  • Marinas and boat services in Grenada, St Martin and Antigua

    Posted by GaryB on June 21, 2023 at 4:59 pm

    Hello Balance owners. We are putting our Carribean cruising plans together for the next 12 months and was hoping to get some advice from other owners. We plan to arrive in Grenada in November 2023 and keep our boat there at Port Louis Marina until February 2024. We will then move her north to St. Martin or Antigua so we can have better access to her during the cruising season as we commute back and forth from Seattle during that time. We would then move the boat back to Grenada in May 2024 for hurricane season. Since we will be commuting from Seattle for the next 12 months, we are eager to find marinas and services that we can trust. If anyone has experiences or referrals from these destinations, especially marinas and boat management services, please respond. Things NOT to do are also welcome. We are eager to learn from you all!

    Will reach out to current owners but I know there is a great contact in Antigua that a 526 owner currently utilizes and will source their contact.
