New marina opens in Chesapeake

The Cape Charles Yacht Center on the Chesapeake Bay officially opened on May 15. Specifically designed to accommodate megayachts, the yard includes 1,000 feet of dockage (with 1,000 to be added this summer) and 3-phase, 480-amp power. The channel is 18 feet deep and the facility is 12 miles from the Atlantic.


“The location along the Mid-Atlantic is strategic since we offer a deep, secure harbor with quick access to the Atlantic,” said Eyre Baldwin, partner with the Eastern Shore Land Company (ESLAND), which built the yard. “There are few places for these types of yachts to stop for service, repairs or to enjoy the area between New England and Miami. The proximity to the ocean is very convenient but we also offer a charming destination on Virginia’s Eastern Shore.”


The Cape Charles Yacht Center includes a marina, 120-acre maintenance and storage area, 75-ton boat lift, 300-ton lift in process, and a fuel station. Chesapeake Marine Systems is the designated operator for maintenance and boat supplies.


The yard is working to make it so that yachts can clear customs when they arrive in Cape Charles.
