From Passion to Business

The idea of starting a business came to Ferenc Szor in 2004, when he was about to buy his first sailing boat in Croatia. As an experienced Hungarian sailor, he has recognized the need for a reliable and flexible partner who would be a perfect choice both for his fellow yacht owners and the sailing community in general. It took him only a few weeks from the idea to developing a business model that resulted in establishing Candor Charter fleet.

Back in 2005, Candor Charter started operating with only two sailing boats. The initial goal had been to serve Hungarian market needs, but when Gabor Szor brother of Ferenc joined the team, this scope was broadened to the international charter market. Gabor started to work as managing director of the company in 2007 and soon his wife Ari also joined the team.

The fleet has been growing gradually ever since reaching 14 sailing yachts all based in Marina Kaštela, while at the same time keeping the quality of service high.

Family Company You Can Rely On

The team has been working together for 12 years and their happy family spirit is very well recognized by the customers. As they like to highlight: "Team members are not the employees of the company, the team is the company!" Dedicated local service staff that maintains the fleet during the entire year is perfectly familiar with the sailing area and their knowledge is a great resource to any guest on sailing holiday.

Candor Charter fleet concept is to focus on the expectations of the clients. In Marina Kaštela, they offer well equipped, premium models from French shipyards Jeanneau and Dufour, as well as some more affordable yachts which makes them an excellent choice for every budget.

Candor Charter team is constantly doing their best with the guests and with business partners, always keeping in mind the true meaning of company name "Candor" - the quality of being open and honest.

Like every small start-up company, Candor Charter has started its business organization using a piece of paper and later upgrading to an Excel spreadsheets.
