Gibraltar has now firmly established itself with world class port and marina facilities


ROCK STAR I


t is well known that Gibraltar is a bustling commercial centre and with approximately 60,000 vessels transiting the Strait of


Gibraltar each year, the Rock has developed into a major bunkering port – the largest in the Mediterranean, also offering a wide range of other shipping services. Whilst the focus has predominantly been within the bunkering market, following the opening of the Mid Harbour Marina in April 2016, Gibraltar is rapidly gaining a higher profile across the superyacht community as a ‘destination of choice’ rather than one of necessity. The new berths at Mid Harbours offers improved infrastructure and can accommodate the biggest superyachts in the world with over 500m of deep water berthing space available. Facilities for crew changes, re-provisioning,


bunkering and


the wide range of excellent ship service companies are on offer to visiting yachts. Spare parts and provisions are handled by professional and committed shipping agents and there are first-class medical facilities, chandleries and yacht brokerage services also available.


Gibraltar has lots to offer to the discerning visitors, with the city enjoying excellent climate and the range of year-round cruising attractions to be found in the western Mediterranean. A superb range of restaurants, bars and entertainment are available locally, and the Rock is steeped in


military and natural history. Further afield, some of the best golf courses in Spain are within a short 30 minute drive from Gibraltar.


Horse riding, kite surfing and


lots of other leisure activities are also easily accessible in the hinterland.


Commodore Bob Sanguinetti, CEO and Captain of the Port commented, “Gibraltar provides a service and support network that would grace many larger superyacht ports, with the distinctive British atmosphere in a Mediterranean port as an added attraction and there is a real buzz about Gibraltar within the yachting community, both locally and internationally.” He added, “we have seen a three-fold increase in superyacht nights since the new marina berths became available, with almost 40% of superyachts staying in Gibraltar at least one night, clearly a sign that Gibraltar is now on the minds of yacht masters when planning their trips.”


There are also real financial advantages to basing a yacht in Gibraltar. Further information on yacht facilities in Gibraltar and the benefits of registering a yacht under the Gibraltar flag can be found on the Port website: www.gibraltarport.com.


In an effort to keep Gibraltar in the minds of yachting masters, Gibraltar Port is actively engaged in marketing its new


berthing facilities and is currently working closely with the recently formed Gibraltar Yachting Business Development Association (GYBDA), Gibraltar’s local yachting forum. Richard Felipes, one of the founders of the Association, stated that “the aim of GYBDA is to enhance the competitiveness and reputation of Gibraltar as an international maritime centre, working in unison with the local industry and authorities. It is also our aim to further develop the Yachting and Superyacht sector in Gibraltar by creating the right business conditions for its success.”


Both Gibraltar Port and the GYDBA will be participating at upcoming superyacht events including the Monaco Yacht Show as part of their joint campaign to raise Gibraltar’s profile further with the goal of making it a ‘superyacht destination of choice’.
