WORLD NEWS Lake marina ready for first Photo: Asia Pacific Superyachts Indonesia season ITALY: As Italy begins to contemplate life after COVID- 19, Walcon Marine’s latest project in the country will be a magnet for visitors. The new marina is located in a stunning location at Castelletto Ticino to the south of Lake Maggiore, one of the largest and most beautiful of the famous Italian lakes in the north of the country. It has been built as part of the development of a contemporary, stylish new lakeside headquarters complex designed by Piuarch for Techbau, a major Italian construction and civil engineering company, and sits directly in front of the building. Walcon’s Italian partner Walcon Marine Italia (operating as the Sistema Walcon brand) was responsible for the supply of the marina, which has been engineered by Walcon to make full use of the lines of an existing curving breakwater that protects the location from swell and wash. The mooring facilities comprise a 190m (620ft) walkway that runs along the inside of the breakwater and provides stern-to mooring for around 40 boats up to 12m (39ft) in length, and a second straight 68m (223ft) walkway for stern-to mooring on both sides for a similar number of boats. This pier projects out into the harbour. Poised for visitors when lockdown eases BALI: Benoa Marina, the first ‘international standard’ marina in Indonesia, opened in January. The facility was built by Pelindo Property Investments (PPI Marina), a subsidiary of government harbour company Pelindo. The marina has been built using Antares aluminium pontoons (a Walcon Marine Italia variant of Walcon’s System 2000 range), polyethylene floats and Novowood WPC decking in an attractive copper-brown colour. Access to each walkway is via two 10m x 2m (33ft x 7ft) access bridges with aluminium handrails. The marina is managed by CM Nautica and is open to the general public. “The new marina has space for 3 x 90m [10 x 295ft] vessels in alongside positions and non-potable water can be supplied,” explained Thomas Taatjes of Asia Pacific Superyachts in Bali. “Shore power is via genset rental and we (APS) have a genset we can use for our clients and also water treatment facilities to make the dock water potable,” he added. “The floating pontoons are top quality and easily accessed by ramps, making provisioning and spare part deliveries simple and convenient. The lines are secured using the pilings which are spaced at 10m [33ft] and have a diameter of 90cm [35in], so straps and shackles are required. Transport can be arranged from a variety of sources,” he continued. Connected to the airport by a flyover, it is a fast pick up and drop off at the boat for guests and the perfect starting point for cruising once Indonesia is open to arrivals. On down-time, all the hotspots of Bali are within reach and guests and crew will enjoy everything on offer inside and outside the marina. - May/June 2020 13
