The Yacht Marina@Crossroads offers 30 berths for superyachts up to 60m
The recent Phase One opening of the new Crossroads Maldives luxury destination includes a new marina able to berth some 30 superyachts of up to 50m (164ft) as well as several small yachts.
The Crossroads Maldives complex is located on a series of islands in the Kaafu Atoll and Emboodhoo Lagoon and it is conveniently positioned just 15 minutes by speedboat from Velana International Airport and Male, the Maldives capital.
According to Asia-Pacific Superyachts: “The Maldives is a destination continuing its growth in popularity among luxury yacht visitors and charterers. The exotic atolls stretch across the equator, providing rich green colours of the lush tropic jungle and gleaming white sands. On land, the Maldives offer luxury and elegance with shores dotted with exclusive resorts and services to be enjoyed. And now, an exciting new yacht marina has opened at the new Crossroads Maldives, world-class lifestyle leisure and entertainment destination.”
Crossroads is an integrated leisure and lifestyle hub which currently includes two luxury resorts with more to come. At the centre of the Crossroads hub is ‘The Yacht Marina @ Crossroads’, the first and largest of its kind in the Maldives.
“The Yacht Marina offers an impressive 30-berth quay, complete with world-class facilities and exclusive concierge services, the ideal haven to weigh anchor,” reports Mohamed Hameed, heading up Asia Pacific Superyachts Maldives and the head office in Malé, providing the care and services needed by superyachts and expected by captains.
He adds: “Catering for vessels from 10m (33ft) to 60m (197ft), this is the ultimate explorer’s paradise, a true waterfront township with the marina having limited access for vessels up to 50ft of length but the superyacht docks are fully operational.”
