Marina Vela – The marina for the “elite”  is ready for yachts.  


The new Marina Vela is open for yachts and will officially be completed and opened in summer this year. Marina Vela Barcelona is a new space dedicated for vessels of all sizes . Moorings can be booked for long-terms leases for yachts of 15M, 20M, 25M, 30M, 40M and it can accommodate only TWO superyachts ranging from 80-100M


Marina Vela is arguably one of the most impressive and brand-NEW port In Barcelona. With the acknowledged shortage of berths in the western Mediterranean for yachts, this is a unique opportunity.  With an excellent team in place, we are to welcome yachts with unparalleled hospitality.


As berth broker and representative of Marina Vela we are pleased to support your mooring request. 

Pre-reservations/ berth purchases can be done thru email to [email protected].


It is our pleasure to inform you about this fantastic facility and futuristic marina and invite you to discover the new Marina Vela Barcelona, a project which begun in 2013 

located in the same entrance to the harbour along the Barceloneta beach and city center. It will have two public promenades and 6000 sq.m plaza open to the sea. Another novelty we present is a dry storage marina for 222 vessels of up to 9M in length. This state-of-the-art dry storage marina is one of the first of its kind in the Med.

Let's moor in the heart of Barcelona Barcelona is easy reach from all over Europe throughout the year. This beautiful city has much to offer: its dynamism, its lifestyle, it’s fun atmosphere, and its many museums, art galleries and shops where to stroll on no-sailing days.


The future of berthing is coming to Barcelona in this shape of a robotic boat lift, which is due to be installed at Marina Vela. Construction is well underway

At first glance, this marina project appears like any other, with on-water moorings for vessels measuring up to 164ft (50m)

However, the futuristic element is largely hidden, with a robotic boat lift able to store up to 222 vessels in an underground dry dock.

It is estimated that the entire process will take less than ten minutes; meaning owners could launch their boat at relatively short notice.

The facility would be accessible 24 hours a day, 265 days a year, and will take vessels measuring up to 30ft in length and weighing up to four tonnes.

Marina Vela would be Europe’s first robotic boat lift and also superyachts can store their tenders in this dry-dock.
