"Buyers of yachts aktiviziruyutsya spring season. Those that buy from out of the blue, says Valery Strygin. - Those who seriously approach this issue, care about buying in the fall. To order the yacht and deliver it, the dealer takes three to four months. Overall, buy yachts rare: if 10 yachts per year leave - this is a great achievement. Buy private, less company. More likely to buy the boats".

Mainly a supplier of yachts are foreign companies. Managers of yacht clubs say that Russia has seven companies producing boats, and eight production sailing and motor yachts. The largest of them "Okhtinskaya Verf" (steel displacement motor yachts), "Morozov Yachts" (the construction of exclusive and conceptual yacht at the shipyard in the Netherlands and Russia), VIZA-yacht (production of sailing and motor yachts, Motorboats, boats).

A small boat six or seven meters, worth 20 thousand euros, ten or twelve meters – 150 thousand Euro, big boats 15-20 meters, from 300 to 2 million euros.

"Buying a yacht people from business, from industry aged 35 and older. Those who are able to work and to dream. Romance in one word. A yacht is freedom, it is moving in the sea part of the country. Yachting gives you a chance. The man is completely steers the situation takes on Board who wants to, chooses any direction. Mostly the customers - residents of Moscow, Petersburg, Odessa, Volga region. From the edge is Novorossiysk. Those who purchase the boats are ready," - said Valery Strygin.

The pros and cons

Sailors complaining that yachting infrastructure in the region is underdeveloped, there is no marine that protects the ship from bad weather. The best of Marina edges are in Sochi, Novorossiysk, Big Utrish.

The owners of yachts and boats are faced with the problem of storage, maintenance and preservation of their vessel. The most affluent inhabitants of the Kuban, as well as Russia in General, prefer to put their vessels into the Parking lot in Turkey, Spain, Greece, Croatia, Tunisia. There and service development and cheaper.

"From yachting on the Black sea prospects. There is an exit to the Mediterranean sea, Turkey, Greece. Safe navigation season on the Black sea lasts almost 9 months, it is possible to walk in winter. The cons are the strict border regime, the turbid sea, uninteresting coast scenery, no Islands. But the problem is still more administrative," - Valery Strygin.
