Safe marina in Nassau, Bahamas?

Hi,

I'm going to be arriving in Nassau, Bahamas soon and plan to be there for a few weeks. I saw the list of marinas on noonsite (Nassau — Noonsite), but am not sure what the best option is. I do want to be in a marina instead of anchored, but am not sure which marina is best. I definitely want one that is secure where nothing is going to disappear if I leave my boat for a day or two. Any recommendations in which to go to or which to avoid?

Both Nassau Harbour Club and Nassau Yacht Haven have 24 hour security, and decent facilities.
Note: I haven't been there since the 1990s.

Nassau Harbor Club gets my vote. We have stayed there twice this year. Close to shopping, good security, and a nice pool. Peter is a very helpful guy.

Another vote for The Nassau Harbour Club. The manager, Peter is cruiser friendly.

Another vote for Peter and Nassau Harbor Club. The security does frequent patrols; however, don't invite an easy theft from the water...lock your dinghy/motor, and you might want to back into the slip if you're leaving it a few days (this goes for any of the marinas on the Nassau side).
