Taxi Cat Korčula
One of Croatia’s cultural and natural gems is the Island of Korčula, with its rich heritage, divine beaches, and nearby islets. However, the connections between its islets were previously very limited and operated without a planned schedule. The destination needed a frequent and reliable water connection, which traditional boats or modern speed boats couldn’t provide.
That’s where Norbert Žaknić, CEO of Memula, Korčula saw an untapped opportunity for his existing tourism business. His company Memula was already the proud owner of two Agena Marin semi-submarines, which had been operating successfully for five years in Korčula and nearby Orebić. In the next phase of the company’s growth, Norbert wanted to introduce a water taxi with a fixed schedule.

“We listened to our customers and realized they need “a bus line” between the islets and the main island. In a way, for us, this was a “back to basics” project that would offer a simple, yet fast, reliable, and safe means of water transportation. When Mladen Peharda and Agena Marin announced this new attractive vessel for short trips, we didn’t hesitate in ordering one for our business,” said Norbert.
