I can personally recommend Dennis Point Marina in Drayden, Maryland
, near St. Marys City. This is off the Potomac
River not far up the river from the Bay proper. Welcome to Dennis Point Marina & Campground. Fifty Acres of Beautiful Waterfront call 301 994 2288 | DENNIS POINT, a world away | WDP
I have hauled my boat there for the last three summers - between winter cruises - as have numerous other cat/tri owners with wide beams. I'm not cruising this winter and I expect my boat will stay on the hard
thru next summer while I do significant re-fit.
My beam is 25'3" and DP is the only location in the Ches Bay region that can haul us other than Georgetown
Yacht Basin much further north on the eastern shore of Maryland
(and mega yacht facilitie$ in Norfolk/Portsmouth). That said, it is a tight fit as their lifting well is 27'. For wide cats we usually line the lip of the lifting well with carpet and set up at high tide to take advantage of the narrower beam nearer the waterline. DP also has been willing to haul my boat and other Catanas on the chainplates, which GYB has refused to do so far (that I know of). This may not apply to you.
This is a terrific DIY yard. It is not necessarily a yard for non-DIYers as the maintenance
staff is small and are not sailors. Good showers, pool, and restaurant/bar. But it's kinda out in the boonies and has poor wifi
and cell service
, depending on your provider.
And, compared to other Ches Bay area facilities, very reasonably priced.
