Cruising Sailors

The harbor is referred to as San Andreas (old harbor) or Caucedo (new harbor). Coming in you will pass the new harbor (mega port) and leave it to port. As you turn to starboard at the end of the channel entering, you will leave the old harbor also to port. Favoring your port side, you will then leave the private club Nautico to port, and ahead you will see the Marina. The bottom is mostly sand and mud and the controlling depth is 10 feet, (when the wind is out of the NE, the depth will be less by about one foot. And if you arrive at low tide, allow for another foot.) Vessels drawing more than 7’ should contact the Marina before entry for assistance.

Marina Zar-Par offers courtesy rides to the airport for dropoffs. On request the Marina will also drop off and pick up those that want to grocery shop in Boca Chica, the large tourist town just to the east of the Marina. The town has banks, as well as a number of grocery stores. 24 hour security keeps the Marina private and safe. The Marina is well illuminated at night as well.

Marine Hoist

Marina Zar Par: 70 Ton Marine Hoist, 28’ INSIDE OPENING

It’s one thing to see your boat cradled on a hoist during repairs, but quite another to watch the marine hoist in motion – well, slow motion — as it maneuvers ever so slowly and deliberately to haul or launch a boat.

The bigger the boat, and thus necessarily the hoist, the more delicately the hoist must be handled. Marina Zar Par’s (Boca Chica, DR) shiny new red hoist has a 70 ton capacity and a 28’ (8.4 m) inside width – that’s wide enough to haul most boats, including about 90% of all the catamarans that populate the Caribbean.

The process began before launch when, following extensive work with the boat on blocks, the hoist was moved into place and the boat secured in the slings.

For a short haul, a boat might remain “in the slings” from haul to launch.

Marina Zar Par’s hoist operator waits to catch the high tide before beginning the slow dance from the boatyard to the water, a wise precaution since the draft to access the pit is maximum 8’ (2.4 m) at high tide.

If you need to haul out, power, sail including a wide Catamaran, come to Marina ZarPar in Boca Chica where getting hauled out is quick, simple and inexpensive. CALL AND MAKE YOUR RESERVATION OR STOP BY THE OFFICE. IN MOST CASES A HAUL CAN BE ARRANGED IN 24 HOURS.
