Marina di Varazze, the exclusive club on the western Riviera

A friendly place for boat-owners and residents, an array of exclusive services for boats. Marina di Varazze is a modern port where life onboard ship and time on shore are made all the more enjoyable by the facilities available. Where your boat is always shipshape, and where a short visit becomes an experience to repeat more often and for longer. Looking after boats and boat-owners. That is the key at Marina di Varazze.

In addition to 800 berths and 900 indoor and outdoor parking places, Marina di Varazze is much more than a modern tourist port. The company is part of the Azimut-Benetti group, a leader in the luxury motoryacht market, and the port benefits from many years of undisputed experience which the parent company has now decided to transfer from boat-building to port development, to offer cutting-edge services.

The difference is immediately evident. Marina di Varazze is very easy to get to. For boat-owners who decide to reach the port by train or plane, Genoa station and airport are linked to the marina by a reservable shuttle service. And once at the port, luggage trolleys make it easy to transport everything right to the water’s edge. The marina also provides bicycles and electric courtesy cars to move around within the port area.

Indulging your palate at Marina di Varazze is child’s play: there are a large number of restaurants and bars on shore, but on request the catering service will also organise lunches and dinners onboard. And on Sundays in the Summer it is possible to book breakfast onboard, accompanied by your favourite newspaper.

The many state-of-the-art facilities available in the port mean that keeping your yacht at Marina di Varazze allows you to consider your boat only as relaxation, forgetting all the small and large tasks that are necessary to keep it ready for the sea. In Marina di Varazze you will find everything you need right in the port.

The expert personnel will deal with everything: maintenance and storage, hauling out and launching, hull repairs, painting of hulls in wood and fibreglass, electronic repairs, systems installation, and mechanical servicing for marine engines, electrical repairs right at the mooring, carpentry work, sail-making and repairs, cleaning and transfers. As well as these practical services, Marina di Varazze offers consultancy for the purchase and sale of new and second hand boats, overhauling, inspections, boat rentals, assistance and consultancy for administrative formalities and for contacts with the Maritime Authorities.

The marina personnel is ready to help you organise your free time when you decide to stay ashore. The concierge service at the reception desk will reserve restaurants and hotels, book air tickets and theatre seats, rent scooters and cars, from a small Smart to a large luxury model, or book the shuttle service to the nearby golf courses in Albisola and Cogoleto.

The elegant shopping arcade with its boutiques and restaurants can cater for every need: from nautical accessories to clothing, jewellery and designer sunglasses. There is also a wide choice of eating-places, elegant bars frequented by VIPs and celebrities that are a must at the cocktail hour, restaurants with tables alfresco along the jetty for a pizza or fresh fish cooked on the spot, and traditional local cuisine in smart restaurants on the terrace that overlooks the main square of the marina.

Marina di Varazze is equipped with a permanent security system. Constantly updated weather forecasts can be consulted at the Harbour Office. The entire area is covered by a wireless connection and there is also an Internet point. What is more, even when they are absent, boat-owners can check on their boats using the web cam service.

The lavish array of all the services on shore and the shops and restaurants are obviously open to anyone who chooses to live in Marina di Varazze, in one of the thirty prestigious apartments that overlook the marina.
