Nassau, Bahamas (PRWEB) October 14, 2013
HG Christie Ltd (HGC), the oldest and largest full-service real estate brokerage in The Bahamas, lists historical private island Walkers Cay, located 50 kilometers northwest of the mainland of the Abacos in The Bahamas. Walkers Cay, developed between the 1950’s through the 1980’s, is primed for complete revitalization to bring this private island gem back to its former glory as an upscale deep-sea fishing resort.
“For over fifty years, Walker’s Cay has been a legendary fishing resort known by fisherman worldwide as the premier deep-sea fishing location,” said John Christie, Vice President and Managing Director of HG Christie Ltd. HG Christie was chosen to represent the property in hopes that a buyer will bring the Cay back to it’s former praise as a popular fishing destination. “This is the perfect project for a fishing enthusiast developer who wishes to re-introduce this world-renowned fishing icon to the discerning sport fishing world.”
Walkers Cay has exposure to the Atlantic Ocean on both north and east sides, as well as proximity to Matanilla Shoal that gives the island unique conditions, which make fishing conditions incomparable to anywhere else.
The Cay is over 58 acres in size with a state-of-the-art electric generating facility plus a marina with approvals in place for a second marina, a new hotel, retail-space and hundreds of residential units inclusive of luxury beach and yacht clubs. Owners of Walkers Cay also benefit from desirable infrastructure already in place, such as a 2,800-foot airstrip. A private airstrip allows the ultimate in convenience and can offer accessibility to other nearby islands as well.
“Insight and vision can really reestablish Walker’s Cay as the ultimate fishing paradise,” remarks John Christie. HG Christie has been engaged in private island sales since its inception over 90 years ago and is renowned for its inventory, knowledge and expertise in this pinnacle area of real estate. John continues to muse on the prospect; “This is an irresistible opportunity for the right buyer. Properly done, this Bahamian gem of an island, Walker’s Cay, could earnestly establish itself as a world class destination, once again.”
