Algarve marina now in build

PORTUGAL: Further to plans revealed during the ICOMIA World Marinas Conference in Vilamoura last October (see report in Marina World November/December 2023), Vilamoura Marina on the Algarve coast has now begun construction of its new associated marina.

Three pontoons with a total of 68 berths will be installed, equipped with the latest technologies. All berths are specifically designed for large boats of 20 to 40m (66 to 131ft) in order to respond to the fast-growing popularity of boats in this size range, and strengthen the destination’s capacity to attract a high net worth demographic.
Every berth will include multiple features, such as individual waste water pump-out systems, 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.
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.”
“The new marina is also the result of our constant desire to improve the service we provide to our clients,” she added. “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 marina is expected to complete by the end of the year.
