So you´ve now been looking for a marina berth in the Mediterranean for a quite a while…We know how hard it is to find a great marina berth in a good place and which is available…
Choose Your Boat advise you to now consider Barcelona!
Barcelona is a nice city which is easy to travel to:
Besides the fact that Barcelona holds plenty of berths, this beautiful city has much to offer: its dynamism, its lifestyle, its fun atmosphere, and its many museums, art galleries and shops where to stroll on no-sailing days.
– Over 100 daily flights from all over Europe (Amsterdam, Berlin, Brussels, London, Geneva, Paris, Stockholm,…etc)
– High-speed trains connect Barcelona Sants central station to main cities in Southern Europe
– European motorways connect Barcelona also easily
Sailing from Barcelona offers many options:
Rig up for pleasant one-day sailing in sunny-weather, all year-round… or sign up for one of the many regattas held by numerous
Barcelona vicinity yacht clubs. Longer trips 40 miles (75 km), will take you up-coast to Costa Brava (compares with Corsica beautywise), or to the splendid Balearic Islands: Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza, Formentera, some 110 miles (200 km) away.
Barcelona and vicinity (20 miles around) is home to 10 marinas, with 8.000 berth occupancy of which 15% are currently available…that´s 1 200 berths available!
Each port bears its own characteristics so you are certain to find the one that matches your needs. Port Vell, in the city-center specializes in very large yachts (for up to 390’).
Pricewise, Barcelona rentals level with the French Mediterranean average: starting at € 4,000/annual for a 39´x 13’ berth. The“Small Ads” market is very active and offers great prices. Concession agreements may result even cheaper: a 39’ x 13’ 20-year berth may cost about € 23,000 + monthly fee 130-180 € according to location. (10 years to breakeven). Again, the classified market offers very good opportunities.
