Croatia, a sailing area of superlatives!

The perfect place to charter a yacht or catamaran.

Charter a yacht or catamaran and enjoy the natural wonders of the Croatian coast. There are 1,244 islands, 8 national parks and 11 natural parks to discover with intact flora and fauna. Let yourself be pampered by Croatian cuisine during your sailing holiday!

Every evening in a marina with all amenities, good restaurants, pubs and nightlife? Or rather a sailing trip from bay to bay, without much hustle and bustle and no marina? Or spend one or the other evening in a buoy field and enjoy fresh fish in one of the island restaurants? In Croatia you can have all these variants in one area and of course combine them. This makes Croatia the most diversified area worldwide! Everyone who wants to charter a yacht will get their money’s worth.

Croatia offers good sailing conditions to our charter customers in spring and autumn, and due to its easy accessibility by car, Croatia can also be reached cheaply outside the high season. In summer, the moderate wind conditions and the many islands and bays make Croatia the ideal yacht charter destination for trips with children.

Yacht Charter Base Split / Marina Kastela

Marina Kastela, 21213 Kastel Gomilica, Kroatien
Position: 43° 32’N 16° 24’ 44”E

Visit Split / Kastela, where the perfect marina awaits you. Cosmopolitan and easy to reach, the Kastela marina will surely convince you. In the immediate vicinity is Split whose city center with the Diocletian’s Palace (305 AD) is a World Heritage Site.

Split is also the ideal starting point to begin your journey through southern Dalmatia. From Kastela you sail in short stages to the sunny islands Solta, Brac, Hvar, Vis, Korcula, Lastovo and Mljet. Follow in the footsteps of Marco Polo, the son of Korcula. A visit to the town of Hvar with a walk to the castle allows a wonderful view to Vis and Korcula. Brac: The bathing highlight of the island lies in the south near the place Bol: the “Golden Horn” Zlatni rat. It is a sand peninsula 400 meters far into the sea.

The Dalmatian town of Kastela is located in the middle part of the Croatian Adriatic coast between Trogir and Split. Due to its history, Kastela is a very interesting city from this part of Croatia. Between the 15th and 16th centuries, the then settlers built in this area a total of 13 forts for protection against attackers. Over time, various villages formed around the castles, which continued to grow together over the years. The seven remaining places (Kastel Stafilic, Kastel Novi, Kastel Stari, Kastel Luksic, Kastel Kambelovac, Kastel Gomilica, Kastel Sucurac) today form the town of Kastela, which stretches along a length of almost 16 km on the Adriatic coast.

In addition to the impressive seven remaining Kastellen, Kastela offers its visitors numerous other attractions, including one of the oldest olive trees in Croatia and the biblical garden in Kastel Novi. The city also offers interesting cultural events, such as the traditional Carnival in winter or the Kastelaner Kultursommer from early July to late August. As part of the cultural summer numerous concerts, competitions and demonstrations are held in different parts of the city.

Active holidaymakers and swimmers will not get their money’s worth in the city: Kastela, for example, is a popular starting point for hikes to the adjacent Kozjak Mountains, but also a starting point for boaters. In addition, the region offers interesting bathing spots with its various bays.
