Marina of the Month, Port Denia

Written by Gemma Fottles

Ideally located on the Spanish mainland directly opposite the Balearic islands, Port Denia is both a high quality, professional superyacht shipyard and a fully equipped superyacht marina for vessels of up to 130 metres.

Port Denia itself is located in the city of Denia in Alicante, Spain. Its strategic location is conveniently only 45 miles from the islands of Ibiza and Formentera, and en route from the Caribbean to the Costa Azul and Palma Mallorca. The convenience of this location makes Port Denia a fantastic base for both owners and crew alike. One of the many advantages of having the marina and shipyard so close is that when a yacht stays in Denia, owners have a shipyard, practically within a stones throw away, at their disposal.

Among the many facilities available at Port Denia are electricity up to 400 amps and fresh water; blackwater pump; diesel dock and Bunkering; 24-hr dock assistance; free RIB assistance and manoeuvring support; docking assistance; free parking beside marina; chandlery ordering and delivery; engineering and maintenance services. MTU and CAT; immigration assistance; concierge services; florist delivery services and a 27.000 m2 Refit Shipyard 1.200 Tonnes or 75m dry dock capacity - to name but a few.

The shipyard facilities are equally impressive, with 2 slipways which can haul out up to 1200 tonnes, a 150 tonne travel lift, 21,000 m2 dry working area, 2000 m2 specialised warehouse space and a docking area for yachts up to 80 metres in length. In terms of refit services offered by the shipyard, services include painting projects; marine engineering; electrics and electronics; carpentry; interior design/ refits; rigging projects and metalwork.

Recent refit projects undertaken at the shipyard include the 59m Lรผrssen superyacht Vive La Vie, which included the Lloyds 5 year survey, painting works and full revision of electronics amongst other things. The shipyard also completed the full paint refit of the 44m Perini Navi Paz and the 44m Albacora of Tortola, the latter of which involved a full point refit as well as a full refit of the engine room. Most recently, the shipyard has completed the paint refit of the 36m Palmer Johnson 120 Ascari as well as 4 engine MTU 4000 W6 and 2 engine MTU 396 W6 projects.

Representatives of Port Denia state, "Our facilities are designed to cater to all client requirements during the refit or maintenance of your vessel. We boast a professional, multi-disciplinary team with vast experience, ready to carry out the work with an optimum level of quality. The ideal position of Port Denia, located only 45 miles from the islands of Ibiza and Formentera allows us to service yachts preparing for the season in the Mediterranean or heading for the Caribbean. Denia is a cosmopolitan and vibrant town that offers many leisure activities while your yacht is in our safe hands."

Denia is often cited as one of the most beautiful towns on the Spanish coast, and is home to an array of unique, top quality restaurants and hotels - including the famous Michelin Star restaurant Quique Dacosta - as well as two golf courses. With endless leisure activities, blue flag beaches and vibrant social life, Denia is a fantastic destination for both clients and crew.

Despite high professional standards and an ideal location, Port Denia manages to keep its shipyard and marina prices extremely competitive, often more than half the price of neighbouring locations.
