It has been a dream of the residents and the local authorities for more than 20 years. Discussions had started in late 1980s but due to lack of money, there was no progress. However, now it is the time for this dream to come true: the new marine that will be built in the port of Zakynthos will give a new impoulse for the tourist and econimic developement of the island!
The work has already been auctioned and the construction company AKTOR has undertaken it. In the best case scenarion, the marine will be ready before summer, when the peak season starts. It will have 150 seats and it will raise the status of the island as a developed tourist destination.
