Mallorca’s Port Andratx expansion underway

Yachting Boating World: Expansion works are now underway at Port Andratx in Mallorca. The seven new superyacht berths will help meet growing demand from those who regularly visit the southwest Mallorca resort.

 

Lorenzo Vila, director of easyboats, said; “Not only is our business based in Port Andratx, but we were born and raised here, so we have seen the transformation from humble fishing village to millionaires’, and billionaires’, playground.

“While the fishing industry still very much exists, the Port’s image is now very upscale with high-end restaurants, eight-figure-price-tag villas and superyachts on the scene. These new berths, which range between 26 and 30 metres, are much-needed and we’ve already reserved one for an easyboats client – who happens to be a billionaire from northern Europe.”

At a budget of almost two million euros, the seven-berth expansion also adds 34 new car parking spaces, with the extended quay having the spinoff benefit of reducing the swell coming into the Port for other marina users.

The area around Port Andratx is considered one of the top ten hotspots in Spain, having recently being placed in third position by specialist property valuation consultancy Tinsa. Andratx’s property values were said to average €2,422 per square metre, just behind the areas of Sitges and Calvia.

The Balearic Government Port Authority approved the expansion works in December 2014.
