A number of the scam websites registered in Croatia is on the rise. If you are offered a heavy discount on a gulet (too good to be true) be aware as the gulet owners might not be aware of these deals and will not approve them so you will end up paying more once you arrived on board. Last summer, a client was offered a deal on a 30m gulet for 15,500 Euro all inclusive (the actual price for a party of 9 was 22,450 Euro). The agency they booked with advised the gulet owner the clients would be settling the extras in cash, although they confirmed the all inclusive deal with the client. Only book with a registered broker. This means the broker must give you the charter contract with the gulet owner details, one copy of the charter contract goes to you, one to the owner and one is kept by the broker so the prices and conditions are fully transparent. This is a standard practice in the yacht charter business. If you have not been given the charter contract, do not pay the boat deposit under any circumstances.
