Adriatic Sea Yacht Charter Guide

Let the beauty, history and gastronomy of the Adriatic fill you with wonder.

There are few things better than waking up aboard a luxury yacht with the sunshine streaming through the large windows to port and starboard, giving you the perfect views of the sparkling Adriatic Sea that surrounds you. Whether you are cruising Eastern Italy, Montenegro, Croatia or beyond, your Adriatic yacht charter will promise stunning scenery, ancient history, incredible cuisine, plenty of fun in the sun and more.

If you’re looking to fall in love, is there really any other charter destination than Venice? Set along the Adriatic Sea, this water-locked Italian city truly is best explored by boat. The city does not permit cars. A yacht’s tender is well suited for traversing the canals here. Your charter yacht will dock at one of the city’s marinas as you set off on an adventure winding through the streets of this maze-like city. Visit the Piazza St. Marco with its stunning basilica. Pop in Harry’s Bar for a Bellini and enjoy some of the city’s incredible cuisine – any seafood dish will delight. The eastern Italian coast also has so much to offer from the Ancona islands in the south to Trieste in the north, all of which offer unique cultures.

If you choose to head further east, Croatia and Montenegro sit on the opposite side of the Adriatic. Both destinations offer incredible culture, sights, cruising locales and so much more. Perfectly poised on the Dalmatian Coast, Croatia is fast becoming a favorite destination. If you are a history buff or a fan of “Game of Thrones,” then stepping ashore in Dubrovnik will be a true highlight of your trip. In the location of GOT’s Kings Landing, you will be transported to a medieval fortress, but don’t be misled by its ancient aesthetics, this coastal city has lots of modern amenities, including restaurants, spas, bars and more. Montenegro offers calm waters and stunning scenery. You will discover how old meets new in the Bay of Kotor as quaint fishing villages sit across from world-class marinas, high-end restaurants and glamorous bars. Take in these stunning sights and more from the sundeck of your charter yacht during an Adriatic charter.
