Community marina in central Dubrovnik CROATIA: Boaters living in and around Dubrovnik can now moor their vessels in Batala Marina, a new public boat harbour completed in two phases by Marinetek NCP. The facility is part of an urban development plan to revitalise the coastline of Gruz Harbour, which sits 2km (1.2mi) northwest of the 16 th century walls of the old city. A very important City project, Batala embodies the County Port Authority’s vision for meeting the berthing demands of local boat owners, many of whom have tied up at swing moorings for years. The new marina, with Marinetek Heavy Duty floating concrete pontoons, offers around 500 secure berths giving the City not only one of the most modern marinas in Croatia but a true community boating hub. As main contractor, Marinetek built and supplied six piers with a WORLD NEWS total length of 600m (1,968ft). For the first phase, the company focused on a 100m (328ft) long pier designed for the first 60 boats, and in phase two delivered and installed four further piers and a breakwater pontoon with inner berths. All pontoons are anchored using Seaflex with reinforced concrete anchor blocks. Temporary galvanised steel bridges connecting the piers with the shore have been installed until coastal works are complete. Batala Marina has been long awaited and was subject to many permits and environmental impact assessments but local people have described the new marina as excellent, says Zeljko Dadic, principal of the Port Authority. “We now have the most beautiful community harbour in the entire Adriatic in the centre of our city and it satisfies the needs of local people and the County Port Authority. We are very satisfied with Marinetek’s work, with no delays in delivery or installation of the pontoons. All was completed within the planned deadlines.” “The new marina is very well integrated within the site of the city’s port, and its users – the owners of small boats – are especially satisfied with the safety and organisation offered by the new piers,” notes Marinetek NCP managing director, Boris Miskic. “With this project, Marinetek has gained another important reference in southern Croatia and the city administration has made good on a promise it made to its citizens.” Discussing the merits of superyachts UAE: Attendees at The Dubai International Superyacht Summit, organised by Fabmar and hosted by P&O Marinas 28 th February-1 st March, acknowledged how much work there is to accomplish in efforts to create an ‘Emirati Riviera’, superyacht hub and winter destination. Expert speakers from around the world and the UAE were almost unanimous in acknowledging the vast potential of the region and in stressing the improvements needed to realise this potential. One of the most notable challenges is the need to address the overcomplication of procedures and free movement of visiting yachts. Regulations should be revised to meet the needs of the multi-national superyacht crews intending to cruise in UAE waters. Organiser, Fabiana Maccarini, deemed the event a success. “This is the first, but not the last superyacht summit in the region. The goodwill and positivity of all players is very pleasing and bodes well for the future,” she said. Mohammed Al Mannaei, CEO of P&O Marinas, confirmed that P&O Marinas will continue the process of bringing the points discussed to the attention of the authorities. P&O Marinas further invites all players to come together and assist the authorities in a constructive manner to streamline the cruising experience for all yachts, whether they are local or foreign, private or commercial. www.marinaworld.com - May/June 2018 11
