Chinese investors to attract rich Russians to Jurmala, Latvia

Shanghai-based yacht charter company, the rather straight-forwardly named Billionaire Yacht Club, has announced that it plans to invest up to EUR 25m in Jurmala in Latvia, reports news2biz LATVIA.

Jurmala is a seaside resort just 20 km away from Riga which historically has been very popular with Russian tourists, including some of the biggest Russian pop stars and celebrities. It already has a small port, which does see some yachts. However, the yacht club project could give it a much-needed boost.

"We see a big market in Sweden, Norway and Germany, so we are very excited about this project in Jurmala," says Pascal Anh Quan Vuan Saken, chairman of Billionaire Yacht Club, to news2biz. "We see a second region, too. Wealthy Russian customers already spend their summers in Jurmala. It is so close to Russia that it could easily be a weekend destination, and, instead of going to South of France, Russian customers could come to Jurmala. We are pretty sure that Jurmala will become the Saint-Tropez of Saint Petersburg and Moscow in the future."

Mr. Saken admits that the project still faces several issues: "Jurmala does not yet have the capacity and logistics needed to provide the entertainment wealthy Russian tourists expect; for example, there are not enough five-star hotels."

Therefore, Billionaire Yacht Club is planning to develop a beach club and a restaurant in addition to the yacht club. Pascal Saken also believes that, more businesses will develop as the yacht club starts bringing in more tourists: "We plan to invest in a yacht club and bring world-class luxury yachts to Jurmala which creates synergies; as more and more customers come, more services will follow."

Billionaire Yacht Club will start its Latvian operations by bringing six mega-yachts to Jurmala, which, according to Mr. Saken, could already happen in mid-July or early August, once the yacht club completes an engineering study. In October, the club plans to add a shipyard to Jurmala, where it could overhaul, repair and refit its yachts.

Operations throughout Asia
Jurmala will be among the first European forays for the yacht club, but it already has a strong presence in Asia.
"We are well-established in Asian regions like Phuket and Shanghai, and we have many wealthy customers and members in the Middle East", says Pascal Vu Anh Quan Saken.
