Nawi Island is located in the beautiful Fiji Islands. Easily accessible by sea and air on the island of Vanua Levu, Fiji’s second largest island. The Island is strategically situated 200m north of the quaint town of Savusavu.
Three islands (Nawi, Korovesa and Nawi Lailai) with unrivalled vistas make Nawi a newly discovered treasure.
This unique development will feature an international superyacht marina, lifestyle yacht club and central facility, freehold private island homes and a world-class resort & spa; all providing unsurpassed culture, sustainability and luxury.
NAWI ISLAND MARINA
Idyllically located in spectacular Savusavu Harbour, Nawi Island Marina will welcome the international yachting community with 130 modern slips, accomodating monohauls, catamarans and superyachts, with facilities and hospitality you would expect from only a world-class marina. The marina is conveniently situated adjacent to Savusavu town and 10 minutes away from Savusavu Airport.
World Class Facilities
Nawi Island Marina will accommodate vessels 12m to 85m in length with adequate power (up to 400 amp, 3 phase on the 85m berths) and water to all berths. Fueling facilities for diesel and petrol, fire service pedestals, waste water pump out, ferry/taxi pontoon, a marina office, cafe/bar and convenience store with chandlery will be available.
THE LARGEST SHIPYARD IN THE NORTH OF FIJI
The shipyard facility that will be built to service the visiting yachts will be constructed on a separate site nearby allowing the beautiful Nawi Island Marina to be free of the boatyard activity. The shipyard will be serviced by a wide body 75-ton travel lift allowing the retrieval of catamarans for repairs, servicing and long term on land storage when cruisers break their travels to return home. The ability to lift catamarans will be enhanced with a hydraulic trailer specifically designed to support the larger cruising cats when lifting.
SOUTH PACIFIC MARINE Shipyard
The facility will provide haul out (75-ton marine travel lift), storage, ship repairs, , vessel conversion and offshore construction services.
Nawi’s Shipyard & Service Centre is part of the development, making long stays a reality for the yachting community, including catamarans and allowing safe and long-term storage even during cyclone season and an opportunity to repair/ update 150+ yachts.
Korovesa Island will be like a beacon to the yachting community as it will also have essential services such as Government offices needed for clearance to enter into Port, a Harbour master and convenient Immigration. These are a few services which will be provided on Korovesa making it a one stop shop for all.
Currently these services are available in Savusavu
Nakama Channel runs parallel to the southern side of Nawi Island, which is the main access to the Nawi’s international superyacht marina.
Nakama Channel runs parallel to the southern side of Nawi Island, which is the main access access to the Nawi’s international superyacht marina. Over the past 30 years, Nakama creek has been utilized by mooring owners for yachting business, however, the moorings are scattered all over over the creek. Nakama Channel was officially marked by MSAF in December 2017.
Nakama Channel is a demarcated access lane with approved markers and buoys for safe navigation for entry and exit into the Nawi Marina channel. This will also see the relocation of existing moorings within the waterway.
Nawi Island Limited is working closely with an international consultant namely International Marine Consultancy who have prepared draft relocation plan identifying existing moorings with the best location to be relocated permanently to allow for navigational channel requirements to be met.
With reference to PIANC Report No .134 – 2013; “Design and Operational Superyacht facilities for 70m vessels and AS 3962 -2001” and “Guidelines for Design of Marinas” for 30m vessels, the Nakama Channel within which access into and out of Nawi Island, is 40m which allows for 85m vessels to enter the marina. The mainland arrival jetty has a 45m diameter turning circle. This allows for a safe navigational passage for all vessels.
In conjunction to this, Nawi Island Limited is currently working closely with Fiji hydrographic office and Maritime Safety Authority of Fiji to survey and demarcate access lane to the Marina with appropriate approved channel markers and buoys including relevant signage as aids to safe navigation for Nawi Island Marina.
