DIRECT AND INDIRECT IMPACT OF NAUTICAL TOURISM ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF LOCAL ECONOMY IN WEST POMERANIA ON THE EXAMPLE OF DARŁOWO MUNICIPALITY
Keywords: sailing infrastructure, yacht marina, local development
AbstractThe aim of the article is to determine the direct and indirect benefits from the development of nautical tourism in the West Pomerania. The study was founded on the economic base theory, which attributes local development to exogenous factors. In accordance with its premises, the direct benefits include the initial sailing spendings. The lack of a comparative base made it impossible to determine their exact significance for the economy. The calculated tax revenues – as one of the categories of indirect benefits – comprised a small part of the local budget, but with the income of the port operator they allowed to cover the investment outlays for the development of sailing infrastructure. Qualitative analysis confirmed that the majority of indirect benefits accumulates in the local economy. Sailing tourism may become an important aspect in the development of the West Pomerania’s local economy. This, however, will require further development of sailing infrastructure and broadening the scope of available services.
