Berths for mega yachts
Mega yacht berths on the peninsula, called boxes, are used to accomodate boats from 20 to 25 metres. Each box safely accomodates two boats which are moored allongside. All berths are equipped with high quality water and electricity supply bollards. In line with European standard, these bollards supply the boats with three-phase electrical service of 16 amps, 32 amps and 63 amps. Water outlets are of 1 inch. Increasing difficulty of finding a berth for large yachts and 100 percent occupancy of current berths resulted in construction of additional mega yacht berths.

At these berths yachts are moored stern toward pier using the four rope mooring system.
