SUPERYACHT FACILITIES Historic surroundings, beautiful coastline and modern facilities make Marina Izola in Slovenia popular for vessels up to 45m (148ft). access to islands such as Ischia and Capri, Base Nautica Flavio Gioia enjoys an excellent location for visitors and long-term berth holders alike. Of its 200 berths, 20 are for superyachts up to 70m (230ft) in length. It is ISO 9001 certified for quality and ISO 14.001 certified for the environment. A little further north, along the Tuscan coast, we find Marina Cala De Medici, in surroundings celebrated by poets and artists and famous for its oils, wines and game. An elegant and well-designed facility, it offers 650 berths for yachts up to 36m (118ft). “We give customers a welcome bag designed according to the size and standards of their boat,” explains Paola Ribeiro Franci, head communication officer, “and for owners who prefer to be anchored outside the marina, we offer, on request, a dedicated on-board service.” “For years we have embraced the concept of a network and to present ourselves under the single MINSY brand makes it easier to be recognised abroad,” she continues. “In the future, we envisage common host initiatives, for example ‘fidelity cards’ offering benefits to captains and ship owners.” In the Adriatic Sea, Marina San Giusto in Trieste stands out as a city port. An oasis of luxury, it sits within a region known for good cuisine and famous sparkling wine. San Giusto has two central floating pontoons and the Peschiera and Venice quays where the yacht club, reception and services are located. It can also host yachts requiring international security measures (ISPS). “The 2018 trend was positive for both maxi and mega yachts,” confirms marina director Fabiano Parrello. “More visits and slightly longer stays have led us to enhance services. We plan to increase the electricity supply capacity to the moorings and provide a wired broadband connection. In concert with MINSY, we expect to increase our visibility in the international field as a megayacht port and obtain advantageous commercial agreements to increase the quantity and above all the quality of the services we provide. This is fundamental for consolidating good results and desirable for expansion in our market”. Also in the northern Adriatic, Marina Sant’Andrea of San Giorgio di Nogaro has a sporting spirit and a special location in the Marano Lagoon, approached via a deep navigable canal or by land from the Trieste/ Venice motorway. Positioned between the Grado and Lignano Sabbiadoro beaches, it has over 700 berths and can host yachts up to 30m (98ft) in length, with related services for both yachts and crews. As a service yard for Nautor Swan and the Azimut-Benetti Group, the marina has extensive boatyard facilities. Marina Izola in Slovenia, 18 nautical miles away from Marina Sant’Andrea, has 700 berths for boats up to 45m (148ft) in length. Marina Izola is protected by two breakwaters and has very generous fairways. A modern, environmentally friendly and very well equipped facility, it is located at the heart of beautiful coastline and in the historic centre of a brilliant Italian/ Slovenian small town. The remaining two MINSY marinas - Marina Santelena and Marina Fiorita – are in Venice. Stefano Costantini, CEO of the marina development and management company for both marinas, describes the advantages. “Marina Fiorita can moor five megayachts and is the only terminal from which guests on large yachts can easily reach the nearby beaches of Iesolo, Caorle, Rimini and surroundings. These places are inaccessible for yachts above 40m [131ft] but can be reached quickly with one of our rental cars. Guests can travel anywhere in the Laguna and in Venice using our 5/6m [16/20ft] rental boats [with or without driver],” he continues. “In Marina Santelena, just a few minutes walk from Piazza San Marco, we can also host very large boats and in the Yacht Club Venezia, we organise beautiful events together with the Principality of Monaco. We have also created a series of services with the 5-star hotels of Venice, a sort of high-level concierge.” And, fortunately, climate change issues pose no immediate threat. “With regard to the catastrophic events that hit Italy in early November [last year], we have fewer problems. We are protected by the Laguna that dampens the effects of the sirocco and bora winds on the sea. The only problem may be the high water, but our piers are floating and the pier of Santelena is 2.20m [7ft] high. Just days ago, Venice was under water but we were not,” he confirms. The shopping village at Marina Cala de Medici is a vibrant spot by day and night. - January/February 2019 19
