In 2017 I was once charge 50% more for spending a night at a buoy. 2018 it happened already twice. The second time I refused an negotiated the price
for a mono-hull.
I have no problem to pay more when I am mooring
in a marina and need more space, but a catamaran
takes no more than 1 buoy. Like any mono-hull.
Here are bays with overcharging:
Island Mala Rava, bay at 44°02'20.2"N 015°03'17.4"E
island Kaprije, bay at 43°41'12.0"N 015°42'29.2"E
Island Tijat, bay at 43°43'01.5"N 15°46'11.8"E. Money
collector asked first for 30KN per meter for my catamaran
. With negotiations I got it down to 20KN per meter; price
for a mono-hull.
ACI Marina Skradin.
I was there in spring and now on July 1st, In spring the price was somehow OK but in Juli 1sth I was charged 1950.- KN for one night for my 43.5 ft catamaran.
I report this because I consider it as too expansive and recommend to check prices before making plans.
The 20% discount ACI members got in other ACI marinas
is not available anymore. It has been replaced by an additional free day if one stays in an ACI marina for several days. Number of days varies from ACI marina to ACI marina. Basically it means there is no useful discount anymore.
Losinj will always for me be a beautiful island with interesting bays and places to vist. However, I will never try and enter the city harbour of Mali Losinj again (located in the centre of the town). (N44.533013, E14.467355)
Reason - In August 2017 I wanted to enter this harbor for the 3rd time in 2017, always with about 4-8 people on board. This time they refused me and many other sailboats a berth. The reason we got from the staff and their "boss" (I talked with him several times in 2017, thus knew who he was) was that we didn't have a length of 25m or more. Me and my crew did not believe what we heard.
is a 43.5 ft catamaran and there were 3-4 places for a catamaran open and about 10 monohulls.
There was a pretty strong thunderstorm approaching and we were lucky to get the last berth in (private) "Marina Losinj" on the E side of the bay just beside the refueling station. We were pretty lucky because many boats had to get out of the bay before the storm set in.
This "Marina Losinj" is a bit away from the town but has a nice restaurant on the second floor, good food
at reasonable prices, and great views over the bay.
