17/12/2007 - Grand Marina to open in Ao Por

The Grand Marina in Ao Por will become Phuket´s forth marina when it opens in early 2008.

The marina has been under construction for the last twelve months and has cost in the region of 300 million Baht (10 million US Dollars).  The facility will feature 200 berths and will cover an area in excess of 30 Rai (48,000m2).

The investment company in charge of the marina, Ao Por Pattana, also plan to construct 19 villas and 60 apartments on the land surrounding the marina.

Ao Por already has a busy pier with many boats departing daily for destinations on the surrounding islands. The Pier was restored and enlarged at a cost of 130 million Baht only a few years ago  to support an increase in passenger numbers. The Grand Marina in Ao Por is situated two kilometres
from The Ao Por Pier.

The area around Ao Por is becoming of increasing interest to investors with the construction of a number of high end luxury developments.  The Jumeriah Phuket Private Island Resort will feature a select number of luxury residences and have 90 private marina berths.

Phuket currently has three operating marinas, The Yacht Haven in Mai Khao district, Phuket Boat Lagoon and Royal Phuket Marina both in Thalang district.
