How the new marina will look

Construction of “new Vilamoura Marina” begins

Construction of the new Vilamoura Marina is due to be completed before end of 2024

Construction of a “new Vilamoura Marina” has begun today, the resort’s master developer Vilamoura World has announced.

The project, which will involve expanding the current marina to welcome larger boats, features three new pontoons with 68 mooring berths, all equipped with the “latest technology”.

All 68 mooring berths will be intended for large vessels, ranging between 20 and 40 meters, in order to “respond to the rapidly growing trend in this segment and to strengthen the destination’s capacity to attract increasingly high-value customers,” Vilamoura World says.

“Each mooring berth will have multiple solutions to promote comfort and sustainability. This includes individual pump-out systems for all vessels, allowing the collection of wastewater, charging points for electric boats, and systems for monitoring and remote management of water and electricity consumption,” it adds.

Studies are also underway for the implementation of desalination systems and photovoltaic energy generation for efficient water and electricity supply, the developer explains.

Vilamoura World Administrator, Isolete Correia, has highlighted the importance that the new marina will have in attracting larger vessels to the Algarve. 

“The new marina also arises from the constant desire to improve the service we provide to our customers, as they are the true focus of this project and whom we work for daily, aiming to offer them an increasingly better and even more extraordinary experience in Vilamoura,” Isolete Correia said.

The construction of the new marina is expected to be completed by the end of 2024, Vilamoura World adds.
