Do I need sailing experience to rent a sailboat?
Yes, you need a sailing license to rent a boat. If you do not have a license, you can only be a crew member. If you have a valid license but have little or no experience, we advise you to book one of our trained and popular skippers to enjoy a carefree holiday. This is, for example, also possible for only one day to get safety in handling the boat. The skipper is basically responsible for the boat.
What qualifications are required by a skipper?
The skipper must have a valid license for the size and tonnage of the boat, which is required for the yacht in question under Croatian maritime law. A VHF license is also a requirement.

How do i get to the marina and how do I find my boat?
You can order a transfer to the marina at firstname.lastname@example.org . In this case, you will be picked up at the arrival terminal at the airport and taken directly to your boat. If you arrive by car, we will ask for the license plate number of up to 2 cars that will receive a free parking space and you will receive a free entry ticket by email. As soon as you have arrived in our marina, please go to the charter office (you will receive basic information after receipt of the final payment) and our local staff will help you. If you arrive after 7 pm, we will leave the boat open for you and leave you a message at the office door. Check-In will be the next morning.
When do I get access to the boat?
The standard check-in time is after 5 pm. If you want to check in earlier, we recommend that you order this directly when booking. The number of earlier check-ins is limited and will then take place at 1 pm, provided that the booked boat is returned without damage by the precharterer. This gives you the opportunity to run out before everyone else.
How does the check-in procedure work?
When you arrive at the marina, it is best to go directly to the base office to complete the formalities. As soon as your boat is cleaned, technically serviced and prepared for you and your crew, you can go on board. You will be accompanied by a techical employee responsible for the boat and checked in. After inspection of the boat, and if you do not need further help from the technician, you are ready to sail. At the check-in, you will also receive instructions on important fuses and how to operate the specific model. You will also receive instructions on how to use the toilet, holding tank and liquid gas. If you have any problems or something is not clear, please ask. If you find any malfunctions, simply call our service. As soon as you have signed the takeover protocol, note any damage so that you do not have to clarify this at check-out. When you check-out, you go through the boat again and get the opportunity to rate our service.
Who is responsible for damages to the boat?
It is always the skipper who bears full responsibility for the boat, so we recommend to make a skipper insurance. If you book a professional skipper, he is responsible for all damages on board. At the destinations where we offer an All-Inclusive package, the damage is covered by the package fee, and in the destinations where we have the comfort package, the damage is covered by the deposit. In the event of damage that is attributable to gross negligence, you have to discuss the costs with the respective base manager at check-out in our office.
When should I return the boat?
The boat should be returned to the port the evening before check-out, usually Friday until 6 pm. Check-Out can take place on Friday evening, as long as it is bright, or on Saturday morning. Of course, you have full access to the boat until 9 o‘ clock the next morning (usually on Saturday).
Do I have to clean the boat before I return it?
Swept clean would be desirable. The boat should be in same condition in which you found it, that means, the dishes should be cleaned up and the garbage disposed of. Don’t forget your personal belongings! We wish you a wonderful holiday on board!

What is important to take with you on a boat
The storage space on a boat is limited. Depending on the chartered boat and the number of guests on the boat, it can get quite crowded. The last thing you want is to stumble over a lot of travel bags. The best choice is definitely to pack everything in a travel bag (not a suitcase). By the way, you should pack your travel documents first. Making copies of your documents and keeping them separate from the originals in case you lose something is a good idea. Keep in mind that you really don’t need a lot of clothes for the vacation. Most of the time you spend on the boat relaxing with friends and / or family and swimming in the sea. It is therefore more important to have additional bathing suits and a beach towel with you. For one week of sailing vacation we recommend the following packing list: 3 swimsuits or 3 swimshorts, 7 t-shirts (plus: whatever you buy on your trip), sandals and walking shoes (either tennis- or boat shoes that can get wet), enough underwear for a week, sleepwear, a light wind jacket, a beach towel, personal hygiene items, backpack or belt bag, sunglasses, passport, travel guide, suncream, medicines you need, small emergency equipment (plasters, painkillers, blister plasters, nail file, scissors)
