Make the marina’s plan. The main stages:

  1. Write the technical target.
  2. On the basis of technical target to define the prime objects of building.
  3. Develop the technical conditions by paying attention to the sources of engineering networks and communications.
  4. Make the assessment of capital investments in the project.

Choose the location of marina in accordance with the technical designed targets. It is necessary to pay attention to hydro-meteorologic conditions. The water area of the marina must be protected from the winds and provides a safe parking of small boats.

Make the map of depths to make sure that they meet the requirements for the reception of small vessels. The low depths сan be used for centerboarders, tourist catamarans. Perhaps, you must do the dredging for the moorage of keel yachts. The berth of parking small yachts. It is necessary to check the network engineering and technical support.

The list of marina’s objects

The typical marina has the following objects:

  • The water area with the approach channel and turning around.
  • Hydraulic facilities.
  • Mobile boat hoist (if it will be necessary).
  • Boatyard.
  • Administrative building (management, rest rooms, showers, WC.).
  • Car park.
  • The fencing territory around with a checkpoint.

Hydraulic facilities

The structure of hydraulic facilities of marina includes:

  • Floating dock (pontoon) for sailing and motor yachts is equipped with gangways and service columns with supplying of fresh water and electricity. The service columns mounted on the pontoon have the dual function: berths lighting at night, providing the shore power and supply water to moored vessels.
  • Mobile boat hoist (if it will be necessary).
  • Slip (if it will be necessary).

A rigid floating berth (pontoon), manufactured by Orion, serves for mooring boats in modern marinas. The pontoon is due to a rigid symmetrical design of rectangular shape have a high load capacity and provides long service life. Such structure is very reliable and presents the latest achievement in the field of floating berthing facilities for small boats.

Main pontoon’s parameters

Dimensions (L x W x H), not more (mm) 12000 х 2 500 х 670
Assembly length (along the axes of hinge joints), mm 12000
Board height on the unloaded condition, not less, mm 500
Draft on the unloaded condition, not more, mm 300
Useful load kg/m2 150
Board’s height on the loaded condition, mm 350
Draught on the loaded condition, mm 450
Useful area of section, m² 25

The buoyancy of pontoon’s section provides with floats – polyethylene conical box with the dimensions of 810 x 505 x 450 mm, which are equally placed and attached to the lower flatness of a frame in one or two level. The floats’ amount depends on the required deck height over the water level and the calculated load-carrying ability of section.

The fixation of the pontoons at the installation site are carried out by piles, chains with concrete anchors or Seaflex system.
All metal parts and components of the pontoon section are covered by hot-dip galvanizing, providing highly effective protection from climatic and mechanical effects within a marine environment. Hardware are made of stainless steel.

Boat hoist

For the hoist of vessels have been used with a boat lift on the pneumatic travel that makes not to put the crane tracks. The mobile boat hoist is an intermediate link between the water areas and horizontal launching slipway. In compliance with the purpose- the vertical boat lifts are similar to the inclined part of the slips, but have, in comparison between them, important advantages: minimal dimensions in plan, relative simplicity of laying and landing yachts on the keel blocks, the possibility of placing construction entirely within the water areas or in the coastal groove, small amounts of subaqueous works in the building. The deficiency of boat lifts is to increase the capital cost of their repair

Depending on the direction of the vessel’s movement when transfer it after the lift from water to the beach, the vertical boat lifts are classified into longitudinal and transverse.

In the longitudinal lift, an yacht moves horizontally along the diametral plane. This is so-called U-shaped mobile yacht lift. In the cross-ship lift, a boat moves horizontally across the diametral plane. They also are different lifting power. This type of device is only used with a trailer


A slip is applied for launching centerboarders, water crafts . The average slip’s length is 10 m. The slip is made with the slope of from 1: 4 till 1: 8. The length of the downhill tracks is not less than 2.5 of boat length. The rise and launching of the yachts by means of special trolleys on wheels or roller travel.
The marina site is equipped with engineering and technical networks:

  • Electrical supply network.

The main consumers of electricity in marina:
– Process workshop equipment;
– Electrical heating of buildings;
– Hot water supply;
– Power (including ventilation machines) equipment and interior lighting of buildings;
– Electricity supply for a checkpoint;
– Outdoor lighting;
– Yachts, boats.

  • Service – potable water supply

The potable water is used for bunkering vessels, needs of visitors marina, showers grid, irrigation of area, etc.
Estimated water use is determined in accordance with the rate of water consumption

  • Fire-prevention supply system;

An internal firefighting tentatively determined based on the number of spurts by 5 liters / sec required for extinguishing fires and to be specified in the following stages of design.

  • Sanitary sewer.

It depends – whether the connection to the sewage system or the untreated sewage will be supplied to the local sewage treatment plant with complete biological sewage treatment and to discharge of sewage into the water.

How earns a yacht club.

  1. Yachts mooring.
  2. Electricity supply for boats.
  3. Water supply for yachts.
  4. Give on lease of offices and accommodations.
  5. Give the berths for yachts within long-term lease.
