8 major boat yards are to be found on the island. Your yacht broker is the one who advise on which one to use, depending on the vessel location, the wishes of the yacht owner, or the size of the vessel you’re looking at, as yard cranes varies in hauling capabilities.
As a reminder, because dutch side yards issues their bills in US$, their final cost is most of the time cheaper than the ones on the french side, billing you in Euros.
Below is a list of them, together with a brief description:
With a 30 tons capable trailer, the yard can safely haul out cats up to 50 foot, within walking distance from down town Marigot.

One travel lift and one crane let them pull out vessels up to 60 feet. A little messy sometimes, but does the job.

The yard went through a major refit 2 years ago, it is well managed, offers free wifi and has my personal award of the cleanest yard bathrooms on the island.

Judith and Erick have taken over what used to be Bobby’s yard. They have an 88 tons travel lift and come handy to survey boats coming out of Oyster Pond, as they are the closest to the windward side of the island. Clean, safe and well managed.
