Croatia is Ready!

After cruising around 7 different Marinas in just a few days, and seeing all the yachts that are out on show and available for next summer, we can assure you Croatia is ready!

Whilst the season is slowly coming to a close over here in Zadar (even before we've got the yachts listed on our site), real care and attention is being given to each and every yacht as the owners (our charter partners) batten down the hatches ahead of the cold, wet and windy winter.

We've seen sails being taken off, floors being lifted and properly scrubbed, and even TV screens being put in ahead of Euro 2016!  They are pulling out all the stops to ensure the yachts will be upto scratch by the time the weather thaws and the crowds start arriving next April, which means one thing - happy customers chartering yachts in Croatia come the summer season!

In spite of the miserable weather, we've been taken out on a few boats, and the highlight has to be the Lagoon 52 Catamaran we were sunbathing on, on Monday!  With space to hold three different parties, all at the same time, the 52 is the party boat of next season, and even comes with an ice-maker ON DECK!?  It's expensive to charter, but will be available soon, and is well worth a look if you want to spoil yourselves!?

We've also seen a 20-year old little Bavaria that is in great shape, and at a great price, that would be ideal for a family sail in the summer - a wide master bedroom, with two smaller cabins to the aft, to stop the kids from squabbling with each-other!  Solar power means that you don't have to be too careful about charging your various gadgets and devices, and the fact that it can be easily handled by a team of two, comes complete with safety netting and harnesses, and is available from Trogir (just 10 minutes from Split airport) all make this a fantastic option.  Watch out for it when it goes up online in the next few weeks!
