Tortola’s Nanny Cay Hotel and Marina Making Progress

Nanny Cay, a resort marina and boatyard in Tortola, British Virgin Islands is making progress in repairing the damages caused by the passage of Hurricane Irma.

Crucially, about 40 percent of Nanny Cay’s rooms are already available, though without Wi-Fi and cable, while the Nanny Cay Beach Bar is already open daily.

As for the marina, sixty docks are due to arrive in November, and will be installed in the undamaged outer marina– providing just over 100 slips.

The Husky Salvage team continues to clear the inner marina, which is “looking considerably better than it did.”

They have added two slips by the fuel dock and are working on additional slips.

For the current season, the marina will be making provisions for “med mooring” along the bulkhead of the inner marina– tying boats up stern-to along the quay of the inner marina with moorings for the bows.

This will reduce the number of boats that they will be able to accommodate, but Nanny Cay says it looks forward to accommodating many of its seasonal and transient guests this season.

“We hope to have additional plans in place soon for more dockage,” the marina said in a statement. “We have cranes in the boatyard righting toppled boats as the surveyors and adjusters approve the moves. The boatyard is a hive activity with boat repairs well underway and the Travelifts working full time to haul and launch boats.”

All of the Nanny Cay-based contractors are back up and running and working on boats.

They continue to clear up the debris around the property which is also “looking more normal day to day.”
