CREWED YACHT CHARTER CROATIA
Crewed yacht charter is a type of charter where you book a yacht, a professional skipper to sail it for you and a hostess to take care of the cleanliness and eating/drinking onboard. It delivers the ultimate holiday experience on the water since there will be nothing for you to do but enjoy at your own pace, on your own schedule: swimming, sunbathing, snorkelling, fishing, sightseeing, eating, drinking... Continue the list yourself with your preferred holiday activities.
The itinerary is flexible, up to you to decide, the skipper will take you wherever you want provided that the weather conditions allow it.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT BOAT
All of our boats - Bavaria 37 Cruiser, Bavaria Cruiser 41, Bavaria 45 Cruiser and Elan Impression 494 - can be chartered with the crew consisting of a skipper and a hostess, but when planning crewed charter calculate that both the skipper and the hostess need a berth, ideally their own cabin.
The cost of the crewed yacht charter consists of the boat price and the crew's fees, while for the mooring fees, fuel and meals (onboard & outboard), for both you and the crew, you pay on the way, depending on how much you spend.
In order to provide you with the best holiday experience, with the crewed charter the greatest attention is paid to the selection of the crew. Apart from professionalism and „know how“ engaged are only the highly motivated and easy going individuals with a friendly personality and a good knowledge of the history and geography of the sailing area, in short, the real ambassadors of their country, its natural and historical heritage, its culture and people.
Hostess will be buying groceries and drinks, preparing two meals, breakfast and lunch (or dinner) as per your preferences.
Close to the start of your charter you will receive our charter preference form where you will fill in your charter preferences, most of which refer to the food and drinks.
The hostess can do initial provisioning by herself or according to your preferences and put it all onboard before your arrival in the marina. In this case, you refund her as per the bill presented. However, if you would wish, you can always accompany her to the store.
Please note that you also pay for the crew's meals, both the meals onboard and out. Hostess's duties include the preparation of two meals, breakfast and lunch or dinner, while the third meal is usually had in the restaurant of your choice. For a meal out, you can give the crew an upfront stipend in the amount of 30€ per person or simply cover the restaurant bill that they present to you.
