One Ocean’s recently unveiled Marina Port Vell in the heart of Barcelona is an all-new, world-class home-port for superyachts. Located in the heart of Barceloneta, arguably the city’s coolest neighbourhood, Marina Port Vell is only a 10-minute walk from the city centre – and just a few steps from the city’s best-loved beach.
Originally re-developed for the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, Port Vell (Catalan for Old Harbour) recently underwent a four-year, $100m transformation courtesy of its London based owners, Salamanca Group who own OneOcean Ventures.
The marina is now equipped to securely berth and service 148 vessels of up to 180 metres and offers a full range of 7-star concierge services. The harbour also neighbours the world-renowned Marina Barcelona 92 shipyard, which boasts the Mediterranean’s largest and most comprehensive marine repair, repaint and refit services.
At the heart of the new development are two new buildings – The Gallery and OneOcean Club, which opened its doors in January 2015.
The Gallery’s facilities include a dedicated business centre with private meeting rooms, peaceful spa treatment rooms at OneOcean Wellness, alongside a state-of-the-art gym and sundeck complete with daybeds and dedicated crew lounge.
The OneOcean club is a private member’s club with 150-cover restaurant and cocktail bar.Year-round al fresco dining is accommodated on the club’s summer sundeck and winter terrace. While the restaurant is helmed by Catalan-born chef, Llorenç Valls, who was lured from the Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona and previously cut his teeth at the three-Michelin-starred Arzak in Basque country, which is ranked as one of the best 50 restaurants in the world.
With the impressive nautical amenities located within a day’s sailing of many iconic yachting destinations – including St Tropez, the Balearics and Sardinia – Marina Port Vell is set to become one of the most popular moorings on the Mediterranean – and with the luxurious facilities on offer, it is likely to become one of the most exclusive.
