As the yacht market continues to develop in the Southern Caribbean, Charlotte Fairhead, Marina Manager at Port Louis Marina comments,
“With popularity rising for cruising the Grenadines, Port Louis Marina has recently invested in more secure berthing. The marina layout has 27 berths for superyachts from 35M to 100M, and 200 berths for cruising yachts. The new pontoons have been designed to accommodate professional sailing rallies and regattas with space on land to enjoy presentations and prize giving’s, helping create an energetic buzz and yachting community at its centre.”
The marina itself benefits from being a Port of Entry on the island with its own facilities including supermarket, shopping, fitness, swimming pool and chandlery. Pontoon facilities include high speed wifi, water, 24hr security, and dual power.
Grenada’s access to the rest of the world, including the Caribbean, America and Europe is secured by frequent international flights, and an exclusive private jet terminal perfect for discerning superyacht charter clientele.
Whether as a homeport, or cruising destination, Port Louis Marina has all of the conveniences amenities and services expected of a contemporary superyacht marina, badged by the premium Camper & Nicholsons brand name, and is a luxury destination providing an excellent quality of life for those who choose.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Grenada proved to be one of the safest Caribbean islands implementing an immediate lockdown to halt any virus spread. Port Louis Marina has been instrumental in working with MAYAG (Marine and Yachting Association of Grenada) in creating a safe yacht entry protocol. This has resulted in many island activities ‘open’ with the island having low virus cases and with very few day-to-day life restrictions.
