Hurricane Hole Superyacht Marina in The Bahamas Unveils Another Amenity for Yacht Captains and Crew
The New Captain’s Lounge and Gym Opened June 1, 2023, at Paradise Landing
Paradise Island, The Bahamas — A unique new feature specifically designed for yacht captains and crew members is now open at Hurricane Hole Superyacht Marina at Paradise Landing in the heart of The Bahamas.
The country’s best deep-water marina, located on Paradise Island in the growing Paradise Landing commercial and residential community, opened its new Captain’s Lounge and Crew Gym on Thursday, June 1.
The dockside facility will serve as a place for yacht captains to get away and relax in comfort on the upper floor, where they can unwind and take in beautiful views from a glass-railed deck with comfortable lounge furniture. On the ground floor, captains and yacht crew members will find a state-of-the-art gym facility to exercise and enjoy time off the yacht.
Khaalis Rolle, President of Sterling Global Financial, the developer behind the Paradise Landing project, said it’s the latest addition to a growing suite of captain- and crew-friendly amenities right at Hurricane Hole. The lounge and gym facility is close to a pool, the dockside bar and grill, and barbecue facilities, meaning crew members won’t have to travel far to exercise, relax, dine, and socialize at the marina.
“We’re proud to roll out this new lounge for captains to take a well-deserved break while they’re docked at Hurricane Hole Superyacht Marina,” he said. “There are so many reasons why yacht captains and charter brokers choose us as their home base in The Bahamas, and we’ll continue offering up the best-in-class amenities and top-notch marina experiences that they’ve come to expect.”
Beyond crew-friendly amenities like the new lounge and gym, Hurricane Hole has earned its top reputation in the Caribbean due in large part to an impressive array of infrastructure upgrades and strategic improvements that make it the best place to be for yachts of all sizes.
When crews are at Hurricane Hole, they can expect state-of-the-art features like floating Bellingham concrete docks that rise and fall with the tides, meaning they won’t have to re-tie as water levels change, and a first-in-The-Bahamas in-slip fueling availability that doesn’t require captains to go to a fuel dock or monitor refueling.
The world-class reconstruction project at the marina made it easier than ever for yachts of all sizes to get around because Hurricane Hole has a 240-foot-wide turning basin, slips up to 420 feet, and a 14.5-foot depth at low tide. Here, even the biggest and best superyachts can navigate with ease.
Hurricane Hole Superyacht Marina also offers high-speed Wi-Fi and ship-to-shore fiber connectivity, top-tier security, and on-site concierge services.
The marina and Paradise Landing neighborhood are owned and operated by Sterling Global Financial Limited, which held a groundbreaking on May 11 for the new Latin and Bahamian restaurant Carnivale Bahamas which is expected to open in spring 2024.
David Kosoy, Executive Chairman and Founder of Sterling Global, said Paradise Landing will only continue to get bigger and better as more projects like the new Captain’s Lounge and Gym and forthcoming Carnivale Bahamas restaurant and Sawyer’s Fresh Market come to fruition.
“Hurricane Hole Superyacht Marina is grateful for the support of yacht captains and crew members who have chosen us as the best place to be in The Bahamas,” he said. “With the addition of our new Captain’s Lounge and Gym, we’re confident they’ll find even more reasons to love their time at Hurricane Hole on Paradise Island.”
