New fuel farm installed for superyachts at Christophe Harbour in St Kitts

A state-of-the-art fuel farm has been announced as the next innovation at Christophe Harbour in St Kitts. This latest move to establish the harbour as an international superyachting hub will ensure that vessels up to 85 metres in length will be able to re-fuel, and for approximately 10 cents less per US gallon than the local average.

After announcing the launch of a luxury runway to marina service in September last year, the new fuelling services come as an exciting addition to Christophe Harbour’s increasing wealth of offerings in St Kitts. The capacity of the on-site tank is 48,000 US gallons, meaning Christophe Harbour will be able to offer 40,000 US gallons of tax and duty exempt fuel a day for vessels.

Since the St Kitts Christophe Harbour officially opened last year, there has been a marked increase in the number of superyachts visiting St Kitts. It is hoped that the new facilities will encourage even more private yachts and luxury yacht charters to visit St Kitts.

"Fuel is one of the primary outgoings for any yacht owner and finding a reliable, convenient, high-quality and economical place to refuel is something at the top of every captain's list," said director of yachting at Christophe Harbour Aeneas Hollins. "Our new fuel farm will deliver top grade fuel, quickly, for significantly less than other traditional Caribbean hubs."

Built and operated to USA environmental and construction standards, the fuel farm features high-end hydrant connection and nozzle dispensing options, a state-of-the-art leak detection system with remote monitoring technology, automatic in-tank water intrusion detection system and a unique online dual-filtration system at the pump manifold for diesel vessel deliveries. Aiming for efficiency and a completely polished superyacht-ready service, the marina’s refuelling options will allow for a sleek and streamlined process.
