Construction is underway at a new superyacht marina in Golfito, Costa Rica and the first phase will be completed and ready for yachts by the Autumn. Once finished the new marina at Golfito Marina Village and Resort will be able to accommodate yachts up to 106 metres.
The marina is located within the gulf of Golfo Duce, making the marina immune from the swells of the Pacific Ocean. With a six-inch tidal range, a current that rarely exceeds 1.5 knots and winds that average five to seven knots, the marina offers a safe environment at all times.
The developers are keen to create a luxury destination for private yachts and luxury yacht charters in Costa Rica, which is also environmentally friendly. The marina has partnered with the SeaKeepers Society to help facilitate marine research. The charity will have a constant presence on site with a 12 metre “Wet Lab” container in place for scientists to study the local marine environment.
The main constructor of the marina is GatorDock, a Crane Materials International (CMI) company.
“The marina will feature our GatorDock Full-Float: a marine-grade, aluminum dock with concrete decking,” said Matt Hasseler, international sales director for CMI. “Those floating docks will support mega yachts up to and exceeding 106 metres in length.
“This marina will be a one-of-a-kind. Golfito is surrounded by some of the world’s most scenic landscapes and some of the world’s best sport fishing.”
