Sponsored Content

For so many reasons, Vilanova Grand Marina-Barcelona is the place to be for superyacht captains and crewmembers. The Marina is the first one in the Mediterranean exclusively conceived and designed for superyachts, intended to offer them the best services they deserve for a perfect stay.

Vilanova Grand Marina-Barcelona is strategically located in a privileged environment, in the port of Vilanova, a protected harbour of easy access that enjoys calm, clean waters and unpolluted air. It is a place for crew to enjoy a wonderful mild climate throughout the year, located a few meters from the centre of the peaceful and charming Vilanova i la Geltrú town. In addition, the area is provided with many attractions and leisure facilities in the town itself and nearby, including tennis clubs, fantastic beaches for practising windsurfing, sightseeing, shopping centres and a lively nightlife. The Marina is just only 35 minutes drive from the centre of the cosmopolitan city of Barcelona and just 20 minutes from its International Airport. It also has excellent motorway connections and train station near from the marina facilities.

The Marina has 49 spacious berths accommodating vessels up to 120 metres length, with largest dock of 130 meters. The Marina offers competitive rates and a specialised technical area with 30,000-sqm within its facilities, equipped with the most advanced services for performing all kind of repair and maintenance works. Our helpful professional staff is fully aware of the needs of the superyachts and wish to offer crew a full range of repair and maintenance services, providing all necessary technical aspects for the preparation of their next destination. They ensure that projects are carried out in the most effective manner in all areas, as well as providing an exclusive on-site painting division, Vilanova Grand Marina Painting Services, in partnership with ADP Yacht Painters, a leading company with 25 years’ experience in the industry.

The technical area, which features a large esplanade and workshop area, offers hoisting services with a 200 tonne travel lift and has a wintering dry dock service available. The integration of the technical area and the marina, both under the same management, brings great value to captains and crew as they can deal with every conceivable matter related to their yacht through a single contact.

All details have been taken into account in the Marina to ensure the comfort, safety and privacy of its crewmembers. Onshore facilities and amenities also include a popular crew bar-restaurant with an outdoor chill out terrace and commercial premises for yacht chandlers, engineering, carpentry businesses, etc.

It is remarkable the strong customer-focused approach Vilanova Grand Marina-Barcelona offers, both in yacht and personal needs on shore. The marina’s hospitality desk regularly organizes activities for crew, like the next Vilanova October Crew Party which is celebrated once a year and in the present edition will gather about 300 people; wine-tasting at the region’s best wineries, sports events, go-karting and ski weekend trips only 120 minutes drive to the best ski resorts. The Marina wants to offer, captains and their crew, the chance to feel at home during their stay. It is the greatest opportunity for crewmembers to get in touch with the area and to offer them a tasting of the delicious Mediterranean cuisine, as a result of the strong fishing tradition in the Vilanova i la Geltrú area.

Vilanova Grand Marina-Barcelona is definitely your home in the Med.
