Where to sell in the Caribbean

Which part of the Caribbean would be the best to put a boat up for sale? I'm currently considering Antigua and Grenada. Any thoughts appreciated...

Re: Where to sell in the Caribbean

It depends if you want a quick sale or really want the best price and time is no problem (which it is, considering the cost of storage or maintenance).

The BVI has a very active market on used boats, with a lot of Sunsail/Moorings charter boats but also many others on the market. There are several professional brokers and access to the boats for viewing and survey is excellent. The BVI caters to the American but also to the European market.
If your target buyers are French then St. Martin, Guadeloupe and Martinique are good choices.
I don't know about Grenada, but I did look at several yachts in Antigua when I was searching for a boat and believe it is more of a niche market (lots of Oysters, for example) than the BVI.
