Meet THE Nava Team
Andrijana has been enriching the Nava office with her optimism and cheerful character for the past 15 years. She still sparks every Monday morning.
Andrijana reigns over the charter department with professionalism and dedication, mastering the management of people and boats perfectly. Some say she has never been late in her 15 years here, and we have no doubt about it. With immaculate time management and her deadlines always in sight, Andrijana is the mastermind behind our charter operations.
And Mrs. Ozretic is truly a woman of many talents and duties. At Nava, she takes care of booking, charter management and charter accounting, communication with agents. She follows up on all charter payments, invoices and charter contracts for individuals and agencies while making sure that all boat owners receive their monthly and annual financial statements, and their income reports.
Sounds like a lot? If you ask her, Andrijana could tell you countless tasks we didn’t list here. Her go-getter mentality and unparalleled industry expertise ensure success for whatever she sets her mind to.
Do you want to experience this wonder woman first hand? Send her an email! Last year, Andrijana replied to over 10,000 emails. But what’s even more, she has welcomed 2,000 guests in person.
You are wondering if she still has some time for herself outside of running the show at Nava? Of course, Andrijana loves getting active in nature with her family and friends. And being the power woman she is, she also raises two amazing kids.
With 18 years and counting as Nava’s base manager, Robert has become an institution in our marina. He is the master of all charter boats and knows each one of them inside out.
From the check-in to the check-out, “Riža” is your #1 contact during your sailing adventure.
So you better add him to your contacts now, because no matter what happens on your charter, “Call Robert” will always provide a solution.
He will be there for you 24/7, yes, also at 3 am on a Tuesday.
His job description might say “support and logistics” but we all know there’s nothing Robert doesn’t do. After all, his job is to make sure you have the best charter of your life.
Or at least the best one this year, we can talk about the next year later.
While his motto might be “Pomalo”, or “take it easy”, he does not take his job lightly.
He’ll remain calm no matter how the wind blows and tackles every issue like an expert.
And if you already went from chartering to owning a boat, she is in the best hands with Robert. His expertise and attention to detail make him the best base manager any sailor could ask for.
If he’s not working his magic, solving problems and making the impossible happen, you’ll most likely find Robert with his family or doing his favorite thing: sailing.
For 5 years now, Josip has been lighting up the Nava Team and office with his smile and his unceasing willingness to help wherever he is needed.
Josip is not just a multilingual talent, speaking English and Spanish, but he is also constantly expanding his practical skills and knowledge. Josip’s work attitude and skills make him an indispensable asset to our Nava team.
What is more, his working style is meticulous. Everyone who has met Josip knows, he won’t stop until everyone is happy on board.
At Nava, Josip is one of our key people who make sailing dreams come true. This is why he handles bookings and charter communication with guests and agents. But he also welcomes guests in our marina and manages the administrative part of charter activities. And like we said, there’s almost nothing, Josip wouldn’t lend a hand with.
When we hired Lovorka in 2016, we knew we had landed ourselves a multi-talent. She graduated from the Faculty of Philosophy in Split with not one, but three majors: Italian language, literature, and art history.
But Ms. Kalebić is not just fluent in Italian, she also communicates in English and Russian regularly.
While her art history knowledge comes in handy when working as a local tourist guide, this also means she also knows plenty about the area and always has a fun fact ready for our guests.
And while her personality and beaming smile make her a great colleague to be around, she’s also in charge of key business activities. Lovorka handles bookings and communicates with guests and agents alike. Last but not least, you’ll find her down in the marina, welcoming you on board your charter yacht.
Riža’s right hand
If you have chartered with us before, you must know Riža. If not, you will meet him soon. He is the man behind “Call Robert”, our 24-hour hotline during your charter. But without Mate, none of that would be possible. They’re such a perfect team that some say Mate is Riža’s right hand.
At our base, Mate takes care of our charter fleet, does check-ins and check-outs with our guests while also managing tasks among the Nava team.
But most importantly, Mate is our Sails-Master. He knows everything there is to know about sails and can fix pretty much anything. . With 13 years of experience at Nava, rest assured that Mate is the best guy for the job.
And if you think he is only setting sails in his work life, you are mistaken! Mate is also a licensed sailor. If he’s not with his family, you’ll find him spending time at sea.
Anđela was awarded as the “best student” at the Faculty of Maritime Studies in Split and of course, we wanted such a talent in our Nava Team. She is our most recent addition to the charter team.
Her most impressive skill is her extraordinary attention to detail. Anđela keeps track of our boats, especially tasks that need to be completed on board. And she works with such accuracy, no detail ever goes unnoticed!
Besides, Anđela is not just great with boats, she also excels in problem-solving and mediating, whether it’s in Croatian, English or German!
