Construction of the all-new Porto Albania project is expected to start this month, following the granting of the relevant government and other permits. The country’s first international standard marina will feature over 720 berths, including moorings for superyachts measuring up to 75m in length.
Believed to have great location benefits between the increasingly popular sailing routes of Croatia and Montenegro and the established tourist destinations of Greece and Italy, the marina is part of a broad development project, which will also include hotels, residential villas, commercial outlets including shops, restaurants and cafés, golf, spa and other sports facilities. The project is led by the Swiss investment and project management company FINSEC Ltd Zug and its Albanian subsidiary FINSEC Port SHA Tirana, who put together an international multi-disciplinary team to create a truly unique destination in the region.
FINSEC board member, Peter Ruckstuhl, commented: “The marina is the first phase in our future investment development plan. This foresees an extension over 170 hectares of land where hotel resorts, spa, golf, villas and other facilities will be built.”
