Slip or haulout yard in the Caribbean?

Hi, Gang,

I have a 50' performance/cruising trimaran--a Contour 50, 30' beam, 18,000 lbs, 5' draft, and will need a slip, end-tie, or possibly haul the boat out somewhere in the Caribbean for a few months November thru March. Any help or ideas, would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Mike

Mike,

IGY owns a lot of the marinas in the Lesser Antilles--

Island Global Yachting Caribbean

I've used Grenada Marine, in St David's Bay, Grenada, Bailey's Boatyard, and Jolly Harbour on Antigua for haulouts of my monohull. They all did a good job. You'll have to check with them regarding ability to haul a 30' beam. St Maarten also has a few marinas that you can find by Googling.

p.s. my daughter lives in Kailua.

Thanks, Hud...

I will contact them. Slips etc. are tough to find for tri's. A problem I never had with my 43' ketch. That will change, I think, going forward, with multihulls becoming more popular.

BYI, Kailua is a terrific place to live. I've been here about 30 years. Thanks, and aloha...

Mike

Thanks for the info. It looks as though I can keep...

my boat in the Caribbean next year. It also seems to me that the weather is worse (hurricanes) north, than it is in the more southern islands. I hope so!

Mike

Mike,

Here's an archive of North Atlantic hurricane tracks, year by year. It will at least give you a feel for which areas see the most activity. It includes the dates that the storms were active, as well.

Hud, thx again for the info. You are definitely "on it". That was a really comprehensive chunk of info, which I am going to forward to several friends of mine. You will be even more famour than you are already, if that's possible. If you need anything in Kailua, well, I guess you would ask your daughter, but I will be second on the list, I hope.

Aloha,

Mike
