Laura Shaughnessy has been the managing editor at Dockwalk since February 2018. Having grown up among the cornfields, she is ecstatic to be among the boats in the yachting capital of the world. Armed with a bachelor’s degree in communications and a master’s in journalism, 15 years of experience with newspapers, magazines, and the online world, Laura has joined a great crew. When not writing about superyacht crew, she’s hanging out with her husband and their German Shepherd, working on house projects, or binging on Netflix.

Marina Genova aims to deliver the best standards possible for captains and crew, which is why they were quick to act in March 2020 when the lockdown went into effect. 

“Since the COVID age started, we have been organizing a lot of services in [the] marina and on board to guarantee the highest health safety possible to captains and crew,” says Valentina Peri, Marina Genova’s marketing manager. “That means a protected and secure environment, medical services and treatments on board, and all kind of deliveries on board,” from food and drink to medicine to personal care, and more.

Amid COVID-19, while it might be harder to enjoy the typical events and activities, captains and crew can still enjoy themselves at the marina, which offers lots of restaurants and bars, a gym, and crew club. They’re located 10 minutes from the city center, five minutes from Genoa’s international airport, and a few steps from their shopping district of Sestri Ponente. The marina features three large decks, 500 berths (of which 100 are for yachts ranging from 30 to 130 meters), and a shipyard area.
