Plans Approved for South Basin Marina

Plans for the South Basin Marina, that were submitted by the West End Development Corporation (WEDCO) partnering with South Basin Development Ltd. (SBD), have been given green light by planning authorities, according to Grant Gibbons, the Minister of Economic Development.

The new South Basin Marina, located at the former Royal Naval Dockyard, will provide a maximum of 100 new berths for pleasure boats ranging in size from less than 6m to vessels upwards of 80m.

The development also calls for the reclamation of approximately eleven acres of land for a new Commercial Marine Facility (CMF), allowing the development of a modern repair and maintenance facility (boat yard) which will be able to handle large vessels such as the Marine and Ports tugs, the passenger ferries, other vessels and super yachts in excess of 80m.

The South Basin Marina project is linked to the North Channel Modification Project, which proposes widening the north channel to allow larger cruise ships to visit Dockyard. According to Minister Gibbons, it is anticipated that dredged materials coming from the North Channel will be used as part of the aggregate required for the South Basin infill.

The overall Project received Bermuda Government approval in 2010. The Project was also approved by the current cabinet in 2013, and a further presentation to cabinet was made on 6 May 2014 affirming the importance and acceptance of the Project moving forward.
