Curacao Means Business!

Curacao’s marine expansion has taken a leap forward with the recent opening of the Curacao Marine Services project at Parera. The island’s first modern, fully-equipped boatyard facility was opened by Dutch Minister Pechtold and contains a Roodberg/Knijpstra trailer, which eliminates beam restrictions when handling catamarans, and a second Curacao outlet for Budget Marine, to complement the flagship store at Caracasbaaieweg.

Facilities include a 40 ton slipway, teak work, paint shop, bottom treatment and transport to Europe.

Curacao Marine is a superb addition to the existing Opus Marina at Piscadera Bay, which has a 70-ton travelift, helping to establish the island as a must-visit destination for those on their way to the Pacific.

Furthermore, the Curacao Marine Trades Association was launched in September. The CMTA represents both marinas, as well as local repair, engineering and haul out facilities, boat sales and the marinas at Seru Boca, Curacao Yacht Club and Sarifundi.
