Mataró Marina Barcelona opens its facilities for superyachts

The Minister of the Presidency of the Government of Catalonia, Neus Munté, officially opened Mataró Marina Barcelona for superyachts, which managed by Varador 2000. The minister highlighted the fact that these new facilities will make the Maresme’s capital city “A benchmark within the sector in Catalonia”. Munté also added that the marina will help “boost economic activity in the area and create jobs”.

The minister took a tour of the facilities of Mataró Marina Barcelona accompanied by the president of Varador 2000, Xiqui Mas, and the mayor of Mataró, David Bote. During her visit, Munté referred to the “company’s commitment to training and to yachting and sailing”.  The marina includes a training area where vocational training students from the Miquel Biada secondary school in Mataró can do practical studies for a diploma in ship maintenance. In addition, a sailing course for children will soon be starting up, along with other initiatives related to sailing and training.

During the inauguration of the marina the mayor of Mataró stated that, “Boosting marina activities will boost the city”, and he also mentioned how keen Mataró city council is to seek further ways to collaborate with Varador 2000 and develop more activities and initiatives in the area.

Xiqui Mas, president of Varador 2000, also referred to the role this marina will play in developing “tourism and sailing in the Maresme region”. Mas went on to point out that “The financial success of the marina is the financial success of the city, the region and the country. Our aim is to bring added value to the Catalonian nautical sector, encourage tourism and build wealth in the area”. Mas, as head of Varador 2000, stated that this nautical base is a cross-cutting project, where the company has its technical headquarters and performs maintenance on boats that moor in the marina as well as other boats.
