A top class homeport for superyachts since major transformation work was completed at the end of last year, OneOcean Port Vell in Barcelona is set to become the premier city marina in the Mediterranean. The final phase of its transformation started mid-December 2015, and is scheduled for completion by August 2016.
OHL, who worked on the original four-year development of OneOcean Port Vell between 2010 and 2014, is currently working on the eight-month programme of works. The marina presently provides over 150 berths ranging from 5 to 190 metres. The redevelopment of the original Moll Pescadores section of the marina will result in 8 additional berths from 30 to 80m plus access to the world-class marina and yacht facilities.
Chairman of OneOcean, Martin Bellamy said: “The exceptional results achieved in one year after launching OneOcean Port Vell have allowed us to move swiftly to commence the works for the last stage of the marina’s redevelopment. Already at 80% capacity this winter, this expansion enables us to meet the growing demand for berthing superyachts in the Mediterranean and positions Barcelona as the leading superyacht destination with unrivalled marina facilities.”
