La Marina du Marin in the south of Martinique is not to be missed if cruising in the Caribbean. Its quality infrastructure extends to 830 berths and 100 anchorages including a pontoon that can accommodate yachts up to 60m.
The beautiful Bay of Marin is one of the best protected and most hurricane safe in the region. The island in general is known to be safe, with a low crime rate, and in the marina you'll be assured of secure access to the pontoons, cctv security and the presence of staff.
In 2010 a large commercial area was developed to give guests access to amenities on site including restaurants, bars, supermarkets, post office and other shops. Martinique is well known for being a choice spot for provisioning in the Caribbean with France's best products available.
La Marina du Marin is also a renowned centre for refit and maintenance works with a large number of nautical service providers based in the marina. These include the state of the art Carenantilles boat and shipyard which prides itself on quality of service, the reliability of its yacht lift machines (440 tons & 80 tons) and on respecting European environmental standards.
Recommended by many captains for the high standard and quality of services available onsite, the yard has now a new upgraded haul-out capacity with a travelift of 440T. The shipyard can handle complete refits and repairs on any size and type of yacht up to 50m.
