THE NEW IMPRESSIVE LIMASSOL MARINA
The New Limassol Marina is considered to be among the most important and luxurious marinas in the wider Mediterranean region and the Middle East. It has been described as the “Monte Carlo of Cyprus” and is comparable to Marina Grande in Capri and the Dubai Marina.
According to the French architect, Xavier Bohl, the marina plan was based on the Marina of Monte Carlo in Monaco model and Port Grimaud in St Tropez.
The Limassol Marina has a berthing capacity of 650 for vessels ranging from 8 to 115 metres in length along with 74 villas and 162 apartments, together with parking for 750 vehicles.
In addition there are 12 restaurants including Pyxida Fish Tavern, Wagamama, TGI Friday’s, Pizza Hut, KFC, Derlicious, Caffé Nero, Hobo Mediterraneo and Marina Cool Bar, Breeze Group’s Crystal Marina Lounge and one of Carob Mill’s restaurants, Calma Café.
A yacht club, shopping facilities, spa and fitness facilities all are now open and available to residents of the Marina from early till late.
Estimated to have cost around €300 million, the marina, is being managed under a BOT (Build-Operate-Transfer) agreement. Limassol Marina Ltd (LML), the joint venture company which owns the project, will manage the marina for 53 years and will retain profit rights for a further 37 years.
The new Limassol marina welcomed its first residents in 2014 and its facilities are open to both residents and guests locals and tourists.
