Dry stack marina STT
I've been looking online and I have not been able to find any info on dry stack marinas in St Thomas. I'm relocating there in early August and im looking for a dry stack slip that will hold a 22ft center console boat with a t-top.
Do these type of marinas exist on STT? If so can someone assist me with contacting them? Thanks in advance!
There are a couple of marine dry stack places on the east end of island, between Red Hook and Benner Bay Lagoon that might suit your needs. Can't think of names offhand. Hull Bay Hideaway also has a small boat storage area behind their bar and restaurant that's not a stack facility but may be suitable for storing a boat on a trailer and there's a boat launch ramp on the beach there.
Independent Boatyard 340-776-0466.
Independent Boat Yard doesn't have dry stack but they can give you contact info for those that do, one of which is on adjacent property.
Thanks for the correction. I always (wrongly) assumed that the dry stack next to them was theirs as so many of my friends have Independent haul and store their boats during hurricane season.
East End boat park - which I couldn't find the # for is next to Independent and owned by the Beer family, I think Ben is running it currently.
There are a couple others but I'm not presently on island so don't have access to phone book or my address book. There's one down by Seaside Inn and one more, I think.
The Beers do own EEBP. Ben has been managing the property since his Dad died.
I used to keep my boat there in dry storage.
And Tropic Marine?
Yes. Think there's another across from ball field or is that tropic marine?
At any rate, Wojo has a couple of options for his boat.
Thanks for all the info! The boat yard at Hull Bay hideaway may actually be a better bet. I have a trailer for my boat and would have to store it somewhere if I did a dry stack.
A few more questions. How secure is the Hull Bay yard? Also, in regards to the boat ramp nearby, can anyone tell me more about it? Is it paved? How steep is it? Do they charge a fee to use it? Thanks again for all the help.
They lock the gate where the boats are when the bar at Hideaway closes around 10pm. How safe and secure? You'll have to ask around.
The ramp isn't steep, it's paved and it's a public ramp so no charge.
Go down to Hull Bay when you get here and see if it's suitable for your needs.
If you plan on heading over to STJ and BVI, it's a longer upwind and sea haul than from the east end so depending on what you plan to do, you'll have to see which locations suits your preferences ....and your budget.
