Vilanova Grand Marina – Barcelona offers a comprehensive service of dry docking and final preparation of yachts, which range from a simple inspection, hull cleaning and antifouling application to a complete refit. As well as having its own personnel to carry out these works, the marina employs some of the best professionals specialised in repair & refit of yachts. The first phase of the technical area, which has been operational since the beginning of this year, is now working at full capacity and has already exceeded the company’s expectations.
The new workshop area, currently under construction, will be operational at the end of June on renting bases. Theses workshops will be used to carry out all the usual activities of a shipyard such as mechanic repairs, carpentry, paint works, etc. Within the next few weeks, the marina expects to sign agreements with widely experienced professionals in order to increase the array of services offered, always ensuring an excellent value for money.
The first phase of the technical area occupies an area of over 8,000 sq m and has a 200-tonne travel hoist built by the Italian company Cimolai S.P.A. As well as dry docking, paint works, repair and refit, the new shipyard will launch in September a boat storage promotional campaign during next winter season for all users of the marina and any other harbour along the Catalan coast.
Once completed, the technical area of Vilanova Grand Marina – Barcelona in Spain will occupy a total surface of 30,000sq m and will feature two painting sheds, a 300-metre waiting dock and an 800-tonne travel hoist, which will allow all different types of repair & refit projects to be carried out.
Vilanova Grand Marina – Barcelona is the first marina exclusively conceived and designed for superyachts in the Mediterranean. Since it opened in April 2009, it has rapidly earned the recognition and support of the industry and is now considered an international benchmark thanks to its specialisation, strategic location and outstanding facilities and services.

It integrates a port infrastructure and a technical area for specialist repair and refitting of large boats. Its location, in the inner basin of Vilanova’s harbour, surrounded by peaceful, clean waters, just 20 minutes drive from Barcelona International Airport, Spain represents an important strategic value for owners and captains.
