The current issues of Croatian maritime shipping are connected to existing capacity, ship types and the status of the world maritime market, as well as national needs in terms of passenger shipping lines. A total capacity was reduced in the last thirty years. At the end of 2017 a total capacity amounted to 133 ships and 2.7 million DWT. This paper gives an overview of the status of ships in shipping companies, especially in relation to the technological structure of Croatian maritime shipping, which determines the flexibility and success of conducting business in the market. According to Statistical Yearbook and analyses of the state of passenger ships capacity in line and coastal shipping, it could be stated that there is stagnation in the capacity of passenger ships. In the observed period in the last ten years the number of ships, in cargo shipping, decreased. The paper analyzes the technological structure and types of ships in Croatian maritime shipping. The analysis of possibilities of the development of maritime shipping places a special emphasis on passenger transport. It is concluded that there are real possibilities of development according to capacity and types of ships. A special emphasis is put on the development of passenger ships with the aim of connecting Croatian islands with tourism development. The possibility of developing contemporary shipping capacities is highlighted, which would take care of the planned development of a modern Liquefied Gas Terminal, and once again the question of the possibility of long-term cooperation with Croatian shipping and Croatian shipping is emphasized.
