The wind tended to be really good for sailing after lunch each day with very calm waters at night and in the morning. The boat ('Enjoy' - 51.1 Oceanis) was perfect for the party of eight - plenty of room and space and an absolute joy to handle. The bow thrusters made Med mooring pretty easy, even in a cross wind. We motored most mornings (fuel economy for the 51.1 is excellent) and sailed like demons every afternoon. Our average daily transit was 20nm to 25nm (about 4hrs). The boat is really fast even in light winds and is really nimble in tight spaces. I'd bareboat charter it again without even thinking! The service from the crew at Danielis and partners was smooth and faultless from start to finish. An excellent outfit to deal with. I'll be back as soon as I can organise it!
We left Seget Donji on the 18th September for a week of fantastic sailing which took us to some outstanding places including Drvenik Veli, Solta, Brac, Hvar, Vis and back again.

Amazing trip, fabulous weather, great skipper
We were part of a 2 catamaran trip with friends in August. We set sail from Trogir and visited Solta, Stari Grad, Vis, Vrboska and each little bay we stopped at was breathtaking. The skippers were a wealth of knowledge and looked after us well. There were pros and cons with each boat. Whilst each bedroom on the samira had its own bathroom, the Elea had solar power so more access to battery charging and the option of fans in the bedrooms. The temps ranged from 24-34C so the fans would have been a great addition to the Samira. Tina was a fantastic skipper and single-handedly sailed us everywhere with very little input from our inexperienced group. She explained everything in great detail and would keep to herself at times, but was very friendly and a welcome addition to the group for a late afternoon drink. Daniel on the other yacht was also spoken of extremely highly by the guests on elea and both were lots of fun, as well as putting us all at ease. The children particularly took to Tina as in total we were a party of 6 adults and 9 children. Amazing destinations, a host of water activities and sports, some once in a lifetime experiences and delicious food in picturesque restaurants. Definitely worth the money and time to see this beautiful country. We will be back.

We had an excellent experience booking our week long sailing yacht charter with danielis yachting. Zeljana was very helpful and responsive and gave good advice to find the right boat. We chartered a 2017 Lagoon 45 which is a very comfortable boat for a family of four and a skipper.
The charter was ultimately managed by Cata Sailing after booking through Danielis who appears to be a booking agar t that works with many charter companies. The boat was in excellent condition although we did have a few issues as always happens with boats. Cata worked to resolve them in a timely fashion. The boat was delivered late to our starting point in Trogir because the prior charter ended in Dubrovnik. As a result, we got the boat later than agreed on Saturday and ended up staying the first night in the marina at Trogir. Our skipper was amazing. Bojan Berlengi is a great sailor and companion and was a lot of fun to spend our week with. We sailed to Hvar, Vis, Korcula, Scedro, and other islands. We are at amazing restaurants - some were thronged others we had almost to ourselves. Everything was delicious. We will come again.

This is not the first time I am using Your service in finding the boat last minute in Croatia, and I was always very happy. Also recommended You to some other friends, and I know that one at leas also already used Your services min 3 times. I was not that exited with ELAN 40 boat in general, but this is more concerns builder not You. Presence of A/C in this warm summer apparently was very positive point. I would like to point out that Your service was all time on high level, quick, clear, client friendly. Just to add few words for final on palce company Y4Y, as I saw boat "LIR" is one or the best in their fleet, but she is quite used after only 2 years, sails are very stretched, hard to believe they are 2 years old. Interior are more or less ok. External deck especially cockpit, in my opinion deserve better housekeeping, teak wood was dirty and greasy. Few minor failures which i fix myself easily.
Trip went very well, we reserve marinas on line and been very happy with it. Boat, a part of previous comments was good, just may be me prefer more Hanse or Beneteu. Thank You, Hope corrective actions will be in place, will be happy to see You next year.

We just concluded our 1 week catamaran charter with Danielis Yachting. Everything was great, starting with the reservation, through last minute preparations, we opted the early check-in. The most important was to have a good skipper, as all of us are quite novices in Yachting. Thanks to our skipper - Marko Gomez Karadza - this week was just awesome!!! Professional, attentive, caring. This young fellow does really well his job Thank you Danielis and Marko in particular, you will hear from us soon with the new charter.

Very nice trip, the boat was good and easy to manage in any situation. Danieli yachting is a very good organization supporting you from the planning till the last day
We did a trip passing through the following harbors: Split, Maslinica, Milna, Vrboska, Palmizana.

Everything was perfect!
We did a circuit Split, Solta, Brac, Hvar, Vis, Solta, Split. The boat was in great condition, the right size for four of us and we had a lot of great sailing. Ivan was great and everything was really easy. We will definitely be coming back to Croatia!

Capten Domagoj was very serviceminded and kind very easy to work with and knew a lot of places worth visiting. The hostess Ivana was also kind but perhaps little unexperienced. Maybe she needs a little more training for her task. What I specifically missed is introducing the passengers to the boat facility, rules, how the toalets are used etc
Fully satisfied except from the miss understanding with the “VIP-package” wich turned up to be a warm proseco bottle and early boarding. Expected little more from something called a VIP-package.

Great experience sailing the Costa Smerelda
We had a lovely time sailing the Sardinian emerald coast and Corsica. Our excellent skipper expertly navigated the winds which ensured that we didn't miss out on any of the beautiful coastal spots along the way.
By Michael L. Departure date 14. 07. 2018
Our trip experience was absolutely excellent! The Skipper Marco and hostes Antonella were so kind, and respectful and helpful all along the trip. We strongly recommend both of them. The boat was in perfect conditions, we loved it!

Thanks to Tea who perfectly organised everything, the wonderful catamaran and the warm, fantastic crew we had a holiday we will never forget! Our first experience with sailing, but defintely not the last one.
By Els V. Departure date 07. 07. 2018
Enjoyed the boat- it sails well for a charter cat (up to 10Kn -60 off the wind)- Crew were excellent and good company - but boat could have been better prepared by Pitter( 1 fridge was not turned on and took a day to cool down- anchor chain was not connected to boat so was lost and we had to dive with crew to recover it - geenaker was not supplied as ripped and no spare available) Nevertheless a v.good charter.

It was a really good sailing week and th Sail Yacht was overall good, sails and motor and equipment. But there were a couple of things that were not that good, as the main sail tacking wagon and block.
Sailing from Dubrovnik to Sipan, Mljet and Kortsula and back to Dubrovnik.

Good, with some tweeks.
Great trip with a great boat. Expedient handling upon arrival, and good check out. Check out guide where not all that familiart wit the boat as could not answer some few questions on functionality of valves etc. The boat was almost 10 years old and we expected that there where some minor faults which was of little importance to the overall functionality of the boat. (Level measurtements in water tanks showing full tank all time, cockpit table light not working, a few scratches here and there. Most of these not mentioned in the check out list as to small items and not importaint for the overall equippment and functionality check out. The boat was very clean and all beds prepared with linen and towels. A very positive surprise compared to some previous experiences. A dissapointing end experienced this time (Also seen before while renting boat) is the try to get something out of the deposite money. This time they clamed that we had bent one of the railing supports. By looking carefully it could be seen that it was sligtly bent. Boat Company claimed we had done it. We where not aware of any situation where this could have happened. Then they claimed it could have been done by someone else than us during our rental period. I got the impression they knew about this from before and tried to get some deposite money out of the situation. They gave up in the end. (Seen this kind of situation before also with a different rental Company where they first try then apologise for missunderstanding etc.) I would of course had paied if something was obviousely happened with the boat during my rental period, but this kind of behaviour I find very discouraging, and drops the rating of this trip.

Best vacation we ever had!
We sailed with Tina who made this trip a dream come true. She took us to beautiful spots along the coast. Davor was once again very helpful with arranging the entire trip, making sure we had the type of boat we wished for and a great skipper. Have booked through Danielis Yachting twice now and will always come back! Thank you!
By Sam S. Departure date 07. 07. 2018
A+ - would rebook in a heartbeat!
The theme of the trip was extremely helpful staff. Our skipper - Ivan Vekic - was very helpful in explaining the ins and outs of yacht life, providing excellent suggestions, recommendations, and enlivening our entire trip! He was even able to quickly fix the AC units when there were some issues. Tea from Danielis was very patient and quick at replying to the many, many questions we had, thank you as well for your help. We loved sailing, swimming, and exploring Croatia as you can only do with your own aquatic transport.

A wonderful holiday and an exciting time for all of six of us.
Our second trip on a catamaran Lagoon 42 and just as wonderful experience as our first in Greece. This time we were treated to the wonderful islands of Kornati in Croatia. Our skipper Bozo was helpful, knowledgeable and knew all the best restaurants where he reserved moorings and a table ahead each day. We had fun stopping off to snorkel in the lovely clear water at lunch times. We departed from Sukosin Marina and apart from a mix up on our taxi pick up and some problems with the electric on board at the start of the holiday which meant a bit of a late start and a detour to Biograd it was perfection. The La Mar was just the right size and the sundeck on top was an added space for sunbathing. Would definitely recommend this type of holiday for a mix of generations, as plenty to occupy everyone and the boat big enough to have your own space too!

We've spent a lovely week on the Adriatic, sailing from Dubrovnik (Slano) to Split via Mljet, Korcula, Vis, Hvar, Brac. The catamaran Babulica, the weather and the sailing route were great. But our outmost appreciation goes to the skipper Marko Gomez Karadza. He made us feel at home on the cat, he is a very experienced sailor, with attention for all passengers (young and a little older :-). Very sympathetic, easy going, smart and accommodating at all times. Happy to have a new friend! Fam. Hertogs, Belgium

We couldn't have wished for a better sailing experience. But Angelina should review their procedures to make the in and out process slicker
Check was a hot and sweat affair due to too many clients being registered in a small office at the same time. The hand over the boat was lacking in detail and there was no briefing on the sailing area, not even pilot books on board. The sailing, food and people were fabulous. Handing back the boat again took too long all the boats arrived at the same time. We booked from Saturday to Saturday but in reality we could sail only Sunday to Friday.

We sailed from with Ciccoco (Sun fast 26), me and my girlfriend. We did a round trip around the Kornati area. The place is amazing and quiet.

The boat was as described and nice and new. Some parts were a little problematic including the outboard which had seen better days and we never got to work properly. Tank gauges also did not work.
Great boat, easy to handle and with a powerful but quiet engine. Plenty of accommodation and shady cockpit which is where we spent most of our time. Anchor seemed a little small for the size of the boat and we had issues getting it set properly. Main complaint is that Croatia is VERY crowded in the high season and marinas are expensive.
