A place to leave my yacht over the Darwin Cyclone season

Hi All,
I am looking for information / direction from those more knowledgeable than I as to where to leave my 46 foot, 13 Tonne, 24 foot beam Cat in Darwin for the cyclone season... I should arrive in Darwin about the end of July 1 week into August pending on weather etc.
Like everyone... not wanting to spend a small countries GDP per month on a pen... I am only looking to keep her there during the wet.

Possibly somewhere to pull her out onto the hard could be an option...
Pylon mooring is also another option.

Thanks

Re: A place to leave my yacht over the Darwin Cyclone season

There is a multihull club in Darwin which has a cyclone storage yard up near the Spot on Marine boat yard for storing multihulls during the cyclone season. I think they use a jinker system and the big tides to get them in and out of the water. You might enquire re possibility of storing it there.

The advice from RaymondR is spot on. Just remember, if a cyclone does actually come in storm surge may very well become an issue.

Hi all and thanks for the info... sorry about the delay in replies... do not get the internet all the time.

Downunder.... The designer is a gent in FNQ why do you ask??

tonysail1 and raymondR... thanks... got the boss looking at it now... up on the hard would most likely be better as i am looking to place a forward looking sonar onto one of the hulls... not sure if it will be the Garmin or the Simrad... am heading back to FNQ and it will be during the whale season if all goes well..

Greatly appreciate your help...
