This tiny marina is located on the south part of Burt Point. The access channel is only 1.7m and it can get even narrower during a swell. On top of that, you will have to turn about 90 degrees to port once past the breakwater just to get into the main basin. However, it is just a short walk away from Fort Burt and Road Reef.
Owing to the difficulties, the marina is clearly not accessible for large keelboats. Bear in mind that the marina does not allow random visiting charter yachts as it is reserved for the usage of the residents who are already part of the condominium. So, be sure to make your reservation before you decide to set off on your BVI yacht charter voyage.
Prospect Reef Marina is part of a hotel and real estate development. The small harbour is mainly used by dive boats and yacht charter companies and it is the home for a host of day-charter boats for Tortola. The government bought the resort and they are planning on improving and expanding the facilities over here. Part of the resort has recently been partially opened to the public.
The marina offers a dock space for charter yachts almost as large as 45 feet with water, fuel and resort facilities nearby for tourists and sailors. It is placed conveniently close to Road Town. However, without making prior reservations, it is not a good idea to go there by charter yacht.
