Puerto Banús is now the most expensive leisure port in Europe, according to the latest ranking published by Engel & Völkers Yachting. The cost of a berth in the Marbella marina has now surpassed that of one of its main competitors in the Mediterranean, Ibiza Magna, which topped the rankings last year.
According to the ranking, docking a yacht of more than 55 metres in length in Puerto Banús costs 4,289 euros a day. This has increased by 20 per cent on 2018 when a berth of the same dimensions cost 3,545 euros a day.
This serves to demonstrate that Puerto Banús continues to be a European leader for both nautical and luxury tourism. It has 915 berths over an area of 15 hectares.
In second place in the ranking is the aforementioned Ibiza Magna, where a berth for a 55-metre yacht costs 4,084 euros daily, up 84 euros on last year.
Marina di Porto Cervo in Sardinia (Italy) is in third place (3,176 euros a day), while another Italian port, Marina Grand on the island of Capri, comes in fourth (3,000 euros per day).
