Record number of superyachts in Gibraltar

This weekend a record number of superyachts docked at local berths, with 20 vessels calling in Gibraltar.

A Government spokesman said that at one point there were 19 yachts at the Mid Harbours Marina, the commercial harbour, a private marina or in the anchorage.

“The new berths at Mid Harbours, improved infrastructure, competitively priced fuel, and a concerted marketing effort in this niche sector are clearly placing Gibraltar firmly on the superyacht map,” said CEO and Captain of the Port Bob Sanguinetti.

Minister for Maritime Affairs Gilbert Licudi added that he was delighted the Port was gaining a higher profile across the superyacht community.

“With crew changes, re-provisioning, bunkering and the wide range of attractions available to these discerning visitors, it is good to see so many of these impressive looking vessels making use of the facilities on offer,” he said.

“The recent addition of over 500m of deep water berths at Mid Harbours has been instrumental in allowing the GPA to raise its game even further.”
