Many megayacht owners and guests consider Newport, Rhode Island the ideal summer season base. Others, meanwhile, prefer taking slips in New York City, and head out east along Long Island’s Gold Coast. Few, however, consider Connecticut an option. Bobby Christoph is out to change that: He's the developer behind the newly opened Bridgeport Harbor Marina.
Catering to megayachts to 250 feet (76 meters), Bridgeport Harbor Marina can further accommodate deep-draft yachts. Having its own helipad makes owners' and guests' arrivals and departures incredibly convenient, too--all the more so considering the property is just 60 miles from New York City.
The city of Bridgeport may seem an unusual choice for a megayacht marina. But, as Bobby explains in this episode of Megayacht News Radio, Bridgeport Harbor Marina is within a major redevelopment area, which is seeing major retailers, coffee shops, restaurants, and more being established walking distance away. Plus, Bobby and his team have big ideas in mind for the future of yacht shows... which don't entail big crowds, or big inconveniences.
