exclusive and private-feeling experience. Anchor your sailing yacht in Pomena or Polače and spend the day kayaking and sunbathing on the beach.

Other locations that are great to visit during your luxury yacht charter in Croatia are:

  • Šešula Bay
  • Vis Town
  • Skradin
  • Zlarin
  • Lavsa Island
  • Rogoznica

How much does it cost to rent a boat in Croatia?

The price of a boat rental in Croatia can vary depending on many different factors. Some of these factors include the duration of your charter, the amenities you have on board, and the number of people that will be on the boat. It is important to note that some amenities do come at an extra cost, as well as hiring a captain and choosing to rent a crewed yacht.

The harbors in Croatia

Your charter experience in Croatia cannot be completed until you’ve also had the opportunity to explore the small islands and mainland on foot. When you’re ready to dock your boat, be sure to have a few harbors and marinas in mind so you don't spend too long searching for a spot to dock your boat.

Here are some harbors in the area:

  • Vela Luka Town
  • Harbor Baro
  • Veli Dervnik
  • Korcula Town
  • Komiza, Vis
  • Trogir, Town Harbor
  • Zaklopotica, Lastovo
  • Vis Town, Viska Luka

What can you see/do in Croatia?

Croatia is home to many historic sites and untouched nature, making it a highly sought-out location for vacation. To get the most out of your trip to this Eastern European country, we recommend staying for a week minimum and renting a boat for a couple of days.

Some of our favorite sports in Croatia are:

  • Dubrovnik – Located on the southern coast of Croatia, Dubrovnik is one of the most popular cities. The city’s old historic town was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site and should be on any visitor’s list. During your time here, discover the beautiful coastline and sandy beaches of Dubrovnik and escape the crowded beaches by heading to nearby islands such as Lokrum or Otočić Grebeni.
  • Split – The city of Split is the second largest in Croatia and is known for its breathtaking views overlooking the Mediterranean. The rugged coastline in this area offers many hidden beaches that are only accessible by boat, making them exclusive and secluded. Similar to Dubrovnik, you can either stay around the main city or venture off to nearby islands such as Brač and Hvar.
  • Zadar – Situated in the Adriatic Sea, Zadar is the oldest continuously inhabited Croatian city. It is full of history and culture, and breathtaking national parks. Typically, visitors tend to go to Zadar as a starting point to then visit the smaller islands in the area. Here you can snorkel and scuba dive in gorgeous crystal-clear waters.

Renting a boat with a skipper

With Océans Evasions, it is possible to charter a yacht in Croatia with or without a skipper. If you’re planning to go on a bareboat charter, make sure you have all the legally required documents up-to-date and on you at all times; Croatia is typically strict with its boating laws. In fact, in Croatia, there are three different types of sailing licenses, each one authorizing the operation of different types of boats. You should look for a yacht charter in Croatia without a skipper only if you are an experienced sailor in possession of the appropriate license. On the other hand, if you want a more relaxing holiday, however, you should instead opt for a crewed yacht hire in Croatia complete with a skipper, who will take care of the more technical aspects of sailing and show you around the country.

What boat should I rent?

The type of boat you decide to rent for your charter experience will set the tone for the rest of your charter experience. When choosing a boat, many factors should be considered, such as how many people you will have onboard, the type of activities you want to do, the length of your rental, and other factors. If you have any questions about the boat, make sure to contact the boat owner directly!

When is the best time to go?

The climate in Croatia is varied across the country, with a continental climate further inland, but a mostly Mediterranean climate along the Adriatic coastline. Peak season runs from July to August, with the best weather and temperatures usually in the high 70s and 80s. However, during the summer months, tourism is booming in Croatia, so it is recommended to visit in the Spring or Autumn when the weather is still good, but the beaches are less packed.
