Zadar is in the heart of Dalmatia and is one of the most visited Croatian holiday destinations.

The over 3.000 year old town is a perfect mix of now and then. Antic ruins, historic villas and churches, attractive courtyards with restaurants, cafes and nightlife spots all make Zadar an interesting and lively place to visit. The vivacious old town centre is a walk through historic eras. Remains of Roman buildings, medieval city walls and gates, but also modern landmarks, like the sun’s square and sea front walk add a cultural highlight to any Croatian holiday.
The absolute must-go-and-see is the town’s new landmark, the sea organ. Just like any organ works by blowing wind through different sized pipes, this organ worked by the flow of sea water in and out of different sized pipes. Depending on the weather, the beautiful sounds can be heard up to 3 km away.
The large choice on tourist attractions and historic sights make Zadar to a favourite starting location for sailing trips.

General conditions


Mate, turistička agencija (in further text: Mate, turitička agencija) based on General Conditions, as well as on Brokerage Contract for accommodation services, provides a user with a multi-day accommodation service aboard vessels adapted for transportation of persons on a cruise trip, and guarantees technical compliance and good condition of all its vessels. The person who has confirmed reservation for one or more vessels, or has paid the deposit (in further text: Service User) establishes a legal relationship with Mate, turistička agencija and confirms acceptance of these General Conditions. Everything stated in these General Conditions is legally binding both for Mate, turistička agencija and the Service User. All eventual disputes between the Service User and Mate, turistička agencija are to be settled based on these Conditions.


The prices of accommodation service are stated in euro (EUR), in the current Mate, turistička agencija price list. The service will be billed using middle exchange rate of the Croatian National Bank (HNB) on the day of the payment, with a 13% VAT included. Mate, turistička agencija price list is subject to change without prior notice. Stated prices include: accommodation on technically flawless and clean vessels with full fuel tanks, use of all vessel equipment, compulsory and comprehensive (Casco) vessel insurance, crew accident insurance, home marina berth, license for sailing in Croatia, vessel concession permit. The price does not include port dues and other dues charged in other marinas, as well as fuel expenses and the cost of other necessities, car parking, and crew health insurance.


The users of accommodation service including overall vessel equipment can use the vessels only after they have made the payment according to the terms of payment. (50% of the price is to be paid at vessel reservation and the remainder at least 4 weeks prior to the beginning of the accommodation service.) Reservations made during the 4-week period prior to the beginning of accommodation service must be paid in full. By making the advance payment, Service User confirms that he is fully informed about all characteristics and terms under which the accommodation service on a certain vessel is provided. By making the advance payment, everything stated in these Conditions becomes legally binding both for the Service User and for Mate, turistička agencija.


If the Service User, for whatever reason, wants to cancel the accommodation services aboard a vessel, he must submit his request in written form (by e-mail, or by regular mail).The date the written cancellation notification was received by  Mate, turistička agencija represents the basis for the calculation of cancellation charges in the following way:

  • cancellation up to 2 months prior to the beginning of accommodation service – charges 30% of the accommodation service price;
  • cancellation up to 1 month prior to the beginning of accommodation service – charges 50% of the accommodation service price;
  • cancellation within one month prior to the beginning of accommodation service – charges 100% of the accommodation service price.

Service User who has cancelled the accommodation service may, after previously consulting with Mate, turistička agencija, find another person who will assume his rights and obligations. If he doesn’t find a replacement, the cancellation fee will be charged as stated above.

If the accommodation service is cancelled due to objective reasons (death of a close family member, an accident involving heavy injury, a sudden acute condition requiring immediate medical care, pregnancy complications, military exercise etc.), the paid amount will not be refunded. Instead, the Service User is allowed to use the paid amount for another time period of the current or the next year. It is Service User’s obligation to provide an authentic document (proof).In case of force majeure (war, unrest, strikes, terrorist acts, sanitary problems, natural disasters, official authority interventions etc.), Mate, turistička agencija shall not be liable for any modifications and not carrying out the rented services in whole or in part. In any case, the purchase of trip cancellation insurance is recommended, which would cover accommodation service cancellation.


Mate, turistička agencija will hand over only completely equipped and technically flawless vessels with full fuel and water tanks and expects the vessels to be returned in the same condition. The vessel handover takes place on Saturdays from 5 PM to 9 PM (from 17:00 to 20:00).

If the Service User fails to take over the vessel within 48 hours of the predetermined handover time, without any previous notice, Mate, turistička agencija is entitled to unilaterally terminate the contract for provision of accommodation services, and the Service User shall not be entitled to any subsequent indemnity claims. If, for whatever reason, Mate, turistička agencija is not able to put the booked vessel at disposal at the appointed place and time, it can provide another vessel, having at least the same characteristics. If Mate, turistička agencija is unable to provide alternative vessel within 24 hours, Service User has a right to cancel the use of the vessel and have the paid service reimbursed. In case the Service User should choose to wait for the replacement vessel beyond the deadline agreed for the vessel handover (24 hours), he shall be entitled to claim an amount in the equivalent of the accommodation service value for the number of days he has not had the vessel at his disposal. Mate, turistička agencija shall not be held liable for the amount exceeding the arranged accommodation service price, as well as for any other Service User’s claim to indemnity. When taking over the vessel, the Service User is obliged to examine and carefully check the general condition of the vessel and its equipment according to the inventory list and immediately identify the deficiencies; otherwise it will be considered that there is no objection to it. Possible hidden deficiencies of the vessel and/or its equipment, which could not have been known to Mate, turistička agencija at the time of the handover of the vessel, as well as the deficiencies possibly arising after the handover, shall not entitle the Service User to claim any reduction of the accommodation price. If the vessel equipment and inventory do not match the inventory list provided to the Service User, he shall not be entitled to claim any reduction of the accommodation price – provided that the safety of navigation is unaffected. Service User is not entitled to refuse check-in, suspend navigation and seek financial reimbursement in case of any defects, instrument deviations and similar equipment and inventory problems, provided that proper navigation is possible through classical methods, and the safety of vessel and crew guarantees a good sail. Every complaint based on comparison of the vessel and its inventory with other charter company’s vessels or other countries’ standards is unfounded. If Mate, turistička agencija finds that the Service User/vessel manager does not have navigation skills required for operating a vessel, Mate, turistička agencija reserves the right to prohibit the sail out of a vessel. In that case Mate, turistička agencija will appoint an official skipper to join the crew and charge this service according to current price list. If the client refuses the appointed skipper, Mate, turistička agencija has the right to forbid the sailing out of the vessel, to terminate the contract, and to keep the full amount paid for the accommodation service. The client has no right to reimbursement claims. The vessel is to be handed over to the Service User with all the valid documents (license, application form, concession…) as well as other files from the vessel’s folder (list of Harbour master’s offices, gas stations, etc.). The Service User is bound to take particular care of all the entrusted documents and return them to Mate, turistička agencija during check-out procedure. If Mate, turistička agencija is fined by an authorized inspection or other authorities of the Republic of Croatia for not having complete necessary documentation aboard a vessel, Mate, turistička agencija holds the client responsible by recourse, and the fine is to be paid from the client’s deposit.


The Service User is obliged to return the vessel at the appointed time, no later than 9 AM on the last day of provision of accommodation services, into the destination port defined by the contract. The vessel is to be neat and clean, with a full fuel tank, ready for setting sail, i.e. in the same condition it was in before boarding. The client is obliged to take garbage off the vessel and leave it at the designated garbage zone in the marina. If, for whatever reason, further sailing isn’t possible or exceeding the agreed return time is inevitable, the client must contact the base manager for further instructions. If the Service User exceeds the agreed return time due to bad weather conditions, the Service User shall bear all relevant costs and expenses incurred by Mate, turistička agencija. Therefore, it is recommended to carefully plan the route, and it is required to return the vessel to marina in the evening hours of the day before the vessel handover. If the agreed return time should be exceeded, the Service User is obliged to pay double rate of daily accommodation for every day of delayed return, with a possible obligation to further compensate for losses and expenses arising for Mate, turistička agencija. The Service User bears all costs arising from exceeding the check-out time. Exceptions to this rule are possible, but require express consent of the Mate, turistička agencija and the Service User. If the vessel should be returned into a port not agreed upon as the destination harbour, the Service User is obliged to pay all the costs related to the transfer of the vessel to the arranged destination harbour, stipulated penalty for delay, if any, as well as compensation for any damage not covered by insurance policy which occurred during the transfer. If, for whatever reason, Service User leaves the vessel before carrying out the check-out procedure with a Mate, turistička agencija employee, he assumes responsibility for all noted complaints and damages incurred during the use of services, as identified by Mate, turistička agencija equipment shall be performed, and a Mate, turistička agencija representative will compare the found inventory and the equipment to the inventory list. Service User is obliged to report all possible defects and damage to the Mate, turistička agencija representative. If the damage has incurred on the underwater part of the vessel, or such damage is suspected, a detailed examination of the vessel must be performed with a help from a scuba diver or a crane. The method of examination shall be decided upon by Mate, turistička agencija, and the Service User will be charged for the cost of the procedure.


When taking over the vessel, the Service User is obliged to leave a deposit according to the current price list, which is given back to the Service User if the vessel is returned undamaged and at the appointed time, provided there are no third-party claims aimed toward the Service User, and there are no fines imposed on Mate, turistička agencija in relation to the use of the chartered vessel. If the accommodation service includes a skipper, caution money deposit is also obligatory. Service User will be charged for all costs arising from gross negligence and/or loss of one or several parts of the vessel. Mate, turistička agencija shall retain the deposit amount corresponding to the value of the repair, acquisition and/or procurement of the equipment or an individual part of the vessel. If further provision of accommodation services aboard a vessel has been made impossible due to the damage/loss of the vessel/equipment, Mate, turistička agencija shall retain the deposit amount corresponding to the profit lost during vessel repair.


The vessel is covered by a third-party liability insurance and against the liability of the third person (compulsory insurance) and, also, comprehensive (Casco) insurance up to the registered value of the vessel (according to the insurance policy). The Casco insurance covers any damage exceeding the deposit amount, but not the damage caused intentionally or due to gross negligence (according to terms of the insurance company). Mate, turistička agencija is not held liable for any loss and/or damage to the property of the Service User, other passengers and crew members, or to other persons’ property disposed and stored on the vessel or on Mate, turistička agencija premises. Having paid the required advance payment and having accepted the General Conditions, Service User waives any indemnity claims from Mate, turistička agencija related to the loss and/or damage to his personal property and/or property of others. The personal possessions of the crew are not insured, so it is recommended for the Service User to take out a separate insurance policy for this purpose. The crew is insured. Accidents aboard vessel and loss or damage to personal belongings or luggage are not covered by the insurance. In case of a large scale damage during provision of accommodation services, for which the Service User doesn’t have to bear the costs (normal wear and tear and/or the amount of the deposit is exceeded), he will need to get a permission (instructions) for repair from Mate, turistička agencija related or the base manager. In case of a large scale vessel accident, as well as in case of involvement of other vessels, it is necessary to report the case to the closest harbour master’s office and run a protocol (the course of events, determination of damages) for the insurance company, as well as to inform Mate, turistička agencija related about the accident. If the Service User doesn’t carry out all these obligations, he may be charged for all damages incurred. The sails are not insured so the Service User bears all costs of sails damage in full amount. Engine damage resulting from the lack of oil in the engine is also not covered by insurance. Service User is obliged to check the engine oil. The user can’t hold Mate, turistička agencija related legally liable for any consequences arising from user’s fault or negligence which could create Mate, turistička agencija related liability to third parties. Also, in that case Mate, turistička agencija related shall not bear any legal costs, whether at home or abroad.

Questions & answers

1. Is it necessary to always hire a professional skipper?

It is necessary if you are on a boat for a fist time, i.e. if you don’t have necessary permits (boat steering permit and VHF permit). Cases where a boat is rented together with the crew are exceptions.

2. Are the vessel and the crew insured?

Each vessel and crew is insured for possible damage.

3. What should I take with me?

When going on a boat, you need to take your clothes, items for personal hygiene, towels (can be rented) and medicaments. You should also take some warmer clothes and water-proof jacket in case of bad weather, and you should also pay attention to having shoes on that are appropriate for the boat. You can buy food and drinks in the marine or in one of the shops near the marine. Also, you can provide us your provisionary list and we’ll do the shopping for you (you’ll pay everything on the check in).

4. Where can I leave the car while I’m sailing?

Marina Zadar has a large and secured parking place, the price is around 10 € per day/car,

5. Is it better to spend the night in the marina or in some of the bays?

It is definitely better to choose a marina or a small port with electricity, water and other ”perks” of civilization and it will also be safe in case of bad weather. Also, there are numerous safe and protected bays with buoys to which you can tie your vessel. The least safe way is to sleep in an anchored vessel and we advise you against that.

6. Which currencies are usual for paying?

In Croatia one must pay with Kuna, it is the official means of payment. There are exchange offices in the marinas, so that you wouldn’t encounter some problems if you run out of Kuna. In restaurants and shops you can pay with your credit cards
