Skippered yacht charter in Croatia
Skippered yacht charter in Croatia

As we see the world slowly starting to move to the new normal living with the COVID-19 pandemic, we are excited that the gates to international travel are very slowly beginning to open.

Due to the travel lockdown, there have been little to no yacht charter departures in any of our destinations since March 2020 but in July 2021, we were thrilled that a family from the United States, based in the Netherlands, were able to sail a stunning new Bali CatSpace yacht for the week. Boarding in Dubrovnik, the family were welcomed aboard yacht Dragonfly for a fun filled week of much needed adventures on the Croatian coast. Poseidon's multi-talented skipper Bruno Kostadina sailed the family to pretty ports of call along the Dalmatian Coast, anchoring each evening for fine dining and nights under the stars! 

After so many months and a difficult time for the travel industry, we appreciated this first booking back to business as usual. In the words of Captain Bruno, the week was "phenomenal with a magnificent family; the weather was great and everyone was having fun" 

In the words of the Abraham family...
"We cannot say enough wonderful things about our trip and your services and we are grateful for your kind help, your endless patience with us in making decisions and the lifetime of memories you helped us to create with the perfect boat and an even more perfect skipper (Bruno).  We LOVED the Bali Catspace and loved sailing out of Dubrovnik.  We have submitted our Google Review, but please feel free to use us a reference for your future clients.  Let us know if there is anything else we can do for you :) Now with both of our eldest kids in college, family vacations will be a bit more challenging, but we hope to sail again with Poseidon Charters in the future!"

A skippered charter is a the same as a yacht charter, but with a professional skipper onboard. Professional skippers offer much more than sailing the yacht, they are the host to the country you are sailing in and can provide the local knowledge enabling you to really experience the local culture and highlights of each destination. Chartering a yacht with a skipper is a great idea if you are a new or uncertified sailor planning your first yacht charter holiday or an experienced sailor who would like a more relaxing charter experience.
