Camper & Nicholsons Marinas is delighted to announce that the new berth expansion is now complete! Having seen a year-on-year increase of yachts visiting the ‘Island of Spice’, Grenada offers guests an authentic experience to enjoy.
The island is increasing in popularity and Port Louis Marina continues to be the destination of choice on many superyacht and charter yacht itineraries.
The Grenada Tourism Authority met with the Port Louis Marina team to open the new pontoons at the marina and congratulate the marina on offering the excellent facilities to the island of Grenada.
90 new berths were designed ranging from 12 metres to 22 metres on 2 new piers forming part of an exciting expansion development boosting greater opportunity for a larger number of yacht visitors, and long lease berthing options in the marina.
Charlotte Bonin, Marina Manager at Port Louis Marina comments,
“We have seen an increase of demand for seasonal and visiting yachts to Port Louis Marina, and the expansion of the new berthing is to better facilitate charter yachts visiting the island of Grenada, and further support sailing events and regattas with more berthing solutions. We are delighted to open in time for the Caribbean season!”
“Grenada’s unspoiled sailing grounds and safe surroundings have made the destination a hub for yacht stop-offs and extended cruises,” said Grenada Tourism Authority (GTA) CEO Patricia Maher. “After a bumper growth of 14% in yachting arrivals in 2018, we are pleased to maintain the momentum with 20,954 visitors visiting our shores year to date in 2019; we are thrilled to be amongst the world’s top boating spots.”
