About Marina Carenero
History of Marina Carenero
Marina Carenero was established in 1997 and
opened officially for business January 1st, 1998. The original dock was
built out of low-cost native materials and was up-graded to marine
treated pine poles and decking in 2003-2004.
The marina is located in the cove on Careening Cay (Isla Carenero), a
secure 200 meters distance from the town of Bocas. The site is cooled by
abundant sea breezes and protected virtually 360 degrees by the
surrounding islands. Power, water and phones come from the town of Bocas
under the 100 meter wide channel between the islands.
The original concept was to provide a friendly, secure, service oriented
center for cruising sailors, based on the cruising experiences of the
owner. The scope of services offered are really too numerous to
mention, as they include the fulfillment of many personal, and sometimes
peculiar requests from absentee boat owners. Essentially, we are here to
help the cruising sailor.
The owner, Mary Robertson, has lived in Bocas since 1997. She
cruised the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean before moving to Panama. She
has raised 2 sons in Bocas, home-schooling them for college in the US.
