Hurricane Hole Superyacht Marina continues to add to its already extensive list of offerings after opening to vessels in spring 2022. The Paradise Island marina became the first marina in The Bahamas to offer in-slip fueling, an added convenience for large yachts.

Thanks to a two-inch line connected to 10 sump boxes around Hurricane Hole that act as fuel points, boats around the perimeter can fuel up without captains having to monitor the delivery of fuel or wait in line.

Executive Chairman and Founder of Sterling Global Financial Limited, the development’s owner and developer, David Kosoy said in a press release that the first-of-its-kind feature will make the facility even better for the yachting community.

“The new Hurricane Hole Superyacht Marina has the distinction of being an outstanding Bahamas marina, and this amenity only bolsters its premier status,” Kosoy said. “In-slip fueling offers unparalleled convenience and yet another reason why Hurricane Hole is the only place to be for yachts of all sizes.”

Its grand opening for the complete renovation and expansion of the deep-water marina was celebrated on November 25, 2022. The Rt. Honorable Philip “Brave” Davis, Prime Minister of The Bahamas, officially opened the marina that evening.

Many of the marina’s features and amenities are already open to the public, including a poolside bar and grill, a wine and liquor store, and a pharmacy that opened in December 2022. A crew-friendly pool, gym, and captain’s lounge are also available.

Three restaurants with a mix of fine dining and oceanfront casual dining will open early this year, as well as a gourmet grocery store, medical clinic, and wellness center.
