PLANNING & DESIGN a launching ramp that is equipped to handle the hauling of catamarans and a 150 ton mobile lift for hauling boats up to 30m (100ft). The marina will have three high speed diesel fuelling areas, and one gasoline (petrol) fuelling area. Full provisioning will be available, as well as captain and crew relaxation facilities. After lengthy investigation and discussion with pontoon fabricators it was determined that steel pile anchored aluminium framed floating docks with composite decking will be used. All of the docks will have US power pedestals with full power and water for the variety of boats. The marina will not only be a clean marina but will be a no discharge zone with both a pump-out station and honeyboat. The facility will have its own fire/ safety/rescue boat and a fire pedestal alarm system installed on the pontoons with direct relays to the shore gates and the yacht club. Safe and comfortable facilities Safety, service, environmental sustainability and comfort are all high priorities for this development. The yacht club, located at the prime beachfront location at the northwest corner of the marina basin, provides endless supply of comfort with a spa, pools, lounges and spectacular views of the yachts in the harbour, the beach and the sun sinking into the Pacific Ocean. Various restaurants, bars and shopping opportunities complete the marina village, which will provide services, including full concierge services, not only to the boat owners, yacht club members and residence owners, but also to those at the conference centre that will look out over the waterskiing lagoon and a private beach. The marina has also been set up as a condominium, with slips available for rental and transients. In further testament to the Bertellos’ reputation, 80% of the inner basin’s phase one slips were purchased prior to breaking ground. The condominium residences have also, of course, been positioned to take advantage of the spectacular views of the marina, the adjacent creek delta and the ocean beyond. Peru is known for its water sports and hosted the 2019 world waterski championships. However, finding ideal waterski and wakeboard conditions is rare in the world. Another major feature of the resort is a waterski lagoon meeting or exceeding international tournament requirements that can be used by residents and guests, from beginners to world champions. The waterski lagoon also results in additional waterfront lots that are available for construction of detached single family residences. Waterfront lots are available for detached single family homes overlooking the lagoon. The project involves relocation of over 800,000m³ (just over 1,000,000yd³) of sand, and re-sculpting of the existing contours and landscape to provide a variety of views and active and passive enjoyment opportunities – not a small undertaking. One of the main reasons for the success of the project to date is the Bertellos’ vision and handson involvement, bringing together the various design professionals, stakeholders and local residents, listening to various views and thinking long term. They aim to ultimately create a unique and forward thinking resort that will be enjoyed by its guests and residents, that will respect the environment, and that has already and will continue to provide jobs, opportunities and increased tourism, while also acting as a catalyst for additional investment. The Bertellos’ are truly committed to the project, to Máncora, and to fulfilling their dream of building an exceptional marina oasis on the desert coast of Peru.
