Superyacht Marina opens in southern Spain

A major boost for the leisure boating industry in southern Spain has arrived with the opening of Alcaidesa Marina near Gibraltar in southern Spain.
The 624 Marina, built by Alcaidesa, the Spanish company in which Costain holds an equal stake with Santander Bank subsidiary Banesto, opened for business this summer.
The facility in La Linea de la Concepción, immediately adjacent to Gibraltar, can accept yachts up to 50 metres overall and offers the provision of broadband at each of the berths, together with fresh water and power connections.
Additionally, the Marina has been constructed to allow greater than normal width at each berth to cater for the increasing beams of modern leisure craft.
Good transport links form part of the attraction of the new facility: “The exit from Gibraltar Airport is right on the border and a 10-minute walk from the Marina,” comments Costain’s Director, Group Property, Martin Burdes.
Additionally, the international airports of Malaga and Jerez are just an hour’s car journey away.
