Varadero Port Denia to open superyacht marina in 2012

Built around an existing commercial dock, it will accommodate boats between 40m-65m in length
The superyacht maintenance and refit shipyard, Varadero Port Denia (VPD), located inside Denia’s harbour, south of Valencia, Spain is currently converting an existing commercial dock and surrounding area into a marina intended to accommodate boats between 40m-65m (131ft-213ft) in length and up to 6m (20ft) in draft.
The new marina complements the yard’s slipways and dry dock area, capable of accommodating vessels of up to 80m. It is primarily planned for clients willing to undertake some maintenance or refit work before or after their transit between the Mediterranean and the Caribbean, and as an alternative to a dry dock stay.
With the new facilities, Port Denia will be competing directly with Barcelona, Palma and Cartagena, the only points of call in this part of the Mediterranean that can offer a similar combination of marina and refit yard services.
Albert Morell, VPD’s managing director, is confident that the downward trend of the Euro against the dollar that started at the end of August, will help the company deal with American competition that has benefited from months of a relatively cheap currency.
VPD was established in 1940 and has historically been active in the construction and repair of fishing and commercial vessels. The yard relocated to its current premises in 2009.
