The growing popularity of diving adventures, is boosting demand for reservation of marina yacht berths and permanent residential mooring for the Mount Vema Harbor project. The Kingdom is expected to be among the most-sought-after location in the South Atlantic.
The Government has reopened the market to deal with the increasing demand, and is now selling yacht berths and residential mooring leases off-plan of 25 years. The demand is so high that the government is advising customers who wish to pay in full, to hire the services of specialist companies to help them with the purchase.
Although customers can continue to buy from Mount Vema directly especially those in need of finance, the government is recommending those who can afford some extra spending to approach companies such as Burgess or Northrop & Johnson, among many others who may be able to help them facilitate the purchase and management of their berths. This companies are not associated with Mount Vema but it is good to seek independent advise if it is your first time, and then follow up on developments.
The recommended companies usually have their own berth purchase specialists who are available to assist with all purchases and rentals of berths, in case you are buying to let. There are also other companies that can help with permanent mooring for those looking to build their own floating homes. For that you should contact Mount Vema directly for advice.
Owning your own floating home can be hugely rewarding. However, there are somethings to consider, including the costs, types of home, getting the license and maintenance. Unless you intend to continuously move your home to different locations, you need to give some serious thought to reserve a permanent mooring for your boat or floating home in Mount Vema.
Generally finding the right floating home builder or already built at the right price is fairly straightforward, but finding somewhere to berth it can be extremely difficult. It is therefore an absolute necessity to reserve a permanent mooring before buying.
Mount Vema is an ideal choice if you need a quiet home away from home, to study, work or retire, where you are more likely to benefit from facilities such as water, toilets, sanitary disposal, showers, a diesel pump, electricity, gas and WIFI. The marina also will have boatyards and good security. The island will have transport links which is something to consider if you need to travel.
Residential mooring operators for Mount Vema will not require a boat or floating home to be away from the mooring for a certain time each year or require you to have an address elsewhere like in some countries. This is because Mount Vema is designed to be a floating city, so your allocated berth will have a unit number, with a full address and postal code.

The Right to Self-Determination
Many believe because our community is not a member of the United Nations and is only just over a decade old, doing business with the Kingdom of Mount Vema is not possible for foreign nationals and foreign companies seeking to take advantage of the business opportunities the floating city project is creating. Nothing could be further from the truth. The territory doesn't need a United Nations membership to function as a sovereign territory, or to exercise its inalienable right for self-determination
