Blue Marlin Cove Announces Major Expansion to Their Resort and Marina

WEST END, Grand Bahama Island, January 10, 2018

Blue Marlin Cove Resort and Marina has unveiled new plans to build upon their rich sport fishing heritage and expand into a second home, world-class vacation and eco-tourism destination. Plans call for the construction of a new beach club and pool, a welcome center with on-site customs, an amenities building with spa, and the expansion of the marina to approximately 90 floating slips with fuel and diesel pumps. The acquisition of several adjoining properties has been completed, and the resort’s new footprint will include direct beachfront access. Groundbreaking will occur in the second half of 2017 and the new facilities are estimated to be completed in 2018.

Joseph Rieger, owner of Blue Marlin Cove, said: “West End has always been the gateway to the Bahamas. Every year we host thousands of sport fishermen and their families at our resort. With the economy and boating industry continuing to strengthen, more and more boaters are traveling to the Bahamas. In addition to fisherman, we have also seen an increase in the number of visitors who want to enjoy a tranquil getaway to the islands or are searching for a second home with eco-tourism opportunities. We’re very excited about this expansion, as it enables us to increase the resort’s offerings, appeal to a wider variety of owners & guests, offer more convenience to boaters, increase our marina capacity, and continue our mission to provide a world-class Bahamian experience!”
