Port Louis Marina, Grenada, is pleased to announce its second charter base operation tenant in as many months. Sunsail, the charter company “for sailors by sailors” will offer sailing holidays in this beautiful Southern Caribbean region from October 2010 on a fleet of yachts exclusive to Sunsail based at Port Louis Marina.
The Port Louis Marina base, across the harbour from Grenada’s capital city of St. George’s, will home a fleet of 36′ to 44′ monohulls and catamarans for bareboat and skippered charters, including one-way charters from Port Louis to St. Vincent and vice versa.
Charterers can experience the exceptional sailing conditions while exploring the pristine reefs, colourful coral gardens and famous Tobago Cays. Kayaking, snorkeling and scuba diving are amongst the other activities on offer afloat, while ashore, the famous white and black sand beaches, crater lakes, rainforest and nutmeg plantations provide plenty to discover and areas to relax. Grenada’s rum distillery tours are a must for any visitor.
Port Louis Marina, Camper & Nicholsons Caribbean flagship, not only offers guests first-class amenities, but is also safely located south of the hurricane belt, thus enabling year-round cruising. The 160 fully serviced berths provide water and electricity, 24 hour security and marina-wide internet access. Visitors to the marinas will also have access to washrooms, laundry, swimming pool, duty-free shopping and, brand new for this season, the 1782 Bar and Restaurant.
The marina is easily reached by year round direct flights into the Maurice Bishop International Airport, only five miles away, and the closest international airport to the Grenadines.
Simon Conder, Global Brand Manager for Sunsail commented “We’re delighted to expand our charter offering in the Caribbean with yet another unique and spectacular cruising ground. Grenada offers a true taste of what the Caribbean is all about; beautiful beaches, turquoise seas and traditional cuisine are just a few of the delights you’ll encounter here, along with superb sailing conditions. Grenada is definitely a destination not to be missed.”
James Beaver, Operations Director of Camper & Nicholsons Marinas, said, “We’re delighted to include a brand like Sunsail alongside our other tenants at Port Louis Marina. The progress at the marina since we first opened nearly two years ago has been fantastic as yachtsmen realise the potential of being based in this beautiful part of the world and safely below the hurricane belt. We are continually investing in our exacting standards and Port Louis Marina is tribute to this providing a stunning year round cruising destination with luxury facilities.”
