From October 2010 Camper & Nicholsons’ Port Louis Marina will be the base for The Moorings’ luxury charter operation in Grenada. Situated adjacent to the island’s capital, St
George’s, and only five miles from the international airport, the marina is
perfectly placed for arriving charter guests, and grants immediate access to
the breathtaking cruising grounds of Grenada and the Grenadines.
It’s southerly position makes Grenada a year-round destination, and The Moorings
will be offering bareboat charters and all-inclusive crewed vacations on a
fleet of 11m to 15m (35ft to 51ft) custom-built catamarans and monohulls.
Varied itineraries will explore the countless islands and anchorages, sandy
beaches and historic sites, and tours of rum distilleries, spice
plantations, waterfalls and national parks will pose a rare treat.
Cheryl Powell, The Moorings Chief Operating Officer, remarked, "This new base is a shining
example of our dedication to scouting out the world’s best cruising grounds,
shore-side surroundings and welcoming cultures for our guests’
enjoyment. They are sure to enjoy the top-notch facilities and service
standards for which Camper & Nicholsons are renowned. And Grenada’s natural
beauty, both afloat and ashore, make it the perfect yachting destination."
Port Louis has 160 fully serviced
berths with water and electricity, as well as 24 hour security and
marina-wide internet access. Facilities ashore include washrooms and
laundry, a bar, restaurant and pool.
James Beaver, Operations
Director of Camper & Nicholsons Marinas, said, "We’re delighted to have been selected by The Moorings as their southern Caribbean base. The momentum has
been building in Port Louis since we first opened some
18 months ago, and we already have sailmakers, provisioners, tour operators
and other businesses operating out of the marina. But this shows the
potential for Grenada as an international yachting destination, now that the
right facilities are in place. The Moorings and their guests are known for
their demanding standards, and we will work hard to make sure we surpass
