Over the years, the Yacht Club Port de Plaisance a BluWater Destination has continued to evolve and enhance the facility and its services in order to meet the needs of each vessel that graces our docks. Thus, our mission to accommodate all marine goers with a safe, friendly, service oriented facility has never changed and only improved year after year.
The origin of the Yacht Club Port de Plaisance a BluWater Destination begun with the opening of what is now known as the South Marina in 1991. With much success in the marina industry, Phase 2 was built in the summer of 2001 and officially opened its doors in the winter of 2002, with the vision of being the number one marina in the Caribbean. To accomplish this, we have created packages especially tailored to best accommodate the unpredictable schedules of vessels, especially larger yachts. Our facility has grown from accommodating yachts of 150′ to now servicing yachts of 260’+. With our experienced staff onboard, we understand the needs and demands in the yachting industry better than any of our competitors and invite you to let us show you.
