Boatshed Scotland won the trophy for "Yacht Broker of the year" at the 2014 Boatshed Conference and Awards ceremony.
Sprinkled like pearl drops across the crystal clear blue of the sea, the 1,244 islands, isles, cliffs, reefs and rocks that comprise the Croatian Adriatic provide 1,244 unique reasons to dream of sailing adventure. Almost ideally distributed, with distances between them not exceeding 10 nm, along a coastline extending 5,835 km, from Istria to Dubrovnik, Croatia’s islands offer a real challenge to every modern-day Odysseus. With over 1500 coves, bays and ports on islands and the mainland where one can find a berth, drop anchor or stay overnight, the Croatian Adriatic is the very place for sailing under full sail, for a motorboat cruise, or for simply enjoying the sea by boat for recreational fishing.
