Cruising on Board a Charter Yacht into Rovinj, Croatia

2019-12-07T14:40:32-05:00

Rovinj Old Town, Croatia

Rovinj Old Town, Croatia

Cruise into Rovinj Harbor on your charter yacht and enjoy a traditional fishing village on the Istrian Peninsula in northern Croatia where a copper statue of their Patron Saint, St. Euphemia points out to sea when the weather is good for fishing, and into town when weather is poor, and no fisherman should leave the harbor.  All locals abide by what their good St. Euphemia tells them and only leave the harbor to fish when the statue, perched on the top of the bell tower of the Church of St. Euphemia on the highest point of land in town, points out to sea.  And it is wise, when on a charter yacht, to take heed of St. Euphemia’s message as well as St. Euphemia is the Patron Saint of Rovinj after she in her sarcophagus floated into the harbor sometime in 900 A.D., some say from a spectral ship.

Hvar Island Town in Croatia

Planning a trip to Croatia? This beautiful country boasts hundreds of islands, 10 World Heritage sites, and thousands of miles of pristine coast. In particular, five destinations get top marks from visitors. Dubrovnik, for example, is called the “Pearl of the Adriatic.” Enjoy European boutique shopping, magnificent palaces, and cobblestone streets filled with living history. 

Did you know that most of these locations can also be discovered, explored, and enjoyed on a private crewed yacht charter? In fact, the Blue Cave on Bisevo is most easily seen by private yacht charter. Your captain can arrange for a private tour boat to come to the swim platform of your charter yacht to take you into the beautiful Blue Cave, rather than seeing the Cave by ticket on a public tour boat.

To learn more about some of the country’s top must-visit locations, check out this article. Whichever spot you choose, you’ll enjoy the sublime sights, sounds, and tastes of Croatia.

Croatia Gulet Itinerary Kotor, Montenegro to Split, Croatia

2019-10-30T14:32:43-04:00

Split, Croatia

Split, Croatia

This Croatia Gulet Itinerary from Kotor, Montenegro to Split Croatia, is a terrific one week itinerary to enjoy the highlights of both Montenegro and Croatia on a typical charter yacht available in Croatia, the Croatian Gulet.  Gulets are large, usually wooden motorsailors, that are very wide with a large amount of interior living space and wide open decks providing a lot of onboard deck space.  While there are masts and sails, because Gulets are heavy and wide, usually the sails, if ever raised are used to steady the yacht, and the engines are used to move the yacht from place to place.  A Gulet should really be viewed as a large comfortable platform with a lot of interior and deck space from which to enjoy the Croatian islands and coast that moves mainly under engine power.  Because Gulets are built of wood, they usually have beautifully varnished wooden interiors, with high overheads, and large ensuite bathrooms.  Gulets are a great pricing value usually with at least 4 crew for full service including a private Chef.  Although Gulets move under engine power, the engine speed is often no more than 10 miles an hour, which means that the itinerary should be carefully considered to assure that the highlights of the area can be seen on an itinerary that does not require long cruising periods.  The following itinerary was organized specifically for a charter on board a Croatian Gulet.

Yacht Charter in Croatia, Hunting the Elusive White and Black Truffle

2019-10-21T10:47:16-04:00

Yacht Charter in Croatia and Hunting the Elusive White and Black Truffle

Truffle Hunting in the Motovun Forest

Yacht Charter in Croatia is not complete, if you are a Truffle aficionado, without having White and Black Truffle dishes on board your charter yacht during your yacht charter.  As up north in Istria, Croatia, deep in the Motovun Forest, both White and Black Truffles grow in the roots of oak, poplar, willow, beech, birch, and pine trees. Croatians for generations have hunted the elusive White and Black Truffles, that were hunted once with trained pigs and now are hunted with specially trained dogs.  What is still a very reasonable marketplace for Truffles in Croatia allows any yacht charter chef in Croatia to easily include Truffles in dishes on board a yacht charter when cruising through the beautiful waters of Croatia without breaking the bank, or needing to pull out the weighing machine to weigh each slice of this aromatic root fungus that might appear on top of dishes placed in front of you when on board.
