Puerto Rico Invites Bids for Super Yacht Marina Complex

Puerto Rico Invites Bids for Super Yacht Marina Complex

The Puerto Rico Ports Authority (PRPA) has issued a request for proposal (RFP) for the leasing, design, construction, operation and financing of the rehabilitation, improvement and operation of the Isla Grande Dry Dock in the City of San Juan, and the design, construction, financing, and development of a super yacht marina complex.

The due date to submit the registration forms is June 15, 2015, and the due date for the proposal is June 24, 2015 at 2:00 PM (EST).

“Puerto Rico is going to be the premier destination in the Caribbean for maintenance, repair and overhaul services of luxury vessels, while further fostering the growth of the service and tourism industries on the island,” said Ingrid C. Colberg-Rodríguez, executive director of the PRPA.

”The RFP seeks to obtain proposals to transform the IGFF into a leading maritime-industrial center for yacht and superyacht maintenance, and develop a Marina Site to provide services and luxury shopping, dining and accommodations for the yachting community.”

Meanwhile, Alberto Baco-Bague, secretary of the Puerto Rico Department of Economic Development and Commerce, said that “fiscal advantages, diversified economy, physical infrastructure, human capital, and privileged location in the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea, make Puerto Rico an ideal spot for a first-class marina and a facility for maintenance, repair and overhaul of leisure vessels and super yachts.”

The RFP Project would be part of the Port of San Juan, which on average receives close to 500 cruise ships on 14 cruise lines, 1.4 million passengers, and 2,340 cargo ships moving approximately 8.3 million short tons of cargo per year.
