St. Maarten has become one of the Caribbean’s premier yachting destinations, hosting some of the most exclusive and luxurious vessels in the world. We also have a thriving long-term and stopover cruising sector. The Simpson Bay Lagoon, in the island’s west, houses the main facilities for yachts. The border cuts through the lagoon and divides St. Maarten from St Martin. The Dutch side has most of the major marinas as well as a wide range of service companies and suppliers.
