Li­mas­sol Ma­rina: The new su­pery­acht des­ti­na­tion

Financial Mirror (Cyprus) - - FRONT PAGE -

When the first su­pery­acht sailed into Li­mas­sol Ma­rina back in 2013, few could be­lieve that this would be the be­gin­ning of a new era for Cyprus. M/Y Anas­ta­sia made history as the largest ves­sel to en­ter a ma­rina on the is­land.

Peer­ing over the light­house, her slick 75m claimed its po­si­tion along the south east­ern break­wa­ter and changed the dy­namic of Li­mas­sol’s most am­bi­tious wa­ter­front de­vel­op­ment for ever.

Just last month, four of the most pres­ti­gious su­pery­achts in the world used the ser­vices and fa­cil­i­ties at Li­mas­sol Ma­rina, the only su­pery­acht ma­rina on the is­land. Sec­ond time vis­i­tor, 88.5m M/Y Nir­vana, was fol­lowed by 99m M/Y Madame Gu, 119m M/Y A and 72.6m M/Y Queen K. And th­ese are just a hand­ful of more than 50 su­pery­achts to have vis­ited or signed long-term berthing agree­ments with Li­mas­sol Ma­rina since its of­fi­cial open­ing.

“Ar­riv­ing af­ter just com­plet­ing our round the world cruise was the best move we could have made. The en­tire team was wel­com­ing, pro­fes­sional and en­thu­si­as­tic. Not only are the staff and fa­cil­i­ties first rate, but the sur­round­ing area pre­sented a myr­iad of safe and won­der­ful op­por­tu­ni­ties to ex­pe­ri­ence the fine cui­sine, history and nat­u­ral beauty of Cyprus. Li­mas­sol Ma­rina is the per­fect place to base any yacht. We ea­gerly look for­ward to re­turn­ing,” said Cap­tain Christopher Walsh, 67.75m M/Y Archimedes.

With the world su­pery­acht fleet grow­ing in num­bers, de­liv­er­ies are on the rise and sizes are in­creas­ing. Berths are in de­mand and a lack of space in the tra­di­tional
