The Role and Applicability of Multi-criteria Procedures in the Function of Defining the Model for Connecting the Mainland and Islands and Islands in Between

Passenger traffic in the Adriatic is mostly seasonal and takes place during the summer tourist season when the islands are appropriately connected to the mainland by a large number of lines of any ferry or fast ship. Since the islands are generally associated only with the narrow circle of close islands that are in the fairway, interinsular connection is insufficient. The rapid growth of maritime transport does not follow the ports and port infrastructure, and in this part certain difficulties appear. As this is a complex problem of choosing the type and size of vessels with more dominant criteria, a systematic approach to resolving this problem requires the application of methods of multi-criteria analysis. A method of analysis defines the objectives of this work, and based on the stated objectives, defined is the criteria relevant to the selection of the size and type of vessels in the maritime connection of the mainland and islands and between the islands in the Republic of Croatia (Croatia). © Faculty of Maritime Studies Rijeka, 2015.
