Balatonfüred marina to be renovated by June

The HUF 90 million, European Union-supported renovation of the interior marina at the Balatonfüred Yacht Club on the north shore of Lake Balaton (W Hungary) will be completed in June, club President Attila Nagy told MTI on Thursday.

Nagy said that the European Union financed 39% of the cost of the renovation project, which will entail the expansion of the number of berths at the Balaton Yacht Club's interior marina to 29 from 22 and the repair of the 30-meter-long pier sheltering the 80-year-old facility.

A group of Hungarian aristocrats established the Balatonfüred Yacht Club, the oldest sailing club in Hungary, in March 1867, two weeks before the foundation of the Austro-Hungarian dual monarchy.
