Nassau Bahamas Marinas

I will be crossing from FL to the Bahamas in mid April and spending a few weeks in the Near Bahamas. I am looking for an inexpensive option to leave my 50' sloop (draws 6'6") in an around Nassau. Does anyone have recommendations for reliable, inexpensive marina to leave her seasonally or long term (perhaps even over hurricane season).



Thanks,


John

Depends on your interpretation of “inexpensive”. Palm Cay is decent. Even if free, I recommend avoiding the Ponte Marina. Surge can be dangerous. Most stressful night in years aboard a boat was in their slip. Several vessels damaged in calm weather.

Thanks for the input. I will steer clear Ponte Marina.



Best,
John
