What licenses do I need to rent a boat?
A valid license is compulsory for all boats with motor power greater than 6HP. Please note that to rent a boat in Croatia, a VHF license (certificate of Restricted Radio Telephony) is mandatory, as well.
What is included and what not?
Everything is included, except fuel, final cleaning of the boat (comfort package), food, transport and transfer costs to/from the base, port taxes/fees, mooring costs, tourist taxes.
Is my boat insured for the charter/rental?
All boats are insured and insured against all risks for the rental to a third person. You will however be asked to pay a deposit. This deposit is the amount of the insurance deductible, below which the insurer does not want to reimburse the owner of the boat for any “small” damage.
What are the embarkation and disembarkation times?
Most sailboat or catamaran rentals are always from Saturday to Saturday, for one reason – optimization of schedules.
Check-in is usually done on Saturday afternoon. The base manager will often ask you to return to the port the following week on Friday night to be ready for disembarking on Saturday morning. The technical team and cleaning team will then need to prepare the boat for the following clients. Weekly charter/rental is shortened by half a day to give some time for the base to intervene between each charter/rental.
Condition of the boat?
Our job is to select the best boats for you. We only work with with the best boat and companies that meet our standards of quality and services. In the event that your boat is not seaworthy, due to damage from the previous rental for example, we will offer a similar or better boat, or a full refund for your rental.
What documents do I need in order to travel to Croatia?
