Karpaz Gate Marina in North Cyprus has been praised for its recent boat yard project to prepare luxurious 43m S/Y Daima for the season.

The leading East Mediterranean marina is sharing a unique view of the haul-out and maintenance services carried out on the custom-built superyacht on its new YouTube video at The motor sailer was the first yacht to be produced by Arkin Pruva Argos Yachts based in Antalya Free Port, Turkey and blends the comfort of a classical Turkish Gulet with a modern hull and superstructure.

Further enhancing the Five Gold Anchor marina’s reputation as a convenient and extensive dry dock facility to execute a wide scope of refit, repair and maintenance on yachts and superyachts, the S/Y Daima success is its latest notable project this year and has received positive feedback.

Arkin Group Chairman Erbil Arkin commented: “The size and capacity of the Karpaz Gate Marina Boat Yard facility and the quality of the equipment is very impressive, particularly the 300-ton capacity travel hoist. The boat was hauled out on schedule in an efficient and attentive manner, the launch back went extremely smoothly and the boat was soon back in the water and ready for the summer. We had complete trust in the experienced and accommodating Karpaz Gate Marina staff and in the security and safety of the boat yard and the whole marina.”

An increasing number of superyachts, yachts and boats are using Karpaz Gate Marina’s dry dock facilities for pre-season preparations, or more extensive technical and specialist work.
