Ibiza, Europe’s most expensive city to moor a yacht
According a recent report published by the real estate company Engel & Völkers, Ibiza es the most expensive place in Europe to moor a private boat. Specifically, Ibiza Magna port is the one that has the highest price in Europe this summer. The daily mooring quote for a yacht of 55 meters in length stands at 3,025 euros.
Other European cities where to moor a recreation ship is more expensive are Capri, Portofino and Cerdeña (Italy). The next Spanish city in the ranking is Marbella, with a quote of 2.068€. So, Italy and Spain are the leading countries in term of port mooring prices.
In the middle and end of the list we can find ports of Saint-Tropez (France), Limassol (Cyprus), Split (Croatia) and Montecarlo (Monaco).
The Engel & Völkers study ensures that preferences for one port or another vary depending on the type of customer. Thus, while yacht owners often choose the Italian ports, boaters choose to dock in Montecarlo, Marbella, Saint-Tropez or Ibiza.
The origin of the difference in prices are, according Engel & Völkers, the location of the marina, the current high demand and the limited capacity of the top ports of the ranking. In addition, the cost of additional services such as electricity, water or refueling suply, which change greatly in price from one marina to another, is also another relevant factor.
