The Dominica Marine Center’s Portsmouth Bay chandlery is a relatively new business for that region of the island which quickly became a favorite of the local marine enthusiasts and visiting yachtsmen around the northern coast of Dominica. This well stocked chandlery has an excellent customer-service staff and an experienced, certified mechanic. As the only local dealer for Northern Lights, Yanmar, Mercury Marine, Doyle Sailmaker, and Suzuki Marine, this chandlery has the backing and materials to meet your every need.
Following the vision and management of Managing Director, Hubert Winston, Dominica Marine Center will soon host Dominica’s first and only boat yard that will offer full-service marine work for small to medium sized vessels that could fit on a trailer. Due to the scope of this facility, service on large engines up to 350 hp will be handled with ease and competence.
Contact Ms. Edith Walter, store manager or Mr. Ignatius Mitchell, chief mechanic today. They are both eager and ready to work on your behalf.
Ed note: Dominica is one of the few “unspoiled” islands left in the Caribbean. It is much like the rest of the Caribbean was 50 years ago. Although there still are no Marinas or Boatyards, it is definitely worth a visit on your cruising itinerary. The people are friendly and accommodating to cruisers…and, best of all, you can get Northern Lights parts and service!
