Split

Split is one of the most popular yacht charter bases in Croatia. A major tourist, commercial and cultural center, it is located in central Dalmatia and is the second largest city in Croatia.


From Split you can sail south to the islands of Brac, known for its Zlatni Rat Beach, long and pebbly; Hvar, the Adriatic’s glitzy party island which has a great culinary scene and Vis, with its Roman ruins and crystalline waters. Peace and quiet is nearby too with many hidden coves and sandy beaches to anchor in.


Dating back to ancient times, there are a number of archaeological, historical and cultural monuments and museums. Diocletian’s Palace is not to be missed. Recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, it was constructed by the Roman Emperor Diocletian and was an opulent and heavily fortified palace fronting the sea. It now forms about half the old town of Split.



For hiring a vessel from Split, there is a choice of four marinas: ACI Marina Split, Zenta Marina, Spinut Marina and Poljud Marina. The area around Split is well known by sailors as the ideal starting point for yacht rentals in Croatia. The Dalmatian islands are all easily accessible from here and all types of vessels are available for hire: sailing boats, motor boats and catamarans. In Split we also offer gullets, as well as crewed luxury motor yacht charters.


Split is a transport hub and is connected via the Adriatic coastal road to Dubrovnik and by highway to Zadar, Zagreb and Rijeka. The bus station is next to the ferry port in the center of town and connects Split with Dubrovnik, Sibenik, Zadar, Rijeka and Zagreb. There is also a train station with lines to Sibenik, Zadar and Zagreb.


There are ferry lines to Rijeka and Dubrovnik, as well as to the islands Solta, Brac, Hvar, Vis, Veliki Drvenik and Mali Drvenik, Korcula and Lastovo. International ferry lines connect Split with Ancona, Pescara and Bari via Dubrovnik.


Split International Airport is 25 kilometers northwest of Split. There are direct daily flights to Zagreb and many European cities. Special bus lines connect the Split airport and the centre of Split, several times per day.


The waters in this region pose no major problems for navigation and are suitable for beginners. Sailing conditions are ideal; the prevailing winds are the friendly Maestral from the North West, the Bora from the North East, and Sirocco and Jugo winds from the South/South East. Easy line-of-site sailing defines the area and makes it a popular place to charter a boat from.
