Croatia is a beautiful country with a rich culture and stunning coastline, making it the perfect destination for a yacht charter. And when it comes to enjoying a meal onboard, there's nothing quite like getting excited about a BBQ. The warm sun, the sound of the waves, and the delicious food all come together to create a truly memorable experience. When you're planning your yacht charter in Croatia, one of the things you'll want to think about is the type of cuisine you'll be enjoying onboard. While there are plenty of fine dining options available, there's something special about firing up the grill and enjoying a casual BBQ meal. Whether you're grilling up some local seafood or some delicious meats, the flavours and aromas are sure to be amazing.

When planning a BBQ on a yacht,  one of the first things that come to mind is the type of grill the chef will be using. Some yachts come equipped with built-in grills, while others may require the crew to set up a portable grill. The crew will also make sure that the BBQ station has everything needed to make your BBQ session a success, like tongs, spatulas, skewers, and a brush for marinating the meats.

Another thing to consider when planning a BBQ on a yacht charter is the type of food you wish to sample. Croatia is known for its delicious seafood, so you will definitely want to include some local fish and shellfish on your menu, with popular choices including grilled squid, octopus, and shrimp. You can also find some delicious meats like pork, lamb, and beef. And do not forget to mention to the chef to include some vegetarian options like fresh vegetables similar to bell peppers, zucchini, and eggplant.

When you give the word, the chef will start the BBQ, making sure that the grill is preheated and cleaned. Being the professional that he is, your Michelin-level chef will also have a spray bottle of water handy in case of any flare-ups. Once the grill is heated, the incredible scents of grilled produce will immediately envelop your yacht charter.

One of the best things about having a BBQ on a yacht charter in Croatia is that you can enjoy the beautiful scenery while you eat. You can ask the captain to anchor in a secluded bay or a picturesque harbour and enjoy the views while you dine. The warm sun, the sound of the waves, and the delicious food all come together to create a truly memorable experience.

When your food is ready, the crew will serve it up so you can enjoy your alfresco meal. Do not forget to enjoy some chilled champagne to wash everything down, while taking in the beautiful scenery and enjoying the company of your family and friends.

First, you will need to decide on the format of the tournament. Will it be a single-elimination bracket or a round-robin format? Will there be teams or will it be individuals competing? Once you have decided on the format, your diligent yacht crew will create a schedule and assign teams or individuals to specific grilling stations. It is also important to have a clear set of rules and guidelines for the tournament to ensure that everyone is on the same page.

Next, your crew will prepare and gather all of the necessary equipment and supplies for the tournament. This will likely include grills, utensils, charcoal or propane, and a variety of meats and vegetables.

Finally, make sure to have a prize for the winner, it can be a simple trophy, a bottle of champagne, or a special dessert course. This will make the competition more exciting and it will give the teams a reason to give their best.
