Safety and Security
Nestled within Simpson Bay Lagoon, the Yacht Club Port de Plaisance can be accessed through Simpson Bay’s protected inland waterway via the Simpson Bay Bridge (from the Dutch Side) or for smaller vessels through Marigot Bay via the Sandy Ground Bridge (from the French Side). The Simpson Bay Lagoon entrance channel maintains a controlled depth of 17 feet and is monitored by the Simpson Bay Lagoon Authority.
Due to the caliber of luxury yachts that frequent the Yacht Club, owners and captains are often reluctant to publicize their itinerary and compromise the privacy or safety of their guests. With this in mind, our personnel are trained to maintain the highest levels of confidentiality comparable to the most upscale resorts, and to refrain from indiscriminately divulging guest identities or vessel names whenever possible. As a result, the Yacht Club has earned a loyal following of yacht owners and captains worldwide.
As the Caribbean’s most elegant mixed-use marina, the Yacht Club Port de Plaisance is a professionally-managed full service facility with 90 slips for sail and motor-powered vessels from 40′ to 260′ LOA, with drafts up to 16′. Nearly half of the marinas alongside and Mediterranean-style berths are configured to accommodate mega-yachts. As you dock with us, line handlers stand at the dock, ready to catch the lines and tie your vessel securely to the docks. This includes tender assistance when docking, along with tender dockage.
