Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, August 27, 2019 – The Marina Punat Group, which includes a marina, a hotel and a shipyard, plans to invest 160 million kuna in renovation and nautical competitiveness by 2025, reporters were told in Punat on Krk island on Monday.

Minister Gari Cappelli, present at the press conference, highlighted Croatia’s nautical tourism and underlined the importance of investing in quality product.

Croatia has 72 marinas with 17,500 berths in total as well as 20,000 dry berths, he said, adding that 480,000 arrivals and 3.1 million nights were expected in chartering this year.

About 54,000 boats have docked in Croatia this year and average spending per person is 126 euro in nautical tourism and 186 euro in boat chartering, the minister said.

Cappelli said nautical and health tourism would be important segments of the tourism development strategy in the future as they resulted in higher spending and demand. “Such guests want high quality, and quality and sustainable development will make our tourism competitive also in the future.”

He said accommodation facilities which had invested in quality were fuller this year than others, adding that Croatia did not want to lower prices but offer quality product for them.

The Punat marina is the oldest marina in Croatia and the largest in the northern Adriatic with 1,450 berths on 14 piers for boats up to 40 m in length.
