This year will be especially demanding for tourist shipping companies. According to the information coming from the shipowners, the works on the ships that are in the new construction have been stopped and everything has been in a complete standstill for the last month.  “At the moment, in the situation caused by the coronavirus, Dalmatian shipowners are struggling to keep their current reservations by postponing them for some time and by applying to government measures and agreements with banks, regarding extremely large loans that are a condition for building, renovating and preparing ships for the season. to get through this difficult and uncertain period,” navodi predsjednik HGK – Županijske komore Split Joze Tomaš, which is the seat of the National Association of Tourist Shipping Companies HGK. This growth was expected this year as well, when it is estimated that about 15 new tourist ships were to set sail in the Split-Dalmatia County and five more from other coastal counties.  Therefore, the shipowners hope that they will be met and that the banks will have understanding and approve a moratorium on loans for a minimum of one year. Even shipowners who are not in credit obligations this situation will force them to take out loans to cover current liabilities and retain the workforce.  In proportion to the number of new ships on the market, the number of passengers in tourist shipping grew from year to year, and according to the Port of Split, the third largest in the Mediterranean, last year the number of passengers increased by 20%. center_img Mali brodari traže moratorij na kredite na godinu dana – At the moment, the stalemate is still complete, and how much the current loss is confirmed by one of the leading travel agencies in Croatia, Katarina line, known for cruising the Adriatic in luxury ships, which in normal circumstances in this period would be about 15 days had part of the ships outside the home ports, with the first guests and groups. President of the Association of Tourist Shipping Companies of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce Ante Rakuljić emphasizes that these ships are a real Croatian product, from construction and equipment to servicing in Croatian shipyards, employment of almost exclusively Croatian seafarers and the offer of domestic food and Croatian products. A difficult business year is certain, and a complete absence of the season for shipowners is possible. If it is not possible to fully return to the old, shipowners believe that they will be able to adapt to new business conditions in terms of maintaining distance and hygiene, but this will require additional modifications and investments, which means new responsibilities and reduced capacity and number of passengers. last_img read more
