Requirements for bareboat charter

All charter companies in the country require you to hold at least one of these sailing certificates: The Certificate of Competency for a Skipper B or C category (for operating vessels up to 30 tones gross weight for personal needs, including a charter, within the territorial waters of the Republic of Croatia for Category B, that is for business purposes regardless of the maritime zone for Category C) or the Certificate of Competency for a Yacht-Master.  It is a Croatia requirement that you must also have successfully finished a GMDSS-VHF radio course. This is something that can be completed in a single day at certified centres. Otherwise we can provide you with a local professional skipper and other crew members like hostess and chef to take care of you and make your sailing holidays to remember.
