Monday 18 July
A few answers to your questions - we have been in Karpaz Gate Marina for one week......
There are finger pontoons for boats up to 40' long.
Laid moorings are being put down for stern/bow mooring
We have been told that the customs/import duty fees
are very high for items sent to TRNC from other countries, including Turkey
. One couple is going to Turkey
to collect a new dinghy
as it is cheaper and quicker than trying to bring it into TRNC.
There is a restaurant. Showers/WCs. WiFi
and Cable TV at each berth
No minimarket; no laundrette; No fuel
There is a dolmus transport system to Famagusta.
People hire a car to get out and about.
We do advise stocking up with chandlery
parts before arriving in TRNC. At Girne you can buy diesel
2.55TL per litre and there are large supermarkets.
It is a very safe marina, several boats have been left unattended. Everyone we have met has is friendly and very helpful eg if they have a hire car they will offer to do food shopping
Friday nights is Fish
and Chip night and they go to a place called Dex approx 2km from the marina. Restaurant will provide transport if necessary!
We shall be living aboard
our yacht all over the winter through till next May.
Looking forward to meeting you all
