St. Maarten/St. Martin's marine and boating industry has grown immensely over the past years becoming the favorite destination in the Caribbean for captains and crew alike.
Marine businesses offering excellent quality services and products, the duty-free status of the island and our Princess Juliana international Airport which is the second biggest only after Puerto Rico are key reasons why more and more vessels choose St. Maarten as their Caribbean home port.
If this is your first visit to our beautiful island, welcome. You will undoubtedly enjoy it here.
If you are merely returning for the season, Welcome Home!
