The Adriatic Croatia International Club - or ACI for short - is a chain of 22 marinas on the Croatian coast with headquarters in Opatija. The ACI was founded in 1983 with the purpose of promoting nautical tourism. In its founding years, the marina chain consisted of 16 marinas, was 100% state-owned and called ACY (Adriatic Club Yugoslavia). After the collapse of Yugoslavia and the independence of Croatia, the company was partially privatized in 1994 and since then bears the name ACI Club.
The 16 founding marinas were built between 1982 and 1985 and opened one year later. Then the marinas in Korcula and Opatija followed. In 1991, the previously independent marina in Dubrovnik was integrated into the ACI network. Three years later Cres and Simuni followed. The ACI Marina Slano north of Dubrovnik was opened as the newest Marina 2016.
In addition to new marinas, there have been a number of modernizations in recent years. For example, ACI Marina Rovinj was closed at the end of 2016 and rebuilt from scratch. The opening is planned for the year 2018. The ACI marina in Split also underwent extensive refurbishment and modernization in 2016. According to the ACI management, several other marinas are also about to modernize.
With about 450 berths, the ACI marinas in Cres and Dubrovnik are the largest marinas while the ACI marina Vrboska on the island of Hvar with almost 90 berths is the smallest one. Of the 22 marinas, 18 are open year-round. The ACI Marinas Palmizana, Piskera, Rab and Zut are only open from April to October. All marinas have a good range of services. Mooring lines, electricity, water and sanitary facilities are a matter of course. Some of the mainland marinas are the starting point for various charter fleets. Then at the weekend, the sanitary facilities are at the capacity limit with the associated disadvantages.
Prices ACI Marinas
The prices for the ACI Marinas are quite different. While the popular ACI marinas in Dubrovnik, Palmizana, Korcula, Skradin or Split are found in the top price segment, other marinas such as Zut, Piskera but also Cres and Umag belong to the rather cheaper Marinas in Croatia. The ACI Marina Piskera is located in the Kornati National Park, which is subject to charges. However, so far in the price for the berth also include the ticket for the national park. The newly designed ACI Marina in Rovinj will be the most expensive marina in ACI after its reopening.
