Silent Resorts and EcoIsland Development have announced Club Ki’ama Bahamas, which is claimed to be the world’s first equity club to deliver carbon-neutral solar yachts and ultra-sustainable solar residences.  Club Ki’ama is situated within the new Ki’ama Bahamas enclave on Elizabeth Island, near Great Exuma. Construction is set to start this month on Club Ki’ama, which represents a co-ownership opportunity that is a combination of solar-powered, oceanfront homes, and a fleet of crewed yachts, along with electric day boats, a beach club, spa, and restaurant.

Once completed, it will have the least environmental effects of any projects in the Caribbean. EcoIsland Development partner Steve Dering said: “Club Ki’ama represents the future for sustainable residential and resort development.

“It’s incumbent on us to protect Elizabeth Island’s ecologically sensitive environment while thoughtfully creating comfortable spaces where our owners and their guests can enjoy the best of the Bahamas.

“Our equity club provides abundant owner use while consuming less land with fewer homes and adds an incredible yacht experience. We’re hopeful that our first-of-its-kind club and community will set the standard for eco-conscious development around the world.”
