With up to 650 berths for yachts up to 110 metres in size, the Marina has enough space and top-tier amenities for everyone. The place provides first-class full service and the best that on-sea living can offer, and here we find out exactly what the Marina has in store:

Complete lifestyle

Not only have the modern and world-class facilities won awards such as the Blue-flag and 5 Gold Anchor Platinum for the area’s development, but it has all been aimed at providing visiting superyacht owners and crew with a complete lifestyle offering. The thriving commercial village with its lively bars and restaurants are perfectly positioned on the sea, as well as designer boutiques, shops, spa, fitness centre and a sandy beach. For those who prefer to stay longer, luxury real estate opportunities are available. The Marina’s ready-to-move-in exclusive villas and apartments on the sea also come with private berths or direct access to the beach.

Year-round entertainment

With the help of the dedicated on-site concierge service and attractive year-round berthing packages, everyone on board can make the most of being in Limassol. Plus, it doesn’t matter what time of the year a superyacht visits, the Marina guarantees there will be some sort of entertainment suitable for everyone. The year-round programme of activities, variety of events and concerts are held at the Marina’s cultural centre and glitzy main square. These modern conveniences and amenities are not just for owner’s, charters, their family and friends, but also for the crew.

Expert management

Thanks to the expert management by Francoudi & Stephanou Marinas, the Marina has remained a leading Mediterranean destination for visiting superyachts. As part of the service, berths are served by the latest in fibre-optic and WiFi services, 24/7 security provision, integrated waste management facilities and much more.

For those superyachts who could do with a spot of R&R, an in-house boatyard for light repairs and maintenance on tenders and toys is accessed by a private slipway or the marina’s 100-ton travel lift and two large capacity floating dry-docks are located within a nautical mile of the marina. A dedicated team of friendly, experienced service professionals can also help both in and around the Marina for a complete, full-service package and unparalleled winter berthing experience for any superyacht.

Cosmopolitan city

Boasting the warmest winter climate in Europe, Limassol is a cosmopolitan city with plenty going on. The subtropical Mediterranean weather provides an extended cruising season from May to November – making Limassol popular all year round. Plus, the area’s fascinating history with pulsating nightlife, tantalising gastronomy and high-end shopping all make for a memorable trip. If that’s not enough, long sandy beaches, mountains, traditional Cypriot villages, ancient landmarks, adventure sports and wineries can all be found nearby.
