Karpaz Gate Marina Boat Yard, managed by the Sea Alliance Group, has recently announced that a record number of boats and superyachts have used its dry dock facilities for refit, repair and maintenance work in 2015.
The 5 Gold Anchor-rated marina is now promoting special winter deals and packages for refit and repair work, as an increasing number of boat owners discover the convenience of the Northern Cyprus destination in its position away from more crowded and expensive options in the Western Mediterranean.
Highlights for the 2014/2015 season included a major service and repair work on a Custom Line 112, an extensive Sunseeker 90 project, and work carried out on a custom 47m sailing yacht.
Long-term clients berthing at the marina can now benefit from significant discounts on technical work, including a full free antifouling package with haul out and launch back services, a hull pressure wash, free hard standing and two coats of anti-fouling application.
The boat yard has a comprehensive selection of heavy-duty tools and equipment are available on-site, including hydraulic work platforms, welding equipment, cutting equipment, high capacity compressors and mobile cranes. Staff are also on-hand to conduct and execute any scope of project, while the duty-free status at the marina provides extra benefits for clients, with savings on spare parts, fuel, technical services and supplies.
Deniz Akaltan, harbour master at Karpaz Gate Marina said: “Building on our most successful summer season since the marina opened four years ago, we remain committed to maintaining the highest professional standards for our clients. It is our aim that yacht management companies and owners have access to a high-quality and wide range of services, and that crew members are satisfied with the boat yard and enjoy the marina facilities.
“We continue to see a growth in interest from superyachts which are looking for refit and maintenance packages outside the Western Mediterranean. They are discovering that in the Eastern Mediterranean, we can offer cost benefits and better value for money, as well as attractive packages, accommodating time frames and the full attention of our management team.
“All of our services are provided under the tight supervision of Sea-Alliance Group, which has proven experience in refits and new builds throughout Europe. As Northern Cyprus is outside of the EU zone and offers VAT-exempt supply and service options, there are significant cost advantages for the project owners. Inexpensive labour and material costs also have a major effect in enabling us to execute the same scope of refit projects with less funds compared to other boat yards in the region.”
