Vilanova Grand Marina – Barcelona introduces new services and facilities to continue catering for the needs of superyachts. The specialised marina announced at the Monaco Yacht Show that its helipad has full operational capacity, allowing yachts owners to reach the marina quickly, more comfortably and in complete privacy. Helicopters can also take off and land on the flight deck of superyachts that are moored at the marina.
Additionally the marina has increased the number of storerooms available to its customers with the completion of a building with sixteen 17-square-metre storerooms that can also be used as private covered car parks.
The major development that the marina will undertake in the near future is the construction of a 2,000-square-metre area for the exclusive use of captains and crew. This new land-based facility will consist of a building featuring a gym, changing rooms and an indoor leisure area and will be surrounded by a green area with BBQ’s facilities.
The activity at the marina continues to rise in line with expectations. 2010 was a good, satisfactory year with a wintering activity that doubled that of the previous year in terms of turnover. Ignacio Erroz stated: “Our marina has certainly found its place within the Superyacht industry as shown by our level of occupancy. We expect our activity to continue growing in 2011 in view of the number of confirmations we have had so far”.
