Number of 50-60' yacht marinas worldwide?

Just curious if there is anecdotal information about, or, even better, a database of marinas and berth sizes.

Looking at yachts, and here in the west US, >50' berths are much more rare. I know there are lots in the mediterranean and caribbean, but curious about round the world berths like Marquesas, Niue, New Caledonia, etc.,

Well, I can't speak for the whole world, but on both coasts of the US, E. Canada and Europe, we've had no problems with 55'. We can't get into every marina that smaller boats can (we have a 10' draft, so this is also limiting).

I guess it just takes more advance planning on a bigger boat. We call ahead a lot more than we used to on the 43 footer. But, certainly doable where we've been.

Marquesas - no marinas
Niue - no marinas
New Caledonia -'multiple marinas that can take 50 ft yachts
