Harbour Island, The Bahamas – October 16, 2017 – Valentines Residences Resort and Marina, the largest marina complex on Harbour Island in The Bahamas, today announced the completion of several updates to their state-of-the-art facility including a newly installed marina relay protection switch which ensures a stable supply of electricity guest’s boats. Valentines came through Hurricanes Irma and Maria with no damage and its marina is fully operational and ready to receive guests, boats and super yachts for the winter yachting season.
With its famous pink sand beach, world-class dining, and shopping, Harbour Island has long been a favorite stop among yachters. This world-class marina has 51 transient slips, 33 of which are over 80’ with 7’ draft. Several slips have a 9’ draft and the marina has accommodated vessels up to 204’. The full-service marina offers diesel fuel service, full electric, unlimited fresh RO Water, wireless internet access, and nighttime security. Additional amenities include an upscale 41 room luxury resort, Valentines Dive Center, Dermalogica Skin Center and Spa, Cocoa Coffee Shop, Calico’s Retail Shop, a well-equipped fitness center, state of the art conference boardroom, and both indoor and outdoor dining at The Rooster Tail Bar and The Boathouse Restaurant.
“It’s been a challenging few months for marinas in the Caribbean, many of which have been severely damaged by Hurricanes Irma and Maria” said Dean Spychalla, Vice President and Managing Director of Valentines Residences Resort and Marina. “Thankfully, Valentines not only came away unharmed, but we even made new improvements to our facility. We invite owners and yacht charter brokers of all size vessels including mega yachts, who normally travel to Caribbean islands affected by the recent hurricanes, to stay with us this season.”
