PORT VELL, BARCELONA: HOME OF THE SUPERYACHT
Originally built for the 1992 Olympic Games, Port Vell, rebranded as OneOcean Port Vell, has recently been transformed into one of the world’s leading destinations for superyachts. The marina is now an impressive 148-berth facility for yachts of five meters to so-called ”megayachts” of up to 190 meters. Is the first superyacht marina right in the heart of a major city and a huge boost to the local economy. Since major work on the marina was completed by SF Marina at the end of 2014, OneOcean has widely been acknowledged by owners and captains as a world-class homeport for superyachts to berth for a couple of days or permanently. In fact it won the ‘Best Marina & Port’ popular choice prize in this year’s Architizer A + Awards and an interior design award last year from the FX Interior Design Awards.
