The Italian Ports Where Billionaire Yachts Go …
Of “The 10 Best Places To Spot A Billionaire’s Yacht”, three of these monied ports of call can be found where the police, aka Polizia, speak Italian: They are Porto Cervo, Capri and Portofino.
According to the website, richest.com: “Elegant and graceful, megayachts are like estates on the water. We’re curious about how these enormous “boats” find places to dock when they’re cruising around looking for the next hot spot to stop in for a night of dancing, dining and shopping.
These marinas are some the finest for billionaires who own the world’s largest and most glamorous luxury yachts. Everyone knows that these boats cost millions, but does anyone realize that mooring these over-sized water mansions can cost as much or more than staying in the most expensive hotels in the world, particularly during popular events like the Cannes Film Festival. The marinas we’re about to show you include every amenity imaginable, including 24-hour concierge services. These marinas are located in some of the world’s most incredible beach cities and offer a great deal in terms of: nightlife, events, private clubs and other jet-setter activities. (The marina prices on the following pages all reflect a per night berth cost in high season.)
# 8. Porto Cervo – Sardinia, Italy: $3,100/Night
Sardinia is the second largest island in Italy and also the second largest island in the Mediterranean. Although its Italian influence is strong, it offers a slightly different flavor than on the mainland. The coastline of the island is spectacular and although there are many marinas around its large 9,301 square miles area, Porto Cervo is the place for the megayacht crowd. One of the main attractions in Porto Cervo is the Billion nightclub, which is three stories tall with incredible views, dining, music, dancing and impeccable service. This internationally renowned club is one of the most exclusive and desirable places to see and be seen.
# 7. Marina di Portofino – Portofino, Italy: $3,335/Night
Portofino is a small village, once known for fishing. With only one road in and out, megayachts and other vessels like to motor in rather than pop in by car. This marina is reserved for the enormously wealthy as there is only room for 14 megayachts. The personal services, exclusivity and privacy is worth every penny to celebrities such as: Rihanna and Russian billionaire, Andrey Melnichenko, owner of his own mega yacht that is around 390 square feet in length.
# 5. Marina di Capri – Capri, Italy: $4,000/Night
Capri has always been a famous hot spot for the likes of George Clooney, Jay Z and media king, David Geffen. Geffen’s megayachts are often spotted in this marina: Pelorus and the Rising Sun (two of the top 20 largest superyachts in the world). In the 50′s, it was also a known getaway for popular celebrities such as: Sophia Loren and Jacqueline Kennedy. Capri’s ambiance is lively with exciting nightclubs, shopping, restaurants and incredible villas.
