Work on Caroline Bay project continues
Work on the Caroline Bay resort on the Morgan’s Point property continues to progress with dozens of Bermudians on the job site.
According to Harold Conyers, the developer’s local representative for the project, 60 employees were on site last week constructing the luxury development, 48 of whom are Bermudian.
Meanwhile, the construction of a marina on the site continues to move forward with the project receiving a second shipment of armour rock on Friday.
The rock will be used to create the shoreline for the marina, dissipating the energy of storm waves and preventing the recession of backshore.
Craig Christensen, president and CEO, has said that the marina is on schedule to open in March 2017, in advance of the America’s Cup, and will be able to cater to yachts of unlimited length.
The developers hope that Caroline Bay Marina will not only assist with the influx of boats and yachts, but also attract and service larger yachts to the western end of the island.
“The launch of the marina for the superyachts programme has commenced and we are currently taking inquiries for those interested in securing a berth,” Mr Christensen said. “It is with great pleasure and overwhelming gratitude that I would like to announce that we are already taking bookings and have spots for about 33 mega boats, but due to the superior design, we can expand the marina to hold roughly about 40 berths if need be.”
Meanwhile, Ralph Richardson has come on board to serve as CEO of the Caroline Bay Marina, and will oversee the marketing of the marina and assist in filling the berths for America’s Cup.
A spokesperson for the Caroline Bay project said: “With each shipment and the continued support of the Bermuda Government, coupled with the people of Bermuda’s desire for this project to succeed, the Caroline Bay development will be one that the entire country can be proud of.
“Each stone that is put in place is one stone closer to Bermuda becoming the home of a luxury product, which will be a testament to the perseverance of the developers and the dedication of the people of Bermuda.”
