Karpaz Gate Marina: Karpaz Gate Marina Introduces New Berthing Incentives for 2019

Award-winning East Mediterranean haven draws boats to North Cyprus with 5-star facilities, superior service, technical expertise, low fuel prices and flexible berthing options

Karpaz Gate Marina in North Cyprus is announcing new berthing incentives and packages for 2019 as it strengthens its reputation as an East Mediterranean haven. Offering full-service capabilities, leisure facilities, premium service and safe berthing at attractive prices, the 5 Gold Anchor marina is introducing extra flexibility for long-term berth-holders and contract discounts for motor yachts to cover any fuel costs incurred during the trip to North Cyprus.

Harbour Master Bahadir Gökçetekin said: “Our 2019 packages, rates and full-service capabilities represent outstanding value for money. Not only do we have 5 Gold Anchor standard facilities and a dedication to meeting the individual needs of our clients with concierge services and more, we can also offer a stunning location that makes Karpaz Gate Marina a truly unique and idyllic environment to visit or to choose as a permanent home for your boat. In addition, we are a welcome escape from the bureaucracy and taxation issues affecting boat owners within the EU and in other regions. For any maintenance or specialist technical work, we are also on hand to provide a broad range of service and expertise.”

Berthing incentives for 2019 include the following options:*

  • Fuel costs incentives – New special offer will cover fuel costs for motor yachts from certain categories to ease the expense of the trip to North Cyprus, applied by a discount on the annual berthing price
  • New flexible packages - New annual and six-month packages provide the choice of berthing in the water or the dry dock during the contract
  • Free haul-out and anti-fouling packages – Free haul-out, anti-fouling, sanding and launch back service with 21 days hard-standing are all included within the annual contract price
  • Frozen contract packages – Special option to allow annual contract to be suspended for up to three months within the contract period
  • Stay for the weekend – New offer provides a week’s mooring for the price of 5 days
  • Extra savings – Discounts available for daily, weekly and 6-monthly and annual stays

Also new for 2019, Karpaz Gate Marina is streamlining its price list to simplify berthing for its clients. Replacing two sets of fees for the winter and summer season, the daily, weekly, monthly, six-monthly and annual fees are now consistent for the entire year. In addition, for boats over 9m, owners will get seven days’ berthing for the price of five.

The Karpaz Gate Marina Technical Centre continues to expand, meeting demand for a range of requests from maintenance work, to hull painting and teak replacement. Featuring a 300-ton capacity travel lift and 18,000 square metre dry dock area, the boat yard has increased its team of on-site specialists to include carpenters and painters and will take on more projects in 2019, plus servicing of engine and reduction gear, rudder systems and navigation equipment, and electrical work.

Located in one of the most untouched regions of the Mediterranean, Karpaz Gate Marina is demonstrating its commitment to protecting its surroundings with a renewed focus on the environment and wildlife. A strict no fishing policy implemented in 2018 has allowed fish and other sea life to thrive in the marina basin, all easy to view through the crystal-clear water.

An Official Port of Entry, Karpaz Gate Marina offers all its berth holders and visitors a sanctuary from most of the tax issues and bureaucratic procedures affecting boat owners within the EU and other regions. The marina has been exclusively designed to fulfil the needs of boat owners and is extremely safe and secure.

Karpaz Gate Marina caters for yachts up to 60m, with leisure facilities including the exceptional Karpaz Gate Marina Beach Club, with 33m infinity pool and watersports centre, Private Gallery Club, gym, children’s play area and Hemingway’s Resto-Bar.
