The Marina at Christophe Harbour reports a nearly 60% growth in private and charter yachts visiting the beautiful St Kitts and Nevis yacht charter vacation destination. The first season at the five star Caribbean superyacht marina has been a huge success.
St Kitts and Nevis has hosted 134 yachts of more than 100 feet in the Federation’s waters, proving that it is quickly establishing itself as a popular destination for superyachts visiting the Caribbean. These numbers match the anticipated 20 percent year-over-year growth of the superyacht industry in St Kitts and Nevis, and its popularity is only expected to grow, thanks to its untouched cruising grounds and convenient distance from plenty of neighbouring Caribbean islands.
The first season’s visitors to Christophe Harbour comment: “The dock itself is terrific. It’s big, safe and has all the necessary services. Again, the marina staff were extremely helpful and assisted with both docking and support.”
“The reason we wanted to take our boat to Christophe Harbour was to try it out as a base for exploring that area. We have enjoyed Antigua, St Barths, St Kitts and the neighbouring islands many times but . . . they have lacked a really good protected anchorage. Christophe Harbour changes all that. It’s a fabulous, well protected base close to some beautiful, unspoilt and very historic islands.”
“The place is beautiful, the people are great, and we now have a destination between destinations in the Leewards.”
Since its inauguration mid-February, The Marina at Christophe Harbour has hosted 46 yachts larger than 80 feet in length, marking an amazingly positive beginning. These yachts took advantage of the many benefits of the marina’s facilities, comprising reduced bunkering fees, expedited customs clearance, a purpose-built turning basin, complimentary high speed WiFi, as well as custom state-of-the-art power pedestals.
