MORE THAN MARINAS, WE DELIVER PEACE OF MIND FOR DECADES TO COME

We believe a state of the art marina should guarantee long lasting safety, comfort and reliability for at least half a century. Our marinas can be trusted through changing times, in even the most challenging conditions. Our loyal customers understand this, and benefit from the incomparable quality we provide. It is quality you don’t have to worry about, quality that your customers will know you for. By choosing us, you choose ideal means for stable and smooth marina operation. We make marinas that you can trust, and be proud to own.

WE DESIGN AND BUILD MARINAS THAT MEET UNIQUE REQUIREMENTS

OUR “FLOAT–HOW” IS WHAT RAISES US ABOVE THE REST

We understand all waters. That is where our passion lies. We know seas, oceans, lakes and rivers, and their unique challenges. We’ve dealt with currents, tides, winds and waves – the Arctic to the tropics and all over the world. Every marina is different, and we know how to achieve a perfect fit. We also understand your business, and know what you need to be successful. Our job is to listen,
and make every detail serve the big picture by building marinas that take everything into account. We provide a complete service for a successful process, from start to finish, and this is included in your investment.

That is what our expertise is about, and what our experience has perfected. We call it “float-how”. It is our unique combination of skill and knowledge.

OUR INTERNATIONAL SUCCESS IS CAST IN CONCRETE

We have mastered the art of building exceptional marinas out of concrete. Utilising big units of high strength concrete with thick walls and steel reinforcements, we achieve a unique capability to distribute mooring loads to the seabed. Strong and long lasting, concrete is the choice of practically every serious marina and waterfront developer. We deliver the benefits that concrete structures provide to marinas of all purposes and sizes. Our concrete solutions offer incomparable durability with practically no need for maintenance. You will retire one day, but your concrete marina will continue to offer reliable service.

TRUE PARTNERSHIPS THAT LAST A LIFETIME

We are proud of our marinas and our proven track record, but even more proud of the lasting relationships we build with our customers. We do it by listening, learning about their culture and exchanging insights. There isn’t a requirement or special request that our in-house designers and engineers haven’t been able to fulfil in the 30 years we have been in the business. Our 12 factories around the world are used to meeting the highest quality criteria, even with demanding schedules.

“As Technical Director of Camper & Nicholsons Marinas, I first used Marinetek on a major supply and installation contract in 2002 for the provision of pontoons for our Grand Harbour Marina in Malta and that installation remains as good as the day it was commissioned. As a consultant and marina operator to a global portfolio of third party clients, I have entrusted Marinetek for the fit out of several marinas and the service and follow-up support I have received has always been first class. Together, we have co-operated on several innovative design aspects of pontoons and bridges, improvements which are now incorporated in Marinetek products. That is what I call co-operation, not only in looking after the interests of Camper & Nicholsons, but striving to improve products available to the industry as a whole.”
