Croatia is justifiably one of the top European countries for tourists from far and wide, with glorious countryside and coastal landscapes and a mild climate which attracts many visitors over the summer months. The emerald waters of the Adriatic Sea, terracotta tiled roofs of seaside towns and lush greenery adorning vertigo-inducing mountains all lure travellers to this beautiful country, as well as Hollywood producers that flock to capture the glorious cities for the settings of their latest movies! In terms of travel, you can fly from the London to Zadar Airport which is serviced by both Croatian and British Airlines in a little over 4 hours; or Split Airport, which has a wide range of carriers, such as BA, Eurowings, Lufthansa and more and takes only a three and a half hours. And once you land on the sunny shores of Croatia, one of the best ways to see as much of this beautiful country as possible is on a luxury sailing adventure aboard a skippered yacht courtesy of A2A Yachting.

7-night Dalmatian Coast Adventure Aboard the Samoa
This yachting holiday is more than just a luxury stay aboard a fabulous vessel for one whole week, complete with delectable breakfasts and abundant dinners. The itinerary allows you to see some of Croatia’s most coveted sites, as well as allowing you to hone your very own skippering skills should you so wish!
The itinerary combines visits to all the jewels of the Dalmatian coast of Croatia and will cater to all desires and tastes. While your vessel rests in a peaceful bay you can stretch your legs hiking or simply hire a bike to admire and explore the lush greenery of the beautiful national parks like Kornati, Krka Waterfall and Telascica. If you crave a meal out or fancy trying out the local nightlife, the popular Biograd, Vodice and Sibenik (which is also the base for this vessel) are all in the itinerary. Each are packed with restaurants, bars, cafes and bistros that offer delectable local cuisine as well as state-of-the-art marina facilities to meet your every need. If you are in for a spot of sightseeing, look no further than the magnificent and ancient town of Split, with its impressive Roman architecture which is best displayed in the sprawling complex known as Diocletian’s Palace. For those that simply can’t imagine a vacation without cocktail-soaked sunset parties, Hvar is the place to be, but it’s more than just a party island as the entire city is actually a UNESCO World Heritage Site with so much to see and do. Korcula, the alleged place of Marco Polo’s birth is a top contestant for the prettiest medieval seaside town and say beats Hvar in this respect, but I’ll leave that call up to you. Its beautiful fort welcomes sailors from the high vantage point of the old town, which also serves as the place to see some of the most glorious sunrises.
The 40ft sailing boat is the latest “talk of town” in the sailing world, as it was designed and built to provide maximum comfort, yet be able to compete in races. What this means for you is that even the lightest breeze will be picked up and you will not have to resort to motor to get from one beautiful stop to another. With its 135% genoa, the Samoa can also reach above average speeds in all sailing conditions which ensures a great sail every day. Decked out in traditional teak wood, this yacht will safely see you through your vacation in the ultimate of yachting comfort.
Inside it is perfectly suited for family and group vacations as it sleeps up to ten people comfortably in three double cabins and one twin. Each cabin has storage space underneath and on the sides, which is an important factor to consider when packing for your holiday. The boat also has two bathrooms onboard, which makes for a more comfortable experience whilst at sea. The Samoa also features a large saloon to relax in in the evenings or to escape the hot sunshine and spray should you wish, though I think that’s half the fun of a yachting escape! And to keep you safe, the deck has been adapted to make it easier to move around too.
So if you’re looking for a yachting adventure in the Mediterranean sunshine, then ensure you don’t overlook a cruise around the Croatian Adriatic with A2A Yachting, with great itinerary’s, yachts, crews and more, you’re sure to have the experience of a lifetime.
