Marinanow, the online platform that allows users to book berths and boats throughout the Mediterranean, announced today the agreement with D-Marin, Doğuş Group company, who manage 11 unique marinas in the Ionian, Aegean & Adriatic Seas, and who aim at becoming the most effective corporation in developing the marina & yachting business in the Eastern Mediterranean.
The agreement was unveiled during the last day of the Web Summit, one of the most important tech conferences in the world, whose “ALPHA” program Marinanow had been selected for, reaching the semi-final stage.
“We are very happy to announce this agreement here today at Web Summit – Livio Quintavalle, chief operating officer of Marinanow, commented – Our company has experienced very fast growth in these last few months due to the projects we’re involved in, above all the digitalization of the Mediterranean ports. We are delighted that we can also count on the D-Marin network in the Eastern Mediterranean to support the marinas in this delicate transition to digital.”
As a result of the agreement, Marinanow will expand its offering in the Eastern Mediterranean with the D-Marin marinas in Croatia (Borik, Mandalina, Dalmacija), Greece (Gouvia, Flisvos, Lefkas, Zea) and Montenegro (Dukley Marina Budva) and officially enter the Turkish market (Turgutreis, Didim, Göcek). In addition, the Italian company will also benefit from a network of marinas that are able to host megayachts.
D-Marin, on the other hand, will take advantage of Marinanow’s technology that will simplify and automate the berth booking processes; furthermore, the Turkish company will expand its offering at an international level thanks to Marinanow’s multilingual platform and get access to a market that can grant tens of thousands of luxury boats from the west Mediterranean.
“This agreement marks another step forward for the digital nautical industry and we’re very proud to work side by side with Marinanow – M. Kemal Saatçıoğlu, chief operating officer of D-Marin, added – We’re pretty confident that thanks to their technology we will provide our marinas with more impactful tools that will make their booking processes even easier and faster.”
