Featuring an 18,000 square metre dry dock and 300-ton capacity travel hoist and service pedestals, the Karpaz Gate Marina boatyard is currently carrying out major projects and renewal work for superyachts, as well as refit, repairs and season preparation service projects.

A comprehensive selection of heavy duty tools and equipment are available in the boatyard, including hydraulic work platforms, welding equipment, cutting equipment, high capacity compressors and mobile cranes.

Experienced and capable staff are on site to conduct and execute any scope of project, while the duty-free status at the marina provides extra benefits for clients with savings on spare parts, fuel, technical service and supplies.

Marina Technical Manager Efe Karahan Sahin said: “The Karpaz Gate Marina boatyard is the premier option in the region for boat owners who require major repair and refit projects.

“We have been able to take on many more big projects this year, including a major steel plates renewal project for a Benetti motoryacht which involved multiple tasks such as welding and electric works, carpentry and paint applications. We also worked on another major repair on a Moonen 58 motoryacht which again involved steel plates renewal, along with interior redesign works. In addition, we continue to provide seasonal services to numerous clients.

“We have comprehensive engineering and boat maintenance services, including our travel lift which is capable of lifting vessels up to 45 metres and with a beam of up 10 metres, including catamarans. Duty-free Euro Diesel and gasoline is also available.”

Berthing packages at Karpaz Gate Marina for this year include free dry dock services for specific maintenance and repair work, including lift and launch and anti-fouling. Regular technical work on offer at the boatyard also includes hull cleaning and sanding, changing anodes, cleaning of shafts and anodes, plus the application of primer.

The success of the boatyard further enhances the reputation of the three-year-old development as one of the most well-equipped and modern marinas in the Eastern Mediterranean.

Harbour Master Deniz Akaltan added: “The recent successes involving our technical services and marine engineers proves again that we have a unique capability to service mega yachts in the highest and most professional standard.

“We are really proud of all our experienced marine engineers and the facilities and equipment we have on site here. The set-up we have is unmatched in the area and we are confident we can cater for a huge range of vessels, working closely with owners to carry out the specific work needed on their boats.

“The dry dock area has been very sympathetically built, with a lot of consideration given to keeping it separate from the rest of the marina to maintain the atmosphere of the promenade and beach club area.”
