Expansion boost at Port Louis
GRENADA: The Government of Grenada has given its support to a plan proposed by Camper & Nicholsons Marinas (C&NM) to increase berthing capacity at its Port Louis Marina by around 50%.
The new pontoons will complement the existing marina design and infrastructure and add 70 berths. They will be designed to provide flexible berthing for a range of vessels including superyachts, cruising yachts, local boats and charter yachts, and to host international sailing races and regattas and family-based maritime events.
The additional development further secures the promise of greater tourism links and associations, which will benefit the whole island, and the marina investment will run to several million dollars.
C&NM chief operating officer, Dan Hughes, comments: “The expansion of Port Louis Marina will be a significant step towards realising the full potential of one of our major marina assets which sees strong year-on-year growth. We have demonstrated our long-term commitment to the island of Grenada since the purchase of Port Louis Marina back in 2008 and our continued strong collaboration with the local government.”
“We have enjoyed considerable growth in the yachting sector by providing a sought-after destination and the local management and team provide reputable five-star service and a high level of safety and security to all who visit,” he continues. “The new berths will allow greater utilisation of the available water space and provide space for more yachts to visit and berth in Port Louis Marina and enjoy Grenada in the future.”
Build of the new berths is due to start in 2019.
