The adjoined casino and nightclub will have two lobbies in a “virtually transparent design”. The 5,000 sq ft gaming floor will be connected with the marina and covered outdoor spaces.

Ra’anan Ben-Zur, Habacoa’s chief executive, said: “These new details allow us to share more about the development in a yet-to-be-seen perspective. This project will truly redefine super-yachting and luxury living, creating an upscale, sophisticated lifestyle.”

A press release says Habacoa will use renewable energy sources and materials.

When the marina opens in 2027, it will contain  250 homes, 134 berths and a 150-berth marina for boats measuring up to 200m. It is located in the South Abaco district of the northern Bahamas.
