Montenegro, on the southern part of the Adriatic coast, just south of Dubrovnik, is an exciting destination for a yacht charter.

Famous for the beauty of its coastline, Montenegro is perfect for a sailing holiday. There are hundreds of beaches and coves backed by a lush, forested interior. The sea is a stunning crystal clear green, unique even for the Adriatic. Escape from mass tourism and explore the charming medieval coastal towns - where Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Venetians and Turks have all gazed out to sea.

Along the coast of Montenegro are many sandy beaches and well-preserved old towns. Places you must visit are the Old town of Kotor, listed as a UNESCO world heritage site, and Boka Kotorska (Bay of Kotor), some say the most beautiful fjord in Europe with the old town of Perast and its islets. Don’t miss Budva with its well preserved old town, sandy beaches, great cafes and restaurants and Sveti Stefan, once a fishermen’s island, now the most picturesque resort on the coast.

Sailing Qualifications

To skipper a bareboat charter or flotilla yacht, you need to hold a practical sailing certificate equivalent to RYA Day Skipper Practical qualification or RYA International Certificate of Competence (ICC). For charters in Greece, you must now have the ICC certificate. You must also be assisted by at least one competent crew member over the age of 18.

The port authorities in Greece are now insisting on one of the following practical certificates: RYA ICC (International Certificate of Competence), RYA Coastal, RYA Yachtmaster, ASA IPC (International Proficiency Certificate) or the IYT (International Yacht Training) Passport. If you hold an RYA Day Skipper or ASA104 it will no longer be accepted and you need to obtain either an ICC or IPC from the corresponding issuing body (RYA or ASA). If your RYA Coastal/Yachtmaster or ASA105/106 certificate is more than 12 years old and does not have a photo ID, then we would also strongly advise applying for an ICC or IPC. If you are a member of the RYA or ASA, you may qualify for a discount or free certificate, otherwise, you will have to pay. The approximate cost is £50. Please use this link - RYA application for the ICC or ASA application for the IPC.

For charters in Croatia, Malta and the Canaries, at least one member of the crew or the skipper will also need a VHF licence.

RYA qualifications can be obtained by RYA sailing schools in the UK or alternatively choose from one of our overseas centres in Gibraltar, Greece or Turkey.

For Seychelles, the local authorities require an ICC for the skipper of a bareboat or flotilla yacht charter.

For Caribbean and Tropical charters, formal qualifications are not compulsory, however, you should be Day Skipper standard and be assisted by at least one competent crew. A brief sailing resume should be provided to outline your experience.

If you don't hold the relevant qualifications then why not add a skipper?
