Set on the west side of English Harbour, Nelson's Dockyard is a popular tourist attraction and one of the Caribbean's best-known yacht harbours. Construction of this base for the Royal Navy began in 1743 and further additions were put in by Admiral Nelson in 1748. The dockyard was abandoned in the late 19th century, but restoration began in the 1950s when the Nicholson family opened it up as a charter base. A favourite cruising destination, Nelson's Dockyard also hosts major annual events: Yacht Charter Show in December, Antigua Classic Yacht Week in mid-April and Antigua Race Week in the last week of April.

Welcome to Superports!

With data on more than 600 Superyacht marinas, the Dockwalk team is pleased to present its online Superports directory.

Previously only available in print, the Superports directory contains information including contact details, facilities at the berth and local services. It also provides vital logistical information such as lat/long co-ordinates, berth numbers and sizes, prices and distances to local airports.

What's more, the whole thing works with Google mapping. Select a region or enter a location, rollover an anchor and see the name, location and photo of the marina. Click on it to load all the info on your chosen marina.

When you've chosen a marina, you'll notice a list of local services classifications in the right hand column. Right now it's fairly empty. That's where you come in.

We're building the site around our users, and we want to publish the things that are most useful to you. As you travel around the world, you can recommend the best bars, friendliest agents, most efficient electricians and the quickest taxis - to name but a few. And as the directory builds up, you can look up services that have been recommended by other Captains and Crew.

So if you've had a great night out, found the best surf shop or been impressed with an emergency repair, click on the Recommend A Local Service link and share it with crew around the world.
