The brand-new Amsterdam Marina played host to this year’s HISWA Amsterdam in-water boat show, running from September 4 to 9. Although the new marina, situated at the former NDSM shipyard in Amsterdam-North, will be fully operational as of April 1st 2013, all facilities were prepared to host over 300 participating yachts. Amsterdam Marina is the fourth member of “De Jachthavengroep” (Marina group), which also includes Regatta Center Medemblik, Marina Stellendam as well as Marina Schokkerstrand.
Over a hundred reservations
Amsterdam Marina could not have wished for a better start; nearly 26,000 yachties strolled along the sunny, brand-new pontoons. Many boat owners visited the temporary harbour master’s office to make enquiries about a permanent or visitor’s berth. Without any exception there were positive reactions to the fantastic location and the excellent service of the Marina team. During the boat show Amsterdam Marina has booked over a hundred reservations for a permanent berth.
Planning of final stages
Presently the last exhibitors are leaving their temporary berths at Amsterdam Marina. After they have left we resume the realisation of the marina; the remaining pontoons will be put into position, the offices and restaurant building will be realised on the pier in the middle of the marina and the temporary breakwater will be exchanged for a permanent one.
Amsterdam Marina will be able to accommodate 350 yachts on wide, floating pontoons with wooden decks and comfortable finger jetties. The main building will host the harbour master’s office and the HISWA head office. On the ground floor a bar/restaurant will be realised with large terraces and berths all around. In the direct vicinity of the marina space will be made available for yachting-related shops and offices, which will turn the former NDSM wharf into the nautical hotspot of Amsterdam.
