Mini Sailing trips (3-4 days) Croatia

Are there any options available for a 3 - 4 day mini sailing trip from Split to Dubrovnik at the end of May 2020. We are family of 4 including 2 daughters in their mid 20's. We have looked at option of island hopping using ferries and at the many sailing options which mostly are 6 night trips. Unfortunately we don't have this time. But we do want to travel to a few of the islands (happy with recommendations). So many of these advertised trips are also for those under 39 yrs. When they cater for ages above this or all ages or in a family type trip it is assumed that luxury cruising with all the trimmings is required. We are not luxury cruise people, don't want a cruise on a big boat, and have looked at a small gulet type vessel, basic accommodation, and looking to be active and have fun. Don't even need to have all meals included, happy to consider half board? Basically we are flexible and trying to make the best of our time of a 6 night trip in Croatia which will also include a day trip or overnight to Montenegro. Or what other options are there, that are not going to ruin the budget. It may be that using ferries and staying overnights on a few islands - any recommendations on this? At this stage we have not committed to starting in Split if its easier done or an option from Dubrovnik to Split.

I have a suggestion for you, but please know that I have not done this myself. Have a look at the Croatian Tourism Board website under "Travel Info", then "Travel Agencies". In reviewing this list, I see a couple of agencies promoting "Nautical Tourism". One of the agencies even mentions chartering a gulet. The agency is in Split. You could work with them through email if you find something of interest.

Check We just booked a 7 day cruise, max 38 people, for Sept but I remember seeing shorter cruises. Another company is Sail Croatia.
