I left my catamaran
on dry storage
in Grenada Marine at the beginning of this year. Spice Island was not suitable for my boats's size, while Grenada Marine has the largest travelift on the island. There is plenty of place and the storage is very secure. You can ask for cradles and hurricane safety
means. It is said that the most undamaged boats during Ivan were here. They also have a skilled staff for all kinds of maintenance
, including a sailmaker
and a small Island Waterworld chandlery
. There is a bar with some food
on the strand and the neighbourhood is really beautiful.
Some drawbacks : hassle from mosquitoes, no food
store and a rather lonely place, far away from St George's and the airport
(count at least 45 mn).
For the hurricane season I balanced between Grenada Marine again and Trinidad. I eventually choosed Chaguaramas in Trinidad because I live in Europe
and couldn't take any quick care of the boat in the event of a hurricane. I also wished to visit Tobago
on the route
, which is a magnificent spot. Peakes Yacht Services in Chaguaramas is a very recommendable place, too, although a bit more expensive in my case and with a really hot climate.
