Nava Bases

With more than 30 years of experience in the boating business we at Nautika Centar Nava know, want and need to help you love boating as much as we do.

Of course, there’s no better way to enjoy it than aboard the finest yachts. We started our charter business back in 1990 and expanded it with boat sales and a Volvo Penta Centre. Today we are the authorized dealers of some of the world’s renown boat manufacturers: Beneteau, Lagoon, X-Yachts, Sea Ray, Boston Whaler, Monte Carlo, Monte Carlo Yachts and Saxdor Yachts.

Central & South Dalmatia Bases



Securely hidden in a deep bay, Rogoznica is a quiet fishing town with over 2600 sunny hours per year. Located on the peninsula, the town centre with the old stone houses offers an authentic Mediterranean atmosphere.

Many sailors love the town for the untouched nature and a secure harbour. The unique Dragon’s eye lake, deep pine forest ideal for hiking, long coastal promenade, countless lovely beaches, islets, and bays attract visitors from all over the world.

Marina Frapa


Marina is situated in the hidden Soline bay in the middle of the Adriatic, between historic towns Split and Sibenik. It’s located just next to the extraordinary Dragon’s eye Lake. Moreover, it is the perfect starting point for exploring North Dalmatia and the Kornati Archipelago.

This marina is one of the best equipped in the Mediterranean and the “Golden Sail” award along with many others attest to that.

Marina has 10 piers with 462 equipped berths. The modern resort consists of two restaurants, a sushi bar, a pastry shop, a nightclub, and many bars, including the exotic underwater Dragon bar.

In addition, marina Frapa Rogoznica is a partner of the international Blue Flag program and the Green Sail ecological movement.



The largest city in Dalmatia, Split is the perfect city to teach you the Dalmatian way of living. “Take it easy” or “pomalo” by enjoying a coffee at Riva. Or, taking a walking tour of the Diocletian’s Palace and selecting one of the fancy restaurants or charming taverns. Climbing up the Cathedral’s bell tower or the Marjan hill to enjoy the view is only for the most adventurous.


Do not miss Bacvice and Kasjuni beaches while you wait for the boat to be ready. Also, Split is well-known for its electronic music festivals and great nightlife.


Split is both modern and traditional at the same time. Combining these two elements is what makes it special. The city’s heart, the Diocletian’s Palace dates 1700 years back and some parts of it, like the sphinx, are 3500 years old.


Nava Marina


Nava marina is a small, comfortable private marina situated as the extension of the west coast promenade, just a 10 minutes’ walk from the city centre.

This is where we keep our fleet of 35+ boats and maintain them. There are toilets and showers for guests, 1 shop and 3 supermarkets, 3 ATMs, a restaurant, a post office, and a pharmacy in the immediate vicinity of the Nava marina.

Our staff is here to deliver a supreme vacation experience to our guests and cater to all their needs and wishes.



Dubrovnik’s old town is unique. The city’s history started in the 600s and over the centuries the town evolved into an independent republic. To be able to keep their sovereignty they built mighty defensive walls that thousands of visitors now admire every year.

If you are a Game of Thrones fan, you have probably seen Dubrovnik before, but just do not know it. The city “played” King’s Landing in the series. More recently, scenes from “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”, the latest part of the popular saga, was also set here.


ACI Marina Slano


Slano is a perfect start of your cruise in South Dalmatia. Our second base is situated within the ACI marina, only 12 Nm from Dubrovnik, 2 from Sipan, 9 from Mljet, 35 from Korcula and 44 from Lastovo.

Check with our booking office to see which boats are available for one-way charter and combine South and Central Dalmatia to get the best of both regions.

The marina itself has a laundry, ATM, toilets and showers, restaurant, open-air swimming pool with bar and parking. Our staff is waiting for you in our office and will go above and beyond to help you and make you and your family and friends welcome.

Istria Bases


The newest base will be situated in Pula bay, in the new Marina Polesana which is part of the Nautical Tourism Complex on St. Katarina island.

Pula is the biggest town on the Istrian Peninsula with more than 50,000 inhabitants. The town has everything you need for a perfect sailing holiday. The calm blue sea, breathtaking nature, and famous historical sights make Pula a great destination for anyone.

If you are visiting the town on foot, we recommend exploring the historical monuments in the city center. Certainly, one of the most famous is the Roman Arena from the 1st century AD. Moreover, it is one of the best-preserved arenas in the world.


Marina Polesana

From the season 2022, you can find us in Marina Polesana located on St. Katarina island near Pula. The island is connected to the city with a bridge and is accessible all year round. Marina Polesana is a newly built marina with modern facilities; office building, café bar, restaurant, storage and sanitary facilities plus a parking lot. While waiting for your boat to get ready, you can explore Pula or get a coffee in a café or some lunch at the restaurant.

Thanks to its good location in the Northern Adriatic, there is a lot to explore. An absolute must-see is the National Park Brijuni Archipelago. This group of islands is one of the most attractive destinations, offering several anchoring and docking possibilities, interesting ancient and even recent history and rich fauna and flora. Or, you could set off for Umag, Porec, Rovinj, Opatija, or even further towards the Kvarner archipelago (Krk, Cres or Losinj). Start your cruise with Nautika Centar Nava from Marina Polesana and discover the Northern Adriatic and make it your new favorite sailing destination.
