Port Louis Marina set to expand

Port Louis Marina in Grenada, which currently has 160 berths for vessels of up to 295 feet (90m), plans to add two new piers with 90 berths, ranging from 39 feet (12m) to 72 feet (22m), according to owner and manager Camper & Nicholsons Marinas.

Pontoon manufacturer Marinetek has been hired to begin the project this spring, with the new berths expected to be ready for use by August.

“We have seen a greater interest in large catamarans visiting our marina and anticipate this trend in the Caribbean to grow even further,” stated Glynn Thomas, Port Louis Marina general manager. “The new pontoon layout will enable us to accommodate more of the catamarans and give us greater flexibility for small to mid-sized boats all year round.”

According to the company, the expansion will provide required space for the marina’s hosting of international events such as the RORC Transatlantic Race, World Arc, and Oyster World Rally, as well as regional boat and charter shows. It will also increase long-lease berthing options at the marina.
