More Bomb Site Than Superyacht Marina


Looking more like a bomb site than a superyacht harbour the first section of the 300-acre marina and mega yacht harbour, part of the much delayed Christophe Harbour project on the St. Kitts’ Southeast peninsula will receive its first superyacht during a ceremony scheduled for 9th December.

The Perini Navi Ketch Andromeda da la Rea is expected to dock there at 4pm

The marina, when completed will accommodate small craft as well as larger yachts ranging from 25 to 100 metres in length.

All vessels will be able to utilise the marina’s facilities and services while yacht owners, captains and their guests will have access to a private club, a full concierge and hospitality services. Christophe Harbour will be a designated port of entry with streamlined Customs and Immigration services.

The bay is a marine sanctuary which will remain free of boat moorings to ensure sea life and property views are protected.

Recently, St. Kitts and Nevis’ Director of Maritime Affairs, Mr. McClean Hobson said he was pleased with the developments taking place in the growing yachting industry in the twin-island federation.

Speaking at the launching ceremony of the National Yachting Policy he noted that the first phase of the Christophe Harbour Marina was nearing completion and would accommodate the first yacht on the 9th December employing at least 21 workers for the marina operations by mid-December.
