Glossy Bay Marina is Canouan's newest Gem! It is a new Super Yacht Marina with 110 berths
120 Berth Marina including 24 Super Yacht Berths for Yachts Up to 300 Feet
Glossy Bay Marina, which is located in the south of the island next to Canouan Airport, features 120 berths, including 24 superyacht berths which can accommodate yachts of between 100 and 300 feet in length.
The state-of-the-art marina was developed by Irish businessman and financier Dermot Desmond, who recently developed ultra-luxury resort the Pink Sands Club and has reportedly invested US $60 million in the marina project.
Glossy Bay Marina to Raise Profile of Yachting, Travel & Real Estate in the Grenadines
Designed in a striking architectural style, Glossy Bay Marina is expected to transform Canouan into a yachting hub for the southern Caribbean, as well as raise the profile of the Grenadines as a luxury vacation destination.
According to Mr Desmond: “I think our ambition and our plan is to create a marina set in botanical gardens and having a building here that will be one of the outstanding features in the Grenadines, that will be welcoming, architecturally brilliant and also will be a place the folks must come and visit on this beautiful island.”
Bob Hathaway, Manager of Glossy Bay Marina, added: “When full, Glossy Bay Marina will act as a host to nearly a thousand yachts people, professional crew, charter guests and owners. That is the equivalent of a 500-room hotel, bigger than anything else in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Let us plan to work together to make this project a success for both its investors and the nation.”
The marina’s opening is also expected to provide a boost to the market for real estate in the Grenadines and Canouan, as well as nearby islands including Bequia, Palm Island and Mustique.
