Golfito Marina Village & Resort in Costa Rica is set to open in August, David Johnson, the marina sales director, told Superyacht Business.

Construction works of Phase One are due to be completed in August. At this time over 300ft of the Main pier is completed with more than 100ft of new docks arriving every week. As a result, the facility will be able to accommodate one yacht up to 150m (492ft) on the main pier in addition to dockage for 50 yachts ranging from 40ft-150ft.

Commenting on the project, Johnson explains: “We will be able to provide shore power, sewage pump out and fresh water for all of the yachts. All of the berths will offer side to dockage.”

In addition, a Fishermans Pier currently under construction will be finished by August and will be dedicated to sport fishing tournaments.

“A small selection of slips will be available for purchase in Phase One; a few have been sold already,” Johnson adds.

When completed in 2017 the deep water marina will offer the largest superyacht berths on the entire West Coast of Central America and promise to provide the most state of the art facilities.

Below is the schedule of works to be completed in the coming five months:

  1. A 150 metre promenade that will run from the Marina Village to the marina.
  2. A Marina Village with shops and restaurants.
  3. A Service Yard with a boat ramp and 45 tonne travel lift.
  4. On-shore dry rack storage for boats up to 35ft will be done in three months.
  5. 80-metre fuel dock with 175-gallon per minute fuel pumps.
  6. Secured main entrance to the Marina and Resort, and all landscaping.
  7. Construction will start on the Luxury Villas.
