The island of Cyprus continues to gain popularity as a yacht charter destination. Karpaz Gate Marina (KGM) is a new luxury marina in northern Cyprus. It is scheduled to open in early June, 2011.
Sea-Alliance Group is the marina’s management team. They have announced there will be visiting yachts participating in the Eastern Mediterranean Yacht Rally (EMYR).
EMYR is an annual event. It attracts 55 to 60 sailing yachts. They travel around major ports of call in the Eastern Mediterranean.
Yacht owners and sailing yacht customers will be the first visitors to use the marina. It is 90% complete at this time. Crew and guests will enjoy exclusive access to the facilities at KGM. Berthing will be free of charge. The marina is planning an evening of entertainment, including a welcoming party with local dignitaries.
Karpaz Gate Marina is the first luxury marina built in Cyprus, and a component of the new Karpaz Bay Resort (KBR). Located on the stunning Karpaz Peninsula in the north-eastern tip of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, Karpaz Gate Marina has 300 berths, including 12 berths for superyachts up to a maximum of 55 metres in length.
KGM should become an attractive destination for day and weekend trips, and where both large and small boats, and long- and short-term visitors, will be equally welcome. The management team has recently announced the opening of a beach club, scheduled to open in late 2011.
The resort will also include a children’s playground, a gym, restaurants, hotel, and a food and provisioning market. Onsite services will include a yacht brokerage, ship chandlery, sailing school, and a SCUBA diving center.
