Greetings from Nassau, Bahamas

We live on our 47' cat, "Solstice", currently docked on the south side of New Providence. We've got a big re-fit coming up so I'll be posting some items we need to buy and sell.
Aloha

Welcome.

How come I can't get stuck in the Bahamas for awhile?

We've always had good luck with Yacht Haven 242-393-8173. They will help with customs/immigration upon arrival. No fuel, but close to other sources of fuel. Shopping within walking distance as well as marine supplies. Onsite security and several fun bar/restaurants very close by. If your mast is over 65' then double-check the tide for coming under the bridges. We are 68' and need 5 boards showing (at the base of the bridges). They standby ch16/72 Deno and Sidney are the main guys on the dock and it's a good idea to be especially pleasant to them as it will pay off. (plus they're nice guys as well). If you need errands run or your boat washed ask for Donald. Tell 'em Solstice sent you and hail us in the Exumas... 'cause we know you'll go that way!

yacht haven fuel status

As of about 6 months ago, maybe longer, they quit selling fuel. They've removed the pumps and I don't think they'll start selling again anytime soon. Who knows, eh? We've been jerry canning our fuel from the filling station and then topping off at Highbourne Cay. Works for us.

Just a word of caution in believing the "latest" from the Bahamas in the Bahamas update. It said that fuel was not available at Nassau Harbour Club. I was there in May and diesel fuel was available.
