Cape Charles Yacht Center, a new mega-yacht facility, is being built at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay in Cape Charles, Va. and features an 18-foot-deep channel for easy access to the Atlantic Ocean. The facility is a perfect midway point between Florida and New England and will have a full-service boatyard. Amenities include a 75-ton lift, 1,000 feet of face dockage and ample electricity up to 480 amps.

Stella Maris Village is a new development located on Long Island in the Bahamas. The village is a family-run boutique hotel resort. The marina and international airport are only a few minutes’ drive from the village filled with a mix of bars and restaurants. The area provides guests with an array of activities including kayaking, cycling, fishing, and scuba diving, and the Stella Maris Marina, accommodating vessels up to 100 feet, is located next door.

Govino was originally created as a trade tool to help professional salespeople showcase their wines, but there has been an even bigger demand for govino in the boating world. Flexible and incredibly thin, govino is comprised of a food-safe, BPA-free polymer, which reflects a wine’s color and projects its aromatics much like fine crystal stemware. It is shatterproof, reusable and ultimately recyclable.
