From Croatian yachting's humble renaissance to it's consistent growth as more and more people fell in love with her sublime islands and fortified towns... we were part of the story. Yet we have not wavered in almost 15 years from the principle that guides us: we are true Dalmatia experts. We decided not to follow others as they aspire to take on the globe, and to focus on providing scintillating Croatian yachting experiences with unmatched attention to detail. And that's exactly what we did.
It's fair to say Dalmatia is in the blood. Our team of Croatian nationals was built by Dora Vulic on the strength of her prior six years' experience in the luxury yacht charter industry, herself a qualified skipper and the only Croatian female to have completed the arduous Round the World Clipper Yacht Race. Dora and her team grew up in and around the sailing community in Split: that means impeccable contacts and local fleet and route knowledge that's second to none.
If you are looking for a superb yachting experience with local experts for whom no detail is too small, don't let others promise you the world.
Sail with us. Sail Dalmatia.
We can’t think of a better place to enjoy a holiday afloat with your friends and family.
Read our reasons why:
Why charter? A quick glance at the map provides the answer: over a thousand enchanting islands and countless more coves and inlets only to be explored via the water. Croatia’s long thin coastal geography allows simple access from the sea to the spectacular walled towns and harbours dotted along the coastline. Drop anchor and swim ashore; wander the narrow streets of Stari Grad; watch the sun setting on Vidova Gora; dine on freshly-caught seafood at the finest family-run tavernas; watch Verdi’s Nabucco in the heart of Dalmatian Palace in Split, explore Dubrovnik’s old town with a local historian; admire the Venetian architecture and Baroque grandeur; enjoy the night life of cosmopolitan Hvar, or go soul -searching on the remote island of Vis.
We are of course biased, but we are not alone. Croatia is an unbeatable destination for turquoise waters, hidden coves and beautiful islands, both wild and remote and buzzing and cosmopolitan. Croatian tourism is certainly in the midst of a spectacular boom; visitor numbers are nearly 200% what they were just ten years ago and increasing season after season. Enter a quick online search for top sailing destinations and you'll quickly understand why it's the fastest growing sailing market in Europe and consistently features in leading travel guides' and newspapers' top three. Boasting the longest sunlight hours anywhere in Europe and offering everything from delightful medieval walled cities to Riviera style resorts buzzing with restaurants and nightlife, Croatia certainly has something for everyone.
In short, we will draw on years of experience to tailor your trip to perfection. Whether it is a large group family sailing holiday, a luxury yacht charter, a romantic yacht escape, a special celebration, a family reunion or a multigenerational family yachting experience, we've got it all covered. It's the reason we've grown year on year and are a market leader for yacht charters in Croatia. We share a genuine passion for sailing and yachting, the beautiful elegance of the yachts we recommend, and this beautiful corner of the Adriatic that is our home and than we know inside-out. Our clients come back season after season because of our exceptional customer service and our deep knowledge to match them with the perfect yacht, whether you prefer the traditional craftsmanship of a charming wooden 'gulet' or the more modern feel of a catamaran of motor yacht.
We also know it's essential to match you with a friendly knowledgeable captain and discreet fully trained crew. But moreover, being experts, we will intricately design the best route and excursions to provide you with the perfect balance between relaxation and activity: do as much or as little as you please. Trends in the tourism industry have shifted from 'holidaying' to meaningful experiences, or so called 'experiential travel'. Also responsible tourism and environmental awareness are on the rise and have become an important element when travelling. Here at Sail Dalmatia we aim at providing something truly unique.
We know your time on-board is so precious; that's why we take care of everything so you don't have to. The unique complimentary concierge service we offer to clients is what separates us form the competition. Allow us to pre-arrange all transfers, excursions, restaurant bookings, or anything else. All with the aid of our hefty book of contacts. We are happy to organise anything from childcare to scenic helicopter flights. Ask us about securing tickets for the best Croatian open-air music festivals, or if we are able to pre-stock your favourite food and wine on board. We have built our reputation on customer service and our client reviews on the testimonials page speak for themselves. We also provide complete peace of mind when you book with us. We transact in regulated MYBA e-contracts. All of our yachts available for charter are fully insured and licensed by the Croatian Boat Registry. Furthermore, all our charter agreements are protected by Galleon Marine PI Insurance for up to €500,000 per agreement giving you an extra security and evidence that you are dealing with certified yachting professionals.
