Expansion underway at Port d'Andratx in Mallorca

Expansion underway at Port d'Andratx in Mallorca

Port d'Andratx in Mallorca, Spain is undergoing an expansion to help meet a growing demand for superyacht berths in the area. Seven new berths for yachts more than 26 metres will be created in the marina, which was traditionally a fishing port.

The Balearic Government Port Authority initially approved the project, which is estimated to have a budget of more than two million euros, in December 2014. As well as the superyacht berths, 34 new car parking spaces will be created and it is hoped that the extended quay will also reduce the swell coming into the port for other marina users.

The development is thought to be reflective of Port d'Andratx’s transformation into a luxury destination.

Lorenzo Vila, director of yacht charter company easyboats said, “Not only is our business based in Port d'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.”

Although Port d'Andrax is smaller than its nearby neighbour Porto Adriano it has always been a popular destination for private yachts and luxury yacht charters in the Balearics. It has some of the best waterfront restaurants in the Balearics and is a great starting point for exploring Mallorca’s stunning coastline.

If you are considering visiting the area, don’t miss out on the guide to nine days in the Balearics on a superyacht.
