Eleven years after the start of the first construction work, the last piece in the Limassol marina puzzle has been placed. The delivery of the apartments of the Castle Residences complex on the "island" marked the completion of the project, making it the first superyacht marina on the island, as one of the most successful development projects ever implemented in Cyprus.
For the contributors of the great work, pride is the word that represents what they feel. Speaking in "Entrepreneurial Limassol", the General Manager of the marina Nikiforos Pampakas, stressed that the grandiose work is proof that when there is vision, an appetite for hard work and strategic planning, even the most difficult goals can be achieved. A 40-year vision, he added, came true.
The marina, an undeniably emblematic project for Limassol, has played a decisive role in the evolution of the city, while improving the image of the island abroad. In addition to upgrading the wider region, strengthening domestic businesses and creating new jobs, the marina, indicated by Nikiforos Pampakas, has placed Cyprus on the world maritime map, contributing significantly to the upgrading of tourism.
The figures are indicative of the success of the whole project. Property sales have surpassed €500 million, with buyers coming from 50 different nationalities. More than 7,000 yacht arrivals have occurred since the first day of operation of the marina, which welcomed more than 275 superyachts. More than 4,000 people visit its restaurants and shops every day on average.
With the percentage of sales for the 285 residential units exceeding 90%, Limassol's cosmopolitan marina has established itself as one of the most popular destinations in the Mediterranean. Now, as Nikiforos Pampakas mentioned, the marina will focus on enriching the services provided to the boats, while explaining that the construction of more marinas in Cyprus will not work competitively but supportively for the Limassol marina.
