“By participating on MITT 2014, we are hoping to present Croatia as the new and exciting nautical destination with the high service level. In 2013, we marked a 43% increase in Russian market bookings. It was the evidence of huge market potential. We realized that Russia and its region’s market are still to be discovered. Although, the Adriatic Challenge welcomed its first Russian guests in 2007, on MITT show, we wanted to present the list of our quality services to a wider audience. Exhibiting at MITT is a unique chance to meet new and existing partners, to share promotional material and to get an insight into the industry trends. The MITT presentation will give us the perfect opportunity to share our news and to present our products and services:

One-Design sailing (monotype) Our yachts are identical down to the last detail, whilst providing an excellent experience for competitors while racing on identical boats.

Regatta and Event Organisation Customised events for each client. Adriatic Challenge regattas organized on one-design fleets are something every sailing enthusiast should experience. Adriatic Challenge offers complete and professional event management services. From race management to catering, accommodation, and transfer, Adriatic Challenge has built a successful portfolio of regular sporting, recreational, and corporate events.

Sailing Yacht Charter There is no better way to experience the natural wonders of the Adriatic Sea than from the deck of one of our yachts. Explore sandy beaches, secluded swimming areas, and breath-taking seaside views.

Charter Management Our charter program reduces the boat owner’s costs. Adriatic Challenge guarantees: excellent results in charter booking, high-quality maintenance, accurate and efficient administrative support, charter vessel import and vessel equipment services, assistance in obtaining all necessary permits and licences, vessel availability for the owner’s private use, free advertising in our marketing campaigns, free cleaning and maintenance services during charters, professionalism in all aspects of our business.

Boat Service Sometimes, the boat owners have no time for the boats upkeep? Or live too far from the boat’s berth in Croatia to ensure it’s maintained on schedule? Or, simply, owners want professionals to do the work! Our keys to success are high quality maintenance standards and good customer service.

Boat Sales Our experts will help in finding the best deal and select all necessary options and equipment, along with finding the best yacht financing model. In the scope of premium yacht charter services, customer support is of crucial importance to us, and we fully understand that quality and complete after-sales service provision are the keys to success.

Russia’s rapid economic growth in recent years has catapulted the country’s tourism spending the 5th in the world for international tourism expenditure. As Russia’s outbound tourism continues to thrive (47 million Russians traveled abroad in 2012), as does the appetite for new and more exotic destinations. It is also the market with double digit growth, while some traditional outbound markets like the UK and Germany only grew by a few percent this year, Adriatic Challenge embraced the opportunity the hunt out the potential markets for Croatian nautical tourism.” Nataša Jakovljev, the sales and marketing manager of Adriatic Challenge explained.




Croatia has to put a lot of effort in its market’s presentation, as at this year’s show, following new destinations are premiering: Iceland, Rhodos, Bangladesh, Balearic Islands, Karnataka, Kerala, the Canary Islands, Cape Verde and Peru. The event will see the first time participation from the independent travel companies: Meet in Med, Sun Tour Travel, Lusitana Sol, Vesti Mallorca, Voyages SNCF, Hotels and Lodges Tanzania, Skytour, Mistique Mantra Holidays India, Vecteur Europe Voyage, Tours France, Tripadvisor, Discover Greece, Mere Neve, Tuscany Dream, Svemar Tours, Millennium Voyage, Gazzella and many more.
