Port Adriano, a true hidden gem

Located in the western-central area of the mediterranean, the world renowned island of Mallorca
offers the perfect backdrop for an array of cultural and touristic amenities, making it an ideal
destination for any superyacht cruise. As the main island in the small archipelago of the Balearic
Islands, Mallorca is conveniently located in the wider area of Spain’s attractive mediterranean
east coast, the France’s exquisite Côte d’Azur, Corsica and Sardinia. As such, the island is simply
an ideal location either as an intermediate stop or a magnificent final destination. Either way,
Mallorca is a must for those who fancy a warm Spanish mediterranean ambiance, amazing cultural
and geological sightseeing, a bubbly nightlife and the attractive local hospitality and gastronomy.
The Romans were one of the first to discover all the attractive things Mallorca has to offer, and the
island has been flourishing ever since.

On the southwest coast of the island there is a superb destination, brand new location for superyachts.
Wonderfully designed and supplied with ample luxury amenities, Port Adriano is simply the go-to
spot for those who wish to discover Mallorca, in style. Comfortablye whisked away from the proximity
of the major touristic destinations, yet conveniently centrally located, Port Adriano is one of the
most elegant and best equipped marina’s in all of the wider mediterranean yet to be discovered by the
industry, a true hidden gem. And being completely designed by Philippe Starck, Port Adriano is a perfect
combination of elegant style, lush comfort and perfect luxury.

The marina was conceived from a clear concept that seamlessly blends cutting edge design with
present-day requirements for luxury and amenities, all combined in a lush, aesthetically pleasing blend
of innovation and comfort. With this in mind, Philippe Starck took on this project in his own unique way,
providing the Port Adriano with an elegant, signature look while pushing the boundaries for users’
comfort compared to traditional marinas. First off, there is the unique approach of how infrastructure
has been arranged in and around the marina. Shaded parking is provided, traffic in front of the berths
and shops is completely absent and there are impressive amounts of space available for yachts ranging
anywhere from 6 to 80 metres, comprised of an impressive 25,000 square metres of berths with 82 moorings
specifically dedicated for larger vessels. The latter are available for superyachts between 20 and
80 metres all year round, extending the LOA to 100 metres during the high season. On top of that, there
is a 10,000 square metre technical area, including a shipyard equipped for handling larger sized yachts.

In short, Port Adriano is a magnificently equipped, spaciously set up marina that is perfectly prepared
for the future of the superyacht industry. All this, while maintaining a pleasantly intimate ambiance.
As with all great design, it’s all about the details, and with such smart solutions as concealed cabling
throughout the entire grounds, and 24 square metres storage spaces in front of all berths, Port Adriano
undeniably has the wow-factor.

Obviously it’s not all about impressive statistics, in the end it’s the overall experience that counts.
As for that, Port Adriano is aimed at providing guests with a perfect setting for a remarkable stay,
every single time. An extensive shopping area is a mere stone’s throw away from the berths, conveniently
located right in the centre of the marina. With the entire shopping area also being traffic-free, shopping
is smooth and comfortable, just the way it should be.

Stores in the area offer a wide range of exclusive and prestigious international nautical and
top-quality fashion brands. Additionally, a variety of boatyards and luxury boat brokers are
also represented, for your convenience. To top it all off, Port Adriano was designed with wide
walkways, spacious terraces in the sun and shade, and an esplanade for events. All that, combined
with a selection of exquisite restaurants, offering an excellent selection of international cuisines,
makes every experience in Port Adriano a relaxating, entertaining and convenient one, guaranteed.

Superyachting can be about style, luxury, elegance, leisure or excitement, but it is mostly about
a lifestyle that lets you have all the best things that life has to offer. All of these things have
been stylishly combined into one lush and attractive package, located at the southwest of one of the
mediterranean’s most desirable destinations. Port Adriano is firmly set on becoming the place to be
for the entire region.

exclusive private cruises in Greece and further.

Some of this year’s highlights are superyacht Mabrouk, Fleurtje and Ouranos. With an LOA of 38 metres,
superyacht Mabrouk is a perfect example of a whole that is so much more than the sum of it’s parts.

Her interior and exterior design follows a lucid vision and blends a fresh and modern style
with optimal comfort and luxury. In other words: a perfect blend for a high quality stay onboard
an extraordinary vessel,in an environment that offers everything one could ever dream of.
At 57 metres, Fleurtje has extremely elegant lines. The long overhangs at bow and stern,
the rich Awlgrip blue hull and 3 Douglas Fir masts with stay sail plan, combine into a handsome profile.
Fleurtje offers accommodation up to 12 guests, and is available from € 89,000 to € 99,000 per week.

With a name derived by the ancient Greek god of the heavens, superyacht Ouranos promises to
aim for the sky. Launched last May, this 45 metre vessel is the latest addition to the extensive
collection of superyachts built by acclaimed, Italy-based shipyard Admiral Tecnomar Group, and the
first in their Nadara 45 series. Boasting a range of impressive stats, for instance in the field of performance
and consumption, Ouranos embodies an appealing concept combining speed, superb stability and optimal guest comfort,
all wrapped in a luxurious package of contemporary elegance.

Inflatable Sofa Beats a Folding Chair

Sea Emporium, a supplier of goods for luxury yachts, has teamed with Blofield Air Design to offer these inflatable sofa sets for use on beaches, on boats, and wherever else waterproof inflatable furniture might come in handy.

The names of these pieces alone make them worth a look. The Big Blo 1 is a single seat, while the Big Blo 2 is designed for a pair of rear ends. There’s also a Baby Blo if you want the kiddies to be as comfortable as the adults.

Blofield says that each of the products inflates within a few minutes by using its custom pump, then can be deflated to fit in a storage bag that you toss into your boat’s lazarette.

None of the Blos are recommended for use in the water, as tempting as the idea may be. The manufacturer says they come clean with soap and a hose, or with a special Blofield solution.

Available colors are stone, white, midnight gray, and black. You get to decide if you want to layer on a neon beach towel just for fun.

The Pearl 75 unveiled in Port Portals

Last night saw the unveiling for the first time in Majorca of the Pearl 75 , designed by Bill Dixon with the interior created by Kelly Hoppen. As always a fabulous night in the Port Portals Marina , a popular place for yachting enthusiasts within the luxury of the sought after location boasting good dining and designer shopping.

The Pearl 75 Yacht had many features for the keen yachtsman, a high end ” Boy’s Toy ” of engineering technology with many extra’s, the reception was well met with those invited, enjoying a champagne reception.

The Yacht interior was , in my humble opinion , rather ” griege ” , and lacking a bit of “Wow” factor , usually when “dressing” a home for selling it is key to keep within the realms of neutral therefore not pressing your particular choice of style and colour preference on a prospective buyer encouraging them to add their personality to the home after purchase, but did Kelly play too safe with this project ?? methinks Yes.

All of the colour scheme remained the same throughout the yacht it melded into one colour palette of beige/grey/taupe, I personally loved the carpeting showing texture with the deep pile, good idea with the comings and goings of sailing , the main furniture pieces were basic beige or cream , a good safe choice, but cushions and highlighting decor were kept within the same colour range too!!, even down to the pictures on the wall ( is floral the way to go?? and what about the guy’s !!) , not a bit of daring contrast to be seen, no accent to enhance, to me it looked like a Zara Home’s 2012 meets Yachting 2013 ( I Love Zara by the way -AT home ) and the vases on a bedside table !!! where does my cocktail sit ? If you can afford the Pearl 75 Yacht you have “sanctuary” and proper use of colour would enhance that , you have the option to go to the East whenever you want I assume , so don’t you deserve some excitement in the colour scheme while in the Med, some added style when cruising ?? I think so, I am not suggesting a “wild” scheme but character is also part of life, and a little goes a long way.

The lighting was great , uber cool even fun , the interesting use of windows to add light through the below deck corridor was inventive , the blinds within the glass panes a good and practical idea. The use of space a marvel, I loved the drawer space, and the bathroom’s were as ultra modern as you would expect in a luxury home. All in all a great use of the space on board giving the impression that the 75 foot Yacht was actually much longer.

Our latest flagship breaks new ground. Reflecting our owners needs and desires, the Pearl 75 brings together sumptuous space with luxurious styling and outstanding levels of comfort. Add to that the impressive manoeuvrability, a class beating flybridge, a jet ski garage and a hydraulic bathing platform and you have a yacht that will have our competitors reaching for the drawing board.

Bill Dixon the designer of the Pearl 75, only in his early twenties when he took over leadership of Angus Primrose soon changing the name to Dixon Yacht Design. The Pearl 75 is a testament to Bill’s abilities .

The team that make up Dixon Yacht Design are a highly trained and very experienced group, several of whom have been with Bill for many years.

Today the company, which recently moved its headquarters to more spacious accommodation in Swanwick Marina near Southampton, continues to look forward in every aspect of its business.

Kelly Hoppen Commenting ahead of the launch in Sept 2012 ,Kelly enthused “My aim with this exciting project was to instil a feeling of sanctuary in the Pearl 75, so it was perfect to use my East meets West philosophy. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Pearl 75 team and I’m thrilled with the results. I’m really looking forward to unveiling the Pearl 75 at the Southampton Boat Show.”

Palma to host International Yachting Forum


With the Palma International Boat Show called-off in 2012 due to a lack of interest from exhibitors, and a lack of Government funding, the Balearic Island intends to come back with a bang in 2013.

Not only are public and private sectors joining forces to lay on a Boat Show (from 1 to 5 May) that promises to stimulate nautical tourism on an international scale, but running alongside from 1 to 3 May there will be the inaugural Palma International Yachting Forum.

Described as a “must attend” event for all international yachting professionals, the Yachting Forum will embroil like-minded colleagues on a wide range of issues set to face the yachting world in 2013 and beyond.

Organiser Peter Franklin, himself a member of the Balearic Nautical Business Association, says “The Palma International Yachting Forum has intentionally been staged at the same time as the Boat Show to provide the interactive and networking platform that all successful boat shows need.  It will complete Palma’s international and professional appeal and attract overseas visitors to this great Mediterranean city. Palma has one of the finest and best established infrastructures in the world for berthing, maintaining and repairing superyachts and catering to the needs of their owners, charterers and crew – we want to showcase that.”

Attended by some of the yachting industry’s most prominent experts in their respective fields, the Yachting Forum plans to not only discuss topical subjects but also act upon them.  Additionally, instead of simply passively listening to presentations being delivered, delegates will interrelate via morning work groups that have the objective of pulling out the key points to be raised and debated at the larger afternoon sessions presided over by a panel of experts.  In short, boredom levels promise to be low and value for money high.

Networking opportunities will also be delivered in spades.  The venue, the centrally located Chamber of Commerce building, allows for informal Spanish courtyard-style tapas lunches and facilitators will be ensuring that everyone “gets down to business”, eliminating “non-relevant discussion” so that more relaxed networking can take place from 5pm onwards i.e. a shorter “working day” than for comparable forums.

Planned tours and social events

Peter continues, “Aside from being satisfied on a commercial level, we would like Yachting Forum visitors to come away with a feeling that they’ve learnt a bit about Palma as a city and had a great social time.  The Palma 365 Tourism Department is cooperating to offer special hotel and restaurant deals whilst organised trips to Palma’s greatest attractions such as the Aquarium, with the deepest shark tank in Europe, and imposing gothic Cathedral are scheduled for the end of each working day.  For those who want to make a weekend of it, we’ll have a Golf Day organised by a PGA Professional and a Classic Car Experience organised by Mallorca Driving Club – both superb spring activities on this stunning Island.”

Prices for the Palma International Yachting Forum start from 250GBP for one day, including coffee, tea, soft drinks, pastries and the tapas lunch.  Other activities and flights/accommodation are excluded.  Early bird applications prior to 20 December 2012 will receive a 5% cashback bonus upon arrival at the Forum in May.
