More notes about the marina

The small marina of Portomaran is situated on the N shore of the Laguna di Marano on the Adriatic coast of Italy, at the historic town of Marano Lagunare. The marina, which is run by a co-operative, is accessed via a channel dredged to a depth of only 1.5 metres at low water and is thus only suitable for shallow draft yachts. The marina provides 398 berths for yachts of up to 17 metres. Access is only permitted between 0800 and 1900.


Try calling Portomaran on VHF channel 09 or 16. You may have better luck if you telephone or email in advance for berthing information and reservations.


The marina is accessed by Porto Lignano/wiki/Portomaran_-_Marano_Lagunare#Porto_LignanoWorld icon.png Porto Lignano [[Portomaran - Marano Lagunare#Porto Lignano|Porto Lignano]] 45°41.996'N, 013°09.459'E , the main westernmost entrance to the Laguna di Marano. Porto Lignano lies immediately E of the peninsula of Lignano Sabbiadoro, between it and the low island of Isola di Martignano. Dangerous sandbanks extend offshore for over a mile on either side of the entrance and the safe water between the banks (which shift constantly) is marked by a red and white fairway buoy situated about 1.5 miles SSE of the channel. Yachts entering should pass within 50 metres of the buoy, which is moved to reflect the shifts, before turning on a course of c. 355 degrees to cross the bar and pick up the channel, which is marked with wooden posts (white to starboard and red to port). Depths in the channel are around 6.0 metres, but can be as little as 2.5 metres over the bar. An entry should therefore only be attempted close to high water and on a rising tide and never in strong onshore winds

On arrival, enter the channel leading up to the town and turn to starboard into another channel after 300 metres. The moorings of Portomaran are along this channel and in a small basin at the end. Depths in the channel up to Marano Lagunare can be as little as 1.5 metres at low water and entry should only be made, as with Porto Lignano itself, on a rising tide and close to high water. Depths at the moorings range from 2.0 - 3.0 metres, depending on the state of tide.


Assistance may be available, if not, berth wherever you can find a space. Berths are along the channel on a series of pontoons with fingers or inside the basin on pontoons or on a quay with mooring posts for four-point mooring.
