Jamaican marina weathers Hurricane Ivan

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Westrec Marina’s newest Caribbean management contract –The Marina at Port Antonio in Jamaica – survived Hurricane Ivan without incident, the company reported in a recent press release.

The marina’s concrete docks, buildings, boatyard, and Beach Bar & Grille were unscathed by the winds of the north side of the storm.

“It’s back to normal with just limited vegetation damage,” said John Louis, regional manager of Westrec. “In the marine community, it’s known that any building or protected harbor sanctioned by the Navy or Port Authority is a safe place to be during a hurricane or storm, as proven in Port Antonio.”

Westrec said the marina facility in Port Antonio “once again proves to be the example all Caribbean Port Authorities and privatized harbor front developers should emulate.

“This example reflects the well-planned construction, given the amount of storms both the Caribbean and Florida have experienced this season,” said Louis. “Westrec’s Harbour Towne, Hall of Fame and Sunrise Harbor Marinas all are unscathed by the last two storms that have graced Florida. Many boaters are enjoying recreational boating this summer due to the precautions and the attention Westrec gives to their facilities, combined with their commitment to safety.”
