May 2020 update 

First and foremost, we hope that you and your loved ones are well and have not suffered the physical consequences of Covid-19.

We are sharing this message in order provide an update on the current state of advancement of construction at Cala del Forte, that, unfortunately, has suffered from delays due to the containment measures put in place by the relevant authorities. As you can see from the pictures, a large portion of the marina has already been completed, but due to the constraints imposed by the Italian authorities to combat and contain the spread of the Coronavirus, many of our suppliers have not been able to meet their deadlines, which in turn has delayed the completion of construction as set out in our Chrono-program.

We have worked at length with the authorities during confinement, and, taking into account possible further delays in securing prime building materials, we have re-issued a new Chrono-program that will enable us to welcome yachts in the 4th trimester of 2020.

Concerning the scheduled opening ceremony, a decision shall be taken once we have more elements in our possession that shall enable us to assess decisively the date of its occurrence. Currently, we do not yet have detailed information concerning security and legal measures that shall be enforced, nor can we foresee the evolution of the global pandemic in the coming months.

In any event, we do not believe that it would be either ethical nor respectful to hold such a ceremony during such a tragic moment.

We would desire that the inauguration of Cala del Forte be not only a celebration of the great accomplishment that has been the construction, but also a moment to rejoice in a return to more ‘normal’ times.

 

Our staff remains at your disposal for any further information or assistance that you may require.
