Megayacht owners and charter guests wishing to make the most of cruising southern Italy will have a new marina near Naples to enjoy. Camper & Nicholsons Marinas has teamed with the developers of Marina di Pinetamare, the groundbreaking for which takes place next year.
Marina di Pinetamare is about 28 miles (45 kilometers) north of Naples, within an area of the Domitia Coast that is being redeveloped for an emphasis on luxury tourism. Golf courses and resorts are part of that development, for example. Gruppo Mirabella is the construction company creating the marina. Focused on real estate and resort development and management, Gruppo Mirabella tapped Camper & Nicholsons Marinas to operate and manage Marina di Pinetamare.
When Marina di Pinetamare opens in 2016, it will have 1,200 berths, 36 of which are for megayachts. Even super-size superyachts, to about 394 feet (120 meters), will be able to tie up. For the convenience of yacht owners and guests, Marina di Pinetamare will have a helipad. Of course, there will also be restaurants, bars, and shops, too.
Another good feature: ferry service to several islands. Anyone wishing to use the marina as a base for day trips to nearby Capri or Ischia, or for venturing farther to Sardinia or Sicily, will be able to do so.
Captains and crew will appreciate refueling services on site, plus a full-service yard if needed. Covered dry stack stowage is also planned.
