YACHT HAVEN SALE COULD BE IMMINENT

The imminent sale of the hurricane damaged Yacht Haven hotel and marina appears to be more than a rumor, according to the West Indian Company Ltd. In a monthly newsletter, WICO President Edward Thomas hinted at the sale of the property which has been an eyesore on the Long Bay Road since 1989 after it was damaged by Hurricane Hugo. It was further damaged during Hurricane Marilyn.
"If the sale materializes there will be a collective sigh of relief in the community since it would signal the upcoming demolition of the derelict property which has marred the landscape of Long Bay for years," Thomas said.
WICO has expressed its availability and willingness to discuss and negotiate a business relationship with the potential new owners who may have an interest in the Long Bay landfill area.
