Several new features and amenities have already been unveiled by the Hurricane Hole Superyacht Marina, including a poolside bar and grill, a pharmacy, a wine and liquor store, a crew-friendly pool, a gym, and a Captain’s lounge. In addition to the marina’s top-tier service offerings, it also offers services such as an in-house concierge and customs and immigration clearance on-site. The in-slip fuelling feature is a first for the Bahamas and is sure to invite large yachts to the area.
A Unique Convenience For Large Yachts
A total rebuild and expansion has made Hurricane Hole Superyacht Marina bigger and better than ever. This includes a first-of-its-kind amenity in The Bahamas that caters to large yachts.
During the world-class redesign of Hurricane Hole on Paradise Island, the deep-water marina added in-slip fuelling as an added convenience for boats and yachts – a first for the Bahamas.
The state-of-the-art amenity for boat owners and crews is possible only due to the foresight and intricate engineering work that went into Hurricane Hole’s redevelopment, which has one remarkable feature for those who own or rent a slip at Hurricane Hole: vessels can be fuelled right where they are docked.

As a first step, a 2-inch line was installed, which was connected to 10 sump boxes around Hurricane Hole that act as fuel points. Transport trucks can fill the line at a centralised pump and filter station, because of this cutting-edge infrastructure, and then distribute fuel to the desired point around the entire marina.
Unlike most fuel docks, which can only accommodate one or two big boats and can take hours to fill, at Hurricane Hole, captains don’t have to monitor the delivery of fuel or wait in line behind other yachts.
David Kosoy, Executive Chairman and Founder of Sterling Global Financial Limited, the development’s owner and developer, said it’s a first-of-its-kind feature for a marina in The Bahamas that will make the facility even better for the yachting community.
“The new Hurricane Hole Superyacht Marina has the distinction of being an outstanding Bahamas marina, and this amenity only bolsters its premier status,” Kosoy said. “In-slip fuelling offers unparalleled convenience and yet another reason why Hurricane Hole is the only place to be for yachts of all sizes.”
