A major venue for local fishing will soon be home to a popular restaurant.
As part of the newly announced George Town Yacht Club, the team from The Cracked Conch will be managing a restaurant there. The development, expected to be completed in November 2012, will be a multi-level facility located adjacent to the Barcadere Marina in George Town.
Matthew Moore, the general manager of the Cracked Conch restaurant and Macabuca Bar and Grill, said he was excited about the move.
“The Cracked Conch team is thrilled to be involved with the Barcadere Marina project and the opening of the George Town Yacht Club,” Moore said. “Everyone involved is looking forward to bringing their experience and knowledge down to the yacht club this fall and being a part of Cayman’s newest restaurant and marina.”
Located right on the waterfront at the Barcadere, it will be the perfect place to relax on Grand Cayman after a day out on the water and share fishing stories.
It will also serve as a venue for parties, as the clubhouse will be available to members of the public looking to host events such as fishing tournament functions, holiday festivities and business meetings.
The building team, led by Phoenix Construction, includes CGMJ architects, BCQS project management, Megasystems electrical and plumbing, Polar Bear air-conditioning as well as Oasis Pool and Spa. All, including Phoenix Managing Director Shayne Howe, are excited and proud to be a part of this historic development.
“Neville Scott has a vision for the yacht club clubhouse that is consistent with everything he is doing at the Barcadere – it has to be first class and it has to be perfectly executed,” Howe said. “This facility will be a magnet for the boating and sport fishing community locally and internationally and we feel privileged to be involved in the creation of what will be Cayman’s first truly world class yacht club experience.”
The yacht club is the latest phase of development at the Barcadere, which currently features 83 available slips, the Scotts Landing/ValvTect Fuel Station and the new Scotts Marine boat showroom, chandlery, boatyard and service centre, which is set to be the largest and most comprehensive of its kind in the Cayman Islands.
