Two firms are interested in building the proposed marina with 500 to 600 berths in the San Andrés area, at the mouth of the Guadalmedina river in Malaga city, and managing it for 50 years.
Both are joint venture companies: one is formed by Marina Malaga San SL and Marina de Formentera SA, while the other comprises Formentera Mar SA, Ailana Cubed SL and Port Med Malaga SL. Their applications will now be examined in detail to see which would be most suitable.
The plans are for a marina on the right hand side of the river with a 100,000-square-metre area on water, plus a further 28,000 square metres on land.
As well as the berths for yachts under 30 metres in length, the facilities will include a nautical complex with a sailing school, restaurants, shops and a social club.
