Croatian boat building company AD Brodovi (boats) from the Adriatic town of Solin in Croatia is celebrating its 10th anniversary. In the summer of 2002 the first Croatian brand of boats, under the Salona name were manufactured at AD Brodovi, today there are four models in the fleet; Salona 35, 38, 41 and 44, which have in the last two years experienced redesign to come into line with modern global trends.
The company has achieved great success over the past decade and a new part of their programme sees great emphasis on adapting existing models and special finance conditions for local boat owners under the motto: Croatian boats for Croatian Charters.
The launch of the companies flagship boat, the 18-metre Salona 60, with its distinctive exterior elegance and attractive interior fully incorporating all the brand values - fast, reliable yachts capable of crossing oceans and sailing comfortably, is also expected at the end of the year.
Production of sailing boats in Croatia for the world market today is a reality, and Croatian products are sold on four continents, besides the whole of Europe, Salona is present in Korea, Japan, China, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Australia, and North and South America. The quality of the boats, which are as equally good for cruising as they are for fast sailing regattas, is the main reason for the success of global brands, which has recorded an increase of 110 per cent in production since 2009. The company has also decided to reward the confidence in the global markets with special versions of all its models for their 10th anniversary.
Salona has even attracted some famous names to endorse its products. New Zealand's America's Cup Skipper Dean Barker promoted Salona 38 and was impressed with the Croatian boats. America's Cup designer Jason Ker is also a subcontractor in the project team.
Salona will shortly attend a series of international fairs, starting in Sydney, Australia and ending in Paris, France at the end of this year.
