Haulout and storage in Puerto Rico

We are a 46 foot Beneteau, currently in the Turks and Caicos and heading south.

We would like to know where we could have our boat hauled out and stored for hurricane season in Puerto Rico.
Or the Dominican Republic as second choice.
Thanks in advance for replies

Puerto del Rey has good haul out facilities in Fajardo, but they tend to fill up early. The Rigging Shop (Quino Sanchez) in Fajardo provides services for hauled yachts at Puerto del Rey (during hurricane season) and maybe able to help secure a spot. Our Beneteau 473 is currently was just hauled there while we are in the States for a few months.

Re: Haulout and storage in Puerto Rico

Megerin - I've been using Nanny Cay for years and find them a good dockyard to work with. Did you just put the boat on the hard (dodging all the boats on their way to the water)?

Re: Haulout and storage in Puerto Rico

Thanks. We actually hauled out end of May & won't be returning until Jan.1
We had used them before with our previous boat but just thought we might look into PR for better rates. On our way from the US last season we did enjoy Palmas del Mar marina & met people who use that boat yard there but they have been impossible to reach. Oh well, love Nanny Cay, & will check things out for next year later on. Best regards
