Karpaz Gate Marina to become the best in eastern Mediterranean

Karpaz Gate Marina is currently being constructed by Sea-Alliance Group Ltd, a maritime services operation specialising in marina developments according to Britain’s All At Sea Newspaper is to be “enhanced significantly to provide the very best repair and refit facilities in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC).”

This facility will open up the Karpas for marine visitors and bring additional economic benefits for the development of this area. All vessels based at or visiting the marina will have access to a 18,000sqm dry dock for refit and repairs aided by a 300 tonne crane instead of the 180 tonne crane originally planned. This crane is larger than most found on the Turkish coast and is the biggest in the TRNC.

Roy Klajman, Managing Director of Sea-Alliance Group Ltd, says: “it has always been a priority for the owner and managers of Karpaz Gate Marina to offer world-class facilities. Improving the repair and refit facilities beyond our original plans is an important part of that strategy. Visiting superyacht and megayacht owners will have access to the largest and best possible maintenance facilities in the eastern Mediterranean and we anticipate that this will be a big draw for visitors.”

The marina is set to be completed in Spring 2011 and is currently on time. More than 400m of the 650m of breakwater is now complete and 90m of the 150m the second breakwater is complete. These will ensure a sheltered environment for yachts requiring either an eastern Mediterranean home port or visiting berth.
