Marina di Loano in Italy unveils megayacht area for up to 250 feet

Marina di Loano in Italy opened a new area for megayachts 180-250 feet (55-77m). With the new mooring plan the marina has more than 800 berths for boats between 6-25m and 32 berths for yachts up to 250 feet (77m), of which seven are in the megayacht area.



“Our aim was to create a dedicated area on floating pontoons that on one hand would assure the strength and efficiency of a fixed pier and that on the other would offer the flexibility of a floating dock,” said Marco Cornacchia, director of Marina di Loano.



“This was a challenge from a design point of view as we wanted to make sure that the walkways would aesthetically fit in with the existing curving fixed pier: the floating quay is 122 metres long and 3.5 metres wide. Finally we had to take into account the significant size of the yachts we were going to be accommodating and the interaction with the three finger pontoons. These are up to 77 metres long and 2.8 metres wide and are anchored to a floating dock, which also has the function of service pier.”



The mooring system is anchored by 24 steel poles, 14m high and 810mm wide, that have been driven into the harbour bed up to half their length. Interprogetti and Bellingham Marine spearheaded the design and construction.
