MARINA FOCUS Ana Marina to open as nautical hub in Vietnam Ana Marina in Nha Trang on the south east coast of Vietnam, scheduled to open in the first quarter of next year, will be the country’s first full service marina and yacht club. It is being developed not only to offer berths to locals and visitors and provide a new luxury destination for superyachts, but also to establish a nautical lifestyle hub. Nha Trang is strategically located between Southeast Asia and Northern Asia, connecting with Hong Kong, Sanya, Singapore, the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and more. The vision of the marina owner, Mr Dang Bao Hieu, is for the development to ‘pioneer’ the maritime and yachting tourism industry and elevate the standards and quality of tourism in an already popular coastal resort city. The developer, Ana Marina Nha Trang Joint Stock Company, a member of Focus Vietnam Holdings – a professional developer in the Vietnamese travel and leisure industry – turned to UK-based Camper & Nicholsons Marinas (C&NM) to provide the project feasibility and concept design; the development period design; general support services; commissioning; and operations and management support. With the help of other well-known consultants and engineers, including UK-based Marina Solutions International, the developers amassed information from extensive hydrological and bathymetric studies, precise surveys and severe weather implication studies. The result is a marina design that meets strict international standards and has an expected lifespan of at least 50 years. Building the marina Ultimately planned to offer sheltered berthing for up to 220 vessels in two phases, Ana Marina will open early next year with 100 berths and the ability to accommodate vessels up to 40m (131ft) in length. Some extra wide berths for catamarans are in the mix. Marinetek of Finland supplied all pontoon infrastructure for the first phase earlier this year direct from its factory site in Johor Bahru in Malaysia. A mix of seven different pontoon types are being utilised, including Super Yacht pontoons, for the docks, fuel dock and breakwaters. Plus Marine of Italy is supplying and installing HDPE Smart series pedestals with 16-250 Amp range, a Smart Cloud remote metering system, all piping and cabling, portable fire pumps and safety lighting. A Flovac vacuum wastewater system is also being fitted. Large yachts will pump wastewater and bilge water into a specially designed and sized collection chamber. Smaller vessels will have access to pump-out pedestals, positioned at strategic points on the floating pontoons, with connection points for hoses. The entire system is fully monitored and managed from a central command centre. Landside development is equally comprehensive and includes: an atrium as a central meeting place and captainerie; restaurants and club members’ lounge; swimming pool and children’s playground; yacht club bar and ballroom; gym and spa; sales offices; and boatyard with a 100 ton mobile boat hoist, slipway, drystack and workshops. Customer base The marina is expecting to welcome a mix of local and overseas customers in a ratio of around 30:70 for the next five years. Around 30% of the ultimate 220 berths will be designated for superyachts. Superyachts can currently anchor in sheltered bays in the area. Security is of no serious concern but full systems including CCTV, gate monitoring and regular dock patrols are in place. Although access to the marina is restricted to boat owners, club membership is available to local and overseas guests and the general - November/December 2019 27
