Re: Marinas or anchorages in Nassau
There is a designated yacht anchorage between the cruise ship docks and the bridge. It is not very big, has lousy holding, there is a considerable current, and lots of boat wakes. Other than that, just fine for a brief visit. There is a secure place to leave your dinghy at a restaurant (can't remember if they charge). We were there for one night when dropping people off for the plane. There is a very nice anchorage a few miles east of Nassau (forget the name), but it is not a place that you could dinghy in from unless you had a very large, fast dink.
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
