Between 2016 and 2017, the shipyards MB92 and Varador 2000 and the marinas OneOcean Port Vell, Marina Vela and Mataró Marina Barcelona will have invested up to 92.3 million euros in their facilities. Their aim is to expand their capacity and the services destined to the superyachts, which inject to the local economy about 2 million euros per year per boat.

The five facilities are part of Barcelona Cluster Nautic, an 84-member local marine industry trade association. One of its focuses is to attract superyachts to Barcelona ​​as a base for Mediterranean cruises as well as repairs and maintenance. 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.
