Karpaz Gate Marina (KGM), part of the newly created Karpaz Bay Resort in Northern Cyprus, will host the 2012 Eastern Mediterranean Yacht Rally (EMYR) yachts. This will be the second time that the superyacht marina team has welcome the annual rally, with around 60 yachts sailing around the highlights of the Eastern Mediterranean.
The yacht owners and guests participating in the rally will arrive at Karpaz Gate Marina on June 5th and will depart on June 6th. During their time at Karpaz, they will have access to all the marina facilities, be provided with designated berthing free of charge, and a welcoming party is being arranged.
Since the rally previously visited the marina in June 2011, the development has moved on significantly. Now all aspects of the marina, promenade, marina buildings and dry dock are complete, and more facilities are available to visitors including a mini supermarket, children’s play area, and gym. The marina is now also an official port of entry to the region, and visitors can take advantage of duty-free fuel. Hauling out and over-wintering facilities at the dry dock are also on offer.
Roy Klajman, Director of Sea-Alliance Group, the marina management company, said: “It is our pleasure to once again host the EMYR, and we look forward to welcoming the participants at the marina. We received fantastic feedback from them when they visited in June 2011, and now that we have made significant progress since their last visit, we are confident that they will be even more delighted with what they find at Karpaz this time.”
Karpaz Gate Marina is the country’s first-ever luxury marina and is located on the stunning Karpaz Peninsula in the north-eastern tip of Northern Cyprus. It offers 300 berths including 15 berths for super yachts and mega yachts up to a maximum of 60 metres in length.
The EMYR began last weekend (22 April) and will visit 18 marinas and ports during its 38 day duration.
