The width of the French bridge is 10m on paper, so with your width that would be cutting it close. The marina at Anse Marcel has not changed ownership
as far as I know, it is part of the resort there. I didn't notice any boats I'd call liveaboards there, just some permanently parked vessels and some transients.
Bay is the sunsail/moorings base and there is little room in there. I believe transients can take a mooring
inside if one is available, but dockage will be either not available or only available at a steep price
. The entrance can be a tough one in unsettled conditions.
St. Martin is a nice place to live aboard at anchor
in, but not my first choice if I were at a dock
. I've spent weeks at anchor
in places like Grand Case and outside as well as inside the lagoon and MarkJ has spent months there; but we are not dock type boaters.
If you want to stay at a dock for a longer period of time for a good price
while being safe and having access to shoreside facilities, you might want to look at Point-a-Pitre on Guadeloupe
. I've been at that dock and it is clean, cheap
, friendly and safe. If you prefer an Anglophone area then dockspace in the U.S. Virgin Islands
can be had at reasonable rates in season. Antigua
offers dock space as well, but at a bit higher price both for the docks and the rest of the cost-of-living.
