Plans firmed up for Habacoa

BAHAMAS: With the conceptual design and marina site plan now completed, work on the innovative Porto Habacoa superyacht marina and ultra-luxury resort in South Abaco is poised to begin.

Designed from the ground up to provide flexible berth sizes and give large yachts generous manoeuvring space, the marina will offer 152 wet slips of 60 to 700ft (12 to 213m) and drystack storage for 200 boats. All docks will have fuel and pump-out points.
The marina basin will be surrounded by a range of different residential offerings, a yacht club, a small casino, and a marina village with shops and restaurants. A seaplane will be available for island-hopping, and the entire resort will be lushly landscaped.
In addition to creating a new destination for megayachts, the developers are looking to attract small cruise ships in the 250-passenger (50/75 cabins/suites) size range. “We are also preparing a section of the marina to service sports fishing boats,” CEO and developer Ra’anan Ben-Zur tells Marina World. “We are close to some of the best sports fishing areas in the Atlantic Ocean.”
According to Ben-Zur, a call for tenders for marina systems and equipment is likely to be issued in May/June 2024. The projected opening of Porto Habacoa is late 2026.
