[dropcap]I[/dropcap]t is destined to become one of the main marinas for Megayachts in Central Italy. The final local plan for the development of Monte Argentario, has been recently approved by Regione Toscana and includes some forthcoming renovation works both in the port area of Porto del Valle (Porto Santo Stefano) and in Marina di Cala Galera, where up-to-50 mt yachts will find service, assistance and support.
The project will be introduced by the Major of Monte Argentario, Arturo Cerulli, in presence of the Minister of Infrastructure and Transport, Maurizio Lupi, on 28/29 March 2015, during the Meeting “Argentario Terra d’aMare”. The event will take place at the Argentario Golf Resort and Spa, a 5-star hotel with design rooms, 18-hole golf course, wellness centre and gourmet restaurant specializing in Tuscan cuisine.
A little bit of paradise for a unique and original luxury and design experience in the striking Maremma and charming Argentario, now more than ever committed in strengthening their economic activities and relaunching their land as tourist destination, targeted to accomodate megayachts and cruise liners, but also to host important sailing events. To date the Port has been occupied only by fishing and pleasure boats, ferry-boats and service boats in a not wholly logical way; now, according to the new local development plan, the stretch of water will be completely reorganized, as well as the land areas, the connections to the town and every related aspects, such as traffic and mobility.
The working areas will include a new dock for pleasure boats at Banchina Candi and an extension up to Molo della Valle, with a consequent reorganization of Darsena Arturo. Molo Garibaldi will instead be destined to the transit of the megayachts, boats and small cruise liners. Furthermore, a new fishing area will be built along Banchina Toscana, with a related expansion of the shipyards’ area and a completely new Darsena Traghetti, which will rise up next to the under-billow pier. As to the area dedicated to the pleasure boats, it will be organized as follows: 8 berths from 15 to 25mt in a polyfunctional dock, 382 berths from 8 to 30mt in the marina, 80 berths from 6.5 to 8mt for residents and the fishing area for 30 boats from 16 to 22.5 mt. As to the land area, the plan also includes new walking zones, many green areas and sustainable mobility solutions, with power generation systems by renewable energy sources for the public lighting. This project by Regione Toscana stands out for innovation and sustainability, excluding further residential buildings, but some new locations destined to offices, shops, bars and restaurants as well as diving and sailing schools.
