Re: Wher to go for Catamaran friendly marine + not Pricey ?

Preveza is more in the middle of nowhere.
The airport is 2min away by taxi, but only active in summer time.

In winter you have to go there via Athens airport. That is an ~8h bus trip.

It's about 2hrs south and there is a bus service from the airport. Middle of no where? I guess it depends what the OP is looking for.



Feel free to offer another suggestion. I'd love to hear about other options.

Sure but if they dont charge a surplus for cats then that is the price for a mono, right?

Its cheap for a multi but normal for a mono.
I would not call this expensive for the western Med, certainly not for a marina within reach of the Balearics.

I'm still waiting for your suggestion of a better option.

Re: Where to go for Catamaran friendly marine + not Pricey ?

Sorry I have to disappoint you by not giving you a specific answer. From experience it does not help to get good prices by speaking about them publicly. Reasons are obvious. Prices in practice differ greatly from those on the price list and if you look around you can always find a great place at a reasonable price. Rest is subject to negotiation.

For example you can find a place to stay directly in Mallorca in a 12x4m slot for less than you have quoted. That is why I commented on the mono price because that is where I am right now with an annual contract.

Sorry for not being more specific.

What can help is to spread the word about reasonable prices in Marinas you have been to in previous years.
Chances are that folks will flock there, and prices in the other Marinas that you may visit next year are lower.

I agree and wish it would be that way. Reality often is that if you want to return in the future those who offer good prices then get the pressure to adhere to the "industry standard" of the eco system and not spoil the fun for everybody else.

If you can negotiate huge discounts, then it is cheaper than what you suggest for Mallorca.

Reality is there is no secret cabal controlling prices and you aren't protecting the rare marina that violates the cabal pricing guidelines. If you don't feel like sharing information, why post on a thread asking for information? I can guarantee you sharing won't make bit of difference to anyone's pricing. I have my theories about what our behavior represents but there's a "be nice" policy for the forum.

Sorry but I did not understand what you are trying to say.

Re: Where to go for Catamaran friendly marine + not Pricey ?

I have family and friends across the pond. Neither with a cat. Although a friend says he found a slip near Athens for about $1k usd for the entire year, 40' mono. Not sure what marina. From my own research about where it is cheapest to keepa cat, in a nice, sunny tropical area, is the Rio Dulce, Guatemala.
