Karpaz Gate Offers Sanctuary from Tax Issues

Karpaz Gate

Karpaz Gate Marina in Northern Cyprus caters for yachts up to 60m and comes complete with crew pleasing leisure facilities.

Now the award-winning marina’s location in North Cyprus is providing yacht owners with a real sanctuary from tax issues and bureaucratic procedures highlighting its unique status as a real yacht haven for Superyacht owners in the Mediterranean.

The Five Gold Anchor-rated marina and boat yard is positioned to offer all its berth holders and visitors a sanctuary from most of the tax issues and bureaucratic procedures affecting boat owners within the EU and in other regions.

Ideally located for exploring the Eastern Mediterranean, the award-winning marina on the northern shore of the Karpaz peninsula is offering a range of personalised packages, incentives, and attractive servicing and berthing rates in 2018 as it strengthens its status as one of the region’s leading Superyacht full-service facilities.

The marina is an unmissable destination for a short to medium-term visit for boat owners from nearby Turkey, and for sailors or charter companies cruising in the region who are interested in exploring the beautiful Karpaz Peninsula and other North Cyprus attractions.

In addition, the official Port of Entry offers a convenient facility for boat owners in the region who require repair or maintenance work to be carried out or who need to fill up with fuel. The boatyard features a 300-ton capacity travel lift and 18,000 square metre dry dock and can execute or organise any scope of project and specialist work.

Karpaz Gate Marina has been exclusively designed to fulfil the needs of boat owners and is extremely safe and secure, while offering exceptional value for money.

New for 2018, annual berth-holders who renew their contracts will now be rewarded with a special renewal discount on the published yearly rate.

The marina is also extending a unique and popular package for boat owners offering free haul out, hull wash, anti-fouling application and 14 days hard standing included in the annual price. Alternatively, annual berth holders can choose the option of up to a 40% discount instead of the haul out.*

Additional VIP packages include a Frozen Contract, which offers discounted annual mooring with the right to freeze an annual contract for up to 3 months at one time only during the contract period. Special care, winterising and de-winterising packages are also offered to check equipment and clean exterior and interior areas in the owner’s absence.

Deniz Akaltan, Karpaz Gate Marina Harbour Master, said: “In a time when boat owners and sailors in the Mediterranean are facing increasing bureaucracy and taxation issues, Karpaz Gate Marina offers a real sanctuary. We can provide a number of benefits because of our unique location in this untouched corner of the Mediterranean. Karpaz Gate Marina is free from tax, outside of the EU yet geographically within its borders, free from complicated official paperwork, flexible on duration of stay and free from other irritating issues for relaxation-seeking boat owners. With a strong community spirit and service-orientated marina team, we believe boat owners can find a safe home and a welcome haven here in North Cyprus.”

Akaltan added: “We believe our 2018 packages and rates provide outstanding value for money for the full-service capability, stunning location and attention to detail we can offer our berth-holders. We are a one-stop shop for boat owners, with a capable technical service centre, safe and hassle-free mooring, 24/7 security and first-class leisure facilities, all set in an untouched and peaceful location on the Karpaz Peninsula. We are really excited to welcome old friends and new clients to Karpaz Gate Marina in 2018.”
