According to Croatian law, at least one person on the vessel must possess valid nautical and VHF licenses. What does it mean? If you don’t want to hire a skipper, in order to charter a boat, you must have valid licenses, in addition to your sailing experience.
Navigational and VHF licenses in Croatia are issued by Port Authorities, and if your license is issued in a foreign country, please check whether it is valid for Croatian territorial waters. To obtain the license, one must take classes and pass an exam that includes theoretical and practical elements.
If you want the bareboat charter, you must send us the copies of your licenses in advance, to be able to confirm the booking. In case there is something wrong with your documents, we will inform you on time.
You must have the originals with you on board all the time, so don’t forget to take them. Croatian laws are very strict in regards to these regulations and it is impossible to charter a boat without all the necessary documents.
