  Every lot of land for sale at The Waterfront Development will have its own boat slip.

  In neighbouring Florida harbour space or ‘boats slips’ are almost exhausted. In fact statistics
  show that there are over 20 miles of boat orders being built in Florida that have no harbour

  space. Many Floridians and US citizens are looking more at the Bahamas as a destination for

  investing in land or property because it has the additional bene t of a boat slip.                View from the adjacent Riviera Development.

  The return on your investment from owning a boat slip may be even greater than that from

  the land itself.
