The recently announced project has already become a reality and many yachtsmen are in a hurry to try out the new product at the famous Egyptian resort.
Apart from white beaches and luxury hotels, the Marassi resort attracts the attention of not only ordinary citizens. The project to create an artificial harbor has come to an end and is already open to everyone. Marina is ready for guests!
A bit of the history of the resort
The project of the Marassi resort involved equipping a new artificial inner harbor with a whole set of berths. 23 separate docks can accommodate up to 228 pleasure craft up to 45 m (148 ft) in length. Moreover, all of them will have fully serviced berths.
We have experience in construction in the Persian and Oman Gulfs, as well as in tropical and subtropical regions. And of course in Australia.
Meanwhile, Walcon Marine Australia, in charge of the operations, has also installed a fully operational service dock. It is used to supply fuel and water and remove airborne liquid waste.
“Walcon is delighted to design and supply yacht infrastructure for this high quality resort! Our marina is a work of art, ”says James Walters, Managing Director of Walcon Marine Ltd.
“By the way, we had experience in construction in Persian and the Gulfs of Oman, as well as tropical and subtropical regions. And of course in Australia. This enables us to create more than just sustainable and recyclable pontoons and materials. Most importantly, we provide years of reliable service, ”he adds.
Most importantly, to date, all marina components for D, K, L and U docks have been delivered, installed and are now operational, and the rest are currently being manufactured in Australia and will be shipped shortly.
