Description of the project:

By implementing this project, the Balatonfüred Yacht Club carried out the modernization of its inner port in order to increase its capacity, which was an important part of the long-term plans of the Club, and also plays an important logistic role. The total cost of the developments was 82.9 million forints. The Club won 32.3 million forints at the tender.

This development included the infrastructural improvement of the inner port, as well as improving its accessibility and increasing its capacity.

Due to the developments, the quality of our services was improved, and we also increased the number of our services.

Waste water management services are also available on the shore, and there are electricity and water supply facilities as well.
