Choose your boat
If travelling on one of our Sailing Holidays you can choose from one of three styles of boat, each offering its own distinct level of comfort.
Classic boats offer cabins with private en suite bathrooms and Premium boats offer a more spacious cabin with en-suite bathroom. Deluxe boats are of the highest category being newly built and spacious with well-appointed cabins featuring twin or double beds.
We use motor sailer vessels for our Croatia Sailing Holidays as the motor enables the boat to navigate between the islands and keep to the itinerary without being reliant upon the wind, although the sails may go up on occasion. The boats have a dining area and plenty of deck space to relax and enjoy the spectacular views and sea breeze.
Relax as you let the captain and his support crew take care of all the logistics. An onboard cook prepares breakfast and lunch each day, whilst in the evening, we offer you the chance to explore dining options at our numerous ports of call. Dalmatian food is very good indeed!
Individual boat design varies slightly from craft to craft, but all sailing boats offer a range of cabin types (top deck/on deck and below deck), which comfortably accommodate two people. Below deck have a small porthole, while the advantage of upgrading to a top deck/on deck cabin is that there is direct access to the deck and they have opening windows or portholes for fresh air, sunlight and sea views.
Life onboard our boats is a relatively casual affair. Each cruise itinerary offers a mix of sailing, swim breaks and plenty of free time. Arriving into a different port of call each afternoon or evening, the boat docks for the night and you can go off and independently sightsee, shop, dine or enjoy drinks with your fellow passengers.
Our local captains and crew chart the boat, freshly prepare and serve your meals and help keep the boat clean and tidy. You'll be served a continental breakfast in the morning and lunch will typically consist of soup or pasta, a main course of chicken or fish with a side salad and a dessert. Dessert is usually seasonal fruits, ice cream or perhaps pancakes.
Classic boats are offered on all our sailing itineraries, and offer mostly twin bunk cabin accommodation, though dependent upon the craft, double-bedded cabins are sometimes available.
An exclusive feature of the Classic boat is that all cabins offer private en suite bathrooms. Additionally these boats offer towels, plenty of hot water, board games and ample shaded and sun deck space to lounge about.
Premium boats are a class above our Classic boats and are on offer each and every week on our Sailing Split and Cruise Dubrovnik holidays. Premium boats are also offered on most other trips most weeks of the season.
Premium boats offer a more spacious cabin with en-suite bathroom on newly built or fully renovated ships. Accommodation is mostly twin or double-bedded cabins, though bunk bed cabins are sometimes all that is available. Exclusive features of Premium boats include: air-conditioning in all cabins and in most of the common areas whilst sailing (no A/C is available when the boat is stationary), a guided sightseeing tour of Dubrovnik with an English speaking tour guide and a delicious Captain’s Feast.
Additionally, Premium boats offer plenty of hot water, towels, some linen, a TV and sound system in the reception area, board games and extensive sun and shaded deck space to lounge about.
Deluxe boats are a class above our Premium boats and are the vessel of choice on our Creme de la Croatia cruise. Deluxe boats are spacious newly built ships with well-appointed cabins featuring twin or double beds. All cabins have their own bathrooms, LCD TV and are air-conditioned. Deluxe boats also offer air-conditioning in most of the common areas whilst sailing (no a/c when boat is stationary), free Wi-Fi when in port, and have a spacious deck with sun loungers. Additionally, some Deluxe boats feature gym facilities and a plunge pool.
Exclusive features of our deluxe category include airport arrival and departure transfers from Split airport, an onboard English speaking tour leader to answer any questions you may have and provide commentary on the locations and sights you will see. There are also a guided sightseeing tours of Dubrovnik - including a dinner cruise and journey on a cable car, Hvar, Split and Korcula - including a wine tasting tour and a village feast. Plus, at the end of a wonderful week sailing all our deluxe cruises come to a close with a delicious Captain’s farewell dinner.
