In some cases, even seasoned sailors opt for a skippered charter to enhance their enjoyment, particularly during regattas or other special occasions.

With a skipper on board, you benefit from their invaluable local knowledge of the sailing area, effectively transforming your skippered charter into a guided expedition.

What is the cost of hiring a skipper?

The fee for hiring a skipper generally ranges from 160€ to 200€ per day, with variations based on factors like the boat's length and additional considerations.

Who covers the skipper's meals?

When hiring a skipper, the client is responsible for covering the skipper's fees, which includes compensation for their services as well as their meals. Whether meals are prepared on board or enjoyed at a restaurant, it is the client's responsibility to ensure the skipper's meal expenses are covered. This ensures that the skipper is adequately provided for throughout the charter, allowing them to focus on their duties and ensuring a safe and enjoyable sailing experience for all on board.

Where does the skipper sleep on a boat?

Skippers typically require their own accommodation on board. When chartering a yacht with a skipper or hostess, it's recommended to select a yacht equipped with separate crew cabins. If the boat layout does not include designated crew quarters, it's customary to allocate one cabin for the skipper. While some skippers may resort to sleeping in the saloon, if necessary, it's not advisable as crew member needs sufficient rest to provide optimal service.

What is the safety deposit for when hiring a boat with a skipper?

When renting a boat with a skipper, a safety deposit is still required as a precautionary measure. This deposit ensures that in the event of damage caused by the crew's fault, such as a broken window or door, there are funds available to cover repair costs.

How is the refundable deposit handled?

The refundable deposit is typically charged to a credit card, although cash may also be accepted. Once the boat is returned and a technical check-out is conducted with the skipper, the deposit amount will be unblocked or returned to the client. This deposit covers damages not included in the insurance coverage, such as a lost dinghy or broken window.

What happens if there is damage to the boat during the skippered yacht charter?

In the event of any damage, it is crucial to report it immediately to the support number provided. Depending on the extent of the damage and responsibility, the deposit may be used to cover repair costs. If the damage is minor and falls within the safety deposit amount, the remaining balance will be unblocked or refunded accordingly. If the damage is the skipper's fault, their insurance covers the costs, and the full deposit will be returned to the client.

Who are Skippers?

Skippers are seasoned professionals crucial for ensuring the safety and smooth operation of your sailing holiday. With extensive experience navigating the Croatian coastline, they possess intimate knowledge of sailing factors like currents, tides, and winds. This enables them to adapt swiftly to changing weather conditions, ensuring your safety, and enhancing your overall experience. Skippers also double as mentors for budding yachting enthusiasts, eager to share their wealth of experience and transform your journey into a hands-on learning experience.

Furthermore, skippers serve as local guides, unveiling hidden gems and must-visit destinations along the Croatian coastline. Whether you seek secluded coves for relaxation or vibrant nightlife hotspots, your skipper's insider knowledge ensures every moment of your voyage is curated to perfection.

With our team of highly experienced professionals, all native Croatians fluent in multiple languages, aged between 30-50 years, you can trust that your skipper will handle the technical aspects of the boat and provide invaluable guidance on route planning, mooring, and weather conditions. Your safety, comfort, and satisfaction are our top priorities, ensuring an unforgettable charter experience.
