Absentee Yacht Management - Yacht Caretaking
If you are the owner/skipper of a private yacht and would like to leave your yacht well cared for in Rodney Bay Marina DSL Yachting will look after your boat during your absence. The berthing rental agreement is directly done with the Rodney Bay Marina office, and DSL will start the engine, air the yacht, check the batteries and control fenders and mooring lines for you on a regular basis. Upon officially clearing in a yacht is usually allowed to stay for a period of 6 weeks without the owner or crew being present. If you want to leave a yacht in St. Lucia for longer time a "Temporary importation" application can be submitted for up to one year stay at a time. Forms for this are available in the Marina office. If you wish DSL will either supervise any contracted work to be done on your yacht during your absence or undertake necessary repairs upon your approval.
