Jeff...Have not chartered there but have toured in the Dubrovnik area. I was so surprised...it is spectacular and I think a charter there would be wonderful. I would rather do one there than in Greece or Turkey.
Hopefully someone will respond with some actual sailing experience along that coast but the water is great and the small seaport towns and restaurants etc. are perfect!

..... I have cruised the Croatian Coast in 2003 but did not charter. Let me know if I can be of help.

Croatia Charter
 
My wife and I, age 65+ are looking to share a charter, preferably with a cook in late Sept. I have sailed for more than 40 years, currently own an Ericson 34.

The Croatian coast is absolutely beautiful and so are the people. I cruised in from Trani in the eastern shore of Italy and made landfall in Split. From Split we cruised around several of the islands offshore of the Split-Trogir coast. I did not travel down to Dubrovnik but I know that it is also an excellent stop, so is Montenegro further down.

After cruising, I drove a car from Trogir around to Venice using the highways right on the coast. Although the northern seascape had a very surreal feel to it, I think the nicest part of the coast is around and south of Trogir; where I saw all the charter operators.

The Croatia Tourism Office has, online, a very extensive database of the marinas and their amenities.

Yes, my wife and I have been to Split, Crotia out of The Moorings base last September. They claim it never rains in Croatia, well it does and it did for 5 out of 15 days and at times it was squall like conditions. The islands were beautiful; and nothing was inexpensive. Had pizza in Dubrovnik and it cost $20 per person.

Also went to Greece the year before and thought that it was just as spectacular as Croatia. I think I like the people in Greece better than those in Croatia. I had an anti American feeling in some placesin Croatia. The Greeks on the other hand are some of the friendliest people we have met.

This coming Sept. we will be in Turkey for 2 weeks.

I've been sailing in Croatia, but mainly in Istria. There are really nice places there, but it can be very crowded there in summer months.

What do you need to know?

Charter in Portugal, get good food and good wine.....and maybe you get to sail in Giulietta!!!!

That beats any croatian destination!!:D :D

Besides, the French go there a lot....

Croatia is nice but expensive, well expensvie ashore, the yachts and charter companies are cheaper cheaper than Greece as they are in direct competion and want the business. Croatia has some funky rules when chartering, you must overnight in a marina...$$$...Last year they had a wired rule about filing a crew list before you arrive... not sure what that was about... overall they people are Ok but definately not as friendly as the Greeks. Croatia where it does have quite a few islands does not have the variety that geeece has......and you will find an hundreds ... no thousands... of Germans and Austrains..... on holiday... and that for some can ruin a perfectly good trip...
Good luck
