We’re extremely pleased with the work that was completed on our motor yacht, the marina offers professional and affordable craftsmanship for both woodwork and fabrics. The highly skilled technical team are very helpful and were keen to meet our specific requests for the Passarella. The woodwork was entirely renewed based on the metal structure that already existed and the complex project proved the high level of craftsmanship available at the marina. They were also able to restore the tender boat protective cover and cushion fabrics to achieve a brand-new look. We’ll definitely be using the marina’s friendly expertise again.

We are German people, emigrants, and since the beginning of March 2018 we have lived on our yacht. We began our world sailing trip in Medemblik, Holland. In November 2018, we were in Karpaz Gate Marina for the first time. We liked it so much that we chose the marina again on our return trip.

We were in the restaurant and the food was very good! In the gym area, all the important equipment was available. We used it carefully and were happy that something like this was offered. With the service of your team and your mission, we were extremely satisfied. It’s the little things – help arriving at night, driving us to the supermarket, helping to keep control of the boat in storm, etc.

Thank you!

We had a very enjoyable stay at Karpaz Gate marina. The marina facilities are first class. All areas were well maintained and kept spotlessly clean. The staff were easily accessible and very friendly. We were met by the marina boat outside of the marina, and they directed us to our berth and handled all the ropes efficiently and professionally. They also assisted us with all entry formalities into Northern Cyprus which was a breeze. The marina location is at the beginning of the beautiful Karpaz peninsula. While transport is limited we had no trouble getting around and seeing the rest of Cyprus. Cyprus is a fantastic destination and Karpaz Gate is an excellent place to stay while visiting. We would thoroughly recommend it.

First time at Karpaz Gate Marina

, Crew Member of 20m to 30m S/Y Mersin Yelken Akademisi - 28/02/2018-12:12
Star OnStar OnStar OnStar OnStar On

I visited Karpaz Gate Marina at the end of January 2018. We had travelled from Mersin to Cyprus and docked at the marina. The marina had received an award in 2017 and the amenities are very new and clean. There is one restaurant called Hemingway's. Prices are not expensive for eating at the restaurant. I recommend their seafood menu.
It is close to the Bafra side of the Cyprus island, which has 2 big hotels Kaya and Noah's Ark, about 25 minutes’ drive.
In the marina, there is border control so you don’t need to go anywhere else to finish paperwork.
I really liked this marina - quiet, new and not too expensive.

We are currently wintering at Karpaz Gate Marina and must say the marina and facilities are beyond our expectations. We are sporty people so to have the onsite gymnasium is an added bonus. We were fortunate to arrive and experience the superb beach club facilities prior to it closing after the season. The winter programme 'Movie Night' commenced this week which was popular and a fun evening in exceedingly comfortable surroundings. Great compliments to each member of staff who are extremely approachable, helpful and always cheerful.

I recently had work carried out on my vessel ‘Vulcana’ at Karpaz Gate Marina in Northern Cyprus. The coach roof and cockpit were resprayed and also the deck was hand painted with Kiwi Grip non-skid. These jobs also required preparation work to the fibreglass. In addition, the cutlass bearing was replaced, and several other jobs were done satisfactorily. I would like to give special thanks to Mehmet and Co for a job well done, especially as weather conditions did not make this task easy.

I decided to make use of Karpaz Gate Marina’s travel lift and dry dock facilities to have Coppercoat anti-fouling applied to our 50ft sailing boat. I was not present during the application, but I had our yacht hauled out a year after the Coppercoat was applied to the hull by the Karpaz Gate Marina team and I was extremely happy with the quality of the application. I would definitely recommend the workmanship of the marina technical team to anyone based at or visiting North Cyprus.

We have kept our catamaran in KGM for over two years - Deniz and his excellent eam have looked after us royally - the marina is very clean, well maintained and has all the facilities you would want (beach club, resto etc). Their technical facilities are excellent and their pricing more than reasonable.

A jewel in the Eastern Mediterranean

A jewel in the Eastern Mediterranean, Karpaz Gate Marina is a delightful location, where Deniz Akaltan and his team always go out of their way to be as helpful and friendly as possible. We have had several engineering jobs carried out there to a very high standard. The marina is quiet and relaxed. It has no designer boutiques or discos, just one excellent bar/restaurant and a beach club nearby with pool, showers and restaurant. It has won the International Marina of the Year 2017 award was well deserved. We would hate to see the marina becoming too overcrowded, so we won't tell you where it is!

I've had my sailboat in Karpaz Gate Marina for a year, taking advantage of the free offer for the anti-fouling and dry-dock stay. I have also had the annual review of the mechanics of the boat carried out. Everything has been very satisfactory, including the attention of the marina staff, and the excellent facilities and services. When I return to Cyprus, it will certainly be at this marina.

We wintered our motor yacht Christiana in this lovely marina on the quiet and peaceful Karpaz peninsular. We found it to be very pretty and well-appointed, with great facilities, Beach Club and restaurants, and also a large travel lift. The prices are very good and there are some beautiful beaches nearby to visit.
Leaving to cross to the mainland one week we experienced engine failure 15 miles offshore and an oil leak that created a frightening amount of smoke through the boat that initially created the impression of a fire in the engine room.
After calling ‘Mayday’ and drifting for two hours, the N Cyprus coast guard contacted the Karpaz Marina who came out to us in their rib and managed to tow us slowly but safely back to harbour at 3 knots taking about 5 hours. We arrived back alongside just after midnight. My wife and I are enormously grateful to Captain Deniz, who runs the marina, and Enver, his safety manager for coming to our rescue.

Modern marina with good facilities, set in the most attractive part of Cyprus. The marina and the surrounding area is a brilliant place, with lots of positives. We have cruised all around the world and Karpaz Gate Marina is one of the nicest marinas we have visited. It has great facilities, and the waters in the surrounding area, even in the marina, are crystal clear. The marina staff are very friendly and helpful. It is close to a selection of restaurants, which are very good value, and interesting archaeological sites.

Simply the best marina we have stayed in during 10 years of sailing the Med from Mallorca to Tasucu, Istanbul to Tunis. Superb facilities, the friendliest and most helpful staff and excellent value.
However it is remote and you will need a car to see the Karpaz Peninsular and historical sites of TRNC.

It is such a joy to walk into the bathroom/shower and laundry room. Everything is super clean. We have been sailing and staying in marinas since 1992, and have never experienced the same degree of cleanliness as now. Even the washing machines and dryers sparkle!

Over the past 4 years of ownership of M/Y Devils Advocate, she has had various home ports such as San Remo, Nice, Canet en Roussillon and Port Ginesta. Nowhere have I received such perfect and competent attention as in Karpaz Gate Marina for technical repairs and maintenance. The cable masters for instance, have been out of operation for 1 year because of lack of competency of the French electrician. I am writing this because I firmly intend to blog about the advantages of KGM for yachts needing care and maintenance. Your staff help during mooring is second to none.
