GLOBAL REVIEW 2015 Blue Haven Marina is an idyllic destination marina with access to high-end resort amenities. marina, residential, retail and spa hotel project that aims to be the focal point of an area regeneration scheme. MDL Marinas, meanwhile, added a further 20 marinas to its Freedom Berthing Network, which offers complimentary stays at other MDL marinas in the UK, Spain, Italy and France, bringing the total to over 90. Off the coast of the UK, work completed on a £3 million project to regenerate St Helier Harbour in Jersey. The improvement works focused on visitor berths and holding pontoons. In France, Paris-based marina consultancy MDL France was appointed to undertake a new design Below right: CGI of Harbour Twenty- Six, a megayacht dockominium in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The second phase in a project to install pontoons at Port Pierre Canto in Cannes, South of France, was also completed. Several significant marina and berthing projects were completed in the Benelux region of Belgium in the first half of the year. Mechelse Waterski Klub finished a major refurbishment project that included the construction of a new clubhouse and berthing facilities for over 100 speedboats up to 12m (39.3ft) in length. In the Netherlands, Jachthaven de Molenwaard in Hasselt installed a pier with ten finger pontoons and completed the refurbishment of two adjacent piers with hammerheads. At Roompot Marina in Kamperland, the 218m (715ft) Pier 2 was rebuilt, complete with a new walkway and 16 finger pontoons. A subsidiary walkway with 15 finger pontoons was also added. In Sweden, Pontech AB signed an agreement late in the year to buy German business Marina Systeme from Saferoad A/S. The company is Germany’s largest producer and distributor of concrete pontoons and accessories for marinas. Marina Systeme is now trading as Pontech Marina Systeme GmbH. The year also proved exciting for Spain, as it benefited from 2014 legislation allowing all charter yachts operating in the country to claim exemption from the infamous matriculation tax. In 2014, non-EUflagged superyachts were also allowed to charter within Balearic waters. Totals leapt from zero to 33 licences recorded over the year. As 2016 crept closer, an expansion project to add seven new superyacht berths at Port Andratx in Mallorca began. Marinetek Finland was commissioned to build a 700 berth marina in Gibraltar for small local boats of up to 10m (32.8ft) in length. Gibraltar’s Development and Planning Commission was also granted approval to build superyacht berths at the existing Ocean Village. The Marina Bay master plan outlines ten superyacht berths with secure access and all modern hospitality facilities. - January/February 2016 25 MW2016JanFeb.indd 25 05/01/2016 09:34:11
