Investors who are looking for a new start and also want to make a fresh start professionally can take advantage of a wide range of opportunities today. If there is a special connection to nature at the same time, marina real estate is a perfect choice. More and more investors who want to recover from everyday stress escape to the sea on weekends, bridge days, and also on holiday. The atmosphere of a marina is experiencing a renaissance again today, and increasingly so among the younger generation. Start-ups looking for a reliable business idea can plan a new start of a special kind with the purchase of marina real estate. But anyone who wants to rent or buy a marina must define their personal goals early on in order to minimize risks for this unusual business idea.

What factors are decisive for the success of marina real estate?
Start-ups who want to establish themselves with marina real estate are also dependent on the know-how of experts. Location analyses are absolutely necessary, with the help of which the economic potential of marina real estate can be sounded out. A scenic location alone is not enough to establish a future-oriented existence. Information on possible uses provides information on which expansion options are possible in compliance with all legal framework conditions in order to increase the attractiveness of a marina property. Anyone who wants to buy or rent a marina or marina must also be informed about competitors before an individual business concept is drawn up. Specialized brokers (Marine Project) offer complete packages that include sound advice also for possible refurbishments and expansion projects. In addition, a multitude of legal requirements have to be fulfilled with regard to sanitary equipment and technologies, and all this in compliance with environmentally friendly conditions. Regardless of whether a marina property is to be purchased or rented – target-oriented marketing and a concept that is oriented towards reality are prerequisites for the successful operation of a marina property.

What are the legal requirements?
The minimum equipment of a marina is subject to very specific legal regulations. In general, the following applies: regulations concerning nature conservation, investment staff and co. are the responsibility of the respective country. In addition, port regulations also define the term marina or marina. This passage is particularly important for those consumers who wish to buy, rent or lease a port. Based on the characteristics named in the port ordinance, it is possible to derive essential requirements for a new marina to be opened. Other important contents of a port ordinance concern, for example, Fire protection, waste disposal, operating regulations, and administrative offenses to be avoided. For example, marinas and harbours may generally only be operated if they have a required drinking water supply and sewage system. In addition, both the map of the harbor and the marina regulations and the operator’s data must be displayed on the premises in a manner that is easily legible, even for visually impaired people. Interested parties can often find more detailed information on the currently valid port regulations in the respective country in the download area of the respective website. Additional assistance is also provided by municipal administrations. If you want to buy, rent, or lease a marina, you can also call on the services of a specialist lawyer. They can provide information on any legal stumbling blocks and, if necessary, offer long-term advice.

Where can you find a suitable marina?
If you want to buy, rent, or lease a marina, you can increasingly find the right property on the internet. Platforms such as Marine Project can fulfill the desire for a varied life by the sea with just a few clicks of the mouse. Here, interested parties are offered a wide range of marinas that are leased, rented, or sold worldwide. Once the appropriate offers have been called up, they can be individually narrowed down using the search mask. The geographical location and equipment of the offered objects can be adapted to one’s own needs, as can the price and size of the harbor.

How much does a marina cost?
There is no one-size-fits-all price for marinas. Rather, the respective prices depend on the individual characteristics of the property in question. For example, the size of the plot of land and the adjoining terrain can increase or decrease the price. In addition, the age of the property is also one of the price-forming factors: Since marinas emerged as a special form of tourism as early as the beginning of the 20th century and experienced a boom from the 1950s and 1960s, the majority of marinas offered for sale and lease date from the 1980s and 1990s. As a result, they are not infrequently in need of refurbishment. These properties are particularly worthwhile for prospective buyers who are skilled craftsmen. In this way, an outdated marina can be transformed into a dream property within a very short time through personal initiative and commitment. Marinas also vary greatly in price from region to region. Traditional marinas, for example, such as those in Europe, are more competitive and drive up prices accordingly. On the other hand, previously unknown regions offer lower prices but have considerably less prestige. If you want to buy, rent, or lease a marina, you should also be aware of the regional characteristics.

Lease, rent, or buy a marina?
Marinas can be leased, rented, or bought. The various types of contracts are based on the following essential differences: Rent marina: A rental contract exclusively regulates the secondary granting of the use of the real estate and premises. Lease marina: In a lease agreement, the lessee is not only granted the use of the leased property. In addition and over and above the mere rent, both property and rights can be granted, for example, those for commercial use. This allows the tenant to profitably market the yield of the area.
Buying a marina: When a marina is purchased, there is eventually a change of ownership of the land. The buyer can then dispose of the marina himself and holds all rights and obligations. These three approaches each come with different advantages and disadvantages: Type of contract Advantages Disadvantages
Rent or lease: Tenant requires comparatively few financial resources. Maintenance and repairs are the landlord’s responsibility. Disposing of the property comparatively uncomplicated, with limited design options. Purchase, free design options for the marina, more cost-intensive than renting or leasing.
If you want to rent, lease, or buy a marina, you should take your time. Many marinas in the USA are offered for lease or purchase. Nevertheless, it is possible to find a marina for rent. Buying a marina is worthwhile especially for those who have the financial means and want to design the marina according to their own ideas. After all, it is much easier to carry out alterations if there is no landlord watching over the rented or leased property with a veto. A marina for lease or rent, on the other hand, is worthwhile if interested parties do not have the financial means to buy. In this case, repairs and maintenance measures are the responsibility of the respective landlord or lessor. In this case, it is much easier to sell the property.
