* NOTE: All the tributes of All About Limassol (as the Official Guide of Limassol) aim to ONLY highlight the special advantages of this wonderful city, so that everyone can be aware of the unique Experiences it offers. Under no circumstances do they have any promotional or nominal value, nor do they serve the interests of Companies, Municipalities, Organizations or Individuals.

Limassol Marina is one of the most recognizable landmarks of both Limassol and the island as a whole. Although its image is familiar, not much is known about what goes on behind the scenes to ensure this flawless image, or the people who make it possible.

A dedicated team of 12 people work in operations at the l Marina, from 7am until late at night, seven days a week, all year round. They take care of everything related to the sea and the movement of boats. “There are no quiet days at the Marina,” says Marina Manager, Tom Lord.

The team is made up of people who love the sea and have turned it into their profession. Many have created an ideal career at the Marina, having been there since the start of its operation. Despite the fact that their role is a crucial one, they nevertheless remain invisible, keeping the Marina running smoothly and its berth holders safe and happy.

Their duties begin early, when they set out on the Marina’s workboats to clean the water of any debris and pollution. They also carefully monitor all of the boats at the Marina and their movements, keeping the boat owners informed about various legislations and waste disposal procedures, putting into motion mechanisms for the safe disposal of sewage.

“We ensure that our waste disposal services are very low-cost and very convenient, to make the procedures easy for our customers and ensure that no one is tempted to break the law,” explains Tom Lord.

The dedicated staff and the use of state-of-the-art technology (such as the wash-down filters used in the boat washing and maintenance areas) allow the Marina to maintain such a high level of cleanliness that it has for many years been awarded the Blue Flag, a distinction that only few marinas around the world possess.
