Dear guests, dear friends of our marina,

Boat owners having a berth booked at marinas are allowed to enter the Republic of Croatia.

The temporary ban on crossing the borders of the Republic of Croatia related to foreign citizens has been lifted for owners of real estate and vessels located in the Republic of Croatia and for the members of the owner's immediate family. 

Here are some general epidemiological measures your are required to follow during your stay in Croatia.

If you are planning to come to the marina, it is good to know that in addition to the documentation proving the ownership of the vessel, at the border you need to present a completed Crew and passenger list of the yacht or boat for personal use, which needs to be certified by your marina and confirm your arrival at the time indicated on the form.

Punat, 12.5.

Dear guests, dear friends of our marina,

the moment has come - the Republic of Croatia has announced a gradual easing of measures and travel possibilities to the Republic of Croatia. Intercity traffic is now open in Croatia. We understand that you are very interested to know if you can visit your boat now.

Starting with May 11th, the ban on temporary leaving the place of residence and permanent residence in the Republic of Croatia was lifted. This means that Croatian citizens no longer need e-passes to travel to another city or municipality.

According to currently available information, foreign citizens must have documentation proving the ownership of real estate located in the Republic of Croatia, or vessels, to enter Croatia. Since it is not strictly defined which documentation is required, we recommend that you have a copy of a valid berth contract and a valid berth invoice with you. Your Marina Punat mobile application can also be helpful.

When entering Croatia, you will be registered at the border in the so-called NBMIS system (National Border Management Information System), the place / address where the property or vessel is located will be registered, also contact phone number and period of your stay, or plans for your stay in Croatia.

If you are preparing to travel, we recommend that you get information in your home country about the instructions and measures that need to be implemented after returning from Croatia.

For all those who enter Croatia, prescribed epidemiological measures are mandatory, which you can read at this link, so we kindly ask you to obey them. They are very similar to the measures valid in your home country.

In the marina we have been taking  care of your boat all this time and we are preparing for your arrival and we have taken all prescribed measures of prevention and protection against Covid-19. The marina reception is open from 8 am to 4 pm, as well as the yacht service reception. The nautical shop is open from 8 am to 6 pm.
Bistro & pizzeria 9 bofora opens on Thursday, May 14, and will be open daily from 7:30 to 23:00.

We look forward to welcoming you to the marina again!

Punat, 8.5.


Dear guests, dear friends of our marina,

Every day we receive inquiries whether the marina is open and whether it is possible to come on board the boat...
We wish you were here!
We informed you some time ago that the borders have been closed since March 19, 2020. In the Republic of Croatia, the security measures ordered by the state are still in force. This means that boat owners are currently unable to enter Croatia. Exceptions are only possible if there is an invitation issued at ministerial management level or if an EU citizen can show a regular long-term right of residence to use his own property.

During their stay in Croatia, the instructions and measures ordered by the Croatian health authority apply to these people.
Similar or almost identical measures to restrict international traffic as well as preventive and protective measures are also in force in the countries where you live.
The Marina Punat was and is open during this entire time - in compliance with all prescribed protective and preventive measures. The marineros fulfil their duties of supervision and control of the boats every day; they maintain the berths and assure the cleanliness of the seabed. Our customer service informs you regularly about news and is more than happy to answer any questions you may have. You can reach us as usual during our working hours by phone or email. We are available around the clock for emergencies.
At the same time, we ensure that the entire marina infrastructure is in functional condition. We consistently fulfil all contractual obligations agreed with you and are prepared for your arrival at any time.

The yacht service of our shipyard, which is also open, takes care of the existing work orders and accepts new orders. The partner companies based in our marina are also available for new work orders.

The Nautic Shop - Marina Commerce - is open again, but orders and purchases can also be made online in the webshop throughout the entire period.

Take a regular look at our internet and social media pages. Of course, as usual, we will regularly inform you, owners of the boats in our marina, about all the news via our usual communication channels.

We hope that all borders will open soon and we look forward to welcoming you back in the marina.
