Nautički turizam u Republici Hrvatskoj u funkciji razvoja destinacije

The study deals with nautical tourism as a specific form of modern tourism trends and one of the most expanding forms of tourist recreation, as a function of destination development. The authors have elaborated the issue of the development of nautical tourism and destination as the mutually conditioned phenomena. The methods applied comprise: analyses, generalizations, argumentations and compilations. Nautical tourism attracts great attention, both around the world and in Croatia and is therefore considered one of the most significant economic activities of importance to the field of tourism. This type of tourism is featured by the fact that it belongs to the elite tourism and produces extraordinarily significant economic effects with high profitability, which are particularly expressed through numerous multiplicative effects. One of its features is its huge effect upon the development of the destination it is drifted to, and the feature is particularly evident in the demand for the development of activities concerned with the improvement of quality of services and products offered by particular destination to boats and boaters. Effects of nautical tourism upon destination can be also particularly felt where economical, social and, finally, environmental sustainability are concerned. The conclusions show that the development of nautical tourism encourages the development of destination, in the same manner as the development of destination affects the quality of services offered by nautical tourism.
