How to choose the boat
To choose a boat for a cruising holiday you have to take into consideration several important things. First of all is type of the boat. Concerning boat type you can choose between sailing and motor boat, among which there are some significant differences. Seaworthiness, speed, fuel consumption and charter price are the most important ones.
Motor boat is usually more luxurious and faster but it’s engine(s) consume quite of fuel, while the charter price is much higher than price for a sailing boat of similar dimensions. Sailing boat is much slower, but it offers really special experience of the sea and navigation. It is also much cheaper and it can usually accomodate more people on the same size comparing to motor yacht.
It is a little bit more easy to handle and manage a motor boat, because handling with sails requires more knowledge and experience. Good seaworthiness at rough sea is an advantage of a sailing boat, but with a motor yacht you can more faster escape from stormy weather. It really depends on your own preferences.
What are the marinas and buoys costs?
Typical Croatian harbour offers laid moorings, water and electricity for 4 € per meter of boat lenght, though the most popular places (e.g. Hvar Town, Milna on Brac) charge more. Buoys are typically half or two thirds of that amount, depending on location and popularity.
