Marina Development

Marina development is an attractive investment area in Mykolaiv. As a location of strategic industries, city of Mykolaiv was closed for visitors during the Soviet period. Thus, the city is lacking large-scale recreational facilities and industries, despite its natural and tourism assets, e.g. one of the oldest and largest zoos in Europe. Mykolaiv has designated several river-front areas for marina development, one of the few cities in Ukraine to do so in zoning documentation. The city offers three models for marina development outlined below.


There are several land plots available for greenfield marina development in northern and southern areas of Mykolaiv near major residential areas. All plots are designated for marinas in the current zoning, have necessary engineering infrastructure. Mykolaiv City Council will auction the plots to investors and will reconstruct road infrastructure leading to marinas.

Qualified investors could enter into joint venture agreements to upgrade and modernize assets of oldest marina in Mykolaiv – City Yacht Club (HORECA, maintenance facilities etc.) located in the city centre. The Yacht Club is owned by Mykolaiv Oblast (regional authority).

Public ownership4.2 Ha • For rent • 300m waterfront

Public-Private Partnership

There are two land plots owned by the Mykolaiv City Council and located near the city centre. Both are ideally suited for marina development, – major residential areas nearby, great recreational value, road and engineering infrastructure access. Already earmarked for marinas in the zoning, the plots will have spatial plans elaborated in 2017. The City Council will invest in feasibility study and project documentation and enter into the public-private partnership with an investor on BOT (build-operate-transfer) terms for up to 50 years.
