Couldn’t have asked for better. From the moment of first contact with Fair Wind we have had nothing but a good experience. Ivana answered all our queries promptly and with helpful information which made our decision to choose them easy. The yacht was well equipped, clean and well looked after . And then there was the skipper what can I say ? Mishe was exceptional with his professionalism, knowledge, understanding of our preferences and along with his beautiful nature we couldn’t have had a better week. HIGHLY recommend Fair Wind Yacht Charters for an all round great experience.

Fabulous Croatian Sailing Charter What a fabulous vacation! Jen and I were treated like royalty by Ivana and her staff. Diana was our Hostess and the food she prepared was devine! Our Skipper, Mise, knew where all the best spots were and expertly navigated Wind Dancer from island to island. Please consider Fair Wind when planning your Croatian charter - you will have a memorable experience with them!!

Excellent first time sailing experience Ivana and her team were excellent starting with initial communication before booking to their information and advice/knowledge throughout and seeing us at the end of our trip. Myself and my family had a truly wonderful experience for our first time sailing. From start to finish it was faultless. Their choice of skipper was also perfect and a shout out to Filip for being a great skipper and for taking us to some amazing places that Croatia has to offer. Nothing was too much trouble and we felt relaxed at all times. We would highly recommend Fair Wind Yacht Charter and hope to return in the not too distant future! Happy sailing!

Summer wind extravaganza A great experience from the check in to check out. Ivana & Paško were very professional in every step and the boat was handed over in pristine condition. So the only thing left was to enjoy good weather and smooth sailing on 15kt winds average which were perfect for our newbie crew. See you next summer!

Perfect sailing holiday thanks to Fair Wind. Fantastic week sailing off the Dalmation coast. Fair wind were a brilliant charter operator. Booking and administration was very efficient; the boat was in great nick and perfectly equipped. More to the point, Ivana and Pasko were great hosts, with a personal touch to add to their professionalism. Highest possible recommendation.

Best vacation ever! From the moment we stepped on board your boat in ACI Split Marina, we knew it was going to be something special, and we were not disappointed. Ivana (owner), Misē (skipper) and Sunny’s (hostess) professionalism, expertise, and warm hospitality made our trip memorable. Mise took us to the most incredible bays and islands. Sunny prepared the best breakfasts and meals. We felt safe, well-cared-for, and welcomed throughout the entire voyage. This adventure has undoubtedly been one of the greatest experiences of our lifes, and we owe it all to Fair Wind. We are looking forward to sailing with Fair Wind again in the future.

Great experience I chartered in july Bavaria 41 "Morning Breeze" together with my family. The communication with Fair Wind was fast and clear, the boat was clean and in perfect condition. Everything was functional. Fair Wind is by far the best charter company. Will definitely come back.

Five stars on all levels! Fair Wind exceeded all of our expectations! Timely and clear communication with Ivana set us on the right course for a trip of a lifetime. The boat was immaculate and well appointed, comfortable day & night. The flexibility to go where we wanted to, instead of a prescribed route also made the journey a top experience. We hit the jackpot with our Skipper, Brane! The perfect balance of tying to mooring buoys and boardwalks, amazing restaurant recommendations and places to get groceries along the way... there was not one thing I would change!

Another week of lifelong memories Fairwind was always going to be our choice for our second bareboat charter on the magnificent Croatian coast. Our first experience in 2019 was perfection so we had to return with our adult children and their partners. With 9 of us we went with Ivana’s recommendation of their new 40’ catamaran, Wind Seeker. So spacious, comfortable and clever. We had a magnificent week. Ivana and Paško’s great boats and attention to detail makes sure everything goes well - nice when you’ve travelled all the way from Australia.

Superb Cruising From the prompt and informative reply to our initial email enquiry right to the time we had to regrettably finish our charter everything in this experience was excellent. The yacht was immaculately clean and extremely well maintained.Everything worked. Our skipper Zoe was exceptional. She had great technical knowledge of the weather, sailing and best destination. But even better she is a fantastic person who it was a pleasure to get to know. The cruising area is beautiful of course and this is such a great way to see it. Every day is a new adventure. Cannot recommend this as a holiday or this company to do it with highly enough.
