Nanny Cay adds dockage


The new outer marina at Nanny Cay in Tortola, BVI, opened in mid-December with 42 slips along the mangrove-lined shore. The final 78 slips are expected to be in place by August. When completed, the outer marina will have 120 slips suitable for yachts up to 75 feet with T-heads and a bulkhead capable of berthing megayachts up to 150 feet. Up to 10 yachts over 100 feet can now dock at Nanny Cay.

The first half of the outer marina has a controlling depth of 14 feet, the second half, 10 feet. It will almost double Nanny Cay’s total dock facilities to 300 slips split between the inner and outer marina.

In addition to the new marina facilities and some new condos, the expansion will include new and enhanced walkways and recreational areas; a new restaurant, wellness center, gym, and social areas; an improved youth sailing center; improved resort areas and event facilities; and new commercial retail and service space.

Previous improvements include a high-speed fuel dock; new docks; 120/220V electricity on all docks with 100 percent site-wide backup power; luxury shower facilities and restrooms; water from Nanny Cay’s R/O plant; the BVI’s only pump-out station; waste oil storage unit and emergency trap; and wastewater treatment system for the haulout area.

Since construction started in July 2015, 100,000 tons of rock has been placed and 160,000 cubic yards of dredged material has been moved, to create the peninsula.
