With travel finally resuming after a lengthy period of restrictions, it’s time to enjoy the world again – for many that means setting out from the Czech Republic in search of coastlines of golden sands and blue water this summer.

If tourist packages that deliver you to crowded beaches or swimming pools in an expensive resort aren’t your idea of a great escape, a private boat with your own professional captain offers freedom and flexibility.

KABUKI – a private sailing yacht named after a traditional form of Japanese theater – promises passengers more than a vacation. Located at the stunning Marina Kremik, in the heart of the Dalmatian Coast, it provides luxurious accommodation for up to eight people. 

Croatia’s coastline with many islands to explore within 1–2 hours sailing distance, is a great way for families and first-time sailors to experience life aboard a boat.

“Our experienced captain knows little treasures all over Croatia and can bring visitors to amazing family-run seafood restaurants that are hidden from the crowd and can only be reached by private boat,” says a spokesperson for KABUKI.

“The journey is often planned according to weather and wind – but it's always safe and always beautiful.”

Kosa Art Group international, a Prague-based branding and design studio created the yacht’s stunning interiors in the Japanese Ryokan Style – which has a chic but cozy feel to it.

"Guests often say it feels like it's their very own yacht, which isn't always the case with all charter boats," say KABUKI reps.

Inspired by Kabuki theater, the new and fully equipped Dufour 56 Exclusive boat references this Asian art form with authentic ink prints on the walls, a bamboo headboard in the main cabin, Japanese kitchen utensils, and Japanese pottery.

While renting a private yacht may sound spendy, the experience is more affordable than you’d think; when splitting the costs between three families or groups, the price is actually lower than what you'd pay for renting multiple hotel rooms or a villa for one large family.

Prices for a week-long rental start at €5,100 and include three cabins, two showers, three toilets, 3 double beds and a convertible living room, a fully equipped kitchen with a dishwasher, and two refrigerators, a washing machine, entertainment system, WiFi, and multicolored LED ambient lighting.

Outside, there’s a table with seating and sun cushions, a swimming platform, an outdoor shower, and an electric grill. 

Frequent flights to Split and Dubrovnik during the summer season, as well as an overnight train, make Croatia a popular summer destination for visitors from the Czech Republic. It’s also a beautiful drive from the Czech Republic, that takes you through Austria, Italy, and Slovenia. 

If you’re looking for a unique week away this spring or summer, why not conquer the seas on a boat rather than just watch it from the shore?
