It is being observed that, these kinds of activities tend to improve in Turkey within the recent years for the reasons like the increase in the national income and acculturation. Consequently, in order for satisfying this demand, new mooring areas with reasonable costs are required. In order to fulfill the berthing and mooring needs of the vessels, cost efficient and environmental solution approaches are need. This article aims to develop a system offering for constitution of sustainable policies with regards to determination of boats berthing and mooring areas that are needed for amateur marine in Turkey. For that reason, geographic information system (GIS) based approaches are taken into consideration for spatial analysis, which is used to specify suggested facilities regarding any component that generates the system. The results showed that the suggested method successfully functions regarding the selection of facility location, and it has been detected that by the suggested system approach, it is possible to achieve new and higher capacities.
