O, Canada, we stand on guard for thee! Great news has come from our neighbors to the north who reside in Victoria, B.C. The new Victoria International Marina currently under development has announced that it will be accepting its first guests this summer.
What makes this marina different than the average marina is that it is tailored to larger yachts. The 28 slips are designed for vessels 65 to 175 feet in length.
“The boating community is asking us what took so long, as Victoria’s harbor is such a natural location for this type of upscale marina in the heart of the Pacific Northwest’s spectacular cruising waters,” says Craig Norris, CEO of Community Marine Concepts.
“We see ourselves as true ambassadors of Victoria’s marine-based tourism and the Victoria International Marina as the gateway to what Victoria, Vancouver Island, and British Columbia has to offer.”
Sitting only 66 nautical miles north of Seattle, the Victoria International Marina looks poised to be a go-to option for owners of larger yachts heading north for the summer cruising season. One of two the two rentable commercial buildings under construction is already spoken for by a Victoria-based restaurateur. We’re definitely going to have to check it this budding destination this summer, one way or another! Check out their website at vimarina.ca.
