Boatyard Storage for 3 months from St. Lucia to St. Martin

We need to store our 40 ft catamaran from mid January 2020-mid April 2020.

We are looking for recommendations and feedback (positive and negative) for boatyards from St. Lucia and St. Martin or anywhere in between.

Where would you store your vessel and why?

Re: Boatyard Storage for 3 months from St. Lucia to St. Martin

St Martin/Sint Maarten has by far the best choice of boatyards within your geographic range.

I've only stayed in the water in Sint Maarten so don't have personal knowledge of being hauled out and staying ashore (I'm only replying since no one else has!) You might start by looking at this old thread Boat yard in Simpson Bay in St Maarten to get some suggestions

St Kitts,

Very professional lift and careful handling in the yard. Good prices.

No commercial links, just a happy customer.

Unless you have a laundry list of items to attend to on the hard, for 3 months i would just leave it in a marina..

For marinas, the French islands have goo pricing. Had my boat at le Marin for two months. S Martin, the marina next to lagoonies has also good pricing. Have left it there too for a month.
As for yards. You cannot beat the pricing at St Kitts. No cat adder. Also had it at polypat at St Martin for glassfiber work.
For all above, I would do it again. Satisfied.
