We are informing you with great pride and pleasure that, after several international awards we received in this, for us ceremonial year – 5 anchors of the British association TYHA, maxim 5 rudders awarded by the German ADAC – the Croatian professional public honoured us with a significant award as well. Within the competition “Tourist flower” Marina Punat won the award for the Marina of the year – the best marina of the Croatian Adriatic Sea in 2014.
This competition is traditionally organized by professional associations – Association of Entrepreneurs in Croatian Hotel Industry, Croatian Camping Union, Institute of Social Sciences Ivo Pilar, Croatian Marina Association with the Croatian Chamber of Economy, Ministry of Environmental and Nature Protectionand Croatian National Tourist Board, which in accordance with a specially developed rating system are rating the overall tourist offers in Croatia.
This award has an additional significance. Namely, with this year’s award, Marina Punat became the most awarded marina in Croatia, winning this award for quality in nautical tourism for the seventh time. It is interesting that Marina Punat was excluded from competition after winning the award for year-long quality in 2011 in order to give a chance to others as well. This year, when we were again listed in regular competition, it became clear that Punat is the natural choice for all those looking for top quality offer in nautical tourism.
“We are especially pleased with this acknowledgement because it came in the year when the first marina on this side of the Adriatic Sea celebrated valuable 50 years of existence and successful work”, emphasized Krešimir Žic, President of Marina Punat Group Supervisory Board on the award presentation ceremony in Opatija and he added that the key in every successful business are always people, who, in addition to good organization, are offering quality solutions, innovations and progress in a specific activity such as nautics. “Creativity is the key to success so services and working methods are constantly upgraded with the help of state of the art technologies and own employees whom we are encouraging to be creative and make improvement proposals.”
And indeed, in a situation when new marinas are being opened and adapted and when everybody is investing in service improvement, this acknowledgement proves that, with hard work of all our employees, we are succeeding to maintain the leading position and provide you the very best currently offered in nautical tourism. And for all of you who chose Marina Punat for your visit or home port, this should be more proof that you made the right choice!
Gold Anchors For Marina Punat
We are proudly announcing that Marina Punat won the Gold Anchor award and became member of the nautical family of marinas from all around the world which have this prestigious award.

Five gold anchors are the maximum result confirming that our marina is at the very top by all key indicators which this independent institution is measuring and that by our service we can compare favourably with the best nautical destinations worldwide.
