In another context, in the millennial port of Trapani, we have begun renovation work on the Shipyard that will become the third largest in the Mediterranean with the possibility of maintaining and storing large yachts up to 150 meters in length.” Today, the yachtsman in addition to knowing the quality of dock services offered why should he choose marinas in the

It is an offer that only we in the Mediterraneancan make.”

Established in late 2012, the
is now the leading marina network in the Mediterranean, with 6,000 berths in 14 operating ports. In addition to managing marinas already operating or under construction, it aims to identify new sites for continued expansion, expansion, and improvement operations. Managing ports for nautical tourism directly, or in partnership with local and private entities, Marinedi expands services and potential of already active port facilities and develops projects for the creation of new ones.
