Rovinj Celebrates ACI’s 40th Anniversary

One thing in undianable: This is the year in which Rovinj celebrates ACI’s 40th anniversary. Nautical tourism in Croatia is bigger than ever! 

They’ve got a bunch of awards showing how much they care about making things top-notch for you, keeping you happy, and taking care of the environment. Look out for those blue flags flying at most ACI marinas. The ones in Rovinj and Cres are extra special with a super cool five-anchor rating.

But it’s not just about sailing; ACI is all about being eco-friendly. They’re like superheroes for the seas, making sure they:

  • manage waste water right,
  • cut down on food and plastic waste,
  • save water,
  • and use renewable energy. 

Minister Nikolina Brnjac, the tourism and sports expert, gave them a big shout-out for being leaders in sustainable tourism

Today, ACI is the king of marinas in the Mediterranean. Cheers to ACI—making big waves and breaking boundaries for Croatian excellence! 🚢🌊  

Celebrating 40 Years of ACI: Sailing Croatia to the Top of Global Nautical Tourism

ACI is like a sea superhero with 22 marinas (and one more coming soon), linking the best spots in the Adriatic. ACI is making sure Croatia is the boss of nautical tourism worldwide. How? By paying attention to what sailors want, offering cool stuff, and always investing. 

Josip Bilaver, the State Secretary for the Sea and EU Funds, represented Minister Oleg Butković at the celebration. He said ACI has been a big part of making Croatia the top nautical destination globally in the last 40 years. 


“We’re super proud, especially because ACI keeps investing. They just finished up in Rovinj and are now working on the Porto Baroš project in Rijeka. And guess what? They’re into renewable energy, tech upgrades, and embracing new times. That’s awesome news for the future of ACI,” Bilaver shared. Kristjan Staničić, the boss at the Croatian Tourist Board, also joined the party. He gave ACI props for being the biggest marina chain in the Mediterranean. He thinks it’s extra special because it’s a Croatian creation, made possible by smart and skilled people.
