Small boat Marina, Gibraltar

The huge project to build a 700-berth marina in Gibraltar was completed to a very tight timeframe and in just one single phase. Designed for local boats up to 10 m, the marina is protected by a fixed breakwater that was built simultaneously. This also serves as a public promenade and for berthing megayachts and passenger ships.

The customer demanded long life and low life-cycle costs and Marinetek products were thus specially chosen for minimal annual maintenance and 50 year design life. To meet the deadline, five different production lines in three countries were used for the project, a process known as the ‘One Marinetek’ strategy.
