New superyacht marina Roma Marina Yachting celebrates opening in Italy

New superyacht marina Roma Marina Yachting celebrates opening in Italy

Roma Marina Yachting, Italy's newest superyacht marina and the first in Rome's historic port of Civitavecchia, is celebrating its official opening this week.

Set against the backdrop of the ancient Roman Fort Michelangelo is Italy’s newest home to superyachts, Roma Marina Yachting. Rome wasn’t built in a day, nor did its first luxury marina come about quickly. The 2,000-year-old port town of Civitavecchia is now transformed into a superyacht hub with the marina’s arrival, which welcomes the world’s largest yachts along its 230m face dock and 14 superyacht berths. The ancient Fort Michelangelo behind the marina also will be redeveloped to host the reception area and crew amenities.

Roma Marina Yachting had its soft opening this summer, and has welcomed superyachts already, but the marina now marks its official opening, which coincides with a two-day festival celebrating the Mediterranean taking place in Civitavecchia. The programme for the festival includes workshops and focuses on tourism in the area. Speakers will include Italian Minister for Infrastructure and
Transport Maurizio Lupi; Vienna Eleuteri, VSY shipyard's sustainability project manager; Luca Pedol of Nauta Yachts; and Tony Harris, CEO of Boat International Media.

€1.1 million has been spent so far on building the superyacht marina. Future development includes restaurants, shops and more slips. Only a 45-minute drive from Rome and within easy reach of some of the Mediterranean’s best cruising grounds, Roma Marina Yachting is well situated and has been well worth the wait.
