Berth expansion underway at Port Louis Marina in Grenada

ADVERTISEMENT

Camper & Nicholsons Marinas recently announced that a berth expansion project at Port Louis Marina on Grenada is halfway completed. Expansion at the popular cruising hub in the southern Caribbean includes 90 additional berths ranging from 39 to 72 feet (12-22m) on two new piers at the marina, which already has berthing for vessels up to 295 feet (90m).

The new berths are intended to accommodate an increase in visiting yachts, support the required space for international events hosted at the marina – such as the RORC Transatlantic Race, World Arcand Oyster World Rally – and increase options for long-lease berthing, according to the company. Also, the new pontoon layout and triple berths are designed to better accommodate catamarans.

Although Grenada lies south of the main hurricane belt, the marina’s new phase has been designed to handle Category 2 hurricane wind speeds, according to Mathieu Salomon, technical director at Camper & Nicholsons Marinas. Salomon also pointed out that the 16m and 18m fingers on Pier E have been given four mooring points each, and that U.S. and European electrical sockets will be installed on a number of the new berths.
