Croatia is a charterer's paradise with quaint seaside villages, historic towns, islands and harbours to explore at convenient intervals. And chartering a traditional gulet or motorsailer with warm and welcoming Croatian crew provides you with the most authentic cultural experience ever. But don't leave it too long to book – many of the gulets are already booked for the 2018 season!
Traditionally used as fishing boats modern gulets are both safe and comfortable. From the impeccably crafted, solid timber boat and dedicated crew to the delectable cuisine, you will be immersed in the warm, welcoming flavours of the Croatian way of life. A Gulet charter experience goes hand-in-hand with enjoying the authentic local hospitality on board as well as the sights, ambience and layers of history only accessible by yacht. Their popularity is without question and there are many reasons for this.
These motorsailers are big volume boats with four to eight well-appointed cabins each with their own ensuite providing comfortable living for 6 to 12 / 14 guests. With sweeping pointed bows, wide side decks and generous large aft decks they also provide plenty of space for socialising and relaxing under the warm Mediterranean sun. Some even boast on deck jacuzzis!
The CRUISING AREA
Your Gulet charter itinerary will very likely take you exploring the Dalmatian coastline and islands, between Split and Dubrovnik, both world heritage UNESCO sites. Split is Croatia's second-largest city and entices charter guests ashore with its unique edifices, palace, modern shops, fresh local seafood and culinary tradition. Dubrovnik is a fortified city, known as the 'Pearl of the Adriatic', a Medieval wonder abounding in history and culture.
In between these two great pillars are the beautiful and friendly Dalmatian islands with historic seaside towns and sleepy fishing villages such as Sipan, the national park of Mljet, Korcula the home of Marco Polo, a "mini' Dubrovnik and Hvar a hub of cultural activity, with galleries, bars and restaurants; the picturesque Elafiti Islands with their numerous bays, perfect for dropping anchor and spending the day swimming and snorkelling.
The PACE of LIFE
Charter gulets are perfect for people who want a hassle-free, relaxed and comfortable sailing holiday. A huge benefit of chartering a luxury gulet for your vacation is that you are able to customise the itinerary to suit the type of holiday you are looking for. Whether you want to visit as many of the major historical towns en-route as possible or you prefer quiet anchorages with the opportunity to indulge in fun watersports or simply soak up the sun with a good book the choice is yours.
Luxury Charter Group's Gulets come with a professional full-time crew with lots of local knowledge and a genuine passion for what they do. They love their country and love the opportunity to share it with you. You luxury gulet is your own private hotel afloat with attentive crew always on hand to ensure you receive 5-star service. Your Captain and his crew are there to advise on the best anchorages, as well as help arrange on-shore excursions and give you personalised instruction on the watersports.
We think food is an important part of any holiday. There is always an experienced Chef onboard your Gulet providing you with mouth-watering meals using the freshest of local ingredients. A food and beverages package is tailored to your preferences with full and half board options available. We have no doubt that you will enjoy the Croatian and Mediterranean flavours and savour the seafood and culinary creations of your onboard Chef.
Memories are made of this – A gulet charter is an ideal way to spend quality time with friends and family. Step back in time together as you explore ancient sites, quaint villages and moorings where impressive cliff faces sprinkled with pine trees meet the stuning turquoise sea. Completely in harmony with your surroundings, your Gulet creates the ambience of your charter vacation providing picturesque images that will remain with you for a lifetime.
