Officially opened on June 9, the all-new Stabia Main Port has already become a preferred berthing location for private yachts and charter yachts on the Sorrento Coast, a fabulous Italy yacht vacation destination, positioned close to the Amalfi Coast. Nestled in the center of Castellammare di Stabia, the new superyacht marina resort is strategically positioned only a few minutes from the archeological sites of Pompeii and Stabiae, and provides easy access to Sorrento, Naples & Capri, Ischia, as well as the protected marine area of Punta Campanella.
Umberto Graziuso, President of Stabia Main Port, comments: “Since the inauguration in June we have been overwhelmed at the positive response from the super yacht industry. Charter yacht Cloud 9, MY Ester III and the brand new Feadship MY Symphony are just a few of the yachts that have selected Stabia Main Port in the last month.”
Stabia Main Port has been developed by a small group of local entrepreneurs, in order to dedicate a part of the existing historical marina for use exclusively by vessels measuring over 30m in length, and in particular for the class of megayachts over 100m. “We are very pleased to have created a new option for super yachts. With small artisan shopkeepers and excellent local restaurants and pubs, both guests and crew are enjoying being part of this community, all the while being so close to Pompeii, Sorrento and Capri. In fact, the local community has rallied around this project and is very proud to welcome these beautiful vessels and their international guests and crew to Castellammare di Stabia,” added President Graziuso.
Founded in the 8th century as Stabiae, the city of Castellammare di Stabia features 28 natural water sources and an antique thermal spa. It represents the only location in the area that can host yachts measuring up to 120m in length, also alongside. Moreover, the port offers VIP concierge services for the vessels.
Luisa Del Sorbo, Head of Marketing for the Port, said: “With regards to Stabia Main Port, location is key, but also important is our operational experience and dedication. We understand the needs of the super yachts and everything we have done has been with a keen eye to provide each yacht with the best services for both guests and crew. Over the past month, captains and crew have told me time and again how much they appreciate the opportunity to moor, especially alongside, in the heart of a charming town while being so close to some of the best cruising destinations in Italy.”
