Not All Marinas are Created Equal
Whether island-hopping in a small craft or crossing open waters in a superyacht, every discerning yachtsman faces the challenge of finding a homeport that can satisfy his or her diverse needs.
The “location, location, location” real estate mentality shouldn’t be abandoned just because the investment can weigh anchor and sail to a new port. Choosing the right home for a vessel can be as challenging as choosing the right boat.
A key factor is proximity to the most desirable destinations and cruising grounds. Couple this with ease of access by alternate transportation, and the decision gets a little harder. Take into account dock layout, slip size, dinghy space, privacy, and your neighbor’s docking skills, and the equation gets even more complicated. And all this doesn't even factor in what the most selective yachtsman is looking for—high levels of security, expert services, and exclusive amenities.
Elite seafarers looking to drop anchor in the Caribbean should seriously consider Christophe Harbour. Located between Antigua and St. Maarten in the heart of the eastern Caribbean on St. Kitts, Christophe Harbour is the area’s most appealing luxury resort development, featuring unspoiled beaches, deep blue waters, and lush tropical landscapes complemented by upscale amenities and cutting-edge facilities, including alongside berthing, in-slip fueling, and a private jet terminal just 15 minutes from the dock.
The centerpiece of this luxe community is a superyacht marina and village. Created by an internationally acclaimed developer, The Marina at Christophe Harbour is built with discriminating yachtsman and the world’s largest superyachts in mind. This destination marina features protected entry, a safe inner harbor, and a professionally engineered, state-of-the-art dock designed to accommodate the world’s largest vessels. The first phase of the marina is now open, with 24 superyacht berths available to house vessels from 85 to 300 feet in length.
Once docked, world-wise mariners will have lots of options for enjoying leisure at the harbor’s edge, drinks at SALT Plage, and fine dining at The Pavilion beach club. Also in development are ultra-luxurious accommodations at the Park Hyatt hotel, the sure-to-be-legendary Tom Fazio golf course, and dazzling nightlife inside the marina village. And when it’s time to leave, the YU Lounge private air terminal offers an expedited VIP experience for departures and the next arrival.
For vessels looking for homeport options, Christophe Harbour offers freehold slip ownership. Unlike the traditional leasehold model, the investor owns the slip in perpetuity, and the purchase is eligible for the country’s Citizenship by Investment Program, one of the oldest of its kind in the world.
At Christophe Harbour, the berth is much more than a place to dock a boat; it is a final destination anyone would be happy to call home.
