D-Marin completes the acquisition of Marina Punta Faro, which becomes the group’s 16th berth and the first D-Marin marina in Italy
During a well-attended press conference in the presence of local authorities and European media at Marina Punta Faro, Oliver Dörschuck, CEO of D-Marin, emphasised in his speech the importance of the acquisition of the marina for the D-Marin network, which thus obtains an additional sailing destination for its customers.
A seven-figure investment
Thanks to the investment, major innovations await Marina Punta Faro including the introduction of a high-speed WiFi connection and smart columns using innovative and environmentally friendly technologies. Also planned is the complete renovation of some of the marina’s buildings along with improvements to the existing piers. During the event, a bollard with a special engraving was donated to mark the occasion.
Oliver Dörschuck, CEO of D-Marin, said: ‘We are delighted to welcome Punta Faro to the D-Marin network and celebrate our first acquisition of a marina in Italy as we continue to grow our offering in the Mediterranean and Gulf region. We are committed to investing in the marina as part of our mission to create sustainable and advanced marinas for today’s and future generations. New technologies will provide better customer experiences through increased digitisation, including the implementation of advanced online booking and vessel security systems. We see ourselves as an integral part of the local community,” he says.
“It has been wonderful to see all our guests enjoying the marina’s hospitality. I am very excited about our new partnership and collaboration with the D-Marin team.
