Broker + Marina for Storage on the Hard in Grenada

Dear all,

Can anyone recommend a good broker in Grenada? We are selling our boat after finishing our trip and need to find a good broker - preferably one with high enough volume to advertice in yachtworld.com

If anyone knows of a good Marina (besides Spice and Granada Marina) that might have space on the hard I would also appreciate any info.

Thanking you all beforehand!

Cheers

Jens

FYI: The Yachtworld broker listing does not show any for Granada.

Selling your boat in Grenada is not the thing to do. You will be very old and in a wheel chair before you encounter any buyers. - - There are only two boatyards in Grenada and they are full up by June/July and start to empty around November. Storage is not cheap.
- - If you want to sell your boat you need to put it where the customers are - in the Caribbean that means Antigua to Puerto Rico. It is too expensive and difficult for prospective buyer to get to the other islands. And with the lack of customers the price you will be offered is going to be very low.
- - There are plenty of boats for sale in Trinidad as it is the "end of the road" for the annual migration. More than few "cruisers" quit when they get there and put the boat up for sale and fly home.
- - I have been living on my boat in Grenada for the last 4 years solid and intermittently for since 2004. "Dead-end" cruisers - those who give up and fly home usually hire somebody to take the boat back to Florida for them. And then they sell it there.
