Both forms of investment and development of marinas satisfy the criteria of entrepreneurship, which is important for each global and European economy. The purpose of this research is explanation of the possibilities for development of marinas and their immediate and distant destination which supports the development of the local economy. The scientific and research achievements were applied and, for the purpose of transparency, a case study showing several marinas and the examples of two basic models of development are presented. Structurally, this research consists of two parts, namely (1) a theoretical part, where a definition of nautical tourism and its classification are presented and (2) the development of specific indicators of marinas in Europe are explored. }, doi = {10.12716/1001.07.03.19}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Economic Matters, European Model of Economic Development, Marina Development, Nautical Tourism, Marina, Urban Municipal Investment, Marina Market, Maritime Tourism} }
