The Highs of 2019 2019 was an encouraging year in terms of new marina builds and major refurbishment and operations contracts, confirming that our industry continues to attract serious investment at a global level. In North America and the Caribbean, Port Louis Marina was extended in Grenada and Nanny Cay in Tortola, BVI renovated following hurricane damage; Friday Harbour on Lake Simcoe in Ontario, Canada completed its second phase; Suntex announced multi-million dollar plans to renovate Las Olas Marina in Fort Lauderdale; and F3 Marina also broke ground in Fort Lauderdale with its F3 Drystack, designed to take drystack to the next level of service and technology. Planning and design progressed for the five-year phased rebuild of The Marina at Dana Point in southern California, which at over 2,400 slips is the largest on the US west coast. In Southeast Asia and Oceania, Discovery Bay Marina Club in Hong Kong was rebuilt; construction started on a new marina – Argo Yacht Club – in Tainan, Taiwan; and Ana Marina in Nha Trang, Vietnam readied for opening. Resort consent was granted to add over 250 berths to Port Marlborough’s Waikawa Marina in New Zealand and the first phase of Trinity Point Marina on Lake Macquarie, NSW, Australia opened for business. In Queensland, work began on 318-berth Gateway Marina near Bundaberg and a 66-berth extension was announced for Sanctuary Cove Marina. Stage one of The Boat Works’ North Precinct – the largest superyacht marina and shipyard in the southern hemisphere – was unveiled in May and is due to open early this year. In Europe, Greece continued to invite expressions of interest for several marinas, plans were announced for 440-berth Pilea Marina and a concession awarded for Alimos Marina near Athens. Marina Rovinj on the west coast of the Istrian peninsula in Croatia was rebuilt for ACI and the all-new Marina Vukovar completed on the Danube River. IGY opened IGY Marina Sète in the south of France; a purpose-built superyacht facility and its second European destination. Plans were announced to add extra berths at Buckler’s Hard Marina in Beaulieu, UK, and contracts were issued for a mixed-use marina in the village of Skärhamn on the west coast of Sweden. A new marina in São Miguel in the Azores and a potential - and controversial - behemoth in Balaklava Bay in the Crimea also garnered attention. Company buy-outs and marina operations contracts also hit the headlines. Brunswick Group bought Freedom Boat Club; Jonas Software bought Pacsoft International. D-Marin won a slew of Middle East management contracts and, by March 2019, was operating 14 marinas in five countries. A far more detailed overview of recent marina industry developments will be published in our next edition of Marina World Suppliers & Services (March 2020- March 2021).
