Do you want to know where the very rich owners moor their superboats? Where to meet Oceanco’s mammoth Black Pearl, the world’s largest sailboat (106 meters, owner Russian tycoon Oleg Burlakov)? Or one of these famous giants of the sea? We are helped by a ranking compiled by Engel & Völkers Yachting that contains the ten most expensive and prestigious marinas in the Mediterranean.

José San Banus, Marbella’s exclusive marina, leads the ranking of the top 10 most expensive berths in Europe in 2019. The mooring fee on the Costa del Sol increased by 20 percent from the previous year. Up to a total of 4,289 euros per day. The numbers were published in a current ranking produced by Engel & Völkers Yachting. The survey data are based on base rates for mooring a 55-meter yacht in the high season.

Porto Cervo records the largest price increase

“Compared to 2017, daily mooring rates for a 55-meter yacht have increased in almost all ten locations in the ranking,” said Anissa Mediouni, CEO of Engel & Völkers Yachting. The Marina in Porto Cervo, on the northern coast of Sardinia near Olbia, saw the highest price increase-24 percent to 3,176 euros per day.

This brings Porto Cervo to third place in this year’s ranking of Europe’s most exclusive marinas. In second place is Ibiza Magna, which was at the top of last year’s ranking, with a mooring fee of 4,084 euros per day.

Capri, Portofino, Saint-Tropez: base rates between 2,000 and 3,000 euros

The Italian ports of Capri and Portofino are in the middle of the rankings, in fourth and fifth place, respectively. For those wishing to moor their yacht in Capri’s Marina Grande, quotes are 3,000 euros per day. Portofino Marina on the Italian Riviera reaches a daily price of 2,398 euros as in 2018. At 2,211 euros per day, the Port of Saint-Tropez on the French Riviera comes in sixth place in the ranking.

Another French port, Marina Port Vauban on the Antibes coast, ranks seventh. The largest port on the French Riviera offers space for more than 1,600 yachts, including 19 superyachts. It pays a daily rate of 2,045 euros. The Limassol marina in Cyprus is ranked eighth with a daily rate of 1,533 euros. A spot at theACI Marina Split on the Croatian coast of Dalmatia costs 1,423 euros per day, securing the port’s ninth-place ranking. Port Hercule in Monte-Carlo, Monaco, rounds out the ranking in 10th place with a daily rate of 1,128 euros.
