Mega Tango by THE SAFE, COMPACT, SELF-PROPELLED SUBMERSIBLE BOAT CARRIAGE One man can easily and safely do dry docking and launching of sailing and motor boats on ramps and slipways with a SUBLIFT.

PLANNING & DESIGN Left: Docks at Porto Belo are of umbrella and fishbone shape to provide additional protection and aesthetic appeal. Below: Landside space is reserved for car parks and promenades, and buildings are constructed on floating platforms. Setting first class marina standards in southern Brazil When the municipality of Porto Belo in the beautiful state of Santa Catarina on the south coast of Brazil issued a tender for a public marina in 2014 it was seeking a modern nautical facility to complement its excellent sailing waters. Nautical infrastructure is far from new in Santa Catarina as more leisure boats are actually built in this state than anywhere else in Brazil. With well over 25 boat builders in residence, including big names like Azimut, Pershing, Armatti and Schaefer, the region deserves a premier marina hub. It also deserves an additional tourist destination. Mayor, Emerson Stein, describes the ocean as Porto Belo’s “most valuable asset” for a city with a population of around 25,000 and an annual tourist influx in excess of 1,000,000. “The pristine, calm water of Enchanted Ensenada is the perfect location for a marina,” he says. “Also, the proximity of other beautiful nautical destinations in the area makes it superbly positioned for a facility that serves 365 days of boating.” Winning the design tender Brazilian company, Squalo Marinas, a specialist with 35 years of marina and waterfront project development in the Americas, won the tender to develop a project for a 500-slip marina for boats up to 180ft (55m). The brief was to integrate the vision with the local landscape and make best use of site. Safety, comfort, service, and environmental and social sustainability were high priorities and main goals for the project, explained Squalo principal Ronaldo Souza CMM, a port and civil engineer who is also principal of Westrec Marinas Latin America. Porto Belo Public Marina will have a floating dock infrastructure with finger piers. A 16ft (5m) wide concrete floating wave attenuator will be positioned as the farthest dock, covering and protecting the marina from wake action generated by its 500 boats. Docks will be of umbrella and fishbone shape to provide additional protection and aesthetic appeal. Adding the amenities As there are good boatyards with repair facilities in the city of Itajay, just 18mi (29km) north of the marina, there is no need for a yard at Porto Belo. Amenities will thus comprise a visitor reception area with front desk, marina administration facilities, a customer lounge with ocean views, bathrooms, a well-supplied convenience store, a high-speed fuel and pump-out dock, rental lockers, a security room and a helipad for up to three helicopters. All will be installed on floating structures near the shore. Land area is reserved for regular and valet parking, the – November/December 2020 41
