Brandy Marine focusing on international clients

Brandy Marine International of Sarasota, Fla., is expanding into marina management at luxury international resorts as the downturn in the domestic boating and marina market continues.

In 2008, Brandy Marine signed contracts to manage two international luxury marinas — Marina Papagayo at the Peninsula Papagayo resort in Guanacaste province on the northwestern Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, and Marina Cap Cana at the Cap Cana resort on the southeastern coast of the Dominican Republic.

Both marinas are up and running and accepting megayachts and luxury sportfishing boats. Capt. Dan Eaffaldano is general manager of Marina Papagayo and president of Brandy Marine’s Costa Rican operations. Capt. Andrew G. New is general manager of Marina Cap Cana under the auspices of Brandy Marine’s Dominican operations.

Marina Cap Cana is projected to have 1,250 wet slips. The marina currently has 89 slips accommodating yachts from 40 to 130 feet.  Marina Papagayo is projected to have 350 wet slips. It opened with 180 slips accommodating vessels from 35 to 220 feet.

Brandy Marine is involved in consulting, design and potential future management of other upscale marinas in Panama, the Dominican Republic, the Bahamas, Mexico, the Turks & Caicos Islands and U.S. locations.
