Looking at yachts, and here in the west US, >50' berths are much more rare. I know there are lots in the mediterranean
, but curious about round the world
berths like Marquesas
, New Caledonia
Well, I can't speak for the whole world, but on both coasts of the US, E. Canada
, we've had no problems with 55'. We can't get into every marina that smaller boats can (we have a 10' draft
, so this is also limiting).
I guess it just takes more advance planning on a bigger boat
. We call ahead a lot more than we used to on the 43 footer. But, certainly doable where we've been.
