"It is having a positive impact on the economy, and celebrates unprecedented achievements, including over 500 million euros in property sales, 50 nationalities of buyers, more than 7,000 yacht arrivals since its opening - including 275 world-famous superyachts, the largest measuring 111m and 143m - and over 4,000 daily visitors in the dining and shopping area," it said in a statement.

In an overall investment value of 400 million euros, the Blue Flag and Five Gold Anchor Platinum Marina has set new standards for the high-end real estate market, yachting and entertainment over the years, it added.

More than 90 percent of its 285 residential properties have been sold.
