Anguilla Announces First Five-Stars Yacht Development

A ground-breaking ceremony was held July 9 at Altamer Resort, one of the world’s most luxurious villa resorts, to launch a joint venture partnership with Island Global Yachting (IGY). The five star mega-yacht marina and real estate development will comprise a luxury resort hotel along with retail and residential components, and will be the first marina facility on the island. It is scheduled to open during the fourth quarter of 2009.

The Altamer Resort & Marina project expands on the vision of owners Rebecca and Michael Eggleton to develop a product that would appeal to the upper end of the tourism market.

The partnership with IGY will develop the island’s first luxury mega-yacht marina facility capable of accommodating boats and yachts up to 300 feet, and will be an official port of entry to the island. The development will feature a 101-slip marina of which a significant portion of the berths will accommodate mega-yachts, as well as 740,000 square feet of upland space which is currently slated for a 164-unit luxury resort…
