What to expect on our Croatia sailing holidays

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 ships 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 ship design varies slightly from craft to craft, but all sailing ships 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 on board our ships 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 ship 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 ship, 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.
