Partnership boosts nautical tourism

ALBANIA: Premium marina group D-Marin has announced a partnership agreement with Vlora Marina, destined to become the first world-class marina in Albania. The move is believed to mark an important step in the development of the country’s nautical tourism.

Vlora Marina joins D-Marin’s existing portfolio of 23 marinas across the Mediterranean and Gulf regions and marks the operator’s continuously expanding presence in another new country, its ninth to date. The partnership will give customers travelling from D-Marin marinas in nearby Croatia and Corfu access to premium services in Albania.
Vlora Marina, currently under construction in Vlorë – Albania’s third largest city – will offer 438 berths for year-round mooring for vessels up to 50m (164ft) in length, providing much-anticipated marina facilities to the country’s 426km (265mi) coastline.
Complementing the marina itself are plans for an expansive promenade, weaving along the 2km (1.2mi) beach that runs beside the marina. The promenade will feature restaurants and bars, a signature spa, and high-end retail and entertainment facilities. Further ahead, plans could include apartments and 5-star hotels.
Gyozo Lantos, D-Marin director of mergers and acquisitions, described the strategic partnership as an exciting step into a new market. “Customers will be able to enjoy the premium D-Marin experience at Vlora Marina upon completion of the project in early 2027,” he said.
