You have few options both sides , Ducht and French, any marina in the ducht side are well secured in the season, i run away from the ones located at Island Water
world area, French side , Port Louis,Anse Marcel etc... are ok to me, Anse Marcel in hurricane
season ? dont think so unless you book with a year in advance, for the hurricane
season there is lots of boatyards in the area, BoBy`s its for me the best in security regards, but not liveaboard
allowed if you dont pay a extra fee, St Marteen shipyard close to the airport
looks nice to, but again a extra fee if you do your own work and live aboard , no problem if you leave the boat there and get work done by the staff, its far away from town , keep in mind BoBys and the others in the ducht side ask for masts down in low season no matter what, in the French side there in 4 boatyards , Polypat close to sandy ground , dirty, security its a ???? joke, removal
mandatory, book in advance because its the favorite for catamarans , filling the yard in short time.
Time Out Boat yard, dirty to but very friendly , mast
down mandatory, they secure the boats with straps to ground, not my ideal place, very close to the laggon water level, in a rising tide no idea, i dont like it, security same as polypat.
JMC, boatyard, run away from this one, is kind of a prison, no security , thiefs around, but they have probably the best metod to secure boats in Cane Season, a huge hole in ground and your boat inside, very dirty...
they use the only travelift in the french side, polypat and timeout use old cranes.
Geminga Boatyard , dirty , very friendly and with the best boat work services around , include a rigging
, welding etc... they use a mobile lift
crane , very safe for catamarans and monohull
, they allow to keep your mast up, and they secure the boats with straps to ground screws, they have a bar restaurant in place to.
