Sail-World.com : Crimea to attract cruising sailors to the Black Sea
Crimea to attract cruising sailors to the Black Sea

'Black Sea sailing - more and more interesting now that infrastructure is developing'    .

Several years ago Bulgaria decided to become yacht friendly, encouraging yachts to travel up the Bosphorus through Istanbul to the Black Sea. Now, if a planned marina development becomes a reality, Crimea will soon be adding to the reasons why cruising sailors should include the Black Sea in their touring itinerary.

Investment proposals to create a $1 billion network of yacht marinas in Crimea were presented to participants of the III International Black Sea Economic Forum in Yalta this week.

Yacht marinas with a total of 1,500 moorings are already in the pipeline to be built, the first being in Eupatoria seaport. This first project provides for establishing modern infrastructure for yachts, along with 4-star hotels and entertainment complexes.

In Alushta the project envisages construction of yacht port for 300 moorings and a 4-star hotel complex with 400 rooms.

In Gurzuf (Big Yalta) they plan to build marina for 191 moorings. Plans also include setting an embankment with a Yacht Club, constructing a diving centre, several restaurants, a 4-star hotel with 25 rooms. Conceptual design and business plan have already been developed.

Black Sea, plenty of sea room. Coming soon, plenty of marinas -  .. .  

Other yacht marinas are planned for Sudak, Ordzhonikidze ( near Feodosiya), Olenevka (Chernomorsky Raion) and in Kerch.

Finally, two marinas are planned to be built on Lake Donuzlav, one - on Cape Morskoy, the other - on Cape Sultan Ali.

In all, fifteen new yacht marinas are expected to be completed by 2020.

In total, the marinas will offer over 4,000 berths for small and mid-size vessels, each bringing over €5,000 yearly revenue. Apart from these, 1,600 land storage spaces will be built, with an expected yearly revenue of €2,500 each. The project is estimated to bring up to 1,000 jobs to the market. Each completed berth is expected to cost €85,000.

The republic's minister of Resorts and Tourism, Nikolay Marinov, has noted that the current Crimea Border Control legislation must be adapted for small vessels to make checking-in simple. This also will have the effect of stimulating growth in the number of cruising sailors who decide to visit Crimea.
