AS FEATURED IN
Based in London since 2008, Sail Dalmatia are unrivalled specialists in the provision of fully crewed gulet and yacht charters off the stunning Dalmatian coast. 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 over 11 years from the principle that guides us: we are true Croatia experts. We decided not to follow others as they aspire to take on the globe, and to focus on providing the perfect Croatian cruises with unmatched attention to detail. And that's exactly what we did.
It's fair to say Dalmatia is in the blood. Our Croatian speaking team was built by Dora Vulic on the strength of her prior thirteen years' experience in the luxury yacht charter industry, herself a qualified yacht broker and skipper and the only Croatian female to have completed the arduous Round the World Clipper Race. Dora 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 truly tailor-made experience with local experts for whom no detail is too small, don't let others promise you the world. Don't just sail. Sail Dalmatia.
We can’t think of a better place to enjoy a holiday afloat. Here are 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. If you would like to see more, have a look at the brand new drone video on Croatia. It is a 3 hours long and you might not have enough time to watch it but we guarantee you will be astonished with what you see. Bird's Eye View of Croatia can be seen here.
We are of course biased, but we are not alone. 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. It's the reason we've grown year on year and are a market leader for Croatia. Here at the office we share a genuine passion for sailing, the beautiful elegance of the boats we recommend, and this beautiful corner of the Adriatic we know inside-out. Our clients come back season after season because we have the deep knowledge to match them with the perfect vessel, 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. All our tour guides are individuals born and raised in Croatia who hold an official tour guide license (that’s right, they’ve had to pass an exam), which means they’re total pros when it comes to helping you see practically anything. Each year we are relentless in our search to enrich the client experience and pride ourselves in our efforts to maximise your time on-board. From a family stargazing adventure at Struga lighthouse or a sea kayaking experience in the Elafiti Archipelago, to cycling through the UNESCO protected Stari Grad Plain, your time aboard and onshore is guaranteed to provide lasting memories. Why not challenge yourself to an excursion on a Falkusa, a traditional fishing boat with no engine or instruments where you will depend solely on your keen navigational skills? Or maybe rock climbing in the Kornati Archipelago?
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. This means your money is protected in our Barclays Client Account in London and the deposit is passed onto the owner when your charter starts. The other half is transferred to the owner on the last day of your charter. All of our yachts available for charter are fully insured and licensed by the Croatian Boat Registry. We only work with the owners and the crew we personally know and who meet our high standards. Furthermore, all our charter agreements are protected by Galleon Marine PI Insurance for up to €500,000 per agreement.

“As you step onto the boat, the busy world that you’re so used to starts to fade away and you gain a profound sense of oneness with nature, the sea and the wind. The horizon expands but your focus narrows on what really matters in life.”
