New superyacht marina planned for Hulhumalé in the Maldives

New superyacht marina planned for Hulhumalé in the Maldives

Land reclamation work has begun for a new yacht marina on Hulhumalé in the Maldives. Once completed Hulhumalé Yacht Marina will be capable of berthing up to 300 yachts.

The new marina is planned for the western side of the artificial island. More than 240 hectares of land was reclaimed last year and the revetment work is expected to be completed within the next three months.

The new development will also be home to retail shops, a yacht club that includes exhibition space, dry berth facilities and a boating dock. A new cruise terminal is also being built as part of the project.

Asia Pacific Superyachts Maldives has said that the new marina is “good news” for visiting superyachts.

The marina’s location close to the airport should make it a popular starting point for luxury yacht charters in the Maldives.

With a reputation for barefoot luxury and some of the best diving in the world, the Maldives attracts some of the world’s largest superyachts. Paul Allen’s Octopus was spotted in the Maldives over the Christmas period.

Hulhumalé is an extension of Malé and was created by building up 1.8sq km of reef. The project began in 1997 and when first-phase land is fully developed by 2020 it will accommodate 50,000 people.
