Hard Stand options Sicily or south Italy toe of the boot

Hello CF, planning to sail from Antalya across to Sicily Aug-Oct, as usual the big decision is where to store the boat next. We usually choose hard stand. Does anyone have experience of hard stand in Sicily or southern Italy near Sicily ie toe of the boot eg Crotone? Previously the boat has been on hard stand at Dubovnik, Bodrum and currently at Antalya. If anyone would like info/prices re those destinations let me know. Cheers, Dean

The Porto Turistico Marina di Ragusa in Sicily offers hard standing in their boat yard. I believe they do noy allow you to stay aboard though nor work on the boat.

The Manoel Island Yacht Yard in Malta also offers hard standing and you can stay aboard and work on the boat yourself.

Hard Stand options Sicily or south Italy toe of the boot

hi, my home port is Catania, Sicily east coast. Obiouvsly we have facilities to haul and hard stand.
My forty footers was on hard stand this winter for 150 month, haul and launch for 400-600, taxes not included.
I have not heard of someone asking for live aboard during hard stand, but usually it is no problem to work inside your boat, just ask for that, I think the stay is allowed in office hours inside the property, however the port is really 200 meters from the city center and well served (for southern Italy standards...)in terms of public transportations
Sadly It is forbidden to work yourself outside the boat for safety?!? and environmental issues... if you need antifouling on a 43 footers you can expect 500-800 on top of hauling, stay and launching prices aforementioned.
Any questions just message privately or email me

Thanks marcofailla, thanks for that info, we were planning to leave the boat in storage on the hard stand. Once it is lifted out we would stay nearby in the town and I like the look of Catania. I will message you for more info
