“After five years of development, we are very pleased to announce the soft opening of Golfito Marina Village & Resort,” David Johnson, the marina sales director, tells SuperyachtNews.
Golfita Marina Village & Resort is nestled within the ocean-side town of Golfito, Costa Rica, one of the most ecologically diverse regions, and will offer the largest superyacht berths on the entire West Coast of Central America.
“We have more exciting news to follow, but for now, the marina can receive yachts of all sizes and is able to provide fuel on its 80.8m (265ft) fuel dock as of 1 March,” continues Johnson. “We are also proud to announce that the first yacht to stay at the marina was the well-known 57m Feadship build, Halo, which was launched in 2015.”
While there are still additions to make to the capacity of the marina, as of 1 March, it can offer: 14 berths for 12.2m (40ft) vessels; 12 berths for 18.3m (60ft) vessels; six berths for 21.3m (70ft) vessels; three berths for 27.4m (90ft) vessels; one berth for a 45.7m (150ft) vessel; and two berths for 107m (350ft) vessels, or multiple 50m vessels. Under the 100m berths, the marina has a controlled depth of 7.6m (25ft) at low tide.
There are finger berths for sale from 12.2m to 30.5m, and five 100m berths and one 110m berth also for sale – all of which are side-to berths.
The marina has been designed to cater to the exacting standards of today’s superyacht owners and charterers, with state-of-the-art facilities on site, such as 4K internet, a crew activity centre, pump-out facilities at the dock and the best shore power pedestals on the market.
The fuel dock will also have 90,000 gallons of fuel at the dock – enough to fill a 120m Navy vessel, which no other marina in the world can do.
The marina village will be ready for tenants to move in no later than 1 May. The shops at the marina village – comprising three restaurants, a coffee shop, chandlery and a variety of other shops – are the current construction focus, with its first floor complete and second floor nearing completion.
