The 80′ sailing yacht MATELOT is joining the Croatia yacht charter fleet and is offering a € 5,000 discount for all weekly rentals confirmed for June that are confirmed between now and April 30, 2011. The yacht’s regular weekly rate is € 25,000 plus all running expenses.
Combining the expert Italian styling of Nauta Design and the superb architecture of Farr Yacht Design, the Southern Wind 80 yacht MATELOT offers 3 comfortable guest staterooms plus performance sailing. The full beam Master Stateroom located forward of the panoramic deck salon has a walkaround king bed, settee and vanity / writing desk, and ensuite bath with stall shower. Two identical guest cabins amidships, aft of the salon each have twin lower single beds with ensuite heads & stall showers. Crew quarters and galley are fully aft with separate companionway.
Built in 2005 and refit in 2010, the sailboat is in “like new” condition following her winter spent in the shipyard in New Zealand. Charming veteran British crew are Captain Angus Fuller & chef Jessie Fuller (+1) who have several seasons of luxury sailing charter activity in Croatia and the Adriatic.

Back in January, 2014, we alerted our clients to new rules regarding a VAT increase imposed on Croatia yacht charter rentals. At that time, the government increased the VAT rate from 10 % to 13%, to help combat the country’s economic woes.
To offset this tax burden, we encouraged our clients to commence their charters in nearby Montenegro, then cruise into Croatian waters, tax-free.
Alas, good things sometimes come to an end…
Effective this month, new regulations take effect and eliminate the loophole that allowed tax-free cruising in Croatia.
In February, the Croatian Ministry of Maritime Affairs announced the regulations that govern the Croatia yacht charter market would be amended to, “…bring the regulations in line with other European Union Member States.” The main change was the imposition of VAT on charters starting outside of Croatia.
As succinctly explained by 1-800 Yacht Charters company president, Jana Sheeder,
“As of May 1st, 2018, charters commencing outside Croatia that then cruise into Croatia, will now have to pay 13% VAT on the time spent in Croatian waters.”
The new regulations are not retroactive. Thus, any charters booked prior to the regulation change are exempt.
On a positive note, other regulation changes designed to encourage an increase in yacht charter Croatia activity will also go into effect. The government has lifted the restriction that banned non-European Union charter yachts under 40 meters from chartering in Croatia. As explained by Rory Jackson of SuperyachtNews, “These restrictions, which prohibited non-EU commercial vessels under 40m chartering in Croatia, had been implemented to bolster the domestic market. However, they proved to be more costly than beneficial.”
Non EU flagged yachts under 40 meters will need to secure a charter license to operate in Croatia. The license will be required even if the charter starts outside Croatia.

“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.”
