Gib OKs berths, apartments

Government permission has been granted for new superyacht berths and short-stay and rental apartments in Marina Bay at Ocean Village in Gibraltar.

“Our marina sees superyachts on a regular basis, but usually just for short periods of time or for fuel stops,” said Neil Crawford, director of Ocean Village. “Only recently a superyacht fuelled in Gibraltar but then continued up the coast to Puerto Banus, a marina with arguably outdated infrastructure, where the owners spent 300,000 euros in one shop. Main Street retailers and other Gibraltar businesses will relish being on the receiving end of this kind of investment from the superyacht industry.”

The Marina Bay masterplan outlines 10 stern-to berths with secure access, an office to include crew lounge, pump-out facilities, improved electricity supplies, spa-style facilities, as well as storage, workshop and laundry services. The promenade will be enhanced with landscaping and a tower open to the public, while cameras will be in place for security.
