Anywhere to haul out in Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, or dominican republic?

Hey Folks,

New to the forum here and in need of some help.
I'm stuck in the caribbean right now and am looking to haul the boat out as I need to travel back to the states soon to take care of some work related projects. I'm looking for somewhere to haul the boat out for a few months until this covid 19 stuff clears up. Boat is currently in St. Thomas, but can't get a hold of any of the yards. I'm also having trouble finding info on puerto rico (I've called a couple yards here and they said they are closed) and dominican republic reopen information. Does anyone have any recommendations on where I can put the boat?

Try St Croix Marine in St Croix. they are 34 nm South of you in Christiansted. They are open for hauling, launching, and work.

We hauled out there for Irma and Maria and had no damage. I think they had 5-6 boats total get knocked over, compared to many, many more in St Thomas.

Downside is you may need to step your mast for hurricane season, so some additional cost.

They have a great yard staff who really care about the boats.

I have a 2006 hunter 380, will try contacting the yard in St. Croix. Do you know what price per foot is for long term storage?

Have you tried Marina Puerto del Rey in Fajardo, PR. If they're open, they can handle anything. Here's their email: marina@puertodelrey.com

Hi can highly recommend Marina ZarPar in Boca Chica, DR, about 45 minutes (without traffic) from Santo Domingo city center.
We spent the first quarter of 2019 there. Customs, immigration, naval authorities are all right there, and they seem to have some degree of local decision making authority. You'll have to contact them yourself for current entry restrictions.

I'll second that, if they're open they can handle just about anything. Three Travelifts, their 150-ton handled our 27' beam just fine.

Be ready for first-world prices, but they do have decent fencing around the storage yard, security patrols that go through yard on a regular basis at night and reasonably decent supplies within a short distance.

Puerto del Rey is open, is a short hop from St. Thomas (40 miles), is a port of entry, has travel lifts and on ground long term storage. Their number is 787-860-1000
Easy flights to mainland USA.
Fair winds,
Ed

Re: Anywhere to haul out in Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, or dominican republic?

For inwater storage, I'd suggest either Compass Point Marina or Sapphire Marina both in
STT. Sapphire is all privately-owned slips, and I'd guess about $1000-$1200/mo for a slip. Compass Point is a little less. Last I heard, Puerto Del Rey is open ONLY if you have a haul-out reservation made before 12Mar, and it's a 2-week on-boat quarantine after you check in and before you can haul out....plus a curfew from 9:00pm to 6:00 am. Best way to contact them is via email.(marina@puertodelrey.com).

Hauled out a Lagoon 450 in Puerto del Rey in Fajardo, PR, for the Hurricane Season 2018. Great Service, very safe and quiet - but expensive.

I can recommend Sam from US who lives in Fajardo and takes care of the boats on the hard.

Good luck!
