Plans to construct a luxury superyacht marina at Victoria Harbour, Vancouver island received a boost last night as Victoria’s Mayor and Council unanimously approved a crucial development permit.
Two buildings that will sit either side of the now reduced 29-slip moorage marina have been granted the permits.
