Marina to store on the hard, Sicily or Southwest Italy

Hello: I am looking for any recommendations of marinas in Sicily the west coast of Italy south of Rome to store our sailboat this winter on the hard. We also need some mechanical/electrical/fiberglass work done, so I appreciate any comments on competent marinas for both storage and repair. Thanks very much! It seems a little crazy to have to think about winter when it's sunny in August. I'd much rather be thinking about summer plans in the middle of winter!

Crotone is a rather popular solution in south east Italy.. Personally, I had a pleasant experience: I had some major works tuo my 31 boat.

Hello,

I agree. We left our boat in Crotone 2 years ago and all was OK.

Regards, Luis

Re: Marina to store on the hard, Sicily or Southwest Italy

My on-line Cruise Guide site for Europe has a page for W Italy, and a page for Sicliy, S Italy and Malta..
Both pages include brief descriptions of the most popular layup yards along their coasts, and web site links for those yards - if I could find them! And there's a sketch plan showing locations and international airfieds.

Most of the info comes from reader's emails, or comments added by people who log in to the site.

The quick way to find information about many European cruising areas is just to Google "jimb [location]" - where location may be "W Italy", "Sicily", N Spain", or wherever! The page link usually pops up near the top of the list!

Oh. OK. I guess I'm confused because this was MdR response to my email query about storage in May 2018.
