We seem to be getting a little ‘yachty’ recently, perhaps it’s about time for the editorial team of Luxurious Magazine to ‘don’ some Sperry Top-Sider boat shoes and head out onto the high-seas – Barbados looks very inviting!
We hope that you enjoyed part one of our interview with Lamberto Tacoli, President And CEO Of CRN Yachts we published yesterday and to continue the nautical theme we will be taking a look at the new marina developments at Port Ferdinand.
The first phase of the multi-million dollar Port Ferdinand Luxury Marina and Residences have now been launched.

The development is located on the beautiful northwest coast of Barbados, it is the latest luxury resort created and managed by Barbadian brand, UNNA Luxury Resorts & Residences. It occupies a dramatic 16 acre inland waterway site, and when completed, will comprise of 82 spacious residences and 120 yacht berths in total.

Alistair Brown UNNA’s Sales & Marketing Director comments: “Port Ferdinand Luxury Marina and Residences is one of the most significant and exciting developments on Barbados and will be a haven for boat owners, especially with the option of duty free concessions on yachts and boats. Over the past few years, we’ve seen Barbados become a ‘villa’ destination and the recently passed Special Entry & Reside Permit, allowing residency to investors and their families, is driving even greater interest. The concept of the UNNA brand is to offer a truly luxurious multi-generational experience through a range of activities and entertainment, while delivering the best in resort living and refined comfort.”
