Vilamoura, Portugal, 23rd January 2024 – Today, Vilamoura announces the construction of a new marina at the development on the Algarve coast.
Three pontoons with 68 berths will be installed, equipped with the latest technologies to provide first-class facilities, user comfort and environmental sustainability. All 68 berths will be specifically designed for large boats, between 20 and 40 metres, in order to respond to the fast-growing trend in this sector and to strengthen the destination’s capacity to attract a high net-worth demographic.
Each berth will include multiple features such as individual waste-water pump-out systems for all the boats, charging points for electric boats and systems for remote monitoring and management of water and electricity consumption. Work is also underway to explore the implementation of desalination systems and photovoltaic energy generation for efficient water and electricity supply.
Isolete Correia, Director of Vilamoura World, commented: “This new marina in Vilamoura really sets the destination apart and responds to the growing needs within the market in relation to large boats, which currently pass this part of the coast.”
She added: “The new Marina is also the result of our constant desire to improve the service we provide to our clients. These clients and those that visit and stay in Vilamoura are the real focus of this project and are the ones we work for on a daily basis to provide them with an ever better and more extraordinary experience.”
Construction of the New Marina began today and is expected to be completed by 2024.
