Superyacht Pier Boosts Business At Phuket Yacht Haven Marina
Published: Monday, 09 February 2015
Phuket Yacht Haven Marina in Thailand is regarded as a port of choice for superyachts cruising the area. Now, the marina has become even more attractive with the addition of 800 linear metres of alongside berths ready to welcome yachts between 60- to 100-metres.
Marina managers Nick Wyatt and Zara Tremlett collaborated with Marinetek Super Yacht Pontoons, a Finland-based company well known for its durable, low-maintenance concrete pontoons.
The pontoons were manufactured in Johor, Malaysia and transported by tug and barge. They were installed and anchored in less than six weeks.
The pontoons, built using the Seaflex Mooring System and JLD Marine Anchors, are able to handle huge loads with minimal impact on marine eco-systems.
Yachts that have been on a waiting list are already starting to fill up the berths.
