Charter Management

Adriatic Sailing offers a charter management program for anyone interested in purchasing and sailing their own yacht. The Investor or Future Owner Programs are for those who do not want to be burdened with yacht maintenance, booking, or other similar obligations. The Owner Program is designed for people or companies that already have a yacht.

It doesn’t matter which program you choose. Our charter management program includes the following services by Adriatic Sailing:

  • Registering and fully maintaining the yacht in accordance with legal regulations on yacht charter activities;
  • Preparing and equipping the yacht according to the Croatian maritime code and other laws and regulations;
  • Providing an annual berth in the marina, providing or assisting in providing full cover insurance;
  • Carrying out all maintenance and service;
  • Worldwide marketing of the owner’s yacht with the support of an extensive network of yacht charter agencies;
  • Receiving guests and conducting check-in/check-out procedures at our base at the Marina Kaštela;
  • Technical support for the yacht and its crew during charter periods.

Adriatic sailing provides an investor/owner with full information on a yacht’s technical, revenue, and financial performance. This information is available through on-line applications:

  • Booking Manager, on-line application on bookings and their related financial results; and,
  • Adriatic Sailing’s own web application, where all information on technical activities carried out on the yacht are fully recorded.

Charter management with us is very simple. The two most frequently used approaches to establish cooperation between an investor/owner and Adriatic Sailing as the charter company are:

Investor program

This program has been developed for those who do not have or who do not want to establish a company to deal with the responsibilities related to yacht ownership. This program, in which the company does not have operating expenses, has been accepted by a number of investors from Sweden, Norway, and the UK.

Its basic features are:

  • The investor invests in the yacht of his choice, choosing the yacht builder and the model, receiving full support from Adriatic Sailing in regard to technical specifications. In addition, Adriatic Sailing provides the investor with the best commercial conditions, allowing him to get a very competitive offer;
  • The yacht is delivered to and registered in the name of Adriatic Sailing;
  • The investment is secured by a first-class mortgage on the yacht plus full insurance coverage for the investor in the event of a total loss of the yacht;
  • The investor is entitled to use his yacht for two weeks during the main sailing season plus additional two weeks out of season. In addition, the investor also has the right to use his yacht for an unlimited number of weeks on a “last-minute” basis;
  • The investment contract is made for a period of six years with a possibility to extend or shorten it, giving the investor full control over his investment;
  • In principle, the net income from a yacht charter is divided:
    • 50% for the investor
    • 50% for Adriatic Sailing,
    • while all yacht-related expenses, such as complete yacht maintenance, full insurance, annual berthing in the marina, etc. are the responsibility of Adriatic Sailing
  • Guaranteed revenue (ROI) amounting to 7% of the total investment value covering a fully equipped yacht. Depending on the model and manufacturer of the yacht, the guaranteed roi may be considerably higher;
  • At the expiration of the investment contract full ownership of the serviced yacht is transferred to the investor or to a person or entity named by the investor.

Owner program

The owner program suits people who already have a yacht or a company that owns a yacht and has a following features:

  • The owner provides the yacht;
  • A charter management contract is signed between the owner and Adriatic Sailing;
  • The owner is entitled to use the yacht for two weeks during the main sailing season plus two additional weeks out of season. In addition, the owner also has right to use the yacht for an unlimited number of weeks on a ‘last-minute’ basis;
  • The owner receives income generated from charter of the yacht less the contracted charter management fee. The amount of the charter management primarily depends on the size and model of the yacht;
  • Costs related to the yacht and its maintenance are payable by and on the owner’s account;
  • Charter income is paid monthly to the owner for charter incomes in the preceding month.

We are certain that the fact that:

  • Adriatic Sailing has been recognized in the global charter market;
  • Our high standards in maintaining the yachts in our fleet to the highest possible technical condition;
  • Our excellent personnel services for our guests,

plus the tailor-made charter management conditions that we can jointly develop from the two basic models described above will make you a satisfied investor and yacht owner. We are certain that you will enjoy the time that you use your yacht and work with the Adriatic Sailing team.

Our Quality and Support

Charter management is the sum of activities that include yacht maintenance, booking agency listings, the legal aspects of yacht ownership, and finally chartering a yacht. ADRIATIC SAILING is on top all of these tasks. Yacht maintenance and the quality of our standard yacht equipment is something that we are very proud of.

A high level of maintenance is our standard. We will treat yachts with respect to ensure the satisfaction of all of our guests. Our staff averages 5-10 years of experience working on yachts and there is no boat for which they do not have maintenance experience.

The outstanding customer service that we provide and our friendly staff are the reasons for our high booking results. The average booking for our yachts is 22 weeks per year, which provides a nice annual revenue stream for our yacht owners. When you combine this income with the sailing perks, you get a very satisfied YACHT OWNER.

Listen to what they have to say:

Investing in El Tabasco has turned out to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. The process from configuring the yacht to its delivery has been fun and has run smoothly.

There has been good balance between my personal desires and good advice all along the way. I chose ADRIATIC SAILING mostly because of my experience as long-time happy customer.

Customer care and yacht maintenance are its top priority and I wanted my investment to be carefully managed and well looked after. But my biggest goal for investing has also been met: lots and lots of sailing in lovely Croatia.
