This was our first time in both Croatia and sailing, and based on this wonderful week it certainly won’t be the last.
Check in was relatively straight forward and the boat was perfect. We could not have been luckier or asked for a better Skipper than Mateo Gašperov. Right from the start Mateo immediately made us all feel comfortable that we were in safe hands - not only in terms of sailing but also helping us to get the most from the holiday. He took the time to see what we wanted to do and helped and advised an itinerary that delivered on it. When marinas were busy he managed to still find a way to get us where we wanted and then gave great advice on where to eat and what to do there.
As a family of 5 with 3 teenage daughters, it is not always easy to keep everyone happy and comfortable, but Mateo was easy-going, friendly and professional throughout. He let us do our own thing but was always there when we needed him, with a big smile and a helpful attitude.
All in all, we had a great holiday and would definitely recommend both the experience and Mateo to others!

An absolutely epic week on a great boat but what made it most special was skipper Nikola Palada who was a true hero. I took a week from Dubrovnik to Split with my 2 kids (16 & 22) and Nikola planned each 2 days ahead to make sure we hit all the wonderful spots (and also constantly checking weather, wind etc on an array of hi tech apps but it seemed like he was the kind of guy who could do it without apps too if needed) He sussed all the best places to eat for us and organised (booked ahead so they were prepared for our visit) He was never intrusive but always on hand. We made a true friend in the skipper too, often hanging out in the evenings with him. Such a nice chap! And Croatia, Incredible. GVOs.

What an unbelievable vacation! We researched many many different boats and crews, and it was a true gift to have Nikola Palada and Ivona Jerkovic as our crew. Nikola tailored our week in Croatia to suit every request we had, while adding his own personal suggestions (which were all on point). Nikola truly capitalized our week making sure we experienced a good mix of the different things Croatia had to offer. Nikola offered local tips and knowledge that made our vacation in to a truly unique and memorable experience- it honestly wouldn’t have been the same without him. Ivona was kind, professional, hard-working, and so much more than a hostess, she was a top level chef! The meals she created for our group were some of the best meals I have ever had. These 2 and their attention to detail, organization, knowledge and personable, friendly demeanour made our week an unforgettable vacation. Thank you!!

Our little sailing group took a sailing charter trip in Croatia from Dubrovnik to Split with Island hoping along the way. Mario Kuzmanic, the Reservation Agent was fantastic! He always answered his phone every time I called to asked questions and gave great suggestions and planning advice that put us at ease. He is very well organized and detailed.
We had the good fortune to get Alen Banovac as our Skipper on a Lagoon 52. He was really a great person to be around and extremely professional. His experience and knowledge of the maritime industry in Croatia and Europe in general was unbelievably valuable to us. He knows every island and part of his country reachable by boat like the back of his hand as well as all the people we needed to know at every marina, port or mooring; not to mention all the best swimming spots! He was constantly working, like a 5-star concierge, in the background to get us the best mooring spots and dinner reservations at the best restaurants. I was impressed with his direct demeanor, and he has a great sense of humor too!
We are relatively novice sailors and he taught us a lot of tricks of his trade and was a patient teacher in teaching us the med-mooring and handling of the boat when parking in tight and tricky situations. He also has a great knowledge of the excellent foods and wines of his country. If you are going on a charter sailing trip to Croatia for the 1st time and are debating on getting a skipper or not…. Well, if you can work with Mario and Alen, they will help make it a top notch, stress-free vacation of a lifetime.

Overall we had a wonderful trip but our contact, Mario, left much to be desired in terms of clarity and communication. While responsive leading up to our trip there were a lot of things that were not clearly explained about how the yachting rental process works, suggestions about how to prepare and some flat our bad information was provided related to boarding time and amenities that would be included on the boat (there were NONE).

We had a major issue with the blackwater pump that completely ruined our first night because the prior passenger waste kept flowing back and the tank wouldn't empty. How that wasn't identified before we boarded is really insane given the horrible smell. That same night one of the a/c units stopped working making it unbearably hot on two of the bedrooms. When reaching out to this company they refused to respond to me. They did communicate to the skipper who was able to in turn get with the charter company Pitter and it was resolved the following morning but the fact that it even happened and ruined 1 of our 6 nights is a big issue for us and the fact that Mario wouldn't even respond to me is inexcusable.

Once that was resolved the rest of the week was great. Our skipper, Mateo Gasperov did a great job of ensuring we got to our priority destinations. Mateo clearly cared about our satisfaction and constantly checked in to make sure we were happy with the trip. I do wish we had gotten more insight into the history and culture of the locations we were visiting, but the Skippers in general I think are NOT the "tour guide" that Mario claimed they would be.

I'd be happy to recommend Mateo as a skipper but would not necessarily suggest this company is the one you have to use nor Pitter as the charter company given the hiccups we had.

My wife and I chartered a catamaran for our honeymoon out of ACI Marina Dubrovnik in Croatia in mid September. Our contact Mario made the process of booking the trip as easy as possible. Even though we live in the US, Mario would promptly respond to us, even at 2 AM Croatian time due to the time difference.

Our skipper was Felip and our hostess was Valentina. Felip knew the Dalmatian coast like the back of his hand. He created an itinerary that allowed us to see some of the most beautiful islands we could ever imagine like Sipan, Mjlet, Korcula and others. He made sure that we were comfortable and having a good time at every moment.

Valentina gave us a taste of Croatian home cooking with a gourmet flare that was able to rival any five star restaurant. Her podusene squid was absolutely to die for, and her scrambled eggs and huge breakfast spread in the morning were equally as impressive.

Felip and Valentina made this the trip of a lifetime that my wife and I will remember for the rest of our lives. If you have the opportunity to charter with Europe/Croatia Yachts Charters then don't think twice.

Our sailing trip was Awesome! We sailed from Dubrovnik up the coast island hopping all the way to Split, Croatia. This week long trip was set up by Mario Kuzmanic who after listening to what we were looking for, took it from there. Mario gave us a fantastic Yacht to sail with everything expected in a 5 star hotel. Mario also set us up with our Skipper, Alen Banovac. Alen was the best choice possible to captain our trip. He was the ultimate professional in every aspect, from boat operations to anything we could possibly want or need. Alen’s knowledge of the places to see and coves to swim in was absolutely unbelievable. He took care of all reservations and marina contacts effortlessly, and knew the best restaurants with the best views at every stop along the way. Alen also each morning seemed to have several options for that specific day for us to choose from along with his expert recommendation. It’s hard to describe how wonderful a trip to this lovely country with the most friendly people you ask for really is, but having Mario and Alen guiding us was simply perfect!

We chartered a Lagoon 40 for 4 of us, 2 adults and 2 teens and had a wonderful time.
Our skipper Teo was fantastic. Even if you can sail yourself I recommend a skipper as he got us into bays we would have missed and marinas that were full unless you had local contacts.
Croatia has a beautiful coast line and we will be back to explore more of it.

After amazing week on sailboat, I can honestly say that this was a great experience.
Our skipper was Filip Dumancic, and he did a great job, to make us feel safe, informed, and entertained. He is great with kids, and with him, we felt like we have one more friend on board, instead of skipper.
Nature is beautiful, and this nature deserves to be visited by sailboat.
Great vacation

If you are thinking about a yacht charter in Croatia THIS is the company to go with! I did a lot of research and spoke to many brokers about boat options and Mario was incredibly helpful and responsive. However, what really made our trip special was our Skipper Filip Dumancic and our gourmet chef Ivona Jerkovic. These two are very special and made our family feel so cared for and comfortable. Filip is a total history buff and knows so much about the islands and every village and shared great info as we visited each place. He is an expert skipper and made sailing a Bali 48 catamaran like a walk in the park. We were blown away by Ivona's cooking. She is so talented, warm, fun to be around and surprised us every day with new healthy meals. We looked forward to sitting down together every day to eat! Filip mapped out our plan each day and shared many options for us to pick from which made it so fun. Every island is so different, every swimming cove has its own special features. He made reservations for us at his favorite restaurants and made us feel like family. This was one of the best family vacations we ever took! A+ start to finish from booking to execution.
