Share a Yacht Holidays in Croatia

Share a Yacht or "Pot Luck" holidays are for experienced sailors, often traveling on their own and who are happy to share with others to make up the crew of a yacht. These holidays are not intended for beginners, or those with only very limited sailing experience (we offer the Learn to Sail option for those people) and ideally anybody choosing one of these options should be at a basic skippering level. You sail as part of a flotilla with the emphasis on good sailing by day with the social side of a flotilla in the evenings. These trips are particularly suited to newly qualified skippers looking to get experience of being in charge themselves, and are a very cost effective way of having a sailing holiday.

How the Programme works

  • We offer Share a Yacht Holidays on a number of weeks during the season and these are show in the chart below. We do not run them on all weeks but limit the number of dates available, so that we get more like minded people on the dates that we do run, giving a better mix to crew the yachts with.

  • The yachts that we use for the Share a Yacht trips are always yachts from our In House Fleet and all start from Murter in Croatia. Based on the information given at the time of booking we make up the crews to get what seems to be the best mix depending on ages, experience etc

  • Prices are based on each person having their own cabin. Where two people share a cabin then there is a 50% discount on the price of the second person. There will be a maximum of five on board a 35ft yacht , but three is more usual, as these holidays are popular with single travellers.

  • The price of the holiday is a per person cost payable at the time of booking, and includes, end cleaning, yacht deposit insurance, fuel and tourist tax. Each yacht must then pay their own mooring and marina fees as they go along and as these vary from about 175Euros to 225 Euros for the week, so each yacht needs to operate a kitty for this.

  • All flotillas start on Saturday's meaning that you join the yacht on a Saturday, but then do not sail until the Sunday morning. You return to the same port that you started from (unless stated otherwise at the time of booking) the following Friday afternoon having had six full days sailing, spend the last night on board, and then depart the following morning by 0930hrs.

  • All Share a Yacht's sail as part of the flotilla, and are under the overall guidance of the flotilla skippers.

  • For Share A Yacht to work, we must have a minimum of two people booked to manage any yacht, but of course we normally get much more than this. However when we take the first booking, there is always the risk that we will not get anyone else booking for that particular week, so to cater for this we operate as follows..

  1. If you have no flexibility of traveling dates and want to confirm your holiday, book flights etc, then we can only take the booking on the understanding that if there are no other clients for Share a yacht that week, then we will allocate you a place on one of the Learn to sail yachts that sail every week, and there is no extra cost for this. At the same time we will note your week down as a definite share a yacht week and then push that particular week, to encourage other bookings.

  2. If you have some flexibility of dates and do not have to commit to flights immediately, then we will option your booking but not take any deposit, and then note this on our planner as a provisional week, so that others can see that people want share a yacht that week. As soon as we get more demand then for that week, we will let you know so that your option can be confirmed at that stage at which point you can commit to flights etc.

Dates and Prices

  • The calendar below shows the weeks that we currently either have definite Share A Yacht trips, or proposed or requested trips. Weeks with a red Status are definite Share A Yacht weeks while, those with a Blue Status are proposed weeks. Proposed weeks are either weeks that we are suggesting, or are weeks that have been specifically requested by somebody.

  • If at any time somebody is interested in having a Share a Yacht on any particular week that we have not listed, all you need to do is email us and if we have yachts free we can change one of the other proposed dates to the date requested instead while we wait to see if others are also interested in that particular week. For this reason proposed weeks shown in blue are liable to change, so if you are interested in a specific date, it is important to let us know so that we can hold an option, without any commitment on your part, for you. Once at least two people are interested in a proposed date, then we will let you know so that you can confirm the booking and this date will then change to a definite week. This is necessary as there have to be at least two people booked before a Share a Yacht can operate.

  • Please email us if you are interested in Share a Yacht on any week and we will let you know if we have others interested in the same week, as weeks in blue are only suggested weeks based on previous years demand, and can be changed.
