The biggest value of Iskra Shipyard Šibenik are its people; the 180 highly skilled workers, specialists for everything a hull, engines, electric systems, electronic systems and equipment might need, as well as for interior decoration and furnishing. Alongside them, mechanical and naval engineers put their skills to use for the benefit of the client, as at Iskra, education and motivation are equally important.

‘Every ship, especially larger yachts, are like living organisms – in constant need of repair. In case of an accident and damage to drive shafts or underwater part of the hull, we are at your service to lift the vessel from the water and perform all the repairs. As for maintenance, in case of larger yachts there is the question of skill, experience and supply partners, but also of capacity and infrastructure. Primarily, that refers to all the equipment necessary for pulling the vessel from the water, like docks, ship-ways, travel lifts, hydraulic transporters, as well as hangers large enough for all repairs, large enough to fully protect the vessel and conscious of ecological standards’, says CEO of the yard, Roko Vuletić. ‘We have it all.’
