Nautical tourists who rent vessels in Croatia spent HRK 4.8 billion from the start of the year until the end of October, the Croatian Chamber of Commerce stated on Monday.
Of that amount, almost a third, that is above 30 percent, went on what those visitors enjoyed in cultural tourism and local cuisine.
These figures were presented during the first Yacht Charter Conference called "Booking Manager Summit", which is taking place in Zagreb on Monday and Tuesday.
This educational and networking conference for charter professionals intends to enable charter professionals to gain knowledge from leading experts in sales, marketing, SEO, photography and taxes.
"Yacht chartering is the most important segment of nautical tourism in Croatia," Ivan Soza, the head of the HGK county branch in Sibenik, informed the conference,
Croatia has 4,500 vessels, 140 marinas and 17,000 berths for nautical tourism.
