Nauticki Centar Pina (NCP): Croatian Yacht Charter Company

NCP Yacht CharterEvery now and then, we like to feature a favorite Yacht Charter Company. Featured here today is NCP & Mare in Šibenik, Croatia. Personally, I have chartered from them and been to Šibenik. Šibenik is a gorgeous old style Croatian village set in a lake type inlet with direct access to the ocean through a castle guarded 100-yard wide ocean entrance (it’s very cool).

With its architectural and cultural heritage, the town of Šibenik is a real gem. Šibenik is rich in cultural monuments, among which the Cathedral of St. James and St. Nicholas fortress are UNESCO World heritage, standing out.

Situated right in the middle of the Adriatic coast and surrounded with numerous islands, the area provides a unique experience for sailing and cruising. Located in the middle of the Adriatic coast, the base is the ideal starting point for a trip to Vis, Hvar, Korčula and Dubrovnik in the south, as well as to Zadar, Istria or Brijuni islands in the north of the Adriatic Sea. One or two-week itinerary trips are available.

I have sailed in Croatia twice and thoroughly recommend it. To book a charter in Croatia, contact us through our sailing vacation page. We can give you recommendations on an itinerary, boat types, seasons and what to expect. We don’t charge you a fee for booking through us.

The fleet is located in D-Marina Mandalina (Croatia’s only marina to have been awarded 5 Gold Anchors)  in Šibenik, which is 10 minutes drive away from the highway connection and 40 minutes from the two international airports Split and Zadar and just between two national parks: the beautiful Kornati archipelago and the picturesque waterfalls of the river Krka.

They started their fleet with 12 motor yachts, today NCP & mare is the leading Croatian sailing and power yacht charter company with more than 70 yachts in their fleet of monohull sailing yachts, catamaran sailing yachts and luxury motor yachts that can be rented with or without a crew.
