There is a pump out facility. As to whether it is operational, good question. It's on the breakwater part which apparently has electric problems.

However, if you own a large Motor yacht, you may decide to miss out the middle man (i.e. don't use the shower or toilets provided by the marina) use your own on board facilities and dump straight into the marina.

Oops should I have mentioned that.

As I don't listen to the net I couldn't possibly say

If I want to speak to someone I usually walk round to there boat or if it's an Aussie I'll just shout abuse across the marina at them

Re: Karpas Gate Marina, Northern Cyprus - The Truth

Albert,

I agree with the marina rules...I even suggested a few of them and suggested one which they apparently have not included: Locking down wind generators as long as power is available on the pontoons. The majority of the marinas we have visited around the world have similar rules. I believe that these rules improve the neighborhood in which we live.

When I posted the press release it was to help others with a better view of Karpaz Gate Marina. I was certain that you would post an opposing view. Now those using CF for information have your view and my view...they are different. I feel that people will now be able to make an informed decision, and that is what CF readers should hope for.

I should point out that in the Eastern Med we have only visited 4 marinas: Zea, Agios Nikolaos, Yat Marin and Karpaz...so my opinion is based on limited information. I continue to believe that there is little comparison between Karpaz and Yat Marin. If a person likes Yat Marin, I am fairly certain that they would not like Karpaz. Neither Marina is perfect for everyone. All things considered, we prefer Karpaz over Yat Marin...we have experienced both. The next time we are in Marmaris we plan to try Netsel.

Bill

Yup, we'll pop along and check. I will un-plug you if plugged in

Re: Karpas Gate Marina, Northern Cyprus - The Truth

Well, reading this thread, I think the best for me is to forget Karpas Gate Marina as a destination.
