Our Croatian office is based at Marina Lav in Split, which is a small marina but is very nicely incorporated with Hotel Le Meridien Lav, one of the newest hotels in that area. A few of our charter yachts are based here. It’s a great spot because it is in the middle of the Adriatic coast, and some of the most beautiful islands in Croatia are very close to Split.
Another important note is that the fuel is duty free in Montenegro, which makes the fuel expense slightly lower. We recommend that the yacht fill in Montenegro and cruise in Croatia.
Yachts cruising in/out of Croatia need to stop in Cavtat to complete customs paperwork. During the high season it can get very busy and guests might have to wait a while, so we suggest that guests take advantage of Cavtat bay and village, which, in my opinion, is like the St. Tropez of Croatia. There are a lot of good restaurants, the bay is wonderful for swimming and the nightlife atmosphere is really something special. I would suggest staying in that bay for at least one night.
When cruising in Croatia, plan to visit as many islands as possible. The ACI (state) marinas are well equipped and organised, but try to stay at anchor as much as you can.
Many of the bays are well protected and you can easily find shelter. A good captain will know where to take you if the weather is bad. One-to-two nights in the marina is fine, but definitely take advantage of the many small, unspoiled bays that allow you to be completely on your own. Your own private bay? These days, that is very difficult to find.
Don’t hesitate to get insiders’ tips from your captain and locals. Captains will know where to take you. Croatians are very proud and will give you good information if you simply ask.
