If I were you I would not take it for granted as in Croatia you must possess a valid license for vessels at sea. There are some unofficial rules that under 50hp (horsepower) you don’t need a license, and these small boats usually have 5hp or 10hp. For boats over 50hp they will ask you to show them a license.
In Croatia, it is possible to obtain a license within one day, after passing the exam (usually 10 basic questions).
The exam must be registered in advance at least 7 days at the nearest Harbor Captains Office (Port Authority) where you want to pass the exam.
