Are you looking for a summer destination offering wonderful, clear sea, a selection of adventure experiences, lots of sightseeing and party opportunities... all without breaking the bank? We have a wonderful idea for you - Croatia! 

The coastline of Croatia extends for 1800 kilometers from the Slovenian border in the North, to the border with Montenegro in the south. With the exception of some developed stretches of coastline in Istria, much of Croatia is still relatively undiscovered - but if you truly want to get off the beaten track, you'll have to head for the islands!

With over 1000 islands scattered all over the Adriatic Sea, chances are you won't get bored. There's truly a Croatian island for everyone - nature lovers shouldn't miss Mljet, a short hop away from Dubrovnik; Vis (not far from Split) is a wonderful foodie destination, Brac is perfect for watersports, Pag is probably the #1 party island and places like Hvar or Sveti Clement are ideal to relax. 

To make matters even better, sailing Croatia is surprisingly affordable, with yacht charters setting off considerably less compared to other well-known Mediterranean sailing destinations like Greece and Sardinia. For example, did you know you could enjoy Croatia cruises under $500 per person, even in the middle of summer? If you haven't yet decided where to head in summer 2018, check out these five amazing yacht rentals from all over the country, all run by local operators ready to turn your Croatia sailing escapade into the adventure of a lifetime!


1) Sail your own Catamaran from Dubrovnik

If you are able to sail, you probably won't find another deal like this in the whole Mediterranean! This sailing catamaran is based in Dubrovnik and sleeps 10, making it ideal to accommodate a group of friends. It can be rented without a skipper, and the price in this case starts from €1870 per week - you do the maths, can you really believe a sailing holiday could be THAT affordable? 

There's plenty to explore in and around Dubrovnik - the town was chosen as a film set for uber-popular series Game of Thrones and nearby you can also visit the three Elaphiti Islands, three little-visited islands offering a fascinating blend of villages, vineyards, and deserted beaches. 


2) Discover Nature from Zadar

Are you a nature lover? Don't miss this private yacht charter from Zadar, the ideal location to discover nature thanks to its vicinity to many Croatian national parks. This yacht also accommodates 10 and even counting the fee for a skipper, it can be rented for as little as €3000 for the full week. 

From Zadar, don't miss spending a few days sailing around Kornati national park, an archipelago made of hundreds of islands and islets tightly packed together - you'll see unique landscapes and enjoy delicious fish-based lunches at the many konoba (taverns) located all over the archipelago, reachable only by boat. Another adventure you cannot miss from Zadar is visiting Krka National Park, where you can swim in pristine waterfalls! This is truly one of our best Croatia cruises under $500!


3) Luxury Sailing from Split

This sailing yacht based in Split truly fits the definition of 'affordable luxury' - it only fits 6 people and it has comfortable, wood-paneled interiors and rental fees starting from €1000 per week! This is ideal for a sailing couple or a small group of friends wanting to sail around Croatia without the hassle of putting together a large group to make boat charter fees affordable. 

Split is only a short crossing away from many of Croatia's big-name islands - Hvar is one of the largest islands in the region and there's so much to see and do, including unspoilt beaches, smaller islands all around and even a microbrewery. Brac is famous not only for its delicious restaurants but also for Zlatni Rat, a horn-shaped beach of clear white sand that graces the covers of many Croatian travel brochures, often mentioned as one of Croatia's best beaches.


4) Istria by Motor Yacht

This motor yacht based in Pula, Istria, may be small, but it sure packs a punch! It comfortably fits four people in one cabin, making it perfect for a family wanting to discover Istria in total freedom - besides this, it won the Croatian Boat of the Year award in 2016, thanks to its powerful performance, low fuel consumption, and amazing onboard comfort and functionality. At only €1500 per week, it's a real deal!

Istria is best-known for its charming towns and villages - Pula houses Roman ruins that have nothing to envy to the Colosseum, whereas Poreč has a lot to offer in terms of history, with some beautiful Byzantine mosaics. Other towns that are worth a visit are Novigrad and Rovinj, with some stunning clifftop bars - if you prefer getting lost in nature, head to Brijuni or Kamenjak National Park, where you can even discover dinosaur footprints! One of our Croatia cruises under $500 perfect for families with young kids!


5) Sail Dalmatia in Style

This stunning yacht is based not far from Zadar and it accommodates up to 10 people comfortably. Its interiors blend design and functionality in an effortless manner, and groups can enjoy it without the need to take out a second mortgage - rental fees start from €1350 in low season, and never exceed €2750 - a great deal!

Our local operator can help you find the ideal itinerary according to your needs - Zadar is conveniently located right at the center of the Dalmatian coast, so you could either sail southwards towards Split taking in the Kornati Archipelago along the way, or head north to Pag, one of the liveliest islands in Croatia in terms of parties and nightlife. One thing is certain - after your first Croatia yacht charter, you'll be planning to visit again!
