Opening Ayia Napa: a Cyprus dream come true NEWS FOCUS The long-awaited marina in the mixed use Ayia Napa development on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus finally opened to the public on 1 st June. When the entire development completes in 2023, the marina will complement luxury residences, world-class facilities and services for boaters, shops, restaurants and entertainment venues. Ayia Napa Marina is the dream become reality of Cypriot Jerry Caramondanis, working in partnership with prominent Egyptian investor Naguib Sawiris. Together, they envisaged a vibrant nautical hub and luxury resort. Stavros Caramondanis, son to Jerry and CEO of MM Makronisos Marina Ltd, the marina developer, sees a bright future. “Upon completion of the project, Ayia Napa Marina will constitute the jewel of the entire eastern Mediterranean region and be the ultimate maritime destination for leisure travellers and yachts,” he says. “Aside from shops, cafés, bars and restaurants, the groundwork is also being laid down for the organisation of high-calibre events geared towards both residents and marina visitors.” On the water Located on the southeast coast of Cyprus approximately 30 minutes east of Larnaca International Airport and 50 minutes from Limassol, the marina is named for the resort town of Ayia Napa – already a well-known holiday destination renowned for crystal clear seas and Blue Flag awarded beaches.

The bulk of the slips accommodate vessels up to 30m (98ft) in length but berthing is available for superyachts up to 85m (279ft). Opting for finger berths as opposed to the more traditional Med mooring system could start a new trend, believes John Spragg, Bellingham Marine president of Australasia and the Middle East. “This iconic marina will become the standard that other marinas in the Mediterranean aspire to meet. Once boaters use the finger mooring system, they will demand it elsewhere,” he says. – September/October 2020 35
