The largest investment in the history of ACI

Construction work on the most modern and, considered by many, the most beautiful marina in the Adriatic, whose highest standards in design and technological solutions match those of world’s elite destinations, is over. We are happy to report that on Monday 25 March, the first yacht entered the ACI Marina Rovinj and moored on its annual berth, marking the beginning of the new marina’s operation. The marina is open both to boats on annual berths and to those visiting.

The visual identity of the marina is not the only thing in Rovinj that has undergone a complete transformation. The objective – to introduce a fundamental change in the approach to nautical tourism, in amenities the marina provides, and services it offers to boaters – has been achieved. The new concept is infused with a touch of exclusivity in every detail, which, considering the remarkable tourist boom that Rovinj has seen in the last ten years or so, is something this city needs and deserves. The construction of the new ACI Marina Rovinj is a significant step forward in terms of standards in Croatian nautical tourism. The outstanding design, the latest technological solutions, and a high level of tailor-made nautical and catering services offered in the marina, which closely follow those in the most modern nautical one-stop shop destinations, are a perfect fit for the destination that is developing at a rapid pace.

Nautical services of the highest standard

Everyone involved in the construction of the new marina emphasises the pleasure of having participated in a project that has been in the making for years, particularly in a destination such as Rovinj.

ACI marinas were mostly built at the time when the standards in nautical tourism industry were different. Today’s boating market is much more demanding, boats are considerably larger and every season sees an increase in chartered vessels. This reconstruction is also our response to market demands, especially here in Rovinj, which is, with Dubrovnik, the crown jewel of Croatian tourism. Physical plans have made it possible for us to start the reconstruction of the Rovinj marina and to raise it to the highest marina rating level. Given the importance of Rovinj as a destination and the position of the ACI marina on the market, we estimated that we needed to move in the direction of reducing the number of berths where boats of shorter lengths are moored and to optimise the berthing capacity in accordance with today’s standards and market requirements.
