Karpaz Gate Marina is located on the northern shore of the Karpasia Peninsula in Northern Cyprus and is one of the Eastern Mediterranean’s most attractive destination ports.
The number of superyachts visiting luxury five-gold-anchor-rated Karpaz Gate Marina has increased during a significant 2013 season.
The impressive berthing and on-shore facilities and range of leisure options at the unique venue are attracting a variety of sizable yachts as word spreads about the marina’s ability to cater for larger vessels.
Notable yachts visiting so far this season include a Sunseeker Predator 130, a 23m steel expedition yacht, a Shipman 63, a San Lorenzo 70, a 28m Benetti and a 25m Princess.
Deniz Akaltan harbour master commented, “This marina was specifically designed with superyachts and larger vessels in mind so we have everything in place to cater for these boats. From technical services and equipment to experienced and helpful staff, Karpaz Gate Marina is a great location for boats as an extended base or as a stop during a cruise of the region.”
Several boat owners have taken advantage of the marina’s substantial 300-ton travel lift to allow technical jobs to be carried out, with those on Karpaz Gate Marina’s Lucky 13 contract benefitting from a free lift out and launch back, plus free hull cleaning and sanding and two coats of anti-fouling.
Despite only opening in 2011, the 300-berth marina is rapidly achieving recognition as one of the Eastern Mediterranean’s premier superyacht destinations. A landmark 2013 season was recently crowned with the award of the top Gold Anchor Award Scheme status by The Yacht Harbour Association (TYHA) – the measure of marina excellence.
With the capability to accommodate vessels up to 55m, Karpaz Gate Marina has extensive technical services, experienced marine engineers and all the facilities necessary to cater for superyachts.
The attractive leisure options on offer are also proving irresistible, with the new beach club and 33m infinity pool, fitness centre, a variety of water sports and shopping facilities.
