Dubrovnik old town pier, Croatia
Choosing to charter a yacht in Dubrovnik might be a decision worth making. This could be the perfect getaway for your summer vacation. Known as “The Pearl of the Adriatic”, the city of Dubrovnik is known for its medieval architecture; here you can find squares with quaint cafes and farmers’ markets, Renaissance history, beautiful landscapes and art festivals.
For yacht charters in Croatia the skipper must have RYA Skipper Practical certificate or RYA ICC qualification, and the weather conditions are ideal for sailors. In the coming months you can plan on hot, dry days perfect for sailing. Keep in mind that mooring charges do apply and usually run from €30 to €90 per night depending on the location and size of your yacht. Luckily, there are alternatives in the form of numerous protected anchorages.
When chartering a yacht in Dubrovnik, there are a few things to remember. When it comes to packing, take as little as possible. You will need shorts and swimming costumes and the basics, but the less, the better. Don’t forget something for the cool evenings; jumpers and trousers should suffice.
The Croatian currency is the Kuna and it is recommended that you change your money back to your home currency before you leave Croatia. Typically, it’s cheaper to convert money in Croatia than at home. Most towns have ATMs that are linked to international networks; credit cards are accepted but Visa/MasterCard are the most recognised. Cash is usually preferred.
When charting a yacht, it’s also usually wise to purchase insurance. We advise our clients to purchase holiday insurance and if you are a UK resident we recommend the “yachtman’s travel policy”.
