Gibraltar to expand superyacht infrastructure

A new project is currently underway in Gibraltar to improve fuelling facilities at specific yacht berths. This project will further enhance the Roc’s position as a leading port for the supply of tax-free fuel to yachts and superyachts.

When complete, the new initiative will see fuel available at a larger number of berths than at present, reducing waiting times for visiting vessels. The project is just one part of a larger initiative aimed at attracting more superyachts to the island, and encouraging them to stay longer.

It runs alongside several other projects which are seeing great investment in the cause, including government investment into a new 700-berth small boat marina close to the Queensway Quay marina, which, when completed in the autumn of this year, will provide 680m of berthing for superyachts with an 8m depth. Plans for transport improvements to speed up travel from airport to marina via helicopters, cars or taxis, have also been put in place.

Two further marine projects will considerably expand facilities for superyachts interested in home porting in Gibraltar, within the Ocean Village and Marina Bay complex; a new 10-berth superyacht facility for vessels up to 60m, which has been granted outline planning permission. The development is expected to complete in around two years once full planning consent is obtained.

The biggest investment project is, however the recently-announced Bluewater development by Camoren Holdings; a £1.1bn project at the Eastside reclamation site near Catalan Bay, which will include a 70-berth superyacht-only marina for vessels of 150m or larger.
