Our Services

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 250′ LOA, with drafts up to 16′. Nearly half of the marinas alongside and Mediterranean-style berths are configured to accommodate mega-yachts.

For the convenience of our guests, the Yacht Club Port de Plaisance provides a marina office facility at our North Marina (near the Princess Port de Plaisance Hotel & Marina) location. Daily Marina Office hours are from 7:30am to 6:00pm AST, seven days a week.

Inland Lagoon Offers Safe Anchorage 

Conveniently located within Simpson Bay Lagoon, considered by many as the finest anchorage in the Caribbean, 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 through Marigot Bay via the Sandy Ground Bridge (from the French Side). The Simpson Bay Lagoon entrance channel maintains a controlled depth of 15′ to 20′ monitored by the Simpson Bay Lagoon Authority.

‘Bridge-to-Berth’ Escort Service

A full-service facility that prides itself on the professional delivery of services and a distinctly Dutch-French-Caribbean brand of hospitality, the Yacht Club Port de Plaisance stands ready to provide a Yacht Club tender to greet your vessel whenever you arrive at the bridge and provide safe passage through the 12-square-mile Simpson Bay Lagoon to your berth in Cole Bay, where capable and courteous dock attendants assist with securing lines and shore power connections.
