St. Maarten is hands down the best place in the Caribbean to berth, provision, repair and explore. With over 16 major marinas catering to vessels ranging from small water craft to large super yachts, there is a selection to fit every size and every budget. Each Marina provides a unique atmosphere with professional personnel to satisfy your personal taste. The Island’s Duty Free status acts as the heart of the maritime business in the Caribbean. If you are looking for sail makers, shipwrights, marine electricians or any other specialty, you will find the expert here. We are home to some of the largest chandleries and what you can’t find on their shelves you can have flown in the next day.
Provisioning on St. Maarten is second to none. The mix of French and Dutch cultures as well as the more than 90 different nationalities that reside on our tiny island, ensure for a large range of international culinary delights.
Find out for yourself, all that our little island wonderland has to offer, and you might find it becomes your home away from home.

On behalf of the people of St. Maarten and the St. Maarten Marine Trades Association (SMMTA), it is my pleasure to welcome you to our beautiful and diverse island nation.

More than just a services guide, we hope that you will use our annual Marine Trade Directory as a planning tool for your work and for your leisure while on St. Maarten as there is a section on the surrounding islands and a page on historical monuments. We’ve chosen to highlight our neighbors as they are a large part of what makes St. Maarten the ideal cruising destination. While on the island you should take
The time to relax on one of our 37 white sand beaches, dine ashore at one of the many restaurants that makes us the culinary capital of the Caribbean, take advantage of our night life, dive on a wreck in our marine park, or take a trip to Saba and experience one of the most charming and eco-friendly islands in the Caribbean. Between our beaches, restaurants, shopping, craftsmen, neighboring islands, and our entertainment venues, St. Maarten has something for everyone. It is rare that you won’t find what you are looking for stocked on our shelves during your stay; but if you do, it’s okay because St. Maarten is duty free with at least three direct cargo flights from Miami each week. As always, we would love to hear from you, if you have any feedback, suggestions or questions please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you once again for visiting St. Maarten. We hope you truly enjoy your stay and that you will be back to visit us again in the near future!
