Venice has to be a dream destination for many sailors, yet few realise there’s a modern 300-berth marina just 10 minutes from St Mark’s Square. It’s an ideal base for exploring the city, discovering the city’s labyrinthine lagoon, or cruising the Adriatic.
Venezia Certosa Marina is on the unspoilt 60-acre Certosa island, one mile from the open sea, yet just 15 minutes by public transport from the city centre and lagoon. You can also visit the lagoon aboard your own yacht, visiting the islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello, as well as the lesser-known northern islands. Slovenia and Croatia are only 50 miles away and it’s little more than 200 miles to the Greek island of Corfu.
French sailing legend Bruno Troublé keeps his yacht at the marina: “What a discovery,” he says. “Peace and quiet, no tourists, only 10 miles from the centre a wonderful place to make the most of Venice and the Adriatic Sea.” Berth holders can use their boat as a pied-à-terre for short breaks and year-round holidays exploring the city, its monuments, museums and cultural events such as La Biennale and the film festival. Short and long term moorings are available, while live aboard crews are also welcome.
All facilities at the marina are new in the last few years. Fresh water, power and WiFi are all available, as is 24-hour security and regular boat checks when berth holders are away. Yachts of up to 60 metres length and 7 metres draught can be accommodated, although most berths are for more modest sized craft.
Amenities on shore include indoor or outdoor dry storage, hotel, a restaurant and bar, chandlery, laundry and dry cleaning facilities. The on-site boatyard, where craftsmen build traditional Venetian boats, is also available for general maintenance, refits and repairs. There’s a sailing school on site, while excursions into Venice on kayaks or traditional traditional Topetta or Bragozzo launches are also all available. Venice is easy to reach thanks to numerous low cost flights from across the Europe to Venice Marco Polo airport, which is only 20 minutes from the marina.

A new report shows a drop in piracy and armed robbery at sea.
However, there has been an increase in kidnappings off the West African coast.
The figures for January-June 2016 have been compiled by the International Chamber of Commerce’s International Maritime Bureau (IMB).
Its Piracy Reporting Centre is the world’s only independent office to receive reports of pirate attacks, 24-hours-a-day, from across the globe.
IMB’s global piracy report shows 98 incidents in the first half of 2016, compared with 134 for the same period in 2015.
