During the press conference, Marco Cornacchia, Cala del Forte’s Harbourmaster, stated:

We have chosen to professionally train our own human resources in order to provide our clients with the standards of excellence and professionality that are at the heart of Monaco Ports, which proudly counts Cala del Forte among its marinas. We strongly believe in this project and have decided to fund it entirely without external contributions or partnerships. This means we have personally selected the teachers, industry professionals and various experts in the many subjects that shall be taught during face-to-face lessons in the classroom and during practical trials on the docks. Those who stand out as the best of the thirty participants will be hired by Cala del Forte, starting as early as August 2019. In fact, the construction work at sea is close to its final stages and we expect to be completed by September 2019.”


The Cala del Forte Marina shall be fully operational from the first quarter of 2020.
