The five facilities are part of Barcelona Cluster Nautic, an 84-member local marine industry trade association.

Marinas of the Barcelona’s metropolitan area can accommodate 300 large yachts.

The largest investment is being made by MB92, a 76,000-square-meter shipyard in the Port of Barcelona. The company is investing 45 million euros in a new 4,000-ton lift to haul boats up to 105m.
