Miami Mayor Tomás Regalado recently toured Miami’s new superyacht marina, the first North American marina to cater exclusively to yachts as large as 550 feet.

Flagstone Property Group CEO and chairman Mehmet Bayraktar, the developer of Island Gardens, hosted Regalado for a walk-through on the completed piers at the Island Gardens Deep Harbour superyacht marina.

Opening in December, Deep Harbour will accommodate 50 yachts as large as 550 feet and will be laid out Med-style for tying up stern-to-dock. Water depth will be 18 feet inside the piers and 21 feet outside the piers. Amenities include in-slip fueling.

The new marina also will serve as the home of Superyacht Miami, a new boutique show from Show Management that will be part of the Feb. 11-15 Yacht Miami Beach, formerly known as the Yacht & Brokerage Show in Miami Beach.

For those traveling from international destinations, Island Gardens Deep Harbour will provide customs and immigration clearance to guests and residents arriving via yacht, according to a statement.

Island Gardens is a $1 billion luxury destination on Miami’s Watson Island that is designed to pamper the rich with two luxury hotels, a residential high-rise, upscale restaurants, high-end shops, water taxi service and the superyacht marina. The project is scheduled for completion in 2018.

Landscaping will include gardens, public art installations and civic art, and a public promenade overlooking the superyacht marina and the Miami skyline.
