Marinas with yard services near Venice

Our new boat is currently in Lignano Sabbiadora to the east of Venice. The Marina Punta Faro is nice and has a decent range of services, but the travel costs each time I go out are mounting up - mostly the car hire needed to get there. I'm also finding the services there a little disjointed - dealing with the marina for berthing, another company for haul in/out and antifouling, and then separately with any mechanics or other specialists.

We are aiming to start cruising Italy, Croatia, Greece and onwarda from July and have a fair bit to organise so I'm expecting to be out quite regularly between now and then. I'd ideally like to find somewhere with easier transport to the (or a) airport, and where the services are a little more connected so we're dealing with less people.

We need to lift out for a bottom paint, service or replacement of a seized seacock, and a thorough checking of all the other seacocks. Ideally we'd also like to get checks of the rigging and gas installation - all other survey recommendations we can handle ourselves.

Am currently looking at Marina Vento di Venezia on Certosa in Venice. It ticks a lot of boxes in that it is an easy move from where the boat currently is, is very easy to get to from Venice airport (can get the Alilaguna direct from airport to Certosa), my flights to Venice are pretty cheap, it has a yard, and there's plenty to do nearby.

Any drawbacks to Certosa, or alternative suggestions?

Havent got there yet, as we are leaving Marina Frapa Nr Split / Croatia in two weeks time, and moving our Beneateu 393 to Marina San Rocco near Trieste.

Reason for going to this Marina, Its six hours drive from where I live in Germany, I can get an Overnight Sleeper from Munich if I dont take the car, Airport close by also. Seems to be a excellent selection of shops close by, and a number of Boat Yards.

Certosa is a lovely marina. Whats more it has a hotel on the island where you could stay while your boat is out the water. I have no experience with the yard but its certainly a big facility and looks professional from the outside

Of course there are many places in Croatia that can do the work too.

Have you considered having anti-foul wrap instead of paint. Its expensive but lasts 5 years. THere is an agent in Croatia who does this. Have a look at
