Harbortown, Ft. Pierce, FL

My wife and are thinking of berthing at Harbortown Marina in Ft. Pierce this winter. Our boat is a Brewer 12.8, with 4.5 draft. I have heard reasonably good accounts of the facility. Wondering if there are others who can offer any comments or specifics?

Re: Harbortown, Ft. Pierce

Stayed at Harbortown marina for a couple of weeks last year and had no issues with the marina itself. Very protected and well maintained. Fuel dock was under construction so no fuel. Good rest/bar. The problems we had was with the billing practices of "Whiticar Marine" who provide services for the boatyard. Probably not appropriate to go in depth in this forum, but we overpaid for services that weren't done correctly, and actually had to have an outside contractor finish the job. Considered a lawsuit but decided it was more trouble (and money) than it was worth. Thumbs up marina-thumbs down Whiticar.
