WORLD NEWS Hurricane Hole rebuild on schedule BAHAMAS: Sterling Global Financial, developer, manager and owner of Hurricane Hole Superyacht Marina at Paradise Landing on Paradise Island reports significant headway with construction. The master-planned yachting village and marina is scheduled for completion by the end of 2021, and Bellingham Marine has been selected to supply and install the floating concrete dock system. The completely rebuilt marina will feature slips of up to 420ft (128m) within a total of 6,100 linear feet (1,860m) of deep-water floating and fixed concrete docks. The sea walls are designed to reduce wake and wave action in all conditions. David Kosoy, executive chairman and founder of Sterling Global described the project as a new dimension in yachting in the Bahamas and luxury living on Paradise Island. “With great respect for Hurricane Hole’s place in the rich history of Paradise Island and the Bahamas, we are committed to redeveloping this famous marina into a premier yachting destination and a place for the community to enjoy,” he said. As a five-star destination and home port, the marina will provide 24- hour security, on-site Customs and Immigration services, 400-amp, 480- volt power, fuel and pump-out service, laundry, shower and dressing room facilities. Paradise Landing will include luxury dockside residences, world-class retail, fine dining and extensive amenities designed for owners, guests and yacht crew. Other amenities include waterfront bars and restaurants, a gourmet grocery store, executive office suites, yacht provisioning, wine and liquor superstore with dockside delivery, a luxury day spa and nail salon, fullservice gym, a dry cleaner, bank, executive office space, medical clinic and pharmacy. Slip owners also have access to the world-renowned Atlantis Resort, which is just 120 steps away, offering 40 restaurants and bars, luxury shopping, a waterpark and casino. Additional features include in-dock cable for high-speed internet, golf cart rental, boat detailing and interior cleaning. A separate pool, lounge and gym complex has been developed exclusively for yacht captains and crew. The Residences at Paradise Landing will feature two and three-bedroom layouts with contemporary design floorto-ceiling windows. All have waterfront views. Steve Ryder, senior project development manager at Bellingham Marine, said: “We are looking forward to delivering a superior product that will attract yacht owners and crew for many years to come. Our tested and timeproven construction methods combined with advancements in materials and an appreciation for value engineering are the foundation of our award-winning projects.” Extra boost for South Coast portfolio UK: Premier Marinas has purchased Universal Marina on the River Hamble for an undisclosed sum. It now owns and operates ten marinas on the English south coast. Set in tranquil surroundings on the east bank of the River Hamble, close to Premier’s Swanwick Marina, Universal Marina provides 240 walk ashore marina pontoon berths, a 130 boat drystack facility and a full-service boatyard, including a 75 tonne travel hoist. The site is also home to an onsite café and restaurant and has a thriving tenant community with around 30 marine and non-marine commercial tenants housed in approximately 6,300m² (68,000ft²) of commercial buildings. Premier CEO, Pete Bradshaw, commented: “We are delighted with the purchase of Universal Marina and are looking forward to integrating the site into the Premier Marinas group. Universal Marina complements our existing portfolio and adds to our already successful operation at Swanwick Marina. We take a long term approach to the ownership of our marinas and have the experience and investment capacity to further enhance this site.” Avia Willmet, the previous owner of Universal Marina will step down from her role as managing director, and Graham Bristowe – longserving general manager at Premier – will assume the role of managing the newly named Premier Universal Marina alongside Premier’s Swanwick site. – July/August 2021 17
