It has 70 years of experience of work with shipping companies, transport companies and ship crews from different countries.

Its pontoon berths can accommodate 230 yachts, including six yachts of 40 to 50 meters long. The marina technical area can house up to 20 yachts up to 20 meters long.

In 2008, during the initial period of preparation for the 2014 Sochi Olympic Games, the Program of construction of Olympic facilities was launched; its separate paragraph was named “The development of the coastal infrastructure of Sochi seaport.” Significant investments in hydro-engineering and other protective structures were made by the Federal Government within the public and private partnership, which created in Sochi city port favorable wave conditions and allowed the investor in the person of Novoship, OJSC and the project team of the investor represented by Sochi Seaport, OJSC, the traditional Sochi seaport operator, to develop and implement the most complex and unique project of a sole so far in the country premium class marina. This project was called “Sochi Grand Marina.”

Since October, 2013, Sochi Grand Marina has opened its sea gates to the port guests. By 2016, the marina has been planned to be expanded up to 300 berths. Sochi Grand Marina is also considered as a venue for national and international regattas, launched with Tall Ships Regatta in May, 2014. The following Russian and foreign experts and consultants took part in the implementation of the project: Mourjan Marinas IGY, Marinetek Finland OY, SF Marina Group Sweden, Yugmorstroy-T, LLC.

Year-round berths at concrete pontoon pier made by Marinetek (Finland) and SF Marina (Sweden) ensures comfort and safety. The maximum estimated waves in the harbor does not exceed 0.6 m during storms, repeated once every 50 years.
