Fees are charged in Croatian marinas for berths and other services. They are usually fixed and published in the autumn for the following year. For actual fees we advise to check the particular marina's website and price list.
This price list contains separate tables for daily, monthly and annual fees for mooring berths and land storage places. All prices are based on the vessel's length over all (L. o. a.). Exception is made in case of annual berth prices, where the price is determined by the vessel's width as well. Marinas reserves the right to check the reported dimensions of the vessel.
For multi-hull vessels (catamarans and trimarans) the fees may be increased by 50%, depending on availability of free capacities in the chosen marina.
On public piers in harbours under municipal authority, the local authorities have the right to charge mooring fees. The amount of the fee depends on the size of the boat and the length of pier it occupies, which means that yachts mooring alongside the pier will pay more than those mooring stern of bows to. When berthing “in a pack” (several yachts mooring alongside each other), the mooring fee is charged for every yacht.
The amount of the fee is determined by the local authority can vary from one harbor to another.
In some areas, the local authorities charge mooring fees for vessels moored in bays under their authority. In return, garbage is collected and, in some places, groceries delivered.
The extent to which fees can be charged without any service being provided will in future be regulated by law. Persons collecting mooring fees must identify themselves by producing a printed receipt.
Shopping for food presents no problems along the coast or on the islands. All marinas and harbours have well-supplied supermarkets. However, during prolonged spells of bad weather there can be a shortage of fresh vegetables and bread on small islands which do not have a regular ferry service. Food prices are comparable to those in Europe. Restaurants can be more expensive on small islands.
Fuel is easily available both on roads and in harbours. All types of petrol, including unleaded petrol, and diesel are available; however, unleaded petrol pumps and less common on piers. Petrol stations are temporarily closed for safety reasons when they are being supplied with petrol from tankers.
During off-season periods, opening hours of petrol stations can be limited to a few, usually morning, hours. During the main season, and especially in the morning hours, the large number of customers may cause queuing and considerable waiting times at petrol stations.
All Croatian marinas and some harbours have water and electricity hook-ups on the pontoon-piers.
Water: water connections are usually 1 inch in diameter, 3 inch diameter connections are much less common. Because of possible water shortages in the summer months, most Croatian marinas require yachts to use hoses with taps.
Electricity: In Croatia the current is 220 V AC. In marinas and public harbours (as well as camping grounds), three-pin "Euro-plugs" are used. In some marinas (Punat, Kremik) a number of pillars have ‘conventional’ safety sockets. The power pillars in some marinas are so wide apart (e.g. in Zut, Piskera, Palmizana) that extension leads with insulated connectors (storm, rain) are needed.
The number of power points is sometimes insufficient for all yachts that may need electricity at the same time. Well-insulated extension leads with connection elements should therefore be carried on board every yacht.
Vessels may sail and stay in the coastal seas, rivers and lakes of the Republic of Croatia if they obtain authorization. Foreign sport rowing and sailing vessels up to 3 m length, and motor boats up to 3 m length with a motor up to 4 kW may sail and stay in coastal waters, rivers and lakes without authorization
Definition: "boat" is an open sports boat (e.g. dinghy, a rubber boat) which does not have sleeping facilities. A "yacht" is a boat with a covered cabin.
If the owner or master of a foreign vessel wishes to sail and stay in coastal waters, rivers and lakes, after entering the coastal sea, river or lake he must take the shortest route to the nearest port or harbor open to international traffic, register his arrival with the authorized body in that harbor and apply for authorization to sail.
Permanent: Umag, Poreč, Rovinj, Pula, Raša-Bršica, Rijeka, Mali Lošinj, Senj, Zadar, Šibenik, Split, Ploče, Metković, Korčula and Dubrovnik.
Seasonal (open from 1 April to 30 October) Novigrad, Sali, Bozava, Ravni Zakanj (Kornati), Ubli (Lastovo), Komiza (Vis), Vis (Vis) and Hvar.
If upon entering Croatian waters a vessel cannot reach a port open to international traffic because of "force majeure", it must register as soon as possible at the nearest harbourmaster's office or its branch offices.
When leaving the Croatian territorial waters, the skipper must call at a port open to international traffic and go through the necessary formalities (informing the harbourmaster of his departure). The yacht must then leave the Croatian territorial waters without delay and by the shortest route.
