Our Barcelona marina is located in the municipality of Vilanova i la Geltrú. Just 45 minutes from the centre of Barcelona and 30 minutes from the city’s international airport – which boasts a dedicated private jet terminal – we offer our clients the perfect Mediterranean base for their superyacht. The marina has 48 superyacht berths ranging between 25 and 130 metres for yachts with a maximum draught of 6.5 metres. Each berth is serviced by a pedestal, complete with decalcified water and an electricity supply. Visitors will find modern and clean facilities as well as on-site year-round technical support services. Safety and security are of paramount importance. We’re ISPS certified and offer 24-hour security and surveillance services. We also operate a comprehensive environmental programme throughout the entire marina to ensure a clean and welcoming environment for guests and crew.
In the Autumn of 2019 we opened a superyacht Technical Service Centre at Vilanova Grand Marina, Barcelona, trading as Pendennis Vilanova.
Pendennis Vilanova Technical Service Centre
Focused on small to medium-scale refits, the Pendennis Vilanova Technical Service Centre is located close to the heart of the Spanish mainland’s yachting hub of Barcelona. It is operated by a dedicated team of tradespeople, including multi-lingual individuals from both the UK and Spain, whose skills range from fabrication, electrical and engineering to joinery, paint and exterior outfit. A large proportion of the Vilanova team have worked for Pendennis at their home base in Falmouth, UK, and bring their many years of experience in the busy world-class superyacht business.
The team at Pendennis Vilanova can flex to a client’s individual project requirements. With both 200t and 620t travel hoists on site, Pendennis Vilanova has the capability to haul yachts up to 60m out onto the hard standing. Clients are offered the ability to either self-manage or utilise the team of in-house tradespeople during their stay, with many projects choosing a combination of the two options. The proximity of the Technical Service Centre to the 48-berth marina means that projects can be carried out both on the facility’s 30,000sqm of hard standing or afloat in the marina itself. As a result, Vilanova has been transformed into the new destination for superyachts to conduct technical works in the Mediterranean.

Life in Barcelona
Vilanova i la Geltrú is a vibrant and friendly town with a population of over 65,000 and a wealth of amenities and leisure facilities. Vilanova is the capital of the small region of Garraf which remains refreshingly unspoilt despite its closeness to Barcelona. The area has 25 kilometres of large sandy beaches and tiny secluded bays almost hidden beneath rocky cliffs. The marina and Technical Service Centre is just a short walk from the town, which boasts an exquisite local cuisine as a result of its strong agricultural and fishing heritage.
With easy and regular links to Palma de Mallorca, Vilanovai la Geltrú is also close to ski location Andorra and the Spanish Pyrenées for winter sports enthusiasts. Long stretches of sandy beach are a kite surfer’s paradise and we offer a free on-site gym, weekly yoga classes and regular sports sessions to help you take care of your crew’s health and wellbeing. The marina also benefits from an on-site bar and restaurant, laundry services, private parking next to the berths and a dedicated customer service team.
