Boats moored in a marina

Where to moor is a frequently asked question among those who choose to spend their vacation by boat, and perhaps explore the most beautiful shores of the Italian coast. It is often difficult to navigate through rates, unavailable berths, and difficult-to-contact marinas. Choosing a network of marinas like Marinedi solves this problem: as in a hotel chain, all marinas in the network have the same level of services and quality standards. What’s more, choosing one of Marinedi’s 14 ports allows you to take advantage of a number of benefits:

  • 6 vouchers for free mooring at all network facilities if you are an annual customer
  • progressive “bring a friend” discount by introducing a new customer in the same marina: 1 friend 10% discount, 2 friends 15% discount and so on. Valid for annual and seasonal clients.
  • possibility to split the duration of the berth in more than one marina in the network (spending at least 8 months in the same facility), if you are an annual customer.
  • Fourth day free mooring for all customers transiting for at least 3 days in the same marina.
