BELLINGHAM MARINE SIGNS AGREEMENT TO BUILD WORLD CLASS MARINA IN COSTA RICA
March 17, 2008
Situated along the spectacular coastline of Quepos, Costa Rica with direct access to some of the world’s best sport fishing, development of Costa Rica’s newest premier destination and world class marina is underway. Marina Pez Vela scheduled to open late 2008, is the vision of sport fishing enthusiast and Costa Rica local Harold Lovelady. Harold and colleague John Kane have teamed up with world renowned marina contractor Bellingham Marine to deliver a state-of-the art modern marina. The new marina will open up thousands of miles of ocean to anglers and trans-oceanic travelers and is positioned to be the region’s premier destination marina.
Quepos has long been regarded as a fishing haven; however, access to the region’s fishing grounds is nearly impossible. Boating facilities and services in the region are extremely limited. Marina Pez Vela will provide a safe haven and fully staffed maintenance facility for boaters. “We are confident Marina Pez Vela will satisfy the tremendous demand for marina services in the region, which have gone largely unmet until now and will provide access to Costa Rica’s tranquil, rich waters and stunning coastline,” commented John Kane, partner in the project.
The 300-slip marina will feature extra wide modern concrete floating docks to allow easy access by golf carts, safe loading of passengers and equipment, and secure moorage. The first phase of construction includes 100-slips accommodating yachts up to 200 feet in length. Slip side services include telephone, cable, high speed internet, fresh water and electrical hook ups. High speed fuel pumps, septic pump-out and dockside concierge services will also be available on site. The marina will be built with an emphasis toward environmental protection and will meet full American and Costa Rican building codes and standards
Marina Pez Vela is slated to be a world class waterfront development. Upon completion, the development will include a full service 300-slip marina, a drystack for boats up to 40 feet, maintenance facilities with a 200-ton travel lift, an upscale boutique hotel, residential units, restaurants, upscale shopping and a retail center including tackle shop, marine supplies, deli and grocery store.
