Ocean Marina in Sattahip, Thailand is both expanding and upgrading its existing facilities. The marina is the only one in the Gulf of Thailand with superyacht capacity.

“We are currently undertaking dredging which will increase the depth to 4m,” Scott Finston, harbour master at Ocean Marina, told SBN. “We are developing 100 new berths and replacing 100 existing ones. This will cost about US$3m and should be ready by the end of the year.”

Currently Ocean Marina can accommodate yachts up to 40m (130ft), but after the dredging and extension of T-jetty head, this will rise to 55m (180ft). The marina has already handled a number of yachts in excess of 30m (98ft).
