The Harbour Island Marina is situated to the south of Dunmore Town on the harbour side of the island and comprises 5 acres.
The property is used as a marina and includes 39 slips which can accommodate 50 vessels up to 150 feet. There are 4 buildings on the site which include the famous “haunted house”, the Acqua Pazza restaurant, dock master’s office and a dive shop which is rented to others.
The property slopes gently from an elevation of approximately 30 to 35 feet down to the water front. There is a standby Wilson 212 Kw generator, fuel storage of 30,000 gallons for diesel, 10,000 gallons for gas, and a 5,000 gallon water storage cistern.
This property has superb potential for further development as a resort and there is ample room for the construction of other buildings to be used as condominiums, rental units, boutiques or a hotel. This is the largest site available for sale on the harbour and has just come on the market. The famous “haunted house” is already a well-known tourist attraction which in itself provides the potential for numerous possibilities such as a gourmet restaurant or a bed & breakfast.
