Panama Haul out, bottom work & maintenance

I have my Beneteau First 36.7 on the Pacific side of Panama, near Boca Chica. I need to get her to a boat yard where she can be hauled out, the bottom done, routine engine maintenance, and a couple of repairs done (e.g. new backstay, depth finder repair, tachometer replacement).

Can someone please recommend a good, reliable, economical boat yard? I'm prepared to take her to near Panama City if that is the closest.

Any personal recommendations?

Many thanks.

John

Re: Panama Haul out, bottom work & maintenance

The least expensive for doing the bottom will probably be the rails at Balboa Yacht Club. Check the Panama City Cruisers Guide for the other work.

Thanks Paul L. Do you or anyone else on the forum have a contact at Balboa I can email and get some more specifics?
Many thanks.

Re: Panama Haul out, bottom work & maintenance

Balboa Yacht Club is most interested in bottom jobs, you don't get to spend much time on the railway and you will need to do the underwater stuff quickly. Your only other choice is a crazy expensive place for big boats.
