Athens Marina in Greece has joined the Camper & Nicholsons 1782 Club. The club launched in February and is designed to promote a group of independently owned and operated marinas, in partnership with the world’s oldest yachting brand to form a chain of high-end facilities throughout popular and emerging yachting regions worldwide. Camper & Nicholsons was founded in 1782.



“The marina is a completely private enclave compared to other local berthing options, offering yacht owners absolute discretion,” said Kurt Fraser, sales and marketing director for C&N Marinas.



Formerly known as Faliro Marina, the marina is located on Faliro Bay and is a 5-minute drive to the ancient city center and 30 minutes from the international airport. It was constructed in 2004 to accommodate visiting yachts for the Summer Olympic Games in Athens in 2004.It can accommodate up to 130 yachts from 16m to 130m, including 25 berths for yachts up to 35m, 15 berths for yachts up to 130m, and space for a 180m alongside. It also includes a helicopter pad.



1782 Club member marinas will benefit from Camper & Nicholsons’ global marketing reach and brand equity, through participation in a communications programme that targets all segments of the yachting market. Porto Montenegro is the club’s founding member.



The club will eventually include a loyalty and privileges program for owners, captains and crew. Camper & Nicholsons’ existing marinas will participate in cross promotional activities alongside 1782 Club members, including Limassol Marina in Cyprus, Yas Marina in Abu Dhabi, Porto San Rocco in Italy, as well as C&N-owned facilities – Grand Harbour Marina in Malta, Cesme Marina in Turkey, and Port Louis Marina in Grenada.
