Port Cyprium Marina is set to be the most prestigious development on the North Cyprus coast, providing a world-class marina facility for international yachtsmen and their boats. The Marina complex will include 543 berths, shops, restaurants, a yacht club, and a hotel, all on an unspoilt stretch of North Cyprus coastline.
Port Cyprium Marina is the long-time dream of Altan Houssein, an engineer and passionate yachtsman who realised that there were only 22 quality marinas along the Turkish coastline – and all of them were virtually full. Since 1974, restrictions had been imposed by the UN at the behest of the South Cyprus government on the movement of yachts around North Cyprus coast, so it was virtually impossible for boats to moor on the coastline of North Cyprus. So, Altan Houssein set about achieving the near-impossible by getting the 30-year old yacht ban lifted, and also gaining permission for this major development on the North Cyprus coastline to be constructed - within strict environmental guidelines.
The Port Cyprium Marina will accommodate a wide variety of sailing craft, with berths ranging in size from 4 metres to Super Yacht dimensions. Every boat that berths here will have access to all the facilities a crew might require, including a chandlery, repair shop and fuel supplies.
