The marina is traditionally designed by connecting the floating berth modules according to the required layout. Submerged reinforced concrete blocks, which are connected to the floating pontoons with special chains, are used for berth anchorage. The total length of the berth is 795 m, it is possible to accommodate about 200 floating craft at a time. In order to preserve the traditional wooden cladding of Ķīpsala, a high-quality larch wood paneling has been used to build the berth.
