Recently published statistics for 2007 confirm that nautical tourism is on the up in Croatia.
The total number of moorings available was 15,834 and although it's no surpise that Austria and Germany were the biggest international permanent "occupiers" of Croatian berths, USA flagged vessels were an astounding third with Slovenia, Italy and the UK (323) following.
There were 220,875 vessels in transit during the year with Italy, as usual, providing the highest number of foreign visitors, followed by Germany, Austria and Slovenia.
Today's photo is of the classic, Croatian built yacht Galatea. More details from http://www.ocean-matters.com/.
