Lagoon 42 vs 46

Comparison table

We recommend Lagoon 42 for up to six people and Lagoon 46 for up to eight people. Both boats are perfect in terms of comfort and quality. Lagoon 46 is a more luxurious boat with more perks and a recommended upgrade if the budget allows it.



Cancelation policy (Let's not think about that)

You can cancel free of charge in case of a border closing (or any other Force majeure). In case of normal conditions, we will make a credit note for your week, but only after we manage to sell your boat/date. You are free to transfer this credit note to your future reservation. You can also insure your trip with your insurance company, which is cheap and recommended.

Is sailing suitable for anyone (For sure it is)

YES. Distances between islands in Croatia are short. Sea is usually calm and you are always protected by the islands. Kids love boating and swimming.

Payment options (We have everything)

You can pay via IBAN bank account, US (Checking) bank account, credit card, Paypal or Crypto. The deposit 30% - 50% is paid at the reservation, and the rest 30 days before the check-in date.

Can I rent a yacht for only a few days (Rather not)

We do not offer anything less than 7 days in the full season. Also, it is impossible to see the best islands, as you need at least 6-7 days, to get the full experience and see the best places. 6-7 days on a boat passes very fast, as you have a new island for every day. All of the charters are operating the same way, especially in the full season. 

When do we buy the groceries? (Hostess is a life saver)

We always recommend to take a hostess. She will take care of everything, from provisioning, cooking to cleaning. If not, you are always advised to make basic shopping before arriving to the base or after the check-in procedure. Please note that before the check-in procedure is done on boat, you are not allowed to bring your luggage or groceries on boat. While sailing you will probably moor on some of the island, and you must know that most of the villages and cities on the islands have shops and small markets, so we recommend you buy fresh local food.

Can we do a one-way sailing route (Of course you can)

Please contact us and we will arrange the one way sailing route.

What does check-in look like (L46 & L43 - no checkin)

In Croatia, upon arrival at the marina, proceed to the office to finalize your paperwork. Once your boat is cleaned, prepared technically, and checked, it’s ready for you to embark! You will be accompanied by a technician and a video check-in will take place. After the inspection of the boat, you are ready to sail away.

For all other destinations, check-in is performed by the skipper and one crew member together with someone from our base staff. They inspect the boat from stem to stern, and check that all the equipment is in place and functioning properly.

During check-in, you will also receive instructions on the operation of the specific yacht model you’ll be chartering. You and your crew will be given instructions regarding the use of toilet, septic tank, and propane for cooking. Should you have any questions or concerns, please ask our staff! If you detect any malfunctions, just call our service team! When you sign the takeover, ensure that any existing damage has already been written down. At check-out you will go through the boat again and be given the chance to rate our service.

  • From booking to actually arriving at the boat, we had very clear instructions and helpful suggestions for our stay. Marin, our skipper & Petra, our host were exceptionally communicative and helpful. The week before, they contacted us to find out our wishes, food requests and gave us clear instructions on how to find them at check in. From the minute we stepped on the boat we were made to feel very at home and relaxed almost immediately. Marin was very considerate, informative and easy to get along with. Petra served us exceptional food both for breakfast and lunch. We will miss them.

  • This was one of the greatest trips we have ever had! It was our first time on a sailing trip and everything was perfect. Miha was very quick and clear to communicate when making the booking and provided detailed booking information. In terms of value it was well worth the money. And finally our Skipper Igor was excellent! He was extremely professional and provided a very safe sailing experience whilst also taking us to some amazing places that we would never had heard of otherwise. We have enjoyed some of the best food and wine in our lives and Croatia is such a beautiful place. Thank you to Miha, Igor and everyone else involved.

  • Miha at Active Cruises did a great job arranging our trip and was extremely patient given all the delays because of Corona. The boat was in great shape and the logistics of arrival and drop-off went smoothly. Much better than with some of the big charter companies.
    At Miha’s recommendation we decided to hire a captain. This was a “super” decision. Marin was not only a great captain but an excellent guide, entertainment director, and local custom expert. He also went above and beyond to track down lost luggage and pick up late arrivals. His expertise securing us a safe berth each night at minimum expense was invaluable. It saved us money and eliminated the unknown pitfalls of mooring in a strange harbor. Our favorite stops were Stari Grad on Hvar and the island of Mljet. Stari Grad is a beautiful harbor at night and a great mix of night life and local culture. Mljet is a protected island with wonderful salt water lakes that we enjoyed on an E-bike tour. Our best excursion was the E-bike (this turned out to be a great way to see the interior of the islands) tour in Bol even though we were soaked in the end by a squall that blew in unexpectedly. We found a quaint little restaurant called Dalmatino to warm up in and grab some lunch. The workers were very friendly (like everyone in Croatia) and even watched our E-bikes while we relaxed. Overall it was a fantastic experience and one we would do again. And we would definitely use Active Cruises and get Marin as our captain!

  • It was a great adventure filled with good times and friendships. We spent time exploring and site seeing: cities, caves, ruins, viewpoints, and learning about the people, history, cultures of Croatia. From the boat we spent time enjoying peaceful sailing, or actively helping sail if you wished, swimming, reading, and playing cards as a group.
    For my wife and I, one of our favorite aspects of our trip was Captain Marin. Marin is such a caring and friendly person that really knew how to host all of us. Marin is very outgoing and docked us at great locations, planned wonderful excursions (like our bike ride on Lastovo), and made sure we ate at tasty restaurants. It seemed like Marin knew everyone every place we went. He was also fun to have a couple of drinks with at the end of the night. The guy is full of life and became a friend to all of us.

  • WOW! What a fantastic way to see the islands of Croatia! The boat was extremely spacious for four of us and carried us through some of the most beautiful islands we have sailed to date. Marin was our skipper and knew how to make each of us happy. We came over from the US and weren't really familiar with the country, currency, language yet Marin made us feel safe and is now like family. He listened and kept each of us happy (let my husband sail as much as he wanted, taught my son how to sail and drive the dingy, set up adventures for myself and my sister in law) was PERFECT. He was present at the right moments and also gave us some privacy. The embrace my son gave him when we left was worth every penny! We can't wait to sail with Marin again!

  • Our group of four adults had an absolutely amazing time traveling on the L42. The boat was fantastic, our skipper was amazing, and the sights along the way were breath-taking. The cabin and outdoor areas were spacious and comfortable. We were even impressed with the showers. We enjoyed cooking a few meals on the boat, but our skipper took us to the best restaurants on the islands at night. We swam in beautiful lagoons, relaxed on the sun deck, explored both historical and rarely-reached destinations, ate the best food Croatia had to offer, and had the time of our lives! We’ve traveled all over Europe, and hands-down, this was our favourite trip we’ve ever experienced. There is no way to discover this hidden gem of a country better than onboard the MK I!

  • Igor was a FANTASTIC skipper to have on board and we had so much fun getting to know him! He showed us some amazing spots, let us learn as much as we wanted sailing, and made everyone feel safe and comfortable. We can't imagine a better fit for our family, the trip wouldn't have been the same with anyone else! Thank you Miha for the quick responses to all of our questions leading up and making the booking process so simple. Would 100% recommend!

  • What an amazing and unforgettable week on the beautiful and well equipped Leggiero. We were a group of 7 and the boat was absolutely perfect- we were able to see most of the islands (pending weather) and everything was exactly as I hoped and imagined. Miha was a wonderful host, very accommodating and helpful throughout the week. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. PS - if you ever need to know Hvar is Hvar, Miha will know.

  • Our family group of 6 had an amazing adventure aboard the Mala Kate cruising the islands. Our wonderful skipper, Igor, discussed various options with us and was able to tailor our sail to give us many special adventures like secret beaches, wine tasting in a cellar, biking and picturesque little towns. It’s wonderful to be able to adjust the itinerary and make it a special trip. Highly recommend!!

  • This was a great way to explore Croatia. The catamaran was very comfortable and we got a fantastic overview of the beauty of the country. Just the right mixture of activites, swim stops and local food. We would definately do it again.
