Reviews for Frenchtown Marina
Nice marina and staff, 2016-05-29
Captain: , Safety Harbor FL (950)

We stayed 7 nights while off island. The docks are good, electric and water average price for the island and rate was $1/foot/night. No wifi. Good restaurants nearby. Ace hardware, pueblo grocery a short walk to the west and customs to the east. We would stay again



Clean marima and friendly people, 2016-04-03
Captain: , Montreal (142)

I have left my boat for a week while visiting home for Easter and they took care of my boat during high winds, set a new lines too. Jay and his team are very friendly, nice bathroom and showers. Secure with gate on the dock for night.
2.50$ for droping a small garbage is a bit exagerate... No Wifi also... Loosing points for this! It'a a bit windy and noisy but overhall it's ok for the price. 1.00$ a foot on the dock with no services.



Noisy area, 2015-05-30

IF you need a slip or a mooring ball, this can work, but most of the docks & mooring balls are used for the resident charter fleet. There is significant Seaplane noise & some ferry wake. So I would only suggest this for short-term stays ie: waiting to pick up someone from the airport, etc. Or you need to be close to s service technician. Altherwise, you are better off anchoring in the main harbor.



Unfriendly Marina, 2013-03-06
Captain: , Washington, DC (840)

It was our first time into Charlotte Amalie and the cruising guide mentioned that there might be moorings available from Frenchtown Marina. When we inquired on Channel 16 we were told, %u201CThirty dollars a night, NO SERVICES.%u201D Luckily, I asked if dinghy dock usage was included, because they get $5 a day for their rickety dinghy dock. They do not allow using a credit card for moorings (attention IRS). The moorings are a Rube Goldberg affair that includes an old car tire. The pennants on our mooring were tangled, and required sorting out via the dinghy. Current and ferry wake from Haulover Cut makes for a very uncomfortable location. The seaplanes landing next to us were very interesting and scary. There are some nice restaurants nearby. That will be our last stay with Frenchtown Marina (see anchoring off Yacht Haven Grande Marina complex).



Taking into account what you have to work with..., 2013-03-02
Captain: , Jacksonville Florida (417)

I charted a boat from CYOA out of this marina and they did a GREAT job. The resturant there had great food and drink, the McD's was a two minute walk for b'fast, and there were a couple of local shops right there too, with a grocery store within a few minutes walk. The advice I'd give is have everything ready and closed up by dark. There are several fishermen who operate out of another dock next to the marina and they hang out there till the late hours. One of them swam over and knocked on the boat at 2am in the morning. Of course we didn't answer, what a setup, rob us just before we have to catch a plane in the morning. Harbor is busy with boats and seaplanes, be attentive!



Smallish Marina, great restaurants nearby, 2012-08-19
Captain: , Port St Lucie (514)

This marina is the base for a charter company so they don't have too many slips available. We spent two nights here in 2012 on one of their spare mooring balls. Cost was $30 per night. They have showers and trash disposal plus several restaurants. The closest is a little cafe that serves great food and just around the corner there's a place called the Pie Whole. Best pizza we've had and huge beer selection with a cozy bar that you'll often find locals at.

We found the mooring ball adequate to get some work done on our windlass system although it gets a few wakes from the ferries. People that run it are friendly and helpful.
