As I said, its not the prettiest dock and can be rolly if a passing ferry "forgets" the speed limit. But the location is central, the store is within walking distance, and the Pub (quite a good watering hole) is on the dock. Its showers are basic but you can get wifi..... Tony
Tony, with a rate like that I want to be friends because you will probably be watching over Palarran in 14 months

We should be arriving back in the Caribbean for the winter 2016/17.

Re: Leaving sailboat in BVI for the winter

Tony,
I looked up your marina. Is the rate your quoting for a mooring or dock? Regardless, it's still quite a bit less than Nanny Cay. Assuming you also charge 1.5x for catamarans it would be $1,554 per month compared to Nanny at $2,775. Both are plus electricity and water. $650 more per month for the BVI's compared to St. Maarten isn't outlandish, IMO

Nanny Cay Summer and Winter marina rates in Nanny Cay

Re: Leaving sailboat in BVI for the winter

I think Penn's Landing and the Penn's that Tony is talking about is different. Penn's Landing is in East End. He said his Penn's is in Road Town.

Re: Leaving sailboat in BVI for the winter

Guys - you are right - there are 2 Penn's (same family - different location) Penn's Landing, the better known one, is in Fat Hogs By East End. HR Penn's marina is in Road Town, its the dock next to The Pub and Conch Charters.

Palarran - the rate quoted is for a dock and Reggie Penn (the owner) doesn't differentiate between monos and cats - at least not when he's dealing with me! Since I'm virtually the only one who regularly parks boats with him, I'm cut a lot of slack...

The rates I quoted were last year's and he hasn't upped them for a very long time so I'm meeting him next week to fix the coming season rates and will pm all those who have contacted me with the news.

Palarran again - 56 footer might have to be parked on a "half finger", stern to with a mooring ball (regularly serviced) as a holder off. Its a bit more fiddly to get into it but I've had 2 cats there side by side with nice spacing in between.

You can also get taxis or the bus ($2 a person).

Our 33 runs $420 a month and we have them go aboard her once a month to exercise everything for $50, and they keep a watchful eye on everything as the managers live in site. Well worth it.

Is that with the fairly new management or are you talking about when Walter ran it? Great reputation with Walter but I haven't really checked it out since he was rather abruptly removed and I think the family decided to run it themselves.

It was John and Nancy but they seem to be gone now. They're still honoring our price, but it'll cost more next time around as they don't let ya just do the monthly checkup. Now you have to have weekly checkups at $50 a pop so we're saving $150 a month for now.

And, the new management seemed to charge much more than I am happy with on named storm prep, but what can I do from California.
