If you have special recreational interests your crew will advise on where to go and how to get involved. Their local networks let them know what's happening in your destination, and importantly they have insider info on where to get the best fresh produce from land and sea!

We will also arrange full advance provisioning of the boat if required. Your contract is directly with the skipper through the charter operator. 

When enquiring about this boat, please ask us about a paid crew, and we can discuss all the benefits in more detail.

"The highlight of our Croatia charter was actually having a skipper who could make berthing arrangements at each place we visited. Toni was fantastic. He would also make restaurant recommendations and bookings as well. He took the stress of decision-making away which meant we had a much better experience at each island we visited. Everything flowed!"
