SUPERYACHT FACILITIES and nearby hinterland. MP Network and the marina management team are working with regional partners such as the Mayor of Capo d’Orlando, Legambiente Sicily and Nebrodi Park and this network, in turn, promotes the marina as a privileged starting point for special itineraries. It is a new idea for creating nautical tourism. “From Marche to Tuscany, passing through Sicily, yachtsmen who choose one of the MPN marinas will have the opportunity to explore and gain unique insight into the land beyond the dock,” Caielli muses. “We are pursuing a series of collaborations for every marina in the network not only with trade associations or entities such as Confartigianato in Marche and the Nebrodi Park in Sicily but by identifying and promoting excellent companies in the region.” Capo d’Orlando Marina also has its own special historic feature, the Cava del Mercadante where Roman artefacts have been discovered. “Inside the harbour there is a pedestrian tourist route to reach the ancient cave, a protected archaeological site of rare interest whose rocks, emerging from the sea, were once gathered for use as grinding mills. The cave is located within the port, where it stretches out to the west of the shorter pier. The extension is about 100m [328ft] long and 4-5m [13-16ft] wide.” Filling up quite rapidly, the marina has attracted Sicilian and other Italian customers and 20% of berths so far The quayside promenade with its innovative buildings is well lit at night. have been taken by foreigners. “Over 140 berths have been leased, 44 with a three-year contract, 20 with a 30-year contract and the rest as seasonals,” confirms MP Network sales manager Gianfranco Casubolo. “We have allocated 46 berths for visitors and a further 94 are dedicated to charter.” The Award Winning Atlantis Service Pedestal World Leaders in the Design, Manufacture and Installation of Marina Services Maricer (CPES Ltd) Vale Industrial Estate, Spilsby, Lincolnshire PE23 5HE United Kingdom +44 (0) 1790 753164 - November/December 2017 45
