Approximate estimates indicate that the required investments will amount to LVL 1.3 million.

According to the port's concept, a floating pontoon construction will be built to replace the current wooden pier. The CD pier, which has fallen into disrepair, will be fully renovated. When building the complex, the experience of Polish and German ports will be taken into account.

The Freeport of Riga will ensure the procurement and construction of the complex, the Riga City Council - the project's infrastructure and communications.

When the complex is ready, Riga will be able to welcome not only a few individual yachts but also international yachting regattas. The Riga City Council wants to popularize yachting tourism, providing yachting enthusiasts with an opportunity to expand their geographical borders.
