Business brisk at Caribbean shipyard

ADVERTISEMENT

Carenantilles, a shipyard in south Martinique, reports robust business this year, with more than 900 haulouts – about 40 of them using the marina’s 440-ton Travelift. It’s the largest Travelift in the Caribbean and can haul yachts up to 164 feet long and 43 feet wide, according to Yacht Insider’s Guide.

Carenantilles, a family-run business managed by father and son Jean Louis and Arthur de Lucy, is located in Le Marin, at the head of a deep, well-protected bay, and a natural hurricane hole. The town of Le Marin, with restaurants, bars and shops, is an easy dinghy ride or short drive away, as is the Marina du Marin.
