Planning a Croatia Yacht Charter? Expect To Pay More.

In November, the Croatian government voted on a fiscal consolidation package to reduce the country’s deficit. One of the measures included an increased intermediate Value Added Tax (VAT, or PDV, as it is called in Croatia) rate from 10% to 13%.
Travelers organizing a yacht charter vacation in Croatia need to be aware of this increase, as the costs will certainly be passed along by the yacht owner to the charterer.
According to Jana Sheeder, a luxury yacht charter industry expert, other increases should be expected as well. “In each of the past three summer seasons, we have seen an increase in interest in Dalmatian yacht charter adventures in Croatia,” says Sheeder.  “We are advising our clients to budget not only for the increase in VAT, but also for the higher excise taxes on fuel that were approved in November.  In short, the cost to enjoy both a Croatia bareboat rental or a fully crewed yacht vacation will cost about 5% more in the summer of 2014.”

Trips to the Dalmatian Islands in Croatia now challenge locations in Italy and France as the most popular Mediterranean yacht charter destination. Wild and mostly uninhabited, many of the islands are environmentally protected as national parklands and offer a varied and diverse cruising ground for sail boat charters.
“Must-see” itinerary stops in Croatia include
  • Kornati National Park
  • The Town of Split, a UNESCO City
  • The Islands of Hvar, Brac, and Vis
  • Trogir, a World Heritage Organization City
  • Plitvice Lakes National Park
Next summer, take a sailing vacation in Croatia.  For further information and to maximize your spending budget, contact 1-800 Yacht Charters at
