With its 1244 islands and 8 national parks, Croatia is a sailing paradise!

With its numerous well-equipped and well-maintained marinas, short distances between islands, a multitude of sheltered anchorages and a wide variety of landscapes, Croatia is definitely the ideal sailing area for a cruise with your lover, family or friends.

The southern tip of the Istrian peninsula

The base of Pula, Marina Veruda, is the ideal starting point for sailing along the Istrian coast. The Pula International Airport is only 5 km from the marina.  The base is also easily accessible by car and you can safely leave your car there for the duration of your cruise.

You will find all services around the marina, many restaurants, a laundry, sanitary facilities, etc…

The Istrian peninsula offers an unspoilt coastline with many bays, marinas and anchorages. The Brijuni Islands National Park is one of the jewels of Istria, located a few miles from Pula. Heading north on the west coast of the peninsula, visit the medieval towns (equipped with modern marinas) of Rovinj, Vrsar, Porec, Novigrad or Umag.

From the Veruda marina, if you are well experienced you can also sail to Italy, only 60 nautical miles away, along the Slovenian coast. Grado and Venice are destinations not to be missed. Leave your sailboat in the beautiful St. Giorgio Marina in front of St. Mark’s Square and visit Venice in complete serenity. However, be careful with the traffic in the Venice lagoon and on the sandbanks. We recommend this trip in spring and autumn, when the city is less crowded.

From the Veruda marina, we offer you two models of NEEL trimarans, the NEEL 47 and the NEEL 45. We will also be able to rent you other sailing boats (catamaran or monohull), if the trimarans are no longer available.

Kastela Marina is an excellent base for your cruise in Croatia, located between Split and Trogir, it is easy to reach and close to Split International Airport.

Split, close to the marina, is a major and unmissable city in Croatia. Its city centre and Diocletian’s Palace are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, not only because of its excellent preservation but also because the palace and the city itself continue to live vigorously. Strolling through the old town, you will pass through the eras of history and be captivated by the beauty of the historical heritage.

From Kastela, sail peacefully to the nearby sunny islands of Solta, Brac, Hvar, Vis, Korcula, Lastovo and Mljet. There are many protected nature parks on these islands, you will find unspoiled nature that will seduce you. For those who love hiking, this is paradise, as there are many trails scattered all over the islands.  The island of Brac is famous for its white pebble beach, the Zlatni Rat beach. The town of Hvar (of the same name as the island) and its castle are worth a visit.  Lastovo and its archipelago are a paradise for diving enthusiasts.

The island of Solta is known for its many quiet coves and is a favourite destination for yachtsmen starting or finishing their cruise. Starting from the Kastela marina, we offer you to sail aboard the new NEEL 43 or a NEEL 47, but also on other sailing boats (catamarans and monohulls).
