General information about marinas

Berth Fees in Marinas
Fees are charged in Croatian marinas for yacht berths and other services. They are usually fixed and published in the autumn for the following year.

Mooring Fees in Public Harbours
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 yacht 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 harbour to another.

Berth Fees in Bays
In some areas, the local authorities charge mooring fees for yachts moored in bays under their authority. In return, garbage is collected and, in some places, groceries delivered. Law will in future regulate the extent to which fees can be charged without any service being provided. Persons collecting mooring fees must identify themselves by producing a printed receipt.

Buying Food
Shopping for food presents no problems along the Croatian coast or on the islands. All marinas and harbour 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
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.

Water and Electricity in Marinas
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
