Why Motorboats

Motorboat charter in Croatia is the perfect way to get the most out of your yachting holiday.

Comfort above all

Charter from Beneteau and Nimbus dealers in Croatia to enjoy the best-equipped and maintained motorboats on the charter market.

Safety first

Decades of experience and testing go into the design of leading boating brands. Safety, stability, and excellent handling in all weather conditions and at all speeds.

Speed

Excellent performance, great cruising, and maximum speed guarantee the perfect boating experience in Croatia and the possibility of covering most “ground”.

Motorboat charter is great for people who like to engage in activities like water-skiing and wakeboarding.

Although smaller in size than catamarans, they are a great choice for smaller groups of friends or a family. Typically, between 4 and 8 persons can spend a comfortable week cruising the Croatian coast. There’s plenty of living and sunbathing space, innovative and clever storage solutions, plus cozy berths for overnight stay in the cabins below deck and the convertible berths in the saloon.

Croatia, especially the Croatian islands, is actually the number one charter destination in the world. It’s also one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe because of its exceptional climate, diverse nature, and fascinating history.

You can rent a motorboat in one of our three marinas in Split, and near Dubrovnik and Sibenik, all conveniently located within one hour’s driving distance from the airports.

Depending on your qualifications, you can either rent a bare boat or rent a boat with a skipper if you lack experience or want a stress-free vacation.

Most boats we offer are rented on a weekly basis.

Guests from the Czech Republic in July 2019

The cruise was just fantastic. It was an amazing week for me and my girlfriend on board the Ariela. It’s perfect for two people. We had everything on the boat. It might be good to have a fridge on the flybridge. Palmizana was our favorite destination, and we loved Hvar town.

Guest from Switzerland, July 2019

Everything was good, well organized and fast. We had very nice weather. Everything was perfect and this is a new boat. It’s enough for 4 or 5 people.

Overview of the Croatian Islands


Croatia has over 1200 islands, most of which are uninhabited. Each island has its unique features and is rich in natural beauty and diverse landscapes. You’ll find stunning rock, pebble, and sandy beaches, old historical ruins, and national parks.

Due to its geographical position, Croatian islands have a great climate and warm temperatures with pleasant winds that allow easy cruising for the most part of the year. Of course, the summer months are certainly the most appeasing and also crowded. However, if you want to avoid the islands when they’re flocked with tourists, the best time to sail to Croatia is between April-mid June and from September to mid-October. On board our excellently equipped motorboats, you can certainly do that.

Motorboat Cruise Routes in Croatia

Start exploring the Croatian coast from three of our bases: Split, Slano near Dubrovnik, or Rogoznica near Sibenik.

Choose your charter base wisely. Thirty extra kilometers by car is nothing compared to sailing the same distance. Plan your trip and select your starting point as close to your preferred route as possible. You will have more time to enjoy the sea and fewer worries when returning to the home port.
But no matter which marina you pick, Croatia is so diverse and beautiful that any direction you decide to take will turn out amazing. One of the most beautiful sailing regions in Croatia is certainly Dalmatia. But even North, Central and South Dalmatia are each somewhat different from the other but all uniquely amazing. You’ll find stunning beaches, National parks, steep mountains, charming fishing villages and historical places Croatia is famous for. For instance, Dubrovnik, Korcula, Hvar, Vis, Split, Sibenik, Zadar and many more…
If you’re more into fun, and parties, there are vibrant places along the coast for some serious partying, day and night.
Gastronomy lovers can enjoy wine and authentic Mediterranean food away from the crowds since some of the best restaurants are located far away from any roads, and only accessible by boat. If you’re into food, we have great tips just for you.
Motorboat Charter in Croatia is great because you can cover big distances and really explore a lot of Croatia in just one week. Advanced sailing routes of around 200 nautical miles are no problem for a fast and reliable motorboat. Check all our suggested Croatia sailing routes and begin crafting your next summer holidays!

FAQs

Do you have some questions regarding motorboat charter in Croatia. We’ve gathered some of the most commonly asked questions on motor yacht charter in Croatia. Start here and then head on over to our full FAQ page and blog

Do you need a license to rent a motorboat in Croatia?

Yes, you need a valid license to rent a motorboat in Croatia.

The Maritime Law requires boating and VHF radio licenses for operating boats in Croatian waters. Along with Croatian licenses, numerous international sailing certificates are also recognized. In case you or any of your crew members do not have the necessary certificates, we’ll be happy to find a great skipper for you. Just add a skipper as an optional extra to your booking. Check the entire list of valid boating certificates.

How much does it cost to rent a motoboat in Croatia ?

The cost of renting a motoboat in Croatia depends on many different factors, from type and size of the boat, duration of the trip, skipper fees etc. Most motorboats are chartered for at least a week, so you can check all the prices on our website.
However, additional expenses have to be taken into planning the whole budget: fuel tanks and mooring fees, and food and drinks you need on board. Additionally, you need to pay a local tourist tax, and final cleaning.
Every person on the boat has to pay a local tax for the number of days traveling. This is payable in cash or by card at embarkation at the marina. Final cleaning is an obligatory extra and is usually charged together with the charter price.
We provide the vessel with full fuel tanks and you must refill them before arriving back to one of our bases in Split, Slano or Rogoznica for check-out.
Important: fees will be applied if the boat is not returned with a full fuel tank. This applies to the fuel tanks onboard the vessel as well as the generator.

What is included?

The yacht charter is fully insured and we charge a refundable security deposit at the check-in. The franchise amount is the highest amount we can charge in case of any damage. But, we highly recommend getting additional travel insurance for your motoboat charter in Croatia to further protect your crew and belongings.
