FLIBS18: Checking the Tide: Which is your favorite port?

ADVERTISEMENT

Yacht crew see the world from the water and spend much of their time in ports. As crew prepared for this year’s 59th annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, several took a moment to tell us about their favorite stops.

Eng. Jeff Marshall
M/Y Tail Lights
116’ Azimut
Anywhere in the Exumas, all of the marinas and anchorages. It’s the best because there’s nothing there but the best beaches and snorkelling for charters.

Deckhand Devin Martinez
M/Y Octopussy
143′ Heesen
Fort Lauderdale, it’s close to everything and it’s in the states. And there are good gun ranges. I’m from Texas.

Bosun Alex Castillo
M/Y Sorcha
152’ Northern Marine
In St. Petersburg, we’re in the Harborage Marina – they just built five new megayacht slips. The atmosphere is like a slowed-down Fort Lauderdale. Plus the great beaches like St. Pete Beach, Treasure Island and Clearwater Beach. This is my home port.

Deckhand Rory Lind
M/Y Lampin’
106’ San Lorenzo
I cannot lie, Fort Lauderdale is my first. But I like Cape Town for its natural beauty , the way the mountains flow up from the beach. I like Fort Lauderdale because we don’t get the big boats at home and it’s warm.

Capt. Daryn Dalton
M/Y Sevenstar
86’ San Lorenzo
It’s always good to arrive home, Fort Lauderdale. My wife and dog are here. Everything is here, and lots of new companies have come here to start businesses. Two years ago it felt stale, there is a new energy now.

Lead deckhand Alex Sabel
M/Y Silver Lining
164’ Christensen
Boothbay Harbor, Maine. It’s quaint, small and secluded. It’s great for guest trips, great scenery and hikes.

Mate Martin Cunocka
M/Y Nomadess
121’ Benetti
There are plenty of them, Barcelona, San Remo, Antigua, especially English Harbor. I used to like the night life, but these days I enjoy the culinary experiences.

2nd Stew Chenelle Godfrey
M/Y MAG III
145’ Benetti
I’m new to the industry, I have no idea. We came from the Australian Docks in Palm Beach and I liked Rybovich. I’m from England, but I want to visit Canada.

Mate Mike Johnson
M/Y W
130’ Westport
Nantucket. I love the vibe of the island. I like to hit up town and the beaches. I’m from there. Do I swim there? No, that’s why I moved here.

Capt. Sam Paige
M/Y Southern Star
112’ Westport
Harbor Island in the Bahamas. It’s close, there’s an airport. It is accessible but not accessible to the public. There’s nowhere else with that pink sand. The harbor pilots bring you bread and they love showing people the area.

Chief Stew Nadia Ghali
M/Y Dream On
St. Maarten. I love Port De Plaisance, it is so beautiful and you can go anywhere from there, St. Barts. The whole world is mixed there, it’s big and small at the same time. You find all languages and all food.
