As mentioned above, the beautiful upper flybridge provides an incredible panoramic view of both the horizon and boat charter itself. Another impressive feature is the electric halyard which makes the mainsail extremely easy to raise while all the main instruments are also within easy reach from here. Yes, with every line on the boat leading back to the flybridge, yachting alone is always an option. In fact, there is also a joystick in the navigation station which allows you to control the movement of the boat from the comfort of the saloon.

As for the engines, the Yanmar 50hp diesel has three bladed props and SD50 drive units which give this yacht a huge amount of power. Conveniently, each of these engines can be accessed easily from the steps of the stern. Amazingly, the cockpit can hold up to ten people quite comfortably with a GRP table and ample seating. Consisting of a sink, fridge, and some other useful facilities, this area of the boat is a joy to use, and you will find a large generator beneath these seats that ensure there is always enough power.

Moving back toward the saloon, a hugely spacious area reveals itself beyond the sliding door and even more seating with a large L shaped sofa set right in the middle of the room. Again, beneath this seat, you will find more storage, and there is also a large counter top in the galley which has a wide range of purpose. Opening into the cockpit, a small hatch is then accompanied by an oven, microwave, and freezer to mention just a few useful features. Rounding off the facilities in this area, you will find a BTU air conditioning unit to keep life cool beneath deck when the weather is particularly warm.

And then you have the sleeping quarters, where four enormous double cabins are equipped with an equally impressive amount of storage. Located in the aft and the forward hull, every cabin on this yacht charter contains a private shower and separate air conditioning controls. At the very front, there is also one last cabin for crew next to the starboard hull to ensure further space and comfort while sailing in Croatia.

Chartering a boat in Croatia is a relatively easy task but choosing the right companion for a yachting adventure requires a little bit of research. That being said, research is something which Cruising World Magazine carry out on a regular basis and this combined with the popularity of this yacht should be enough to convince you that this is an obvious choice for a successful time while sailing in Croatia.
