Presenting Nautika centar Nava

Nautika centar Nava is one of the oldest privately owned nautical companies in Croatia. We started as a charter company in 1990 and evolved to a firm with over 30 employees, experts on the boating industry:

These 3 areas of business co-exist and complement each other as do our employees. We offer anything you might need regarding boating:

- Authorized Dealership of some of the world's most renowned shipbuilders - Bénéteau, LagoonMonte Carlo Yachts, Sea Ray, Boston Whaler, and X-Yachts.

Brokerage - buying a pre-owned boat or selling one can be hassle-free

- Assistance and Consulting regarding all aspects of boat purchase or sale - from boat transport, import, registration, all legal and/or financial issues, insurance, mooring, boating equipment, and all modifications that you might need on a boat

- After-sales - equipping your boat with everything you might wish from cushions, awnings, winches, gennakers to minor layout modifications; our electrician, carpenter, plastics moulder, and engine service are here to indulge your needs.

- Engine service - superb service of the boat's drive is the task of our Volvo Penta Center, with a workshop and spare part shop with optimal stock inventory

- Charter management - turning your purchase into an investment while enjoying all the perks of owning a boat

- Boat Charter - booking the right boat for your party, suggesting routes, finding the right crew (skipper, hostess, chef)

- Travel Agent & Event Organizer - your next corporate event is due on boats and we offer top service in this area. We have organized 4 Adriatic Lagoon Regattas and a few corporate regattas and team-building events.

We have been working on all these activities for the past 31 years and are looking forward to new challenges. And let's not forget Accounting, Marketing, and Management who all contribute to our company's goals, image as a trustworthy partner

Our greatest asset is our team - a group of well-trained, educated experts and our vision is to stay the leading company in the boating industry, in Croatian and European markets, as well as remote markets outside Europe, through quality and excellent customers relations.

Our mission is to ensure stable growth of our company, retain and/or attract the best employees and invest in their education and training and achieve a competitive advantage in all relevant markets via service quality and without lowering our prices.

As EU funds have been approved to our company in January 2015, we will modernize our business this year with some software and hardware, an Info Kiosk might be the most interesting to our clients in 2016, and we also plan to start a new base in Slano, near Dubrovnik and to enable one-way charters.

Here are the virtuosos behind these elaborate schemes:
