Caroline Bay next big charter’ for superyachts
The Caroline Bay marina project has been tipped as the next big berthing destination for superyacht owners.
The luxury development at the Morgan’s Point property, scheduled to open in March ahead of the America’s Cup, will bring an influx of yachts to the western side of the island.
While attending the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show last week, Caroline Bay Marina principal and director Craig Christensen and Ralph Richardson, the marina’s new chief executive officer, were interviewed by the online magazine Superyachts.com.
The magazine said Bermuda is shaping up to become “the next big charter and berthing destination for superyacht owners”.
Mr Richardson told the publication: “It’s been years since there’s been a major marina development in Bermuda and this is the largest that’s ever taken place. This will be the first time there will be a multi-facility for superyachts. We’ll be able to take about 30 to 40 superyachts at our site and we’re really excited.”
Mr Christensen said: “We are actually putting it on the map. We’re really helping to reposition Bermuda working with the tourism authority with the view of becoming a real high-end destination, and that’s what we’re becoming now.”
