The largest superyacht marina in North America is set to open up in the Bahamas. 

Dubbed Habacoa and sitting on the southwestern point of Great Abaco Island, the new marina is ideally situated to cater to the world’s rich and famous traveling from the U.S. to the Caribbean. 

Habacoa is set around 160 nautical miles east of Fort Lauderdale and just 50 nautical miles north of Nassau. Making it an ideal stopover for travelers.

What facilities does the Habaco superyacht marina have?

The flash marina will have some 134 berths as well as 200 vessel dry-stack facilities. It will be able to accommodate yachts measuring from 18 meters to 220 meters.

This means it’s plenty big enough to fit the $120m superyacht owned by ‘real-life Willy Wonka’ and will even be big enough to house the 220-foot all-electric superyacht – should the concept ever become reality. 

As you’d probably expect from such a project, Habacoa takes luxury and splendor very seriously. It boasts an incredible array of amenities including a members-only club, casino, nightclub, and performance hall.

“Surrounded by 20,000 acres of Abaco National Park in the Bahamas, Habacoa will boast a state-of-the-art marina sized for the largest yachts on the seas, ultra-luxury residences, as well as world-class dining and shopping, live entertainment offerings, recreational water sports and beach experiences and more,” the project’s website explains.

The new marina will be eco-friendly 

Keeping things green and sustainable, the marina will use solar power to provide most of its energy. Alongside that, rainwater harvesting and a wastewater recycling plant will offer sustainable water solutions. 

Designers and developers were keen on ‘blurring the lines’ between the marina and the stunning natural beauty it’s set amongst. 

“Nestled in the pristine waters of South Abaco, Bahamas, Habacoa will redefine the landscape of superyachting and luxury living,” a statement on the Habacoa website reads. 

“The mission and relentless ambition of Habacoa has several foundational pillars: to be a superyacht-centric, destination marina with exceptional experiences; to offer ultra-luxury hospitality with world-class services; and to provide cutting-edge eco-technology with a passionate focus on sustainability.

“With two airports, charter options, and proximity by sea and air to Florida and all of the Eastern U.S., Habacoa is the very definition of location, location, location.”

However, the eco-friendly new development will be much more than just somewhere for the world’s elite to dock their boats – it’s also set to house a super luxurious residential community. 

The ‘alluring’ residential properties, each come with stunning views of the ocean, marina, or canal waterways. 

The homes are all designed by renowned architects, but if you fancy something truly unique then there’s also the option to buy one-acre homesites you can build on.

Sign. Me. Up.
