Re: Bahamian haul out facilities

There's a couple I know of, I don't know what your boat length and beam is:
In Freeport at Bradford Marine they can haul very large boats and also ships. In Spanish Wells there is a boat yard with an elevator that can haul probably about 25' beam or so (nice people there at the yard). There is also a lift in Marsh Harbour and (I think) in Man-O-War.
Hope this helps,
Brian

Re: Bahamian Haul Out Facilities

Hello,
I had very a good experience at bradfords in Freeport. Ask for Thurber or Ralph, very helpful. Stay far away from knowles marina (old running man marina) next to sunrise resort, many many unhappy customers including myself, terrible.

Re: Bahamian Haul Out Facilities

There was a boat yard in Nassau to the east of Nassau Yacht Haven where several sailboats were hauled when we were there a few years ago. They also did gas and diesel engine repairs. I don't, however, remember their name, and it might have changed since then. Perhaps someone on the site who reads this might remember. Good luck and good sailing, Ron

Re: Bahamian Haul Out Facilities

Go to noonsite.com with a list of boatyards in the Bahamas. There are three listed for Nassau. Good luck and good sailing, Ron

Re: Bahamian Haul Out Facilities

If you get this far, the Caicos Marina and Boatyard can haul you out on Providenciales.
