The handover of Cesme Marina located in the Izmir peninsula has taken place - with the Turkish Government officially passing the facility onto Camper & Nicholsons Marinas.
The marina is currently being redeveloped to bring it up to the standards you would expect from one of the world´s most prestigious yachting business names.
Cesme Marina, situated in the Aegean Sea, offers one of the world´s most beautiful cruising grounds. Currently undergoing redevelopment, the marina is set in a natural harbour and presently offers 180 berths up to 30m in length.
When complete in Spring 2009, capacity will be increased to 375 berths and will accommodate yachts up to 60m in length. All marine technical facilities will be provided and services will include fuel as well as fresh water and electricity. An 80 ton travel hoist will also be available for haul-out, along with technical support for yacht maintenance, engine repairs and electronics.
Shoreside investment will see shops, sports and health centres, yacht clubs, restaurants and bars onsite - which will position Cesme as a hub for luxury yachting in the Eastern Mediterranean.
As an ideal location with access to spectacular areas in the Aegean, with Chios, Samos and Lesvos close enough for a weekend cruise, Cesme is also ideal for day sailing - where quiet and secluded anchorages can readily be found.
The marina is a 45 minute drive from an international airport in Izmir and is located right at the western end of the Izmir peninsula with easy access 24 hours a day in all weather conditions. Once there, windsurfing, golf and scuba diving are available nearby and schools for these activities are readily accessible throughout the day. There are many historical and cultural sites to visit within easy reach of the marina and an excursion to try the healing and restorative properties of the hot springs and spas is an attractive option.
