In the last weeks, we have received a lot of questions about the coronavirus and yacht charter vacations for the coming summer holidays. We have some great news for all of you interested in chartering a yacht and sail Croatia:

Even though, this post COVID-19, is a summer with maximum safety precautions in place, motor boat rentals, catamaran rentals or sailing charters are among the safest and most exciting summer holidays options if not the safest and most exciting one this year. Especially in Croatia, since considered a very low-risk coronavirus Country.

Read the article till the end to find out everything you need to know about it in coronavirus times. And read it now, since there is a big rise in yacht charter inquiries and reservations for this year already, so you better hurry up with your booking too.

All the reasons yacht charter vacations while sailing Croatia (post-COVID-19) is the safest and one of the most spectacular options for your summer holidays:

  • Croatia had a very strict lockdown in past months, which resulted in a low-level coronavirus outburst and is currently considered a lower risk coronavirus (COVID-19) country.
  • Isolation on board of  your choosen boat is limited to people you choose and trust.
  • Groceries can and will be delivered onboard of your boat.
  • No need to go to restaurants if you don`t feel to. You can cook and eat on board.
  • The marine life took a huge break during the lockdown and has recovered from usual pollution: the sea is clearer, there is much more life in it, a lot more of fishes…
  • Open sea and fresh sea air improve your immune system and keep the germs away.
  • Less crowd or no crowd at all in best bays. It’s easier to keep away from other tourists if you sail around with your boat and seek out the most secluded lagoons and private beaches.
  • Full privacy onboard (in the open sea or the harbor). All the boats have everything you need for a private and hassle-free vacation, wouldn’t you agree?
  • A carefree post corona summer holidays without the possibility of unwanted contact with others. No need to bump into people on crowded beaches. You will have the whole boat just for you and your family. Easier to keep everyone safe!
  • Staying onboard protects yourself and others, so you can stock on a bit more food and water and spend a few days in total peace.
  • No unexpected visitors. You can be sure that while staying on a boat, you won’t be bothered unless you count all the fish that will come to check who’s visiting their bay.
  • This one is our favorite - your boat will become your home and you won’t want to leave after your vacation is over!
  • Reachability by car from all EU states. There’s no need for unwanted contact here either. Pack your car, drive more or less straight to our marina in Sibenik, and sail away!

The boat was in a good condition and the service of the crew was great. Kike responded very promptly on our questions while sailing.

See you again!
