The National Marine Manufacturers Association is hosting a fact-finding mission to Croatia to explore export opportunities for U.S. boatbuilders.

The NMMA is partnering with the Croatian Boating Industry Association and the U.S. Commercial Service Zagreb to host a trip Oct. 14-20.

Registration is open now, and the NMMA says space is limited.

During the trip, builders will travel as part of a small group to explore potential business opportunities and growth areas for the boating industry in key areas of the country.

Croatia’s economic growth since its independence and accession to the European Union in 2013 has created steady growth for the country and an increased demand for recreational boats and marine equipment.
