Total Croatia News


Croatia is becoming one of the most desirable sailing destinations in the world.

According to Zizoo, Croatia was THE sailing destination this year, accounting for this year’s 64% of applications via the Zizzo online platform for yacht charter, reports Poslovni.hr on November 2, 2017. 

Biggest yacht charter event – the International Charter Expo (ICE) – is held in Zagreb this weekend from November 3-5, 2017, bringing together companies and agencies from 48 countries around the world, including 130 charter companies and fleet operators, 200 agencies and 40 suppliers of various goods and services in the nautical industry, operating with more than 10,000 vessels across the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, Asia, Indian and the Pacific Ocean. Around 4000 B2B meetings have been announced.

One of the exhibitors at ICE is Zizoo, an online platform for boat rentals and yacht charters, which has an impressive ‘portfolio’ of 11,000 boats at numerous locations in 30 countries around the world. The Zizoo platform is present in Croatia as of this year, with 4200 sailing boats, catamarans, speedboats, motor yachts and dinghies.

“If we take into account the growing popularity of Croatia as a tourist destination and almost the ideal conditions for sailing it offers, we are not surprised by the fact that more than 64 percent of the total number of requests and just over half the Zizoo bookings in 2017 were for the ‘Land of Thousand Islands’. The most wanted locations in Croatia were Split, Pula and Trogir. The second most wanted destination was Greece, which this year accounted for 20% of the total number of charters,” says the representative of Zizoo.

This year, 71% of Germans and more than 80% of Austrian Zizoo users have chosen the Croatian coast as their sailing destination, Zizoo adds. Croatia has even surpassed Greece as the favourite sailing destination among the UK citizens. Almost 40% of American clients opted for Croatia, too. However, Greece remains the most desirable destinations among American sailing enthusiasts.

The International Charter Expo is held at Zagreb Arena (Vice Vukova 8) today (Friday) and tomorrow (Saturday) from 10 am to 8 pm and on Sunday (November 5) from 10 am to 4 pm. For more information, visit the official website of ICE here.
