New state-of-the-art Superyacht repair/refit center in the Caribbean

December 3, 2016

After having undergone a massive 12 Million Euros restructuring, Carenantilles Shipyard is the largest full service marine refit center in the Southern Caribbean. It is located in the south part of Martinique, in the gorgeous bay of Le Marin, a deep water, well protected harbor and a natural hurricane hole.

Equipped with brand new 440-Ton & 80-Ton Travelift, Carenantilles is able to undertake any project from a "quick fix" to a complete refit and repair on yachts up to 164ft (50m) long, 43ft (13m) wide and max draft 14ft (4 m). The yard spreads on a 6-acres recently fully coated facility, along with a 660 ft floating work dock and offers power up to 125 amp, single and triple phase. The whole facility is equipped with cutting edge recovery and water treatment systems. Carenantilles has a team of highly qualified technicians and also works with the best marine subcontractors from the USA and Europe.

Services provided onsite include: custom fabrication and welding; carpentry; mechanical/engine work; propeller (shaft) repair; electricity; electronics; composite work; painting; hydroblasting, canvas shop and sail loft. The yard is equipped with video surveillance and has a 24/7-security team. There is also a well-stocked chandlery onsite as well as a restaurant and bar. A full size grocery store is within walking distance.

Carenantilles is a family-run business, managed by father and son Jean Louis and Arthur de Lucy. Their welcoming and dedicated team provides attentive and personable services to their guests. The charming town of Le Marin, with restaurants, bars and shops are an easy dinghy ride or short drive away, as is the modern, first class Marina du Marin.

The marina is set at the head of one of the most gorgeous and protected deep bay of the Caribbean, at the southern end of Martinique. With 830 slips, 100 moorings and close to 80 shops on the premises, this is the largest marina of the whole region. Yachts up to 200ft (60m) long with up to 15ft (4.5m) draft can be accommodated. Dockside services include 220/400V / 125 amp 3 phase power, wifi, and a latest technology fuel dock with high speed pumps offering high grade clean gas and diesel (duty free available), onsite customs clearance and 24/7 video security. Six restaurants and bars, catering to all tastes and budgets, an array of shops, chandleries and marine professionals can be found on the premises. Excellent provisioning outlets are within a few minutes drive from the marina.

A wonderful English speaking team, led by hands-on and courteous managers Eric and Simon Jean Joseph offer concierge services and are more than happy to assist the visitors.
Lamentin International Airport, with direct flights from the USA and Europe is just 30 minutes away from the marina and the shipyard.
