Yacht Charter Companies
Before choosing which company to hire your sail boat from, there are certain factors which should be taken into consideration. It goes without saying that the costs should be within your price range and that quality and a high standard of maintenance and seaworthiness are guaranteed.
It might be advantageous to go with a local company as opposed to one of the bigger foreign firms that operate in Croatia. A local firm can often offer impartial advice on sailing destinations and as they have people working for them who know the area inside out, they can often tell you about the hidden away beauty spots that others might miss.
Make sure the company you intend to hire your sailboat from is willing to take the time and effort to ensure all your personal needs are met. They should be available to you 24 hours a day in case there are any problems, and be willing to be flexible and adaptable to ensure you have the best chartered sailing experience Croatia has to offer.
