AMICO & CO PRESENTS NEW WATERFRONT MARINA
New Genoa marina can host 26 superyachts up to 110m
Amico & Co, the Italian superyacht refit and repair firm, has unveiled its new Waterfront Marina – a centre devoted to hosting superyachts, their crews, owners and both yacht and charter managers in the heart of Genoa. The marina is also home to the on-water part of the Salone Nautico.
“Thanks to this new, high-tech infrastructure with high quality standards and a series of complementary services for crews, managers and owners, we wanted to further enhance what we can offer and confirm the leadership of Genoa and its territory at an international level,” says company chairman Alberto Amico.
Waterfront Marina covers a stretch of water spanning 43,000sq m, with two quays with a complex length of 460m and a newly built 70m structural pontoon. The marina can host 26 vessels up to 110m LOA, guaranteeing the highest quality service and environmental standards: a 4-Megawatt electrical system that can power shore columns of up to 1000 Amps, Wi-Fi cabled internet connection, as well as water supply and black and grey water collection and disposal systems at every berth.
The on-land area spanning over 15,000sq m offers all kinds of services and amenities, from the lounge and meeting area to kitchens, restrooms and a laundry, changing rooms, yoga studio, fully equipped gym and offices. The external area is completed by a fitness zone.
Created by Amico & Co with the objective of responding to the necessity of offering adequate hospitality to superyachts which choose the shipyard for their maintenance works, even outside of their technical stops, Waterfront Marina is a fundamental project for reaching the important objective of further establishing Genoa as a home port for super and mega yachts, rooting quality economic income in the territory that is growing, sustainable and can be perfectly integrated with city life. The new crew facilities are also available to the vessel clients of Amico & Co.
Imagined and designed to be integrated with the Eastern Waterfront areas, object of a major transformation plan – outlined by Architect Renzo Piano on behalf of Genoa Municipality – it completes the seaward Eastern areas of the industrial nautical district of Genoa Port.
