As the new summertime “it” destination, a yacht charter in Croatia, a country rich in both history and natural beauty is simply idyllic. Its inviting cities blend old-time charm with sophisticated style; its glittering waters invite summertime respite; and its dramatic shoreline vies for attention with secluded coves, sun-drenched beaches and cultural treasures. Whether it’s Croatia’s nightlife that lures you with its oh-so-chic beach clubs or whether it’s the myriad UNESCO World Heritage Sites that recollects the region’s tumultuous past, this slice of paradise makes for a wonderful charter destination. This summer, Captain Carl Sputh of motor yacht Starfire recommends you charter a superyacht to play in Croatia’s glittering waters.
