Slowly but surely becoming the new go-to place for sailors in the Mediterranean, you cannot be a enthusiast yacht charter sailor without taking a sailing trip to Croatia, the country of the shores of the Adriatic, one of the last remaining bastions of the “old Mediterranean”.
Yacht charter Croatia should be the perfect idea for a holiday in the summertime since sailing is held in such high regard here, and since there are so many sailing spots along its 1778km of coastline, one of the most irregular in the Adriatic, which affords the charter Croatia some of the more spectacular seashores and archipelagos in this part of Europe.
The reason why Croatia yacht charter holidays are such great adventures is because the whole country seems to have been destined to be a tourist attraction even in ancient times, many rich Romans chose to build summer retreats here. This is the main reason today the Croatian countryside is littered with Roman ruins, some of which very famous, like Diocletian’s Palace.
The most famous regions for Croatia yacht charter are the large Kvarner Bay, the Dalmatia peninsula and the heralded Kornati archipelago, which is nothing short of breath-taking for most first time sailors who get to explore the thousands of islands and islets scattered along the coast of central Croatia, in the bluest waters of the Adriatic.
To support this large influx of yacht charter tourists, Croatia has created a prestigious maritime association, the Adriatic Croatia International club which has marinas all over the Croatian coast that ensure some of the highest standard of quality services and also strong ties with the German and Slovenian sailing associations.
Most of the marinas are new and official figures show they can hold up to 16000 boats on water and 5500 more on land (dry berths). With those kinds of figures, you’re sure to find a mooring place for your Croatia sailing trip, even during the high tourist season.
Another advantage when sailing in Croatia is the fact that the local infrastructure is in such a way created that you’re never too far away from a marina, which means you won’t have to sail significant distances in order to reach your next stop, which is always useful, especially when you’re trying to sail at your leisure and take in as much of the local landscape as possible without time restraints.
So, for a relaxed and lovely sailing vacation on some of the cleanest and calmest waters of the Mediterranean, choose to book a holiday this summer in Croatia.
