TipsIt is good to know
The boats are rentable with or without skipper. A boat licence is needed for every boat.
They are all fully equipped with all the required equipment (anchor, ropes, life jackets, first aid equipment, paddles and similar), signalisation (lights, horns and similar).
The boats will be given in good condition, clean and with a full tank of fuel. The fuel goes on the charters charges. Eventual damage up to 1.000,00 EUR caused by the carelessness of the charterer will be on his charges. The rental price includes the cleaning and storage after the use. The retrieving of the boat will take place on the "Murter-Boats.com" dock or on other locations when so agreed.
Book in advance
When you book in advance you will almost always get a better deal than at the counter. And it’s easier and quicker. Be sure to take all your documents with you as proof of hire and your rates to avoid any hassles (scan and save in your email account).
Check prices frequently
Just like when you search for boats it pays to check prices frequently as they do change – different periods can have different rates in preseason, postseason or in the middle of summer season in Murter - Croatia. Anyway check them in right time.
Are boats well maintained?
Before deciding to rent a boat you need to make sure that the boat is in good working order and that it has been well maintained. You will be able to get a sense of the quality of the boats because our company is one of most famous authorised nautical service and dealer for Volvo Penta, Absolut Yachts and more. The answer is: "Yes, our boats are in best condition".
Charts and Maps
Think carefully about what type of boat you need. Being comfortable is important so you enjoy your summer dreams crusing at Murter and Kornati archipelago. Any boat which you rent needs to have all of the latest charts so that you can find your way around wherever you want to go. Waterways do change and that's why the latest maps are important.
All of the necessary safety equipment is already on board the boat. This is a legal requirement and you should not use the boat if any safety equipment is missing. Also check the condition of the safety equipment. In any case of wrong situation or emergency on sea call us asap.
Wherever you are sailing, communication is vital. You should take your cell phone with you and make sure you know how to use the onboard radio. Take a list of numbers with you so that you know who to contact if you ever get into difficulty.
Rent a boat with a skipper
If you are a newbie boater, you can still have a boating experience that’s tailor-made for you and your crew. Leave the group tour boats behind and book your boat rental with a skipper from Murter-Boats.com. No experience needed. Whether you’re a first time boater or old-pro, Murter-Boats.com is a great option to head out for a boat rental adventure.
Don’t Under pack and Don’t Over pack
Finding the balance of what to bring along on boat rentals is the key. Extra water, extra non-perishable snacks and extra hats or towels…all examples where more is better! So, bring the key essentials on your boat rental but don’t use up all your (often tight) boat relaxation space with coolers, bags and else. Why unpacking too much when the day is done?
Protect yourself from the sun!
The sun is more powerful as it is reflected on the water and nothing will ruin your boat rental more than a painful sunscreen or, even worse, sun poisoning. Hats, buffs and sunscreen are all key components. (Oh and be sure to reapply the sunscreen frequently.)
f course boating is almost always a casual affair so high heels can be left onshore. However, the temps and weather conditions can change quickly. A hat, an extra layer or even a dry set of clothes can come in handy when the boating adventure is going down.
Age requirements to rent a boat
Age requirements to rent a boat in Croatia is 18 yrs and you must own a boat driving licence. "Boats don’t have brakes like a car and, in addition to no brakes, water current, wind, weather and other boaters all can play a significant factor in operating.”
Shoes off, please!
It sounds like a trivial request to the non-boater; but soles scuff clean boats. The best way to show your lack of boating chops…get on the boat with shoes! Second, feel free without them on your legs ;)
