Christophe Harbour in St. Kitts hosts grand opening

Christophe Harbour in St. Kitts is having its grand opening this weekend. The marina has space for yachts up to 300 feet and welcomed its first yacht in December. Capt. Scott Fratcher of the 90-foot charter yacht M/Y Orion is there this weekend and said the marina “completes the triangle between Antigua, St. Maarten and, now, St. Kitts.” (See photos on the-triton.com.)

Not to miss out, construction is expected to start this month on a new marina on Nevis, Tamarind Cove in Cades Bay on the northwestern end of the island. The project takes over the existing Seabridge pier and plans to add about 100 slips to the north of it and 45-50 slips to the south.

Slip lengths will be flexible but should accommodate yachts to at least 150 feet; one face dock can fit 300 feet of yacht. The channel is 14 feet deep; the turning basin is 15 feet.

To get the project under way, about 25 percent of the slips will be available for sale, said Adrian Dozier, director of Tamarind Cove Marina Development. It should be complete in 14 months, he said.
