FIVE-YEAR BERTH CONTRACTS AT PORTOMIRABELLO

PortoMirabello has announced that a limited number of superyacht berths are now to be made available for lease contract terms as short as five years, whereas standard terms are at least 15 years. The La Spezia-based facility, which opened in 2010 after a two-year EUR 130 million build, has 100 berths designed for superyachts from 30-135m.

Alessandro Menozzi, CEO of PortoMirabello, says the move is in response to superyacht market intelligence. “At present there are over 400 superyachts with an average length of 47m either on order or in build due for delivery by 2020. More than 80 of those are over 70m in length. How many marinas or ports can host superyachts of this size?”

“PortoMirabello has always been sensitive to the market and its continuous evolution, aimed at the satisfaction of new clients and their needs. Now, for a limited number of berths only, we are offering mooring contracts for berths from 30-135m, for short periods starting from just five years.”

The harbour lies tucked away in the north-west corner of the Gulf of La Spezia, also known as the Gulf of Poets, with further shelter offered by a 620m breakwater. Well situated for destinations such as Porto Venere, Cinque Terre and Portofino, its position in the northern Tyrrhenian Sea puts it within a few hours’ sailing of the Riviera, Corsica and Sardinia.

Burgess has four berths available for sale in PortoMirabello:

Berth 011 (Length 130m, 15-year lease)

Berth 06 (Length 80m, 15-year lease)

Berth N2 (Length 50m, 15-year lease)

Berth N4 (Length 50m, 15-year lease)
