Luxury yachting in Kenya will be boosted by the launch of English Point Marina in Mombasa

20 Jan 2016

East Africa's first and only marina, English Point Marina in Mombasa is set to put Kenya on the map of the luxury yacht market and the investment is set to open up Kenya to the high-end international ocean travel.

The new state-of-the-art English Point Marina was opened on Tuesday by President Uhuru Kenyatta. The four-acre ocean view, multi-million dollar marina resort features a fully-serviced 88-berth marina. The English Point Marina, the brainchild of two Kenyan brothers, Alnoor and Amyn Kanji, is a unique development in Mombasa.

Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta has announced a number of incentives aimed at reviving tourism which has suffered in the recent past due to increased attacks from Somalia militants.
