“I am convinced that the largest marina chain in the Mediterranean and a strong partner such as the Lürssen Group, which is recognised worldwide as a leader in the construction of superyachts, will contribute to creating a whole new image of Rijeka.”

The president of the Association of Marinas of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce, Sean Lisjak, says that the ACI Marina Rijeka project is another trump card that will improve Croatian tourism in its totality. Two renowned names in the world of boating industry should additionally position Rijeka in a sector where Croatia has just begun to reach its full potential.

‘We definitely welcome the action taken by ACI and the construction of ACI Marina Rijeka, which will bring benefit to all the factors in the Croatian economy. Megayachts are just beginning to discover Croatia, so ACI’s project is also a step in the right direction, towards the sector of tourism in which our country has not been overly present until now. I am convinced that the largest marina chain in the Mediterranean and a strong partner such as the Lürssen Group, which is recognised worldwide as a leader in the construction of superyachts, will contribute to creating a whole new image of Rijeka. ACI Marina Rijeka has all the preconditions for setting new standards in the region and becoming the centre for nautical tourism in this part of the Adriatic,’ Sean Lisjak explains.

During the pandemic year 2020, the Croatian coast became attractive to megayachts, and the world’s leading charter brokers now recommend Croatia as a must-see destination.
‘The fact is that megayachts have started coming to the Croatian coast for a number of reasons. We are a safe destination with very good transport connections; we have recognisable cuisine and rich culture. We should use all these advantages to develop this destination. This means building infrastructure, improving tourism offer, and, ultimately, the arrival of luxury brands that attract people on megayachts. ACI Marina Rijeka is a project for the future, with which the Rijeka Riviera is entering the elite segment of tourism,’ says the President of the Association of Marinas of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce.
