Nautical Newsroom

Welcome Aboard

Thanks for joining us as we launch this new venture — bringing together all the nautical news about Cyprus on one website. Not the shipping industry, but the leisure aspects of a seafaring business which is growing at such a fast rate.
Surfing the web in search of information can be so time-consuming, frustrating and, too often, unproductive. Hence the challenge to combine it all and encourage what we hope will become your single waypoint entry on the subject. No easy task, and it will take time to achieve its ultimate goal because the list of desirable topics is both long and diverse. But we’ve made a start.

Bottomless pit that keeps on giving

For boat owners, it may seem like pouring money into a bottomless pit and a growing number of Cypriot businesses need to grab that cash before it gets away.

Back to school for safety’s sake

back to school for safety’s sake

A rapid surge in the popularity of boating and sea sports threatens an inevitable ‘overcrowding’ problem along the coast. Education should help combat a rise in accidents.

Our under-used reservoirs

Using Cyprus’ many reservoirs for organised leisure activities such as water sports would appear to be an obvious way of expanding the island’s tourist attractions for local and foreign visitors alike.

Have marina plans run aground?
