MARINAWORLD@20 Marina Portonovi sits in a sheltered basin in the Bay of Kotor, Montenegro and is integrated with luxury shoreside residences and resort facilities. in the early 1990s, Port Adriano in the southwest of the Bay of Palma, Mallorca was subject to such a significant extension and redesign that by 2012 almost everything was new and trendsetting. Over 80 of its new 400 berths were for vessels up to 60m (197ft); a new technical centre had been built; and communal areas, shopping complex – and even mooring bollards and quayside lights – had been designed by none other than Philippe Starck. • When Marina d’Arechi in Salerno, southern Italy opened in the summer of 2012 with 484 berths, a second phase for a further 516 berths was already underway. The marina was finally completed at the end of 2016 with 1,000 berths (80 of which are for yachts of 15-100m/82-328ft). An exclusive club building with a leaf shaped roof is a striking focal point. • Completed in June 2009 and winner of the PIANC Jack Nichol design award in 2012, Combarro Marina in Galicia, Spain was the final phase of a waterfront rejuvenation project. A total of 329 full service berths for vessels of 6-20m (20-66ft) are distributed on four Ronautica floating pontoons. Update to 2020: An expansion began last year to add 34 new berths for boats up to 26m/85ft (phase one) and 12 further berths for vessels up to 20m/66ft (phase two). • A core element of the revamp of the famous Aker Brygge waterfront entertainment hot spot in Oslo, Norway was a 240-berth marina completed in late 2013 by Marinetek Finland and Nordocks, Norway. The system offers berths up to 23m (75ft) with services via Rolec pedestals. • Marinetek (pontoons), Seaflex (pontoon mooring) and Rolec (dockside services) all rose to the challenge in 2015 to deliver a single-phase 700-berth marina for the Gibraltar Government. The project had a tight timeframe – less than a year – and aimed to provide much needed berths for small boats up to 10m (33ft) in length. • Veljko Barbieri Slano Marina, the first marina to be built by Adriatic Croatia International Club (ACI) in 18 years, was completed by Marinetek NCP in June 2016 and open to the public in August. Accommodating 220 boats up to 20m (65ft), including small charter fleets, the marina is a high-spec build with Indonesian hardwood decking and Marex stainless steel pedestals with smart metering. Slano is a popular tourist destination located 30km (18.6mi) from historic Dubrovnik. • Marina Portonovi, a key element of the €650 million upmarket Portonovi Resort in Montenegro was completed in 2017. The marina, designed by UK-based Marina Projects to integrate with the shoreline elements, comprised fixed piers built by Serbian company Aquamont and a floating pontoon system and breakwater supplied by Marinetek. The floating system is moored by Seaflex and offers a number of small berths for residents, and visitor berths up to 70m (230ft). Update to 2020: Now D-Marin Portonovi and a full-service 238-berth marina with capacity for superyachts up to 120m (390ft). • Designed and built by Ingemar, Capo d’Orlando Marina on the Italian island of Sicily opened in July 2017 with 553 berths for boats up to 40m (131ft) spanning out from two central piers in a deep water basin. Site features include a promenade with retail and dining options, a boatyard and curved facilities buildings. • A new standard was set for Estonian marinas in 2018 when Kakumäe Marina, 10km (6mi) from the centre of capital city Tallinn, opened for business. The marina offers a mix of 300 berths for vessels up to 30m (98ft) and provision for up to 16 megayachts (40- 60m/131-197ft) at a 4m (13ft) wide VIP pier. A boatyard, drystack and various recreational facilities are included. With a stunning peninsula style retail and restaurant centre, Port Adriano set new standards for design when it opened in the Bay of Palma, Mallorca. 32 – September/October 2020 Fast, silent and compact semi-automated stacking equipment Designed and Manufactured in-house Engineering advice for the optimum drystack lay-out operation Over 50 years’ experience Distributors & Reps: United States of America Austria/Switzerland United Kingdom/Ireland Australia/New Zealand
