Yacht Charter Croatia

Of all the many reasons there are to sail in Croatia, the nautical infrastructure set up for boat charters is an important one. Croatia boasts bout 56 marinas which together offer 16000 sea berths and 8500 berths on land for sailing boats.  Apart from marinas, there are also many private sailing clubs and ports for members only. The marinas in Croatia are located mostly in Dalmatian coastal towns, conveniently close to airports and other amenities. Charter boats are available in virtually all of these marinas. Other marinas  are located in beautiful bays on the islands and are delightful places to stop off at while cruising and to top up supplies. Often these island marinas do not offer charter boats, as they are more difficult to get to.


Charter boats in Croatia usually operate in marinas, not small harbors, because of the services provided, such as parking, water and power connections, services, supply of food and spare parts and repair and maintenance services.


ACI Marinas is a state owned company which controls approximately 20 marinas. Many of these marinas host charter vessels and the larger concentration of ACI marinas is in Central Dalmatia, somewhat less in the North Adriatic, and the least in Southern Dalmatia. Apart from ACI marinas, there are also privately owned marinas, mostly in the North Adriatic chosen for permanent berths probably due to the proximity of neighboring countries like Austria, Italy and Slovenia.  Only some marinas have the depth to accommodate the larger luxury yachts.


The standard of marinas and the services they provide are of a high quality in Croatia, with continuous investment and adjustments to the needs of the customer.


Daily berth price in marinas vary according to season, size of the vessel , and also depends on the marina. The most expensive daily berth is in high season from mid-June to the end of August. Daily berth prices for a 10-12 m a sailing boat range from around 60-90 Euros per day. Larger sailing boats of 14-16m price at about 90-130 Euros.


The price of berths for catamarans are mostly charged per length multiplied by 1.5 and the prices vary from a marina to a marina. The more popular marinas are pricier and some marinas located further from the land, usually offer promotional discounts for berths over weekends when the business is slower. For those sailing one way, or on an extended charter, weekends are good to moor up in the marinas on islands because they are less crowded.


Renting a permanent berth in a marina has the advantage of using that berth whenever needed with no extra charges, even in high season. So if you are chartering a boat, then the berth is at your disposal for the length of your charter at no extra cost.


For boat owners, the annual berth price also depends on the type of the marina and size of the boat and ranges from 3000 Euros a year to 8500.


Apart from the marinas in Croatia, there are moorings on the smaller islands in harbours and ports. Mooring prices in some places are significantly lower than berth prices in marinas and range from 3  to 6 Euros per meter of the sailing boat. Some places offer only water and electricity, and  others only mooring on buoys. The price of buoy mooring usually includes garbage collection.
