FAQ for Boutique Cruises
What do I take with me on a yacht trip?
Are there additional costs to be expected?
In addition to the yacht charter price, there are the following costs if they have not been calculated in advance or are included in the offer: Food and beverages on board and ashore, rent of water sports equipment, marina, port, buoys and anchorage costs, arrival and departure to and from the yacht, fuel, entrance to national parks and nature reserves, excursions ashore such as bicycle rental or guided city tours, wages and food as well as tips for skipper & crew.
What is the daily schedule for luxury cruises?
It’s not even sunrise and part of the crew is already on their feet, preparing a varied breakfast buffet on quiet soles. Mostly there is the possibility to dive into the crystal clear water of Croatia before or after breakfast. The crew serves you fried eggs and your coffee with great pleasure and lots of love. After breakfast, the ship usually leaves and heads in the direction of the day’s destination. At noon we usually anchor and there is a three course menu served by the crew. There is plenty of time to relax or try out various water sports. In the evening you can either anchor in the lonely bays or in great antique towns which you can explore with great pleasure. On a luxury cruise you can concentrate on relaxing and enjoying your vacation, the crew takes care of almost everything, starting with buying the food, preparing and serving the food & drinks, cleaning the ship, route planning and navigation of the yacht.
What kind of shoes do I wear on board?
In principle, every guest can wear the shoes in which it is comfortable, except shoes with heels are expressly not allowed. However, the shoes should have a white sole with no profile, otherwise they will leave dark stripes on the deck and with profile soles small stones will always be carried on board. Our recommendation is to be barefoot on the one hand and just bring two pairs of shoes with you. One to explore the land and the other to wear on board.
What is a cabin charter?
With a cabin charter you book only one or more cabins. You spend a week with other people with whom you share some common ground and joy: You love to travel and discover new things, have an affinity for classic sailing & motor yachts and simply enjoy being at sea and make new friends while enjoying the passion of yachting to the full. Travel individually but not alone. Cabin charters are usually offered on luxury cruises, but can also be booked on selected dates on catamaran sailing trips.
What is a private charter?
With a private charter, you rent the entire yacht for your family and friends to be among yourselves. Whether active to sail along on sailing yachts, catamaran or also on our luxury cruises to be spoiled all around. Perfect to celebrate anniversaries or other festivities or just to enjoy life to the fullest.
Advantages of a crewed yacht charter?
The crew makes the difference! On our luxury sailing cruises a professionally trained crew is on board which consists of between three and six crew members. A captain, who is responsible for the ship, plans the route taking into account the weather, takes care of the well-being of the crew & guests. A cook, he takes care of all purchases of drinks and food, prepares a great breakfast buffet, at noon he conjures a light three course menu out of the small galley and optionally with full board also a delicious dinner – tailored to the wishes of the guests. The hostess will be happy to serve all popular drinks and food and after a few days she will read the wishes of the guests from their eyes and will do her best to make their journey as comfortable and carefree as possible. She is also responsible for the cleanliness inside the ship. The sailor is the right hand of the captain, supports him actively in navigating and mooring the ship and is responsible for the cleanliness of the deck. In short, you can fully orientate yourself on enjoying & relaxing, your crew will take care of everything else to make your trip unforgettable.
Where does the journey start?
Usually our trips in Dalmatia start in Trogir near Split. With “One – way – routes” it can be also in Dubrovnik or to another starting point.
Can I collect miles?
Yes, this is possible on sailing-, catamaran- and motor boat trips with skipper. For luxury sailing cruises with more than two crew members it is unfortunately not possible. It is also possible to arrange specific mileage cruises.
Who decides about the route?
With a private charter we can respond even more to the wishes of the group and try to reach all the destinations that are desired. With cabin charter there is usually a “fixed route” which is determined by the captain, of course we also try to respond to individual wishes as good as possible. It applies with each kind of the journey however: Safety first, it can occur thus that there can be plan changes because of weather situations, which the captain & Skipper decides alone.
What is a Gulet?
A gulet is a traditional wooden boat with two masts, which have been handmade in Turkey more than a hundred years ago. It has much charm and warmth, simply uniquely inviting and to feel like at home by so much love for detail. Gulets usually have between three and six cabins, are often under engine, but also have sails and as soon as the wind conditions are right they are set. They score points with full service on board, a large outdoor area with sun deck and outdoor al fresco dining table and often have a huge open air lounge.
What is the difference between half board & full board?
Half board includes a breakfast buffet & a 2 to 3 course lunch. Full board includes breakfast & lunch and dinner served on board. Our recommendation is half board, so you can discover even more about culture, culinary delights and people during short excursions ashore.
Activities outside the yacht?
A sailing cruise or catamaran sailing trip can be perfectly combined to explore the country, for example with rented bicycles or scooters. Go for hiking, kayaking, diving, windsurfing or simply to go shopping. Actually, almost everything is possible, activities can be optionally organized for one day or more days.
Are towels & bed linen provided?
Yes, bed linen & towels are included. Depending on the offer you have booked, the number of towels per person varies.
How is the living together with the crew or skipper?
The crew on the luxury cruises are professionally trained and are on duty when necessary and withdraw when not needed. This is also the case with our Bluetrips skippers. The crew & skippers have a separate cabin.
What is a boutique sailing yacht?
A boutique sailing yacht is a particularly exclusive accommodation that stands out from other yachts with high service and exceptional design. Boutique sailing yachts are mostly privately owned and operated by the owners themselves and are maintained and highlighted by their family atmosphere. Our award winning Boutique Sailing Yacht LUOPAN is one of the most beautiful and best maintained in the Adriatic.
How are the cabins equipped?
All cabins are equipped with towels & bed linen. On luxury sailing cruises all cabins have their own en suite bathroom with hair dryers and many other accessories. They also have 220V power outlets and air conditioning and closets.
Do I tip?
In this context, there is often uncertainty, but yes, of course, in Croatia tipping is also common. In the restaurant, hotel or in the coffee bar you give approx. 10% of the invoice costs if you are satisfied. In the same way it behaves also with the cab driver or the crew and Skipper on yachts. With satisfaction it belongs to the customs approx. 10% of the charter price as tip value to appreciations.
Which route will we travel?
Starting from Trogir east to the National Park Kornati or west to Korćula and back. We also offer “One-way-trips”, which start in Trogir and end in Dubrovnik or in reverse order. Depending on the route, the most varied islands and cities are visited, such as Šibenik, Šolta, Brać, Hvar, Vis, Split Mljet, Lastovo. And many other untouched beauties of the country.
