Croatia’s 121 boating ports generated 753 million kuna (100 million euros) before tax in revenue last year, growth of 5.1% from the previous year, the Croatian Bureau of Statistics reported…

The majority of the revenue, around 70%, was generated by berth rentals at the 121 boating ports in Croatia. The Bureau of Statistics revealed that there were 17,350 berths at 121 ports last year. There were 9 more boating ports in Croatia last year.

At the end of 2015 there were around 13,000 vessels permanently berthed in Croatia, which was 3% less than at the end of 2014. The flag state for a majority of these vessels was Croatia with 43.6% of the total, followed by Austria (16.6%), Germany (15.2%), Italy and Slovenia (5.2% each) and the United Kingdom (2.3%).

The Dalmatian city of Zadar had the most ports – 36, but the largest income generated at boating ports was in the Šibenik-Knin County.

“The increased revenue and number of boating ports in that period indicates a certain tendency in consumption of nautical tourists,” the Croatian Chamber of Commerce noted.

The number of vessels in transit in 2015 was 193,450, 6.7% more than in 2014.
