Yacht Club Port de Plaisance a BluWater Destination
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 18 feet. 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 the pride of the Caribbean, the Yacht Club Port de Plaisance stands ready to provide an always-reliable Yacht Club tender to greet your vessel when you arrive at the bridge to provide safe passage from bridge to your berth. After the vessel is safely docked our capable and courteous dock attendants will assist with securing lines and shore power connections.
Concierge department personnel will provide port clearance services, to expedite your arrival or departure from Sint Maarten and ensure that your vessel, crew, and passengers are in compliance with all applicable immigration, customs and harbor regulations.
Safety and Security
Nestled within Simpson Bay Lagoon, the Yacht Club Port de Plaisance entrance channel is monitored by the Simpson Bay Lagoon Authority. The Yacht Club Port de Plaisance has 24 hour security, guarding its facility and docked vessels.
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.
