Marina Recommendation on St. Thomas USVI?

I am looking for a marina recommendation for a quick stay on St. Thomas with my Leopard 46. I need to drop off some guests, re-provision, and pick up some new guests in late November. I would like to spend 2 nights in a slip. Doesn't need to be fancy, but laundry onsite/nearby is important.
Thanks!

I would try Crown Bay Marina. Everything you requested is there. http://www.crownbay.com

Crown Bay is an easy walk to the grocery store too which is nice. You can walk the cart right back to the marina despite the cab drivers offering to take you for $20.

We had good luck staying at the Independent Boat Yard for a couple of days. Not close to the center of town but convenient to some stores and the folks were nice.

Independent no longer does transient slips and it's not very convenient to swap crew. Assuming crew is flying in and out.

Rubikoop is right. Crown Bay is the most convenient. Ten minute taxi ride from the airport, very professional staff, nice grocery store right there, cheaper one a few blocks away.

Re: Marina Recommendation on St. Thomas USVI?

crown bay is pretty good and close to the airport. if you want a nicer facility there's yacht haven, real clean well run facility and there's a laundry and a grocery store nearby, can't tell you what the dockage prices are like though last time I was there i was working on a yacht.
