Italy’s Genova Marina has attained ‘MaRINA Excellence’ certification from RINA, the Italian classification society, reaching a maximum score.

The accolade was due to many strengths, including a 15m draft that allows boats of any size to moor and efficient hospitality desk services, restaurants, hotels and shops.

“We are very proud of this certification, which represents an important goal, and helps us to keep pursuing excellence, quality services and constantly investing in the structure,” says Giuseppe Pappalardo, CEO of Marina Genova’s management firm, SSP.

“The international situation in which Marina Genova operates, imposes high standards, and is without a doubt a major incentive to do more always better,” he adds.

Marina Genova offers more than 500 berths, of which 100 are for supyeryachts up to 130m, and is home to the widest offering of refit and repair yards in the Med. Located just 10 minutes from the town centre and five minutes to Genoa International Airport, the facility is strategically positioned in the middle of the Portofino – Portocervo – Saint Tropez triangle.
