Marina in Cyprus to Cash in on Italian Yachts Fleeing Tax Crackdown

With the Italian Government’s tax crackdown on yacht owners, causing mass migration from many Italian marinas, Karpaz Gate Marina in Northern Cyprus has offered to provide a home port for those owners looking for a new location to safely and conveniently berth their yachts in the Eastern Mediterranean with the advantage of substantial cost savings.
The newly opened marina has duty-free status and as such offers highly competitively priced berthing in the Eastern Mediterranean as well as duty-free fuel and top class maintenance and engineering services.
The marina provides berthing arrangements for yachts up to 55 metres. It also benefits from a new travel lift accommodating up to 300 tons, including multihulls with a beam of up to 10 metres.
A chandlery is set to open in the next few weeks alongside brokerage and other services.
Harbour Master Deniz Akaltan commented: “We would like to extend our winter berthing package to all those owners who feel the Italian marinas are no longer a viable proposition. Northern Cyprus has long been known to have the best winter weather in the Mediterranean”
With direct flights to Cyprus from airports throughout Italy, access is easy and on arrival, visitors will receive a warm welcome from fellow Italian Cristiana Santoiemma the marina office manager.
