A new Italian superyacht marina, Marina del Gargano in Manfredonia, Puglia will be operated by the MDL Marinas, Europe’s largest marina operator. This amazing news will see the fabulous marina become part of MDL’s Mediterranean network – providing the yachtsmen in Italy with the outstanding customer service experience.
MDL Marinas was selected to operate the marina due to its high standard of marina operations and experience of running international marinas, including its Spanish marina, Sant Carles, another successful marina from MDL’s Mediterranean network, which was opened in 2008. The marina group has won a number of international contracts over the past year – whilst continuing to delivering consistent and solid business in its home market – despite the economic downturn.
Marina del Gargano, which will open in March 2013, will offer 747 berths for yachts ranging from 8-60 metres, as well as a number of on-site facilities and services, including 24-hour security, covered private car parking, concierge service, a children’s play area, bicycle hire, solarium, and a number of on-site lounges and restaurants. A swimming pool will also be opening later next year. Puglia is renowned for its sun-drenched landscapes and delicious food as well as for having some of Italy’s most beautiful coastline.
Jon Eads, Chief Operating Officer at MDL Marinas, commented: “We are delighted to have been selected to operate Marina del Gargano – it’s very exciting news for us and our team is looking forward to putting the wheels in motion for our official opening next year. Commencing on the 1st June 2012 MDL will be handling all elements of business planning, service delivery, training, operations, security, marketing and berth sales. We will have a mix of local and International MDL team members at the marina and are looking forward to welcoming new and existing MDL berth holders to enjoy the marina in coming years.”
MDL’s consultancy division has won a number of recent contracts – providing specialist business advice and solutions to clients worldwide. The consultancy offers services and advice on all aspects of marina and waterfront property development and aims to create vibrant and profitable leisure destinations with long-term commercial viability, whether for MDL or other international partners. MDL has demonstrated it can create successful partnership with overseas marina owners and operators and exciting joint ventures with developers – including the stunning new £25 million pound waterside hotel at Ocean Village, Southampton that was recently approved.
