Description

ABOUT

This is solid and spacious Bavaria 46 Cruiser built in 2008. She has 4 cabins and 2 heads but will only be able to offer 3 double bed cabins where up to 6 guests can be comfortably accommodated. Forth, bunk bed cabin, is used by skipper. Please note that Marinas can only be chartered with skipper but thanks to that it can also be chartered for a short stay like a day or even half a day cruise.
Since it joined our fleet few years ago, plenty of work has been done; new fridges were installed, solar panels added, old sails replaced, bedclothes, kitchen equipment, dingy, outboard, lots of equipment was refurbished. Considering her age and years spent in charter she now looks much better than most of her colleagues of the same age but her experience and miles left behind are, normally, visible. What you can expect is a cozy, comfortable and very safe middle age lady with well-maintained interior and fully equipped for extended cruising.

PAYMENT and EXPENCESS
All the expenses that you can expect before and during your stay are divided into three steps;

1. First part is your online reservation/booking. This part is related with accommodation alone and it includes boat charter, Croatian VAT and Sailo agency commission.

3. Third part are expenses that depend on your preferences; food and beverage, fuel (depending on choice of your itinerary), port fees (should you choose to stay overnight in the local villages, port fees are to be sorted by you). These are to be sorted throughout your stay.

- crew gratitude - skipper job is one of the best jobs in the world, but not an easy one. Making sure everything goes smooth and safe, quite often out of their comfort zone to ensure the best possible experience. Tip is not obligatory but it is expected and very much appreciated.

ITINERARY
Itinerary will be created in accordance to the weather, length of stay and your preferences. If you have destinations that you want to visit or activities you want to do, we will do our best to adjust it accordingly. It is good to have the plan and learn about the area before your arrival, it is always good to ask us for recommendations and suggestions, however do have in mind that the final route will be confirmed by the skipper, after checking the weather forecast on the day of your arrival. There are many logistical details to be taken into account so our skipper will suggest safest and the most comfortable route, planning few days ahead. However, if you want to do extra activities outside of the boat, do let us know ahead of your arrival as restaurants, various tours, berth in port etc … all needs to be reserved in advance.

WHAT TO EXPECT
ONE DAY charter - we are staying within the triangle of Split, Brač and Šolta. You can expect to visit one of the villages on Brač or Šolta, swim stop in the middle of a day and two hour navigation both ways.
TWO DAY charter - overnight onboard is the minimum to experience the real thing. If you have never tried it, stay on the anchor and enjoy the comfort of your floating home in the middle of beautiful nature. Two day trip can include several swim stops on various places and visit of two or three different villages, if your daily navigation is not too long. Hvar town is also comfortably reachable in two days.
THREE DAY charter – it is a big difference between one/two day trip and everything above. Several hours of navigation are needed to clear the area of Split and find yourself in attractive destination. Good part of your first and last day will be navigation to your final destination but in this case you have one full day to use just as you want. Three- and four-days trips are our recommendation as the best discovery sailing option.

Please note that the average daily price is lower the more days you choose to book.

    If there were six stars available, I would happily give them all to Neven and his 46' Bavaria sailboat. This wasn't just a rental, it was a one-of-a-kind experience that added an irreplaceable layer of magic to our vacation in Hvar, Croatia.

    The sailboat itself was absolutely pristine. Neven's Bavaria was meticulously maintained, sparking clean, and everything onboard worked as it should - evidence of Neven's passion and dedication to providing the best sailing experience possible for his guests. It was evident that this wasn't just a business for him, but a labor of love.

    Neven was nothing short of extraordinary. He not only ensured that our sailing experience was safe and smooth, but he also went above and beyond to make it educational and unforgettable. His extensive knowledge of sailing and the local area provided a richness to our journey that we couldn't have gained anywhere else. It's rare to find someone so eager to share their expertise, but Neven seemed to relish it.

    The highlight of our trip was when Neven let our 13-year-old daughter take the helm under his careful supervision. His patient teaching and encouraging manner gave her confidence and it was a thrill for her to navigate the Adriatic Sea. It was a day she will cherish forever.

    The lunch stop was picture-perfect, a quintessential Croatian experience - idyllic and serene. The location Neven chose was not something we would have found on our own, and it gave us a chance to enjoy some downtime in a stunningly beautiful location, adding to the overall joy of the day.

    Neven's service goes beyond anything we have experienced in our previous rentals. It was not just about the immaculate boat or the perfect sailing conditions, it was about the warmth, hospitality, and genuine care that Neven showed us throughout the day. He made our family feel like his own and made sure every single detail was catered to.

    In conclusion, if you're planning a trip to Hvar and considering a sailing experience, look no further than Neven. You will not only have an amazing sailing trip but also make a lifelong friend in Croatia. He is an absolute gem, and we would wholeheartedly recommend him for both short-term and long-term rentals. This experience was the highlight of our vacation, and we are confident it will be the same for you.

    Sail with Neven, you won't regret it.

    As a couple we found the boat very comfortable, spacious and well appointed. What really made the trip was the skipper, Luka. Luka was gracious about taking us to all the places that tourists typically want to go, but additionally, he took us to quieter ports with amazing restaurants and the most beautiful scenery. We so enjoyed sailing with him. He provided fascinating historical info as well as current information about our surroundings and helped us to better understand Croatia and its citizens. Would highly recommend Luka and Neven’s boat.

Location and Destination Guide

Usually this boat operates around Split, HR.

Croatia’s second city, Split is a fantastic blend of maritime history and laid back urban vibes. Often overlooked by Dubrovnik, Split actually makes the perfect base to rent a boat and explore the Dalmatian coast when sailing in Croatia. And with a palm fringed, sea facing promenade, and some of the most popular Croatian islands on its doorstep, you’ll see why this city is quickly catching up with it’s more glamorous neighbor.
