Coinciding with the celebration of the 18th edition of the Monaco Yacht Show, Valencia Yacht Base (VYB) is starting to market its 236 moorings of up to 120 metres in length designed to accommodate super yachts all over the world. The new marina in the city that organised the latest edition of the America's Cup burst onto the international scene with the intention of becoming the leading base in the Western Mediterranean for megayachts.
The marina's state-of-the-art facilities and highest quality services, the highly competitive prices for its moorings, as well as its excellent location and the attractive city of Valencia make up a set of unbeatable features that are extremely attractive for megayachts that combine the Mediterranean and Caribbean seasons.
The most modern nautical base in the Western Mediterranean
Situated in the new Levante base of the Valencia Royal Yacht Club, the VYB has been established as an elite base for super yachts of 20 to 120 metres in length, providing ease of access for the yachts thanks to its 10 metre draught. The special configuration of its floating concrete walkways and fingers makes it possible to moor the yachts alongside them and benefit from their protection against the wind.
The new marina has a harbour master, chandlery, a transit dock, a direct supply of fuel, a reception office and a 24 hour crew office, as well as access to a heliport that makes it possible for the port's clients to arrive by air. Valencia Yacht Base, together with Vulkan Shipyard, one of the best dry docks in Spain, situated only 10 miles from the marina, offer an integral repair and maintenance service for long yachts.
Privacy and security
VYB’s clients have their own storeroom in front of the walkway together with covered car park spaces. Above all, users are guaranteed security. Privacy is ensured thanks to the restricted access to the marina, the walkways and the car park. In addition, these areas are separated from the leisure and dining facilities, constructed on different levels, in order to avoid inconveniences for the shipowner and his guests.
Valencia Yacht Base will also receive safety certification from the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS), certifying that the port is implementing security regulations for the accommodation and traffic of yachts. This certification is the most widely accepted in the world.
Services for the crew and luxury facilities
As well as the optimum technical characteristics that make Valencia Yacht Base one of the most modern spaces in the south of Europe, its facilities provide comprehensively for the needs of the yachts and their crew during their stay.
Valencia Yacht Base will accommodate a wide ranging and exclusive 10,000 m2 leisure complex that will house a variety of leisure facilities, such as commercial and leisure premises, restaurants, establishments specialising in nautical services, an outdoor swimming pool, a children's play area and gardens, amongst many other services.
In VYB, capitains amd crew will find all services they need for the daily maintenance of their yachts. The base will be provided of spaces and rooms specially designed for the crews, incluiding working areas and a special resting area.
Valencia, a cosmopolitan environment
Valencia has communications, financial, cultural, educational and leisure facilities that make the city an excellent destination for all those sailors who do not want to limit the enjoyment of their yachts to the summer periods. The mild climate - more than 300 days of sun a year and an average temperature of 19º centigrade - and the calm sea make Valencia a perfect destination throughout the whole year.
Only a four hour sail from the Balearic Islands, and less than 24 hours from the Cote d'Azur, Corsica and Sardinia, Valencia, a metropolitan area of one and a half million people, is today one of the principal capitals of the Mediterranean. With a total of 10 international centres of education and diverse bilingual secondary schools, Valencia also has an outstanding and varied cultural and leisure provision, and has become one of the leading cities for the celebration of important sporting events, such as the 32nd edition of the America's Cup and the Formula 1 Grand Prix. Finally, its rich and varied gastronomy completes its long list of attractions for the tourist or occasional resident.
