Our story

Centuries of knowledge and wisdom handed down from generation to generation.

The Filipi d.o.o. shipyard is a family-owned company with a long tradition of shipbuilding. The Filipi family are the pioneers of wooden shipbuilding in this part of the Adriatic and beyond.

In the mid-18th century, in 1745, Paško Filipi and his family moved from the island of Korčula to Betina and brought with them the knowledge and tools for making wooden boats. In 1932 his descendants Ante Filipi and his sons Šime, Krste and Ljubo founded the shipyard in Sukošan.

Today's family shipyard currently employs seven employees who perform various duties in shipbuilding, boating and the continuation of traditional wooden shipbuilding.

The family shipyard is located in Sukošan, 10 km from the city of Zadar and 5 km from the Zadar airport located in Zemunik.

The Filipi shipyard deals in shipbuilding and ship repairs.

The services offered include annual ship maintenance, overhaul, construction and repair of traditional wooden ships, other work in wood (ship interiors, decks), installation of various marine equipment, and repair and maintenance of marine and outboard engines. There are also excursions for up to 12 people with the traditional Ljube pasara boat, built in 1989 and renovated in 2021 in the same shipyard.

We have a 60t mobile crane and all the other devices and tools necessary for the maintenance and repair of your boat and, ultimately, for safe navigation. Professional shipyard staff will make sure you get the fastest and best service upon your arrival. Your safe harbor, shipyard port “Filipi” Sukošan, since 1932.
