Press release from: Purple Cake Factory SL

As proof that Gibraltar’s Ocean Village is a superyacht magnet, this week a sextet of heavyweight vessels cruised in all requiring berths. Thanks to 2010’s Premier Berth expansion programme, there was space for all as well as a fantastic photo opportunity for passersby.

Ros Astengo, Business and Development Manager at the Ocean Village Pier Office, comments, “ We had 33 metre Suakin, 43 metre Calliope, 55 metre Turquoise, 56.5 metre Hampshire, 60 metre Sea Pearl and mammoth 61.5 metre Solemar all at anchor in our marina this week. Literally tens of millions of pounds worth of luxury. Ocean Village continues to be their marina of choice as Gibraltar’s fuel is tax-free, up to 40% cheaper than neighbouring Spain, our berth rates start from £3.50 per metre per day for boats of this size and of course it makes strategic sense. Geographically, Gibraltar is at the confluence of the Mediterranean and the Atlantic – a familiar British stop off for the megayacht ‘milk run’. Ocean Village has no competition.”

Off the water, Ocean Village has plenty to entertain and occupy visiting crews. The Marina offers retail therapy with fashion boutiques and liquor stores (and an all-important chandlery), hospitality heaven with everything from Irish pubs to authentic Indian cuisine as well as nightclubs and Gibraltar’s only combined casino, bingo club and sports betting zone. A Health Club is also on-hand for maintaining that body beautiful.

As a recent innovation, the retailers and restaurants in Ocean Village marina have launched a special “Premier Card” offering discounts in the various waterside establishments. Marina users will get their own day version of the Premier Card which will entitle them to all of the standard advantages alongside additional discounts from the Hire-U-Shop and Sheppard’s Chandlery.

About Ocean Village - Gibraltar's Ocean Village is fast-gathering a reputation for being the rising star in the superyacht arena and is now competing with the most established marinas across the Mediterranean.
Located on the west side of Gibraltar, Ocean Village is the most sheltered marina in the region with close-up views of Africa some 14km across the Straits. As the ‘gateway to the Mediterranean’, it provides a base for sailing across the Atlantic or exploring the marinas and beaches which populate the North African, Spanish and Portuguese coastlines.
Aside from geography, the Rock itself has obvious appeal to yacht owners. Gibraltar has Cat 1 Red Ensign Group status, EU membership and is the most important ship refuelling point in the Mediterranean thanks to cut-price fuel. It also has a favourable system of taxation (including no VAT), a no surprises legal system based on the UK and pound sterling as its currency.
