Our Recommended Sailing Routes in Croatia
The joy of taking a sailing holiday on a private yacht is that the sailing route and itinerary are flexible and can be modified to suit your needs. With a fine selection of yachts moored in marinas along the Dalmatian coast, there is something for everyone.
Croatian sailing routes
Local knowledge of the Dalmatian coastline is everything when thinking about sailing routes. For this reason, our experts have compiled a selection of recommended week-long sailing routes that you can enjoy during your sailing holiday. It is important to remember that when you are sailing, you are at the mercy of the weather. Therefore being able to adapt and be flexible is one of the great skills of our skippers and a perfect reason to take one onboard with you. However, you may choose to take a bareboat charter if you are already a skilled sailor, but make sure that you are aware of the weather and winds at all times.
Week-long route itineraries
The routes, which are designed to take a week, provide a detailed itinerary of what you can expect each day. This includes a rough guide to how long you will be sailing each day to help you plan and select the best route to suit your particular holiday and crew. You can also sail a one-way route with some yachts, but you will need to leave the boat by noon on the Friday to ensure that there is enough time to return it to the base marina. There is an additional charge that covers the fuel, labour and admin costs involved (€450-700 depending on the vessel).
Every route can be personalized to your interests, or you can even create your own! Don’t forget to use the approximate timings between the legs of the recommended routes to give yourself an idea of what is possible. Get in touch and let us know what you are interested in and we can help to develop a bespoke route just for you.
