Port d’Andratx is getting seven new superyacht berths ranging in size from 26m to 30m as part of a new Mallorca marina expansion project

The superyacht influx to Mallorca looks set to continue, with the Balearic island’s Port d’Andratx announcing a €2m expansion project.

Works are now underway at the Mallorca marina after receiving approval from the Balearic Government Port Authority back in December 2014.

Once completed, the expanded marina will have seven new superyacht moorings measuring from 26m to 30m in length.

What’s more, additional parking for up to 34 cars will be added to the popular Mallorca marina.

Lorenzo Vila, director of local charter firm easyboats, said: “We have seen the transformation from humble fishing village to millionaires’, and billionaires’, playground.

“The port’s image is now very upscale with high-end restaurants, eight-figure-price-tag villas and superyachts on the scene,” he added. “These new berths are much-needed.”

Situated on the west coast of Mallorca, Port d’Andratx (pictured above) is one of the largest marinas on the island with more than 600 berths and a minimum depth of 2m.
