Megayachts get a new hot-spot in Mediterranean in time for the European summer 2011 with new 79 mega yacht berths in Mandalina Marina & Yacht Club.

Croatia’s first mega yacht marina is based deep in Sibenik Bay, 5 NM from the open sea that enables easy and safe access to mega yachts up to 140 meters in length. It is situated in scenic town of Sibenik, between two national parks – Kornati islands and Krka waterfalls in Middle Dalmatia, in the most beautiful Croatia’s cruising ground.

Working with the internationally recognized pontoon producer Marinetek, the investors – NCP Group and Dogus Group - have used best materials and solutions to meet the high environmental standards. The sea depth by the coastline is suitable for the yachts with a max. draft up to 6 meters (19.68 ft.) while the depth by the concrete floating pontoons is deeper than 15 meters (49.21 ft.).

The vicinity of NCP Repair Shipyard specialized in refit, repair and maintenance of yachts up to 75 meters (250 ft) in length, with its envious reference list, is an additional convenience for marina’s clients. NCP Refit also offers 24/7 service facilities in marina and anywhere on the sea, what guarantees complete security for yachts in the Adriatic.

But a high quality infrastructure and facilities are not the only advantage of the collaboration of Croatian and Turkish partnership. Annual berth holders at Mandalina Marina & Yacht Club gain tempting discount and reservation priority benefits at any D Marin Group Marinas. (Didim 50%, Bodrum 10%, Göcek 10% discount).

Croatia boasts some of the world's most scenic cruising grounds.

Facilities available in the marina are: potable water and electricity (16-250 amps), telephone connectivity at in-water slips, full-time professional marina staff, Wi - Fi internet access, first-class restrooms and showers, laundry facilities, parking on the marina ground, video surveillance of the vessels, vast charter options, corporate programs division, gas station, restaurant and grocery store.

MMYC is very pleasant for staying as it is calm during the night. The city of Sibenik – where it is located - is famous for its summer events and cultural attractions including the prominent Cathedral protected by UNESCO, but nearby Vodice and Primošten, on the other hand, are favourable by the tourists searching for entertaining events, parties and concerts.

With the recent modifications to the marina, Sibenik region is destined to become the region’s premier gateway for mega yachts, as it offers convenient access to more than 1200 scenic islands on the Adriatic, as well as presenting an outstanding hub from which to cruise the Eastern Coast of Italy and the Eastern Mediterranean.
