LLC JSB «Gor-Project» proposed a concept for developing a network of yacht marina in recreational areas on the Black Sea and Azov coasts of Krasnodar region. According to the document, it is planned to create a system of marinas, 17 of which – on the Black Sea coast and 4 – on the Azov Sea coast. One of them has already been set up and has been operating since the year 2014 – that is Sochi Grand Marina for 300 marinas and one is being built in Gelendzhik. It is planned to build or to reconstruct the remaining marinas and to expand the existing marine complexes.
As a result of implementing a concept, eight marinas, in total, each with a capacity from 300 to 800 yachts, will be operating in Sochi; two in each of the cities: Gelendzhik, Anapa and Novorossiysk. In addition, yacht marinas are envisaged in Tuapse region, Dzhugba, Yeisk and other coastal municipalities. The biggest of them will be a marina for 1000 vessels in Alexino (Novorossiysk).
The authors of the concept assess the economic effect of a toll-based yacht marina provided than 80% of marinas are occupied and the average cost of a 15-meter yacht marina equals 800 thousand rubles per year and the total amount of more than 8 billion rubles on an annual basis.
