GLOBAL REVIEW 2017 A year of firsts Over the course of 2017, Europe took centre-stage in terms of new marinas, expansions and refurbishment, North America continued both to build and to consolidate, and countries in Southeast Asia launched world-class marinas and superyacht docks. Charlotte Niemiec selects some highlights. Developments were busy across Europe and, in the UK, seemingly at an all-time high. In London, the refurbishment of all three basins at St Katharine Docks completed at the beginning of the year, giving them a “new lease of life”. The Poralu docks can now accommodate a wider range of boat sizes up to 40m (131ft). Meanwhile, a new 146-berth marina opened within the Harleyford Estate on the River Thames - a site regarded as one of the most beautiful private country estates in the south of England - and Tingdene Marinas completed a £1 million investment in new pontoons and shoreside facilities at Racecourse Marina in Windsor, expanding capacity by 50% to 262 berths. Walcon Marine and Rolec Services worked on the projects. Outside of London, Marina Projects began reconfiguration and extension of Windermere Quays Marina on Lake Windermere in Cumbria. Phase one saw the marina reconfigured from 180 to 260 berths (see p. 35 for more). Premier Marinas announced it had earmarked £7.5 million for the start of a £75 million project to redevelop Noss on Dart Marina. The project will commence with the rebuild and expansion of the marina to include 232 berths, a new boatyard, hard standing for up to 100 boats and a drystack. The company will also reconfigure a third of the mooring system at Port Solent, Portsmouth, for boats up to 33m 108(ft). Much further north, in Scotland, a £2.5 million transit berthing facility opened in Oban. It comprises 15 finger berth pontoons, three hammer heads and 12 fully-serviced floating concrete breakwaters. The project was managed and delivered by Gael Force Marinas and Pontoons, which also installed 40 berths at James Watt Dock Marina in Greenock as part of an expansion and To become the largest marina in the Middle East and North Africa region, Dubai Harbour will have a 1,400 berth marina. refurbishment programme currently in progress by the marina’s newly appointed long-term operator Marina Projects. A new “marina of true excellence” was announced for Monaco. This will have over 170 berths for vessels of 6.5 to 60m (21 to 197ft), 400 car parking spaces, a maintenance yard and around 3,800m² (40,903ft²) of commercial space. Landside work includes traditional nautical and tourist services, shops, restaurants, green spaces and a beach. As Monaco marinas currently turn away between 20 and 30 superyachts every day, the new development is set to offer additional and much needed mooring opportunities. In Italy, work completed on the new Capo d’Orlando marina in Sicily, offering 552 berths for boats up to 40m (131ft) in length. The marina is formed of two large Ingemar piers connected to the wharf and a series of mooring fingers and has Plus Marine dockside equipment. Another iconic marina - Marina d’Arechi - also completed; and ranks as one of the most impressive tourist facilities ever built in the Campania region. It has an impressive sweeping 1.2km (0.7mi) breakwater, arched restaurant buildings and 1,000 berths, 80 of which are for superyachts of 25 to 100m (82 to 328ft). The marina is complemented by an extensive boatyard, shops, bars and restaurants along a 3,000m (8,842ft) long quayside promenade whose central buildings feature upper storey space for a yacht club and restaurant likely to open in January 2018. A further 1,000 berths Bear Lake State Park Marina in Garden City, Utah, USA boosted slips to 380 with completion of a second phase. - January/February 2018 13
