One of Europe’s most enchanting cities, Dubrovnik is also a hugely popular jumping off point for yacht charters that venture out to the Adriatic sea and beyond.

Located in southern Croatia, the city is best known for its beguiling Old Town encircled with huge 16th-century stone walls. But it is as much its stunningly preserved. But it’s also Dubrovnik’s scenic coastline that draws huge numbers of visitors here every year – a coastline that entices many to venture out further to explore the glistening waters of the Adriatic. For such people, chartering a yacht around Dubrovnik is the perfect activity – and here are 3 great places to do so.


Founded in 2014, SkipperCity have served as a one-stop shop for yacht charters in Croatia for many years and are our number one recommendation for both crewed and bareboat charters in Dubrovnik. They offer everything from catamaran charter to luxury yacht to sailboat charter opportunities, and plenty more, across Croatia, with vessels of various size and spec available directly from two marinas in the Dubrovnik region:  ACI Marina Slano and ACI Marina Dubrovnik. They also offer a best price guarantee and the price you see is the price you pay, with no hidden fees.

Ritzy Charters

Ritzy Charters have a large fleet of crewed vessels available for boat charter adventures of a week or more, including sailboat, motor yacht and catamaran options. The booking process is easy – all you need to do is punch in details about your trip, including party size, dates of travel and preferred itinerary, then ask for a quote and wait to receive a shortlist of vessels available for your specified dates. When we looked at availability across Croatia we found over 170 vessels available – although not all of these will be possible to charter in Dubrovnik – with rates starting at €9,800 per week for a 57-foot catamaran that sleeps up to six guests.


Click & Boat are our top pick for short-term charters of anything from a few hours to a few days. A peer-to-peer platform, owners create free listings for their boats by adding pictures, a description, and a price, with prospective renters then able to  contact them directly via an online messaging service. Bareboat charter rentals are the cheapest option, but you can also have a captain onboard for an extra charge. When we searched for boat rentals in Dubrovnik, there were over 100 vessels available, with the cheapest option a traditional 5-metre wooden motorboat that can accommodate up to 6 people, available bareboat and priced at €76 per day before fees. No licence is required to helm this boat.
