Question Catamaran Haul-Out on US East Coast ?

I'm just pasing through the Bahamas, where on the USA east-coast can I haul-out my catamaran for about 6 months, basically for storage and bit of DIY.
Measurements :
L = 55 Ft / w = 28 Ft / hgt = 73 Ft / weight = 19 metric tons

Take a look at Cape Marina at Cape Canaveral. Very friendly and helpful staff, as well as decent prices.

At 28ft beam only a few places can take a cat out with a travel lift - here is one Port Canaveral Marine (Formerly Scorpion's New Port Marina) Port Canaveral's Premier full service Yacht & Catamaran Haulout facility

Also- we are having some work done at Bradford Marine in Freeport Grand Bahamas. They have plenty of space and the the equipment to haul out cats. They have the ability to work on just about all aspects of a boat. I will let you know if I am happy when they are done- so far they have done what they said they would do.

Not sure how far north you can consider, but Georgetown (MD) Yacht Basin can lift you.

I get hauled at Chesapeake (VA) Yachts. They have choice of 2 hydraulic trailers to pull out wide cats, if your bridgedeck underside is suitable. Otherwise they have a travelift for up to about 24 ft 10 inches.

I'm not comfortable with lifts from under the bridgedeck even the girders are made of carbon but they are hollow. Try to contact Georgetown Yacht Basin as it is out of Hurricane-area.
Thanks for the reply

I hear you. I won't lift on the girders either. They use long styrofoam blocks between the girders. Biggest thing is if the 9 or 10 foot width is enough support.

If Maryland is OK with you, i would recommend Goergetown YB.I know they can handle your cat with ease. I had my boat delivered to this marina and only have good things to say about them. They did some work on my Beneteau that I did not feel like doing, but when it came to working on it myself they even offered me a ladder. Good people...

I am just a happy customer, not affiliated in any way.
