Miami megayacht marina Deep Harbour officially opens

Jan 8, 2016 by Dorie Cox

The skyline of Miami and M/Y What a Country provided the backdrop for the official opening of Deep Harbour, the marina section of Island Garden on Watson Island this afternoon, Jan. 8.

City officials, industry leaders and invited guests listened to speeches from the property’s concept architect, Eric Kuhne of CivicArts; Island Gardens’ developer Mehmet Bayraktar, chairman/CEO, Flagstone Property Group; Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado and Miami Commissioner Wifredo “Willy” Gort.

“This has been built for a love of the yachting life,” Bayraktar said. “It’s a great feeling.”

Guests walked through the lounge, waterfront dock and recently completed yacht docks where the marina’s first annual contract, M/Y What a Country, a 121-foot Benetti Classic, tied-up for the rope-cutting ceremony.

Several yachts are expected to be on display at Deep Harbour for the upcoming Yachts Miami Beach show which runs Feb. 11-15.
