By Sue Richards — last modified Feb 19, 2013 08:42 PM
Karpaz Gate Marina has announced a unique berthing package for 2013 which includes free antifouling for boat owners berthing for more than six months and a free 13th month for those who book for a year.

After a successful first full year, 300-berth Karpaz Gate Marina is now offering exceptional facilities from berth and technical services to security systems. The luxury Northern Cyprus marina, which enjoys duty-free status, has fixed marina prices at 2012 rates.

The marina can accommodate vessels up to 55 metres, while boats up to 45 metres and with a beam of up 10 metres can be brought ashore for refit or antifouling.

Yard services are capable of handling a vast range of mechanical, electrical and general maintenance requirements, with a 300-ton travel lift – one of the largest in the region. The engineering and boat maintenance services include an 18,000 sq m dry dock for refit and repairs.

The full offer for boat owners staying for more than six months includes a free lift and launch, free hull wash with one month of free hard standing and two coats of free, professionally-applied antifouling.

The package also includes membership to Karpaz Gate Marina’s newly opened International Beach Club, adjacent to the marina, which has been completed well in time for the 2013 season with an opening party on Saturday, April 6. The impressive new club boasts a 33m Infinity Pool, private beach, children’s pool and play area and beach restaurant and bar, serving light meals, pizza and grill.

New Beach ClubNew Facilities for 2013

The season saw the arrival of the first superyachts to take advantage of the extensive new facilities and the tax-free environment. The duty-free status enjoyed by Karpaz, providing savings on fuel, technical service and supplies, produces substantial running cost savings for the yachts whilst they enjoy the best of the Eastern Mediterranean cruising.

Also completed this season are some of the most comprehensive security systems available in the Mediterranean. In addition to 24/7 CCTV monitoring, the marina uses a computerised system that is managed centrally from the marina office and enables individual key cards with unique codes to be provided to each boat owner, giving them secure access to the pontoon where their boat is berthed as well as free access to a wide range of leisure facilities.

In business since September 2012, Cyprus yachts on the main promenade offers sales and brokerage services and a number of well-known sail and motor boat dealerships, with a complete chandlery outlet also opening its doors in 2013.

Karpaz Gate Marina is a recognised port of entry and boasts an experienced marina team with multi-lingual and helpful staff to assist visitors.

A restaurant runs special nights throughout the year and there are also shopping facilities, gym, shower and laundry facilities.

Diving in North Cyprus

Visitors to Karpaz Gate Marina can also now experience the exceptional diving conditions on offer in North Cyprus after renowned local school Mephisto Diving moved to new premises at the marina. With the eastern tip of the Karpaz Peninsula providing some of the best diving in Cyprus, Mephisto can draw on some 10 years’ experience and knowledge of the area to guide both beginners and experienced divers from their new marina base.

The school was founded on North Cyprus in 2003 by Marion Buckmueller and has built up a strong reputation at its previous site at Yeni Erenkoy at Malibu Beach. Marion, who is a qualified Open Water Scuba instructor with PADI since 2000 and SSI since 2009, is originally German and speaks English, Turkish and French, as well as her native language.

With crystal clear water and an unspoilt landscape, Northern Cyprus has a reputation as one of the top new sailing destinations with the region known for its exceptional climate all year round. Visitors can experience the exceptional coastline, with miles of sandy beaches, coves and bays along the North East of the country.

The marina and yard facilities at Karpaz Gate Marina are operated by a single management company, enabling all facilities on water and ashore to be linked cost-effectively for the boat owner.

What Skippers say about us

The marina has received many positive comments from this year’s visiting yachts, including a US sailing yacht owner, who said: “We have visited 49 countries and as many marinas. KGM [Karpaz Gate Marina] is rated number one with us as one of the best marinas we have visited”, and from a 73-metre superyacht skipper, who commented: “Karpaz Marina gave a very warm welcome and a can-do attitude to all things possible on the beautiful northern part of Cyprus. Restaurant reservations, clearance formalities and tourist advice were spot on every time.”
