Our Story

Welcome to Croatia-Charter.hr, a brand and website specialized for Yacht Charter in Croatia owned by Fair Wind Ltd, a trusted yacht charter company based in the breathtaking city of Split, Croatia.

I’m Ivana Kovačić, the founder and booking manager of Fair Wind, and I’m thrilled to share our story with you.

My journey into the world of yacht charter started unexpectedly in 2004 when my father introduced me to sailing by purchasing a sailboat. However, little did I know that this introduction would spark a lifelong love affair with the open sea.

Fast forward to 2014 when my husband Paško and I founded Fair Wind with a small fleet of own boats. Since then, we’ve been dedicated to delivering exceptional sailing holidays in Croatia.

Over the years, Fair Wind has earned a stellar reputation for excellence in service. We’re thrilled to share that our clients have consistently left glowing reviews. You can verify them on platforms such as Google, Facebook, and TripAdvisor.

However, the popularity of our charter services brought about a delightful challenge—meeting the high demand. Many travellers sought our expertise, but our limited fleet sometimes couldn’t accommodate everyone due to availability or specific boat requirements. That’s when the idea of Croatia Charter was born.

Croatia Charter serves as an extension of Fair Wind, but it is not just another charter agency. It’s an extension of my passion for sailing and dedication to ensuring that every client experiences the magic of the Adriatic Sea.

At Croatia Charter, we bridge the gap between eager travellers and the ideal sailing adventure. Additionally, I leverage my extensive network in the industry to connect you with reputable boat providers, knowledgeable crew members, and the best sailing routes Croatia has to offer. Whether you’re a seasoned sailor or a first-time adventurer, seeking advice on routes, estimate of total costs, or simply looking for transparency in pricing I am here to make your maritime dreams a reality.

As a proud mother of three, I’ve mastered the art of multitasking and organization, skills that seamlessly translate into running a successful yacht charter business. From booking and finances to marketing and organization, I’ve worn many hats to ensure that each detail is meticulously taken care of.

Join us as we embark on this new adventure. Let’s create unforgettable memories together on the stunning waters of Croatia.

Welcome aboard!

"This is one of those rare experiences where you feel some compulsion to find a way to give someone a sixth star on this website... unbelievable. They were personally recommended by a close friend back home, and we are very much indebted for the reference. Ivana could not have been more helpful if I was her own brother in helping me to plan this trip, which was especially tricky in that we are a family of six travelling during covid and all the rest - but her advice and her assistance and all the rest that she did to ensure our trip was flawless - just impeccable……" - Dave, USA
