The Ten Most Exclusive Marinas In Europe
The rule of thumb of superyacht ownership is that your mooring and management fees usually add up to around a tenth of the yacht's value.
But at these millionaire marinas, expect to add a few more percentage points to that. According to an annual ranking by Engel & Völkers Yachting, this year's most expensive marina in Europe, Marbella's Puerto Banus, charges an eye-watering €4,289 for a 24 hour mooring for a 55 metre yacht.
That's a 20 percent increase on last year's fee of €3,545.
Ibiza Magna Marina on Spain's Balearic Archipelago, falls back into 2nd spot this year, after being the most expensive marina in Europe for the last three years. Now a day's mooring comes in at €4,084, an increase of 2 percent.
“Compared to 2017, the daily mooring fees for a 55-metre yacht have increased in almost all ten locations featured in the ranking,” said Anissa Mediouni, CEO of Engel & Völkers Yachting.
“European marinas remain in great demand. Particularly spectacular locations and a good infrastructure with shops, restaurants and other amenities are really driving prices even higher in the luxury segment,” she said.
The Marina di Porto Cervo on the northern coast of Sardinia near Olbia saw the highest rise in price – by 24 percent to €3,176 per day. This takes Porto Cervo up into third place in this year’s ranking of Europe’s most exclusive marinas. At fifth place the Marina di Portofino on the Italian Riviera has not increased its prices, at €2,398, nor has the Limassol Marina on Cyprus (pictured), ranked in eighth place with a daily rate of €1,533.
