Welcome to YSATT

Welcome to Trinidad and Tobago

 

The Yacht Services Association of Trinidad and Tobago (YSATT) welcomes all cruisers to our twin island republic.  YSATT is the marine trades association for the yacht services industry in Trinidad and Tobago.

YSATT was formed 14 years ago when the founders of the yacht services industry in Chaguaramas, recognised the need for the creation of a body that would become the lobbying voice for the industry.  Over the years, YSATT has grown to over 90 members, representing a range of marine professionals in the country.  We are the voice to the Government of Trinidad and Tobago as well as to the cruising community.  We address issues such as security, policies and procedures (Immigration, Customs, Etc.)

YSATT has been working with its members, the private sector professionals within the industry as well as with Government to make the visitor experience the best that it can be.  We act as the tourism centre for the Chaguaramas area and are your one stop shop for industry, tourism and general information.

Trinidad has been blessed with a natural advantage of being below the critical hurricane belt and we have room for the storage of over 1,000 yachts on land.  We are known throughout the Caribbean for our creativity and skills and thus, our skilled personnel in this area are second to none.  Trinidad has evolved into the premier storage and repair centre for yachts and a quiet, laid back environment.  It is the perfect weekend getaway.

Besides the advantages specific to yachts, Trinidad and Tobago is home to a myriad of Festivals and events throughout the year.  We are the birthplace of the steel pan and home to the biggest and best Carnival in the Caribbean.  We offer excellent eco adventures for nature lovers.  One can go hiking, turtle watching and/or visit the marshlands to see our magnificent scarlet ibis.

Our food is a fusion of the very cultures that have made our nation the melting pot of the Caribbean and exploring the local culinary fare can be a most pleasant adventure in itself.

Whether you are here to get repairs done on your yacht, to wait out the hurricane season or simply to have a fantastic holiday, we welcome you and encourage you to stop by our office upon your arrival into Chaguaramas.
