IWMC 2023: IN THE FIELD boatyard boasts a 60 ton travel hoist, slipway and crane, additional lifts, and hardstand for 200 boats. Expansion plans are also underway adjacent to the main basin where a new 50-year marina concession has been secured for a 68-berth facility for vessels of 20-40m (66-131ft) in length. The project will involve extending two existing piers, dredging the entire area to 4.5m (15ft) depth and installing three pontoons. There is a long waiting list for berths at Vilamoura and the new offerings are top-level, with pump-out points on the pontoons and an electric charge point at each berth. “The new marina will have all the amenities of a smart marina,” Isolete Correia says. “The focus will be on security, sustainability and customer service, making sure that the expectations of guests are met.” A retail area adjacent to the marina will also be totally refurbished to meet guest expectations. Marina de Lagos Located in the Bay of Lagos, Marina de Lagos is a family-owned marina that opened in 1994. Martinho Fortunato CMM, CEO of Marlagos (owner of the marina) and Ingrid Fortunato CMM, marina manager, enjoy a close relationship with the town. The marina benefits from a year-round season and a strategic position as a crossroads to the sailing routes between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, to the Azores and Madeira, and north to the northern European harbours. It also sits on the Golden Coast, named for the striking yellow colouration of the rocky cliffs. Delegates left the marina by boat to see the rocky cliffs that give the Golden Coast its name. Marina World Welcoming around 2,000 visitors per annum, Marina de Lagos has 464 full-service berths for boats up to 30m (98ft), shops, restaurants and bars. The Fortunatos like to be in the forefront of new thinking and new concepts and have installed a biohut artificial nursery habitat for small fish, and an events pontoon, built by Lindley Marinas, that has all-new eco-friendly composite decking and an electric boat charge point. The latter has, to date, only been used for an electric boat event. The marina is also one of a growing number of facilities to adopt the new on-screen advertising concept developed by Marketing Marina (see inset story).

Marina de Albufeira Marina de Albufeira, with its strikingly unforgettable highly coloured buildings, opened in 2003 primarily as a tourist port. A huge phase of nautical development is now due to start so as to fully cement the marina’s position in the tourism sector. The marina currently has 475 boat berths and 35 berths for jet skis. Permission has been secured for a potential 70 to 80 additional moorings.
