Port Ferdinand Marina & Luxury Residences is an exclusive, luxury marina resort that occupies a dramatic, 16-acre, inland waterway site on the charming and picturesque St. Peter coastline, close to historic Speightstown. As the first defined UNNA development, which has been specifically planned and built to reflect all of the group’s ethos and values, Port Ferdinand encapsulates the spirit of ‘Luxury with Soul’.

A number of the principal investors behind the UNNA group are the same Barbadian visionaries who conceptualized and created the island’s first luxury marina, the highly successful Port St. Charles, almost 20 years ago. By drawing upon their vast experience and extensive knowledge, particularly by applying the many lessons they learned through the construction and operation of their first marina, the team has now delivered the absolute ‘best of the best’ with Port Ferdinand.

Featuring 83 homes and 120 yacht berths, Port Ferdinand is a wonderful, all-encompassing property that is rich in amenities.

As such, the resort is laden with opportunities for multi-generational enjoyment of life and is absolutely ideal for families to holiday together.

All of the residences are positioned above the dock, thereby benefiting from increased privacy, as well as an optimum view across the marina. The 32 homes constructed as Phase One include a selection of two and three-bedroom homes, as well as a magnificent four-bedroom penthouse home.

All have been built and finished with the finest craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail. Owners can choose a traditional design, using beautiful marble stone floors and dark wood joinery; or a contemporary design featuring light oak joinery and limestone flooring. The show homes have been furnished by Archers Hall Design Centre and are open for viewing by appointment.

Each residence has its own berth of a minimum 60 feet, plus a dedicated boat storage room as well as a utility storage room. The resort’s contingency planning includes standby power for all electrical requirements. In keeping with the state-of-the-art facilities, Port Ferdinand has installed high quality, broadband capacity that can provide fast and dependable Internet connectivity. Primed to deliver an enviable lifestyle experience, Port Ferdinand Marina & Luxury Residences offers a comprehensive range of services and activities. The resort’s fine dining restaurant overlooks the marina and provides ‘al fresco’ tables on the water’s edge or air-conditioned comfort indoors.

For more casual fare, residents can choose between the pool-island bar or the dockside gourmet store. General amenities include: watersports centre offering motorized and
non-motorized activities; gym with a great view across the marina and yachts; full service spa; indoor and outdoor kids clubs; adult games room with a golf simulator; beach facility; fishing and sailing trips; yacht maintenance; concierge service and a business centre.

The purchase price of a home at Port Ferdinand includes an attractive suite of benefits, notably a Duty-Free Furniture Package and Duty-Free Importation of a Yacht. Residents at Port Ferdinand also enjoy shared amenities at Saint Peter’s Bay and the Port St. Charles Yacht Club, both of which are accessible via the UNNA water-taxi service. UNNA enjoys preferred access to the premier golf courses on the island including Apes Hill Club, Royal Westmoreland and Sandy Lane golf courses. Owners and guests who wish to play should contact the Concierge.

With its rare capacity to provide sumptuous residences and a diversity of outstanding leisure facilities within this exclusive marina community, Port Ferdinand provides an ideal home base to enjoy the best that Barbados has to offer.
