History of the Marina
The Marina is a joint venture with the Government of St. Vincent and the Grenadines which dates back to 2007 when various land parcels were combined to create the Glossy Bay site which covers an area between the extended runway, Taffia Hill and Glossy Hill.
Prior to the extensive site work and initial civil engineering phase, the site used to be the location for amongst other things, accommodation for staff working elsewhere on the island, a small hotel and a working quarry.
Mr Desmond took control of the site in March 2015 and has developed to all what we see today in this short space of time.
