Bahamas’ Valentines marina upgrades complete, ready for season

Valentines Residences Resort and Marina, the largest marina complex on Harbour Island in The Bahamas, has completed several updates to its state-of-the-art facility including a newly installed marina relay protection switch that ensures a stable supply of electricity to visiting boats.

Valentines came through Hurricanes Irma and Maria with no damage and its marina is fully operational and ready to receive guests for the winter yachting season, the resort announced in a news release.

Valentines Marina

Valentines’ marina has 51 transient slips, 33 of which are over 80 feet with 7 feet of draft. Several slips have a 9-foot draft and the marina has accommodated vessels up to 204 feet. The full-service marina offers diesel fuel service, full electric, unlimited fresh RO water, wireless internet access, and nighttime security. Additional amenities include a 41-room resort, Valentines Dive Center, spa, coffee shop, retail shop, fitness center, conference boardroom, and both indoor and outdoor dining.

“It’s been a challenging few months for marinas in the Caribbean, many of which have been severely damaged by Hurricanes Irma and Maria” said Dean Spychalla, vice president and managing director of Valentines. “Thankfully, Valentines not only came away unharmed, but we even made new improvements to our facility. We invite owners and yacht charter brokers who normally travel to Caribbean islands affected by the recent hurricanes to stay with us this season.”

Valentines is the winner of The Best Marina in The Bahamas from the World Travel Awards and is a proud member of the Association of Bahamas Marinas. For more information, visit www.valentinesresort.com and click on “marina”.
