The marina, about 7km from downtown Nha Trang, is designed to house 200 yachts of different types.
As it is located in the 40ha Marina Park of the Ana Marina JSC, it can receive domestic and international yachts and sailboats to visit and organize tourism, sports, and cultural events.
Dang Hieu Minh, general director of Ana Marina JSC, said that the marina has an ideal geographical location, as it can connect marine traffic between Southeast Asia and North Asia, and link Hong Kong (China), Singapore, the Philippines and Malaysia with Vietnamese seaports.
