Camper & Nicholsons Marinas has been appointed to operate the new Ermioni Marina, south of Athens, which is scheduled to open for the 2014 season. The marina will accommodate 127 yachts up to 65m in length, and will provide the high quality facilities and service standards that visitors to a C&N marina expect.
Located on the Peloponnese Peninsula about 50NM south of Athens, Ermioni is a Herculean stone’s throw from the islands of Hydra, Dokos and Spetses and boasts one of the most beautiful cruising grounds in Greece. A site of unparalleled natural beauty and a naturally safe harbour, the marina is set to establish a new benchmark for marina excellence in Greece, blending discretely with its surroundings.
The marina can be reached by road or fast ferry in less than two hours. Its location, only 20 minutes from Porto Heli, Greece’s ‘Cap Ferat’ will provide a much needed five-star facility for villa owners in the area to berth their yachts. For Athens-based yacht owners Marina Ermioni will save the time and money otherwise spent travelling from Athens to reach these islandstudded cruising grounds. The marina will have its own bars, restaurants and shops as well as a swimming pool and chandlery.
Camper & Nicholsons collaborated on the design of the marina with the owner and developer, Ermioni Marina S.A. Ermioni Marina S.A. whose principal and management is highly experienced in development within Greece, intends to bring world class marina standards to the stunning town of Ermioni, focusing on a design that will blend with the environment and services normally associated with marinas in other world class destinations.
The President of the board of Marina Ermioni S.A. said, “With Camper & Nicholsons’ pedigree and their international reach, we see Ermioni Marina becoming both a sought-after home port for Athenian yacht owners and a destination for cruising yachts of all flags. We are very pleased to have made this association and are keen to extend our marina coverage within Greece".
James Beaver, C&N’s Chief Operating Officer said, “Our appointment to operate Ermioni Marina follows a consultative relationship that revealed an ideal match between our expertise and Ermioni Marina’s vision for the marina. We are delighted to be involved in making that vision a reality.”
Construction is due to start within 2012 and will take approximately 18 months, with the opening date scheduled for late 2013 / early 2014.
