WHY CHARTER IN SPLIT
Island hopping during your yacht charter in Split is the best kind of charter vacation you can ever get. Split is the largest Croatian city on the Adriatic coast, from there you can visit almost the whole country and have the cruise of your life. Moreover, you can opt for just a few nearby islands and enjoy pure comfort and privacy.
We recommend you to visit the nearby islands: Hvar, Vis, Šolta, Korčula, Biševo, Brač and many more full of secluded coves and magnificent beaches. You will be amazed at how close these islands are and how peacefully the Croatian Adriatic sea is on your yacht charter in Split.
If you are a history buff, you will adore yacht charter in Split. Since the Roman emperor, Diocletian decided to build a palace in Split, where he wanted to spend the last years of his life in tranquillity, the legend of Split has survived for 17 centuries.
During those 1700 years, the Palace grew into a city, which now fascinates travellers with its rich history, exquisite architecture, and natural and cultural heritage. In 1979th, UNESCO added the 4th century Diocletian Palace and the Split’s historical centre to the World Heritage List.
WHEN TO CHARTER IN SPLIT
Whenever you are ready for the perfect yacht charter! Yachting season in Croatia is between April and November and it has ideal cruising conditions. If you want to swim, snorkel and play with water toys during your yacht charter in Split, we recommend visiting it from May to September.
This period we can divide into three parts: the heart of the season – July and August, middle season – May, June and September and low season – April and November.
For those who prefer warm summers and cities brimming with life, the middle of the season is perfect. What’s even better is that even on the busiest day of the year, you can always discover a private beach with your yacht charter in Split and enjoy complete privacy.
Additionally, you will get the chance to visit the Ultra Music Festival, one of Europe’s largest music events, where you will be able to hear the sounds of Carl Cox, Afrojack, Armin van Buuren, Hardwell, and many others.
For this time of the year, everything you will need is a swimsuit, light summer clothes and a good mood. Relax and let your crew and SuperYachts Croatia team take care of everything else. All you have to do is swim, sunbathe on your yacht deck, have a blast with water toys and explore the turquoise crystal clear Adriatic sea in countless secluded bays.
The low season is when temperatures are between 18 and 21 degrees Celsius (65 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit), which is best for people who do not like when it is too hot. The sea is calm and the winds are mild and ideal for your yacht charter in Split.
If you want to experience the real yacht charter in Split, connect to locals, watch soccer games, or appreciate the coffee culture, the low season is the best time of year to visit this magical city.
HOW TO GET TO SPLIT
Getting to your yacht charter in Split is simple. After the capital city – Zagreb, Split is Croatia’s second-largest travel centre and you can reach it easily with your private jet, car, and yacht.
Because of the number of tourists, in the middle of the season, it is truly hard to find a free parking slot so that is why you have us. If you need a parking place for your car, your local broker from the Superyacht Croatia team will take care of it.
Moreover, we can arrange a special transfer with an exclusive car or helicopter (if your yacht has a helipad) so you will avoid traffic jams and also enjoy panoramic views with the glass of your favourite champagne.
Split Airport is only 20 km away, so you can be on your yacht in less than half-hour. The Split airport is well-connected and provides direct flights to and from the Middle East, as well as many European places.
What is even better is that we can organize everything from a plane or private jet to a limo, Mercedes S-class, or a specially adorned vehicle.

If you are a party person you will also enjoy this place – dance in the Laganini bar or the Carpe Diem club with a bottle of your favourite champagne or the best Croatian wine. This is the most popular yacht charter party place.
After the party, we recommend your cruise around the island of Hvar – the sunniest Croatian island with 2700 hours of sunshine a year. There you can explore a fortress called Fortica built in the early 16th century, Franciscan monastery, purple fields of lavender and much more.
If you decide to have your fine dining on the island we recommend a Gariful restaurant located right in front of your lovely yacht. For a night party, you can walk only one minute from your yacht and you will be in Carpe diem – one of the best Croatian nightclubs where both locals and tourists like to party.
Day 5: Island Hvar – island Brač
Have you ever heard about a beach that is changing its shape due to winds? One of the most popular Croatian beaches – Zlatni rat is located exactly on this stunning island.
The island of Brač is the largest central Dalmatian island and the third largest island in the Croatian Adriatic Sea. Surrounded by magical bays and covered with pine and cypress forests, Brač is one of the most beautiful Croatian islands, which is often covered by renowned foreign media.
Recently, Business Insider included it on its list of “100 under-the-radar islands in the world that must be visited at least once in a lifetime’’.
This charming and typical Dalmatian fishing village has turned into an attractive tourist destination. You can berth your yacht in the old port and enjoy a lot of lovely restaurants and bars.
