MDL Marinas is adding its Spanish marina, Sant Carles to the MDL Freedom Berthing network – opening up international cruising opportunities for berth holders and adding even more value to its annual berthing package.

Sant Carles Marina in Spain



Freedom Berthing was a new concept launched by MDL Marinas at the Southampton Boat Show in 2011, offering unlimited visitor nights across the network’s UK marinas. Leading the way in the industry, the scheme was designed in response to customer demand and offers genuine cruising opportunities for boat owners, with MDL marinas located across the South, South West, East Coast and the Thames.

Using three regional zones to define the MDL marina network - Hamble, South Coast Central and East to West and Thames - berth holders select their chosen home marina, and then receive unlimited marina berthing in their own and other zones.  Sant Carles has been added to zone three, meaning any MDL annual berth holder can travel to Spain and enjoy unlimited marina berthing as part of the Club Outlook package.

Dean Smith, Marketing Director at MDL Marinas, said: “Our 2012 annual berthing package is the best yet. Not only can our berth holders enjoy unlimited visitor nights in the UK at some of the most beautiful locations along the coast and riverside, they can now also enjoy the same benefits and the great sunshine in Spain. This is just one of the many fantastic benefits on offer this year – making for a truly first-class marina offering at some really affordable prices.”

Not only has MDL Marinas enhanced the Club Outlook package, the UK’s favourite marina group has also made a huge investment in customer service with the appointment of three regional directors. Well-known faces and experienced marina managers, Dave Wilson, Nicola Walsh and Mike Glanville take up these roles, and are tasked with leading the customer-focused activity and implementing best practice across all of MDL’s marinas.

Sant Carles Marina is situated in the town of Sant Carles de la Ràpita on the beautiful Costa Dorada in Catalonia, Spain, approximately 100 miles south of Barcelona and the same distance north of Valencia. Located within a sheltered lagoon, the marina enjoys a quiet and peaceful location but is within easy access of Spain’s major towns, cities and airports. The marina benefits from an on-site infinity pool, customer lounge and excellent facilities for berth holders and overnight visitors. For more information see Freedom Berthing.
