Experience with Curacao Marine - Shipyard in Curacao
 
My boat is actually dry docked in Curacao Marine shipyard.
I will cross the Atlantic back to Med next May.
I need to replace the rod rigging and I need bottom painting.
I'm thinking to other "cosmetic" work as well as painting with AWL and teack's recaulcking...
I heard divergent opinions about this shipyard and would really appreciate past sailor's experiences.
Thanks

We have just left the yard and we thought that the yard, it's managers and workers were excellent.

High quality work, done on time at a reasonable price. We had bottom job, glass work, new cutlass bearings and rigging work done.

Only problems were getting the A/C fixed, we got an off-site commercial outfit and the on-site fabricator was poor with cosmetic work so we had the important mast fittings fabricated off-site.

I would be extremely careful of any dealings with Curacao Marine, there are a lot of dissatisfied cruisers. Try googling curacaomarine(dot)blogspot(dot)com for a start, there are more blogs to follow so keep an eye on it.
