Combarro marina to expand berthing capacity

The marina in Combarro, a village in Spain’s north-western part, located on the Atlantic Ocean shore, is to be expanded with the aim to provide berths for larger craft, according to Combarromar, the company that serves as the marina’s operator.

Under the plan, by 2020, the berthing capacity of the facility in Combarro is to be raised from 334 to 368 berths for craft fitted with a length of between 6 and 24 metres (20 and 79 ft), as reported by local news site Pontevedraviva.com. In addition to this, Combarromar is planning to attract larger numbers of seafarers by opening new retail outlets and restaurants, as well as expanding the facility’s parking.

About 50% of the craft that berth at the marina are registered in Spain, while the remaining yachts are dominated by craft from the UK, France, Germany, Sweden, Ireland, Portugal, the US, and Australia, according to data from the Spanish company. 

The project design is expected to be officially presented in September. The value of the planned investment was not disclosed by Combarromar.

Combarro is located in the country’s Galicia autonomous community.
