Ocean World Marina, located in Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic, is becoming a popular destination for superyachts. Ideally located between the Florida and the Bahamas, and the Puerto Rico and Eastern Caribbean regions, the marina has seen an increase in the number of yachts, and in particular, charter yachts.

Jean Pereyra, managing director of Ocean World Marina commented, “We are the only full service marina located between the heavily travelled Florida/Bahamas area and the Puerto Rico/ Eastern Caribbean Region, constantly receiving superyachts that are travelling from Florida to the Virgin Islands and stopping there to fill up on fuel and make use our modern and well-fitted marina facilities.
“The location of the marina, coupled with the fact that we are now seen as more of a ‘destination’ for yachts, due to the leisure activities, facilities and tourist experiences we can offer in the Dominican Republic, means that more yachts and superyachts are visiting the marina every year.”
Created in 2006, and located on Cofresi beach near the town of Puerto Plata, which is already celebrated as an affordable Caribbean vacation playground, Ocean World has an abundance of facilities and recreational opportunities that include: golf, fishing, scuba diving, horseback riding, and even white water rafting.
Jean Pereyra continued, “The marina has become a destination for yacht charter companies worldwide because of our renowned on-site conveniences for luxury yachts, owners, their guests and crew members.
“We are also seeing the benefits of only being a 30-minute drive away for Puerto Plata's airport (POP), which has daily flights from Miami, NYC and many cities in Europe.”
