Starting even before your arrival, we can sort out all your clearance formalities, dockage and other needs to get you settled in quickly... and keep you ahead of the game thereafter.
We can save you time and hassle by acting as your agent for clearance in and out. To facilitate smooth clearance on arrival in St Maarten, all preliminary paperwork can be completed in advance by our office. We pick up passports from the yachts while still at sea and effect clearances most often before the yacht has docked.
Port & Marina Bookings
We can assist with your berthing requirements, recommending marinas that best suit the vessel and the owner's needs.
We have strong contacts with all of the major marinas and shipyards in the area, and can often secure that hard to find slot in the high season.
We can assist with all VIP services including hotel or restaurant reservations and any other onshore assistance you may require. From collecting guests at the airport to arranging a helicopter to take you to the next island, we'll make sure that your time and that of your guests will be enjoyed to the fullest.
We are able to fulfill almost any request, so tell us what you need, or let us make informed suggestions.

We can help you with every element of planning your trip: we can make recommendations, book dives and activities, restaurants and spas, etc. Our support will continue for the duration of your trip. We help you by effecting clearances on the neighboring islands (Anguilla, St Barths, St Martin, Saba, St Kitts and Nevis, British Virgin Islands), arranging dockage, as well as recommending the best anchorages and itineraries for the weather conditions.
