“You can’t buy happiness. But you can buy a boat and that’s pretty much the same thing.”

Nava Boats Croatia

Nautika Centar Nava, or as some know it: Nava Boats started as a charter business back in 1990. We believed then, and we still do, that everybody should enjoy boating. In the newly established free market, we were one of the first companies in Croatia that offered boats for charter.

Later, we expanded our business with boat sales and a Volvo Penta Center. Today we are the authorized dealers of some of the world’s most renown boat manufacturers: Beneteau, Lagoon, X-Yachts, Sea Ray, Boston Whaler, Riviera Luxury Yachts, Tiwal sailing dinghies, and Saxdor Yachts.

Nava business

In brief, the three core business activities of Nava Boats are Boat Charter, Boat Sales, and Volvo Penta center. These three co-exist and complement each other. It’s the full service we provide that makes us a trustworthy partner.

Indeed, we are your boating embassy in Croatia because we are experts on;

  • Brokerage – buying a pre-owned boat or selling one can be hassle-free
  • Assistance and Consulting regarding all aspects of boat purchase or sale. Everything 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, etv.
  • After-sales – equipping your boat with everything you might wish. For example, if you need cushions, awnings, winches, gennakers. Even minor layout modifications are our specialty. Moreover, our electrician, carpenter, plastics molder, 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. The center consists of a workshop and spare part shop with optimal stock inventory, plus a training and education space.
  • Charter management – turning your purchase into an investment while enjoying all the perks of owning a boat is one of our many specialties.
  • 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 almost a dozen Adriatic Lagoon Regattas for over one hundred people. Furthermore, corporate regattas and team-building events are also our area of expertise.

We have been working on all these activities for the past 32 years and are looking forward to new challenges. Lastly, let’s not forget Accounting, Marketing, and Management, who all contribute to our company’s goals.
