According to Croatian maritime law, at least one person on the boat (skipper) must possess a valid license to operate a boat or yacht (skipper license) issued by the competent state authority.
In addition to the skipper's license, it is required to have a VHF / Radio license. As for VHF / Radio licenses, there is no special requirement only condition is that skipper or any of the members on the boat must possess it.
Skipper licenses recognized by Croatia authority you can check at the following link: https://mmpi.gov.hr/UserDocsImages/arhiva/TABLICA%20MoU-HR%207-10_15.pdf
If your license is not listed, then you do not possess the required license to rent a boat or yacht in Croatia. It is possible to take the exam at the Port Authority in Zadar(https://www.port-authority-zadar.hr/) and obtain a skipper or VHF license. Exams are usually organized two times a week on Wednesday and Friday afternoons.
