Work begins on new Livorno marina

Azimut|Benetti Group and marina operator D–Marin will begin work on the new Livorno marina in April 2024.

The marina, designed by Archea of Florence, is set to be completed in June 2026.

It will have 815 berths with an expected investment of around 14 -15 million Euros.

The project includes the renovation of the docks, meeting spaces, leisure and entertainment amenities. More than 220m2 of the site will be reserved for restaurants, 60m2 for bars, and 250m2 to offices.

Sustainable elements will include the use of natural elements such as trees and hedges in place of fencing, and solar panels will produce a significant portion of energy. Rainwater will be recovered for the irrigation of green areas.

“D-Marin believes strongly in Livorno. It will be one of the most prestigious marinas in the Mediterranean, built on shared values aligned on premium customer experiences, commercial excellence, sustainability commitments, and innovations,” explained Nicolo Caffo, general manager of D-Marin Italia. “In partnership with Azimut|Benetti Group, D-Marin will ensure Livorno Marina flourishes and becomes the renowned yachting hub we know it can be.”

And Paolo Vitelli, founder of the Azimut|Benetti Group added: “The Livorno marina will be a state-of-the-art realisation: the historical Medici harbour is incorporated in a modern, beautiful, eco-friendly marina open to the town and to international visitors.”

The project has taken around 20 years to materialise, with the project partners working with institutions and the local community to gain the required concessions.
