New for 2017 in Grenada Yachting

By on May 9, 2017. Posted in , . Tagged as .

Yacht owners and crew who have not been to Grenada for some years have been commenting on the changes they see – especially in services & facilities for yachts.  So, what has Grenada gained in the last few years?

Liferaft servicing

Sea Safety Service opened their workshop in Prickly Bay in 2016, climate and humidity controlled for Liferaft servicing and inflatable repairs.  Great to have liferafts serviced in Grenada, so we no longer need to ship them off-island, and we can take a look if any specific issues are raised during servicing.

Clarkes Court Bay

This has always been a popular anchorage and there are now many more facilities available around the Bay.  At Whisper Cove Marina, Mary and Gilles offer excellent service in their restaurant and provisioning store.  Benjy Bay hosts lively Full Moon parties, and keeps the tradition of junior sailing alive in the bay by hosting the Woburn Wind Warriors.

Of course, the biggest development in the bay is the transformation of Clarkes Court Marina, which has become Clarkes Court Boatyard and Marina under new ownership and management.  With a 242 ton boatlift, a slipway with 32 ton submersible trailer, on-site chandlery and a wide range of technical services available, we are delighted to be opening a new Island Dreams office there.

Electrical and electronics expertise

Electrical expertise is always in demand and in addition to the electrical teams at Grenada Marine and Spice Island Marine, we work with two independent electrical specialists – MarineTech & NaviComm.  Both are mobile, and MarineTech have a marina electrical store near Island Water World in St Georges.

And when you need some time away from the boat

Check the website to see what’s on at The Movie Palace at Excel Plaza.  Or how about 10 Pin Bowling?  With 8 bowling lanes, and 2 restaurants, Lavo Lanes is Grenada’s newest attraction.
