Leaving my 44 ' sailboat - Georgetown Bahamas

I'm looking for suggestions for a safe, reasonable marina to leave my boat for a couple of weeks during Thanksgiving. Hiring someone responsible for an occasional check on the boat would be a plus. Will probably be down near Georgetown - any suggestions, recommendations?

Re: Leaving my 44 ' sailboat - Georgetown Bahamas

Welcome aboard the forum! I think you'd be very safe keeping it anywhere in the George Town area. Check with George and Gillian at St. Francis Resort on Stocking Island -- they have moorings...I think a 44' would fit but you would need to check. You can take the water taxi across to town. On the town side, Exuma Yacht Club (formerly Exuma Docking) has been completely renovated (although sometimes it gets beaten by waves when the wind direction and speed is "just right"). Good luck, and happy cruising!

Re: Leaving my 44 ' sailboat - Georgetown Bahamas

I've left my 42 foot sailboat at Exuma Docking Service for a month at a time with no problem. Last time it was about $1 a foot a day, IIRC. I don't know what it is now.

If Clevon is still there, he will check on it daily and even call you if there is a problem. It can get a little choppy in there, but I rode a 45 knot SE wind in there one night with no problems.

You could also check Emerald Bay Marina. It's a nice facility just north of Georgetown. It's a bit dicey getting in and out in a northerly swell, but otherwise no problem in prevailing easterlies.
