In the western part of Vasilyevsky Island from the street. Bering, leaving Galernaya Gavan on the right side, and the Skipper Canal on the left, then turning right, ends at the pier, winding the old street Skipper channel in St. Petersburg.
The harbor itself was created here by the decree of Peter I. In 1721, a basin for galley ships was dug through a small river called the Black Channel. Then a channel was created, which is now called Skipper.
Once upon a time here in the Galernaya Harbor the Skipper settlement was formed, named after the craft of its inhabitants. The name of the street was formed from its name.
First (since 1812) it was Skipperskaya Street, then (since 1891) - Skipperskaya Embankment, and since 1893 - the embankment of the Skipper Canal.
In the 18th century at the entrance to the Galley Harbor, the so-called navigation signs were installed - crowns or watchtowers. These are structures, formerly wooden, then rebuilt from stone, which were crowned with tall flagpoles.
There they stand to this dayalong the Skipper channel - the Western kronspitz along the street of the Skipper channel 14 and the Eastern kronspitz - in house 12 AB along the same street. The building of the second, once sentinel, building now houses a museum of the history of water rescue.

Of course, most of it is occupied by industrial areas. In general, Vasilyevsky Island in this area began to be built up with residential buildings not so long ago.
Large industrial area
At the address Shkipersky Protok, 14, the plant of PJSC "Priboy" is located, which produces electronic devices and components. In the past, the entire territory with all the buildings at this address was subordinated to this production, but after the collapse of a single country, the management of the enterprise leased part of the premises.
Now the Priboy business center has been erected on its territory, where class B offices, warehouse and production facilities are located.

There are several car repair shops, auto parts stores, companies producing and selling instrumentation, window and door structures, and furniture stores on the territory. "Park Vzmorye" is a company that brings together initiative, business, creative people. Located in the "Mast" building. In total, there are 45 buildings on the territory of the Priboy business center at 14, Skippersky Protok.
