The Yoga Sailing Weeks is a very comfortable elegant and beautiful 4 or 5-cabin sailing boat which can accommodate from 6 to 10 people (including the crew). On board, you will find all facilities including Wi-Fi, towels and linens, bathrooms, a kitchen, and inside spacious saloon area. This charming sailing boat also offers a great outdoor dining space with a very comfortable sitting area. The boat also offers many delicious breakfasts, brunches, and al fresco dinners absorbing the scents of the ocean and surrounding landscapes.
You will arise with the Adriatic sun and a yoga practice on the spacious and shaded yoga deck. You can feel downward-dog gazing into the azure blue of the Adriatic sea. After yoga and a morning swim, you can lounge and have breakfast. Then, you will prepare to set sail which will take 3 to 6 hours to your next destination.
Just Perfect Yacht Charter can offer you a host of activities such as swimming, snorkeling, exploring the exquisite nature or charming seaside villages, or relax on the deck with a book. Each day, you will be at a new island with time to explore. Some lunches can be on-board while others can be on your own in a sea-side village.
In addition, Just Perfect Yacht Charter has three organized outings including an organic farm tour and lunch on the isle of Korcula, a hike through the spectacular lakes at Mljet National Park, and a special sunset vineyard tour and dinner on the islands of Vis and Hvar.
Evenings are pure magic as you will close our day with sunset yoga and meditation on the boat or in a quiet cove on shore. Following yoga, you can enjoy wine and dine at an additional cost under the stars on-board or in a local island restaurant. All cuisine is locally sourced and prepared with traditional recipes of grilled fish, seafood, and fresh vegetables.
Evenings are either on the boat or explore the nightlife in island villages. You will rock gently to sleep in your cabin or on deck, directly under the stars. The daily practice of yoga on different beaches will increase the sense of disconnection - opening up the body, increasing fitness levels, as well making calm the mind.
Every day, you will be visiting one or two bays, making the last stop the place you stay for the night. You can enjoy your day relaxing on the deck feeling the sun, reading your favorite book, exploring the turquoise deep water with your snorkel, making a trip to plenty of ancient ruins or visiting picturesque villages, and taking the opportunity to spend the night on deck sleeping under the stars. As the winds are usually very calm and there are no big waves in this area, you will mainly sail on the motor which will make this holiday suitable for everybody.
The main advantage of a motor yacht is its speed. This means you can get quickly from one destination to another. Besides the speed, one more great advantage is the stability and comfort because of its greater cruising autonomy. Because of its lower draught, a motor yacht makes anchoring in shallow bays an easy task. Other advantages include a spacious interior with a plenty of headrooms and great view from the fly bridge. Also, motor yachts have no dependency on wind speed and allow you to always be the one who chooses the next destination at any given time.
If you can’t sail, Just Perfect Yacht Charter will provide you with professional skippers who will ensure your comfort and safety. They are your ‘local insiders’ on board who know the local waters. The skippers also have the responsibilities how to manage and navigate the boat as well as to understand the weather. Skippers possess the information of where to go and which are the best places to visit. They will be your best friend and stay with you on the yacht throughout the whole week and if you want to, they will teach you how to sail.
Just Perfect Yacht Charter offers sailing yachts that can accommodate from 6 to 12 people. If one of you has a valid skipper license, you can be a skipper of your own sailing yacht. If not, you must allocate one bed for the skipper. For example, if you are a group of 6 people, you would have to book a yacht for 7 people to include the skipper. Keep in mind that all food and drinks must also be provided for the skipper by the crew during the week.
Croatia is the perfect place for people to charter a sailing boat or catamaran surrounded by beauty and adventure. There are several stunning places to visit while sailing in Croatia on a charter boat such as Kornati National Park, Brač, Hvar, Vis, and Dubrovnik.
Kornati National Park, or known as Kornati Island, is situated along the central part of Croatian Adriatic. With their immense natural beauty, diverse coastlines, and preserved a marine ecosystem, most of the islands were declared a national park in 1980. Kornati National Park sizes about 220 square kilometers and consists of 89 islands, islets, and reefs. The park is located about 7 nautical miles from the island of Murter. Vegetation on the islands is minimal, giving the islands a bald look. However, nature still thrives with plant life on the rocks. Crystal clear water uncovers all kinds of reefs, shellfish, and many species of fish below the surface. Kornati is a real heaven for yachtsmen, divers, and all those who like to enjoy the solitude of untouched and the magnificence of nature. There are 20 restaurants on the Kornati islands which serve fish specialties.
Brač is the third largest island in Croatia known for its beautiful beach, Zlatni Rat, in Bol. This beach keeps being included in every article that lists the most beautiful beaches in the world. Once upon a time, Bol was a settlement of wine-growers, fishermen, and sailmen. Today, it is primarily a tourist settlement. People are direct and original. Bol is the favorite destination for excursion boats as well as yachtsmen and has a special berth for yachts. As an attractive tourist destination, Bol promotes its recognizable cultural identity and peculiarities which delight the visitors and make it an obligatory stop on your sailing vacation if possible.
Hvar refers to the island of the sunshine, secluded coves, lavender, wine, olive groves, and ancient towns. This place has been voted as one of the 10 most beautiful islands in the world. Hvar is famous for its fine wines and world-renowned vineyards. During the long summer months, Hvar has become the most popular destination for a night out on the Adriatic Sea. As the night progresses, people begin to gather around the many cafes and hotel terraces with live music. Its proximity to many other attractions makes Hvar a staple of any yachting route in Croatia.
Vis is famous for its caves with unique iridescent blue water that will make your visit unforgettable. In the evening, an organized trip to the interior of the island brings people to Rocky’s - a unique local restaurant and vineyard - where those who wish to truly experience Vis will find authentic Croatian cuisine and wine in abundance. As such, it's quite popular with sailing enthusiasts.
