Knight & Carver is pleased to announce that the Port of San Diego has officially launched its Megayacht Mooring facility along San Diego’s bayfront Embarcadero. Up to eight spaces are now available for megayachts sized 100 ft and longer, up to 400 ft.
The location includes more than 200,000 square feet of water between the Grape Street piers and the San Diego Maritime Museum, just north of the B Street Pier.
Using a system of docking popular in Mediterranean megayacht facilities, the large, luxurious vessels will be able to berth in a parallel formation alongside each other — the traditional European manner favored by large yachts in such glamorous yachting ports as Monte Carlo, Monaco and Antibes, France.
The Port’s board of commissioners granted a two-year lease to San Diego Mooring Company to manage the facility.
“We whole-heartedly welcome this official sanction by the Port of San Diego of our successful efforts to attract large privately-owned yachts to San Diego,” said Sam Brown, president/CEO of Knight & Carver. “We congratulate the Port for taking this significant step forward for the city and our marine industry.”
The designated site is located along San Diego’s Harbor Drive, the scenic boulevard that runs along the bayfront. It is within easy walking distance of the city’s downtown business district as well as upscale restaurants and hotels. In addition to San Diego’s year-round mild climate and the relative calm waters of San Diego Bay, another advantage of the site is its close proximity to Lindbergh Field, the city’s international airport, located less than a mile away.
