Bucket List Holiday
It’s safe to say my sailing experience with The Yacht Break was a true bucket list one [….] to experience such a beautiful place on a yacht with the most polite, knowledgeable and patient skipper imaginable enhanced the experience way beyond my expectations. Tilen made us feel so comfortable and safe […] He also introduced us to many wonderful restaurants and experiences on the trip which we would never had discovered without him […] Just can’t wait to take the family next time… (2019)
Best sailing holiday!
Incredible views, delicious restaurants in each « port », a streamlined yet super comfortable and well-appointed yacht… if you’re looking to escape the stress of a busy life, this is the golden ticket! My friends and I had such an amazing time sailing around just a small area of the gorgeous Croatian coastline. And there’s so much more to explore… Thank you Tilen and The Yacht Break team! Croatia – you’ve not seen the last of me yet… (2019)
A sailing holiday with a difference!!!
Just returned from an incredible week sailing with The Yacht Break. A really unique trip that I’d recommend to anyone with a taste for adventure.. We spent a blissful week exploring the beautiful islands and coastline of Croatia which you simply would not experience in the same way by staying within the confines of a hotel. Tilen, our skipper was top class and the holiday gave me and my friends a rare opportunity to unwind and relax, knowing we were in good hands with the Yacht Break team. I’ll definitely be back! (2019)
A great experience from start to finish
We started and finished in beautiful Sibenik and […] sailed round the gorgeous Kornati Islands then went inland to Krka national park for the last day to see stunning waterfalls. The scenery was lush, lots of unpopulated islands and we saw dolphins one day […] Not much wind to start with but had a couple of days with sails out but always felt safe with Tilen and mooring calm and controlled unlike a lot of other yachts we saw. Couldn’t recommend Yacht Break enough. Perfect for special 40th birthday celebration with girls. A great experience from start to finish. Thank you Tilen and The Yacht Break for making it all so easy! (2019)
I simply cannot thank The Yacht Break, and Tilen our skipper enough having just returned from a simply stunning week sailing through the Croatian Islands National Park with friends […] As a very experienced traveller who has worked in the Travel Industry for 22 years I was still blown away by the beauty […]
Whether an experienced sailor, or total newbie like myself I cannot recommend The Yacht break enough. A truly mind blowing experience I will definitely be repeating. Never in a million years would I have imaging myself to enjoy a sailing trip, I am absolutely converted! Thanks a million guys (2019)
We recommend The Yacht Break without hesitation!
Our first time in Croatia won’t be our last thanks to Tilen and The Yacht Break. He arranged a Dufour 350 and a skipper for our week-long charter out of Split. We are sailors and were looking forward to this trip for a while. The Yacht Break took care of everything for us, helping us select the boat, offering an excellent price and answering all our numerous questions amazingly fast. Tilen paid attention to every detail and we couldn’t be happier. Special thanks to our skipper, Juraj, who became part of the family. His expert seamanship and attention to detail were excellent. We recommend The Yacht Break without hesitation. (2019)
Fantastic Trip with a Great Skip!
We took an amazing sail from Split to Dubrovnik with Tilen at the helm. Our group of 10 had the best trip imaginable. He put together the complete itinerary and took care of all the details. He found the most spectacular places to stop and was always ready to adjust the itinerary as the group needs changed. The places he arranged for dinner were beyond delicious. The views were consistently breathtaking and the food was wonderful. I would recommend getting any meat cooked “under the bell” and chase it with local Rakia (English translation: Rocket Fuel). I can’t wait to schedule my next trip with Tilen. He’s the best. (2018)
We chartered a private yacht for our honeymoon with Tilen as our skipper. Sailing around the Dalmatian islands from Trogir to Hvar, Šćedro and Vis. Highly recommended. Once in a lifetime experience that we can’t wait to repeat ? (2018)
Perfect sailing trip
Our second time with Tilen as skipper. Planning on going next year too! Easy to book, no surprises. We were on a Hanse 575, just me and my wife (2018)
An excellent company offering great local knowledge and a supreme experience!! (2018)
Tilen is a master-skipper – the best I’ve had a pleasure to work with. When we were sailing in Croatia, the whole experience wouldn’t have been the same if he wasn’t running the yacht the way he did (2018)
My friends and I hired a Yacht and Tilen was our skipper for the week. We had so much fun and he showed us all around Croatia […] We had such a fantastic time and would highly recommend it to anyone!! (2018)
An absolute blast
My coworkers and I decided to spend a week on the Croatian coast. We ended up spending the vacation with The Yacht Break which turned out to be a great decision […]
[…] Our skipper, Tilen, was very calm and knowledgable and he made sure everything was in order. We had an absolute blast and would definitely do it again! I highly recommend it as a great way to see the beautiful Croatian coast! (2017)
I had a great time with The Yacht Break. Tilen was a fantastic skipper. He put together an amazing route for us from Split to Dubrovnik and was happy to adjust it before or as we went along. It was an incredible journey and would absolutely do it again!
Thank you very much again for organizing our sailing vacation! We had the most wonderful time. The boat was perfect and our skipper and hostess were AMAZING.
So very knowledgable about the area, culture, food and were beyond helpful. We are planning on requesting them for another trip!
Great boat & good service
Hello! We had a fantastic trip! The boat we had this time was a bit different than the ones we have had before, but we liked it! […]
