Catamaran charter in Croatia is becoming more and more popular every year, and today it is probably the most popular yachting trend in the world. The main reason for this is that catamarans offer more comfort and space than sailing yachts, but they are cheaper than motor yachts.

Sailing catamaran charter in Croatia
Sailing catamarans combine the best from yachting world: a pleasure of traveling under sails and a comfort of motor yachts. They are the best example of integrating sport and leisure: reading a book in your comfortable bedroom, sunbathing on a flybridge and trimming jib sheets, are only few meters away.
Sailing catamarans are available for charter in every Croatian region, in every destination, in every starting port like: Pula, Zadar, Šibenik, Trogir, Split and Dubrovnik. Most of them are available for bareboat charter, but some of them, especially larger catamarans are available only with crew. On catamarans available for bareboat charter, it is always possible to add crew member, like a skipper, a hostess or a chef.
Bareboat catamaran charter in Croatia
Bareboat catamaran charter is a perfect option for those who have a sailing licence, know how to sail and enjoy in steering and maneuvering a catamaran.

Why some catamarans are not available for bareboat charter, but only crewed? There are three reasons for that:
The first reason is the complexity of maneuvering of big catamarans. On some models, it is impossible to see all corners of the boat, so here is necessary a lot of experience. On big boats lines are very heavy, sails and forces they make are huge, so any mistake can end up with serious injury. Well, you can say that a person with a sailing licence should be able to handle all of these problems. In our experience, it is usually not the case.
The second reason is the complexity of electrical systems on big yachts. It is impossible to learn these systems in one or two hours on a check-in, because they are not same on every boat. So even if you are experienced skipper, you might not know all little details, important for operating a large catamaran.
The third reason in the maintenance of a catamaran. The permanent crew can take care of a boat, and fix all little details that need to be fixed during the time. If a catamaran like this, would be chartered bareboat just for one week, and a charterer would forget to tell about possible problems, it would be impossible to discover or fix these problems on a check-out, and it might cause inconvenience to next charterer.
Skippered catamaran charter in Croatia
Why is skippered catamaran charter in Croatia so popular? There are many reasons for that. When you have a skipper on a boat, you can fully relax and enjoy your vacation, without any worries. Does everything work properly on your catamaran? Where to sail? Which island to visit’ What is the most interesting sailing itinerary? Is the weather forecast good? Will it be windy? Is it safe to go? Where is a good place to stop for a lunch and swim? Where shall we stop for a night, in a marina or in a bay? Which restaurant to choose for a dinner? All these questions will appear so simple when you gave a professional skipper on board.
Crewed catamaran charter in Croatia

If you are first time in Croatia, you would appreciate knowledge and help of our skippers, who know the most beautiful and interesting places in Adriatic sea. This way you can fully relax, and let crew do everything for you.
Catamarans vs sailing yachts
Everybody knows that catamarans are wider and more spacious than sailing yachts, but this is not the only advantage of catamaran charter in Croatia. Because of a smaller draft, catamarans can enter in more shallow bays, and allow you to enjoy in a beauty of turquoise water. For most people it is nicer to swim in a shallow water, but catamarans also, because of its size, have possibility to carry more anchor chain, and therefor they can anchor in deeper water if necessary as well. It is true, catamarans can’t give you that feeling of the sailing that gives you a sailing yacht. On a sailing yacht, you can really feel the see under your keel and power of the wind on a helm. The leaning of a yacht under strong wind is really a special feeling.
Regarding the space, we would like to emphasize the standing size of cabins, large beds and separate bathrooms for all cabins in most of catamarans. Many catamarans have electric toilets. Although it is possible to install them on any boat, they are not usual thing on sailing yachts, but they are standard equipment on most catamarans. Catamarans have large water tanks, so their autonomy is usually very good. Most of the catamarans have a generator and air condition, which is a nice thing to have during hot summer days. A big net on a bow and in general lot of areas for sunning. All of that makes life on a catamaran very relaxing.
The usual cons about the catamarans is their sailing performance. Can they sail as good as sailing yachts? It is true that catamarans can’t sail so close to the wind as sailing yachts, but on any other direction they sail just fine. Actually, on a strong wind, and especially broad reaching and running, they can sail faster than a sailing yacht. Catamaran charter in Croatia offers many catamarans equipped with electric winches, which helps with setting and trimming sails a lot.
Docking & anchoring
When docking a catamaran, you must keep in mind about your size. Sometimes, in a high season, when all marinas are getting full quickly, it is difficult to find a slip. The very docking, when you do have experience, is maybe easier than with a sailing monohull. This is due to two propellers placed very wide, which gives you possibility to turn around in one spot. When docked or anchored, catamarans are very steady, and anchoring is also easier than with sailing yachts.
Motor catamaran charter in Croatia
Although the motor catamarans are not new on the market, the power catamaran charter in Croatia is getting more and more popular. Many people just love space and comfort that catamarans offer, and they don’t really care about the wind and sailing. Because of that, sails and lines become unnecessary. Motor catamarans, as they name says, have stronger engines, which allows higher speed. It make a big difference when crossing a longer distance. Sometimes you can save several hours, but sometimes it just helps you to break through strong wind and waves, which can be very difficult on a small sailing catamaran. The most popular models are Lagoon 40 Motoryacht, Lagoon 630 Motoryacht, Sunreef Power 70 and Fountaine Pajot MY 37.
