Italy is the most expensive place in the world to berth a super-yacht, where it can cost up to €2,900 a night to moor a 24 metre-plus boat.

The Italian resorts of Capri, Porto Cervo and Portofino topped Wealth Bulletin’s annual survey of the most expensive resorts in the world to berth a super-yacht.

Experts say Italy has retained its allure as one of the most-visited superyacht communities in the world – underlining the price paid at luxury marinas like Porto Cervo in Sardinia.

However, prices can fluctuate wildly during peak times, especially in the famed South of France marinas of Monaco, St Tropez and Cannes.

But even the world’s most expensive marinas have not escaped the global economic slowdown.

With around a third of super-yachts up for sale, according to yacht broker Camper & Nicholson, the whole industry has suffered.

But for the global fleet of an estimated 4,200 superyachts, motor or sailing boats measuring 24 metres and more, keeping a boat in a backyard is not an option.

David Namani of consultancy Superyachts.com said: “There is a severe shortage of marinas capable of offering services to such large vessels, so marinas still charge high prices.”
