First megayacht resort to come
Altamer Resort, a collection of beachfront boutique villas on Anguilla’s Shoal Bay West is set to get a megayacht marina. New York-based real-estate development firm Time Equities, which acquired Altamer Resort in 2014 announced plans for an expansion of the resort including a megayacht marina complex, which will be the first marina resort built in Anguilla with the highest level of concierge services. The marina will also serve as an official port of entry to the island, with 30 percent of its berths designed to accept yachts stretching between 30 and 200 feet. The new facility is slated to include a 164-unit resort, in addition to duty-free retail shops and a restaurant promenade. Time Equities is partnering with Anaconda Holdings and Cross Island Development to bring its plans to fruition.
“For nearly a decade, Altamer Resort has offered the finest world-class hospitality experience on Anguilla, and we are certain that with the involvement of Jeff Boyd, Chairman of Anaconda LTD/Marine Management and Consulting, along with Cross Island Development, we will collectively enhance that reputation,” said Francis Greenburger, chairman and CEO of Time Equities, Inc. “Altamer Marina will rival some of the most renowned facilities in the region and will not only position Anguilla as a choice destination among the luxury yachting community, but will meet the rising yachting, shopping and dining demands of high net worth individuals.”
Anaconda LTD and Cross Island Development have strong backgrounds in designing and building luxury yachting destinations such as The Yacht Club at Isle de Sol and Port de Plaisance in St. Maarten, in addition to Yacht Haven Grand in St. Thomas.
“We welcome this marina development project as an important enhancement of Anguilla’s tourism product. It is just what the doctor ordered,” said Anguilla Chief Minister Victor F. Banks. villaaltamer.com
