In the charming Spanish town of Denia, the Port Denia shipyard and marina provide a safe, secure, full-service superyacht hideaway for those looking to explore Spain’s sublime east coast.
Just 45 miles from the bustling island of Ibiza and close to two international airports, it’s not hard to see the allure of Denia’s prime location. This cosmopolitan Spanish city serves as a convenient stopover point for yachts heading to or from the Mediterranean, and is able to offer visitors a whole range of maintenance work before moving on to their next destination.
Offering stern berths at up to 65 meters LOA and a side berth of 138 meters, Port Denia is truly ‘superyacht ready’. Services include 1250 amps of shore power, as well as critical in-water refit and maintenance work paving the way for the marina’s “technical” status. Meanwhile, 24-hour security and the convenient location of the marina next to the local police station ensure guests have complete peace of mind about the safety of their vessel.
The marina, originally built to complement the superyacht shipyard, has now grown into a popular tourist destination in its own right. However, if you want to do maintenance work, the first-class equipment and facilities of the adjoining shipyard are the real draw here. This overhaul, maintenance and repainting facility is capable of servicing yachts up to 1200 GT and is equipped with two 80 meter slipways, a 150 GT travel lift and a large dry dock and specialized workshops.
Although moored in Port Denia, the attractions of the local town are sure to please both the guests and the crew. Celebrity chef Quique Dacosta’s namesake restaurant, serving local ingredients and three Michelin stars, is a popular attraction that brings the world’s superyacht elite to this historic Spanish town. Creative UNESCO City of Gastronomy with Blue Flag beaches on the Costa Blanca, Denia offers a calming respite from the liveliest destinations in the Mediterranean, while still offering all the beauty and charm.
Enjoy an afternoon of golf at La Sella, or a relaxing massage and light lunch at the adjoining 5 * Marriott hotel. Indulge in the local cuisine and vibrant nightlife, or enjoy the breathtaking views atop Montgó Mountain. Whatever you’re looking for, Denia’s hidden gem really has something for everyone.
