During the recent years in Latvia there has been growth in the number of yacht and boat hobby (sport) lovers and accordingly along this also the number of water transport dealers increases.

And what about possibility to get stationary and high quality maintenance? And temporal lifting of the boat from the water and back into the water without order of the crane in advance? In how many places it is possible to get ashore with the yacht or boat to the service center to wash the boat in one hour and to use cosy rest area and drink coffee with good service provided?

These are sore points for many owners of the yachts and boats and honestly saying there are no such kind of places in Latvia, where your boat could have temporal technical maintenance or wash and where you could get comfortable service and store your boat for a warm winter keeping.

Uldis Čakānis to internet portal seaclub says that the market of yachts and boats in Latvia every year gets bigger. The greatest part of the market is used yachts, but as it also is in car market, the tendency of buying new yachts grows. Basically people choose to buy yacht of smaller size and then step by step change over to bigger boats. As owner of Laivu depo says the biggest misfortune is to those clients who with the small income want to buy old and big boat... - Expensive and frequent repairs, expensive maintenance and hardly accessible details. One of the aspects that facilitates demand on new boats are credits. At the moment banks have not worked out special credit offers for buying yachts and boats, but it is possible to get credit. Banks are interested in the stance of dealers - for what sum of money they will be ready to buy the boat back, but the credit is mostly given after evaluation of the financial situation of the client not the boat.  Also essential tendency in the market of yachts and boats are service of operative leasing.

Uldis Čakānis admits that the most essential marketing instrument in this market is annual „Boatshow”. Also Laivu depo uses such kind of advertising activities as organizing of the fashion week, ads in prestige magazines, spreading of booklets and advertising materials.

Future tendencies:

To Laivu depo owner’s mind boats and yachts can not be sold with catalogue or in the salon. It is essential to have demo (test) boats so the client could sail to sea and to feel these special feelings and emotions of this fantastic hobby - emotions of yacht and boat recreation and only afterwards to make the choice. Also essential conditions for development of this business are development of ports and docks and provision of guarantee service and also provision of storage. “Laivu depo” Ltd is planning to build its second hangar of warm storage and to build another port. Essential development project for the coming year is connected with improvement of the recreation complex - establishment of the picnic places near the docks and provision of lodging. As Uldis admits for clients and guests it is important that the area of recreation and the port are separated areas, but at the same time nearby each other. The Future vision of the company - complex center of yacht and boat merchandise and service combined with great opportunities of recreation. People are buying recreation boats to have a rest and the seller has to create the scope to service the boat during this rest time.
