Storage on the Hard - Bahamas

I'm still trying to locate a marina/boatyard in the Bahamas where I can store a 38' cat (23' beam) on the hard. As it will be in storage for 10 to 11 months, I really would prefer dry storage rather than having it afloat for that length of time. I would appreciate any suggestions from the knowledgeable folk on this forum.
Thank you in advance.

They are probably expensive but Bradford's Shipyard can lift a 23 beam. I don't know if they would store it for that length of time.

Bahamas Haul-out

I hauled out in Georgetown with a beam of 22' (it was tight) but they had several cats stored long term including a Manta 42.

Welcome to the Forum, Double Wide. I see that you're a newbie to this Forum like me so thanks for participating and I appreciate your input. I think the Manta 42 only has a 21 foot beam and since you indicated that your 22' was a tight fit, I assume the Admiral's 23' beam wouldn't fit the lift.

Any other suggestions out there?

I'm also interested in storage options in the Abacos. I e-mailed the above mentioned Marsh Harbour Boat Yard and they indicated they are full for the forseeable future. I only need a 30-foot monohull. More suggestions for both multi and mono are appreciated.

Abacos Storage

There is another yard on Green Turtle Cay that stores sailboats on land. It is located in Black Sound but I do not remember their name. The people were very friendly ( I had them service my yamaha OB).

When I was there they were very busy hauling boats for people that had spent the winter in the Bahamas and did not want to make the long trip back to the US Northeast.

Regards,

Cameron

Cameron...you are thinking of Abaco Yacht Servics. They have a 30 ton lift and definitely store boats AND do good work. Draft into Black Sound is limited and most mono's will need some tidal help to get in. Not sure what beam they can handle for cats but as I recall....the lift is not that wide. Wouldn't hurt for Teej to check with them though:
