Yacht hire in Croatia has been given a boost with news of 79 new berths for ‘mega yachts’ in Mandalina Marina & Yacht Club.
The first mega yacht marina for Croatia, based five nautical miles from the open sea in Sibenik Bay, will allow pleasure boaters and holidaymakers access to yachts up to 460ft in length.
The scenic town of Sibenik is situated between two national parks in the country, the Kornati islands and Krka waterfalls in Middle Dalmatia. The region is envisaged as a premier gateway for yachts, offering convenient access to more than 1,200 islands in the Adriatic region, as well as forming an outstanding hub for cruising the Italian coast and eastern Med.
Pontoon producers Marinetek worked with investors NCP Group and Dogus Group to meet high environmental as well as aesthetic standards with the project. With a coastline sea depth suitable for yachts with a maximum draft of 20ft, the depth next to the floating concrete pontoons reaches just under 50ft.
Portable water and electricity is available at the marina, as well as telephone connectivity through in-water slips and Wi-Fi internet access, all overseen by full-time staff based at the waterside – so there’s every luxury available for those seeking a sailing holiday in Croatia.
People keen on sailing and watersports holidays may be interested to learn that more boats and exhibitors have been promised at this year’s Yacht and Brokerage Show in Miami. After the success of the London Boat Show at London’s Excel, organisers on the other side of the Atlantic are hoping for a similar jump in attendance.
