COVER STORY: ACI ACI opens 22 nd marina Marina director Danijela Stankovic (centre) with the Slano Marina team. Right: Slano Marina – day and night. Veljko Barbieri Slano Marina, the first marina to be built by ACI in 18 years, was completed by Marinetek NCP in June and open to the public on 3 rd August. The 200-berth marina accommodates vessels up to 20m (65.6ft) in length and provides berths for private vessels – Croatian and overseas – and small charter fleets. Larger visiting boats can moor up if space permits. “We expect berth occupancy to be 50:50 for Croatians versus overseas boat owners,” says marina director Danijela Stankovic. “Most of our Croatian customers will come from Dubrovnik so that they can be closer to the nearby islands. In terms of charter, we already have one client signed up with a five to ten boat fleet that should eventually expand to 20,” she adds. Designed to exceptionally high standards and with a build cost in excess of HRK60 million (over EUR8 million), Slano Marina is configured with expensive Indonesian hardwood decked Marinetek concrete pontoons. Heavy Duty 3000AC pontoons were used to create two 120m long x 3m wide (394ft long x 9.8ft wide) piers. Type 3800BR pontoons (without keels) form a breakwater to the north and a breakwater of 4300BRK units (with keels) protects the marina basin from the west. A 100m long x 4.3m wide (328ft long x 14ft wide) walkway was also installed at the shoreline. As the marina is located in shallow water, dredging to a depth of 3m (9.8ft) was required and most of the concrete sinkers were buried in order to maintain water depths of at least 2.5m (8ft) at all times. All berths are full-service courtesy of Marex painted stainless steel pedestals with Smart Metering. In addition to offering sheltered quality pontoon mooring, the marina has a pool, pub, restaurant, berth holder sanitary facilities and ample car parking. Situated just 30km (18.6 miles) from the historic part of Dubrovnik and 49km (30.4 miles) from Cilipi Airport, Slano is a favoured tourist destination nestled in a 2km (1.2 mile) bay with sheltered swimming and sailing waters. Marinetek has been instrumental over the past years in ACI renovation plans. “In addition to building Slano Marina from scratch, we’ve refurbished nine ACI marinas to date,” says Marinetek NCP managing director Boris Miskic. “It’s been very rewarding to help bring each marina up to top standard and a great pleasure to design, build and install such high specification infrastructure for ACI’s 22 nd marina,” he adds. - September/October 2016 43
