Marina Port Vell (MPV), Barcelona, says it bustles with superyachts with brisk sales of long-term berths on the new quays.

The marina considers it is set to become one of the world’s elite superyacht destinations and a pre-eminent home port in the Mediterranean, since it is enjoying brisk yachting activity now that the much anticipated quays have opened for spring and summer.

Débuting a few weeks ago, Amels and Feadship yachts visited the newly-open 430m Spanish Quay. On a recent sunny afternoon in April two Lürssens graced the Port: at 88m and 124m, these amazing yachts are the epitome of German technical and artistic prowess.

“Whether for home port or a visit to the vibrant Catalan city of Barcelona, Marina Port Vell has berths to 120m for sale and lease and countless yachting activities, day sails, owner, captain and crew amenities,” says Marcel Brekelmans, MPV’s Managing Director.

“It’s important to note that our long-term berth sales are fully underway as ultimately there is limited availability of permanent port space. We’ve completed Spanish Quay, Diposit Quay, Sota Muralla Quay and Pontoons A and B. Those who take berths now will enjoy the final touches to ‘The Gallery – a hub for visiting yachts and crews,” he adds.
