Camper & Nicholsons Marinas has announced that the berthing expansion project at Port Louis Marina in Grenada is now complete. 

The Grenada Tourism Authority recently met with the Port Louis Marina team to open the new pontoons in a ribbon-cutting ceremony celebrating the expanded facilities, which include 90 new berths ranging from 39 feet (12m) to 72 feet (22m) on two new piers. The new berths will help meet the demand for space during the international events hosted at the marina, including the RORC Transatlantic Race, World Arc, and Oyster World Rally, along with regional boat and charter shows, according to a company press release. 

The Grenada Tourism Authority recently joined the Port Louis Marina team to open the new pontoons in a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

According to Mathieu Salomon, technical director at Camper & Nicholsons Marinas, the new phase has been designed to handle CAT 2 hurricane wind speeds. Attention was given to the 16m and 18m fingers on Pier E, with four mooring points per finger. Triple berths are built into the design to address the increasing demand of catamaran berths. Also, dual-frequency electrical sockets (U.S. and European) are being installed on a number of the new berths. 

Camper & Nicholsons Port Louis Marina has berthing for vessels up to 295 feet (90m).

Grenada lies south of the main hurricane belt. Port Louis Marina, which overlooks the capital of St. Georges and the waterfront of the Carenage, is designed to reflect the traditional Creole architecture. It affords a base from which to explore the Grenadines and the Windward Islands.
