Our boat, La Vie Dansante, is a Fountaine Pajot Helia - a 44' sailing catamaran.
We chose Port Annapolis for a pre-voyage haulout based on recommendations and family events I had in Maryland during the month of October. It was a great choice.
Richard’s team was competent and professional, taking care of a wide range of maintenance requirements including fiberglass repair, metal brace fabrication, engine maintenance, saildrive repair, rudder bearing installation, standing rigging repair, bottom painting and hull polishing. The techs and mechs who worked on La Vie Dansante were courteous, timely and capable. It was also nice that the yard didn't restrict our access and work on our boat, so we got quite a few projects complete.
Pricing was fair, and the cost for a number of tasks was absorbed by the yard for training of junior personnel who were always well supervised.
We wound up being on the hard for longer than expected (3 weeks) based on some newly discovered issues that needed to be resolved, but when we needed parts, they arrived faster than estimated and the team got on the job right away. Also, the yard was accommodating and offered top notch facilities for our use while staying there. Staying aboard while on the hard is never a luxurious experience, but we enjoyed our time in the yard this time around.
At the completion of repairs, the mechanic who worked on my engines and saildrives went on a “River Run” with us to put the gear through its paces.
We left Port Annapolis with confidence in the diverse work that was completed on our complex boat, and ready to continue our adventure south. I will haul out here again if the time comes and I’m back in the Bay.

Scott, Alexis and the rest of the staff were extremely helpful and accommodating. We did a short haul here and the travel lift operators were knowledgeable and easy to work with. The grounds and facilities were clean and well appointed. We enjoyed our stay!

Nice marina. We got there just after Labor Day and access to all the amenities were limited. But during the season I could tell it would be great.

Good dockhands. Passageway to slips is tight, limited turning area. Bathrooms and showers are excellent. Wifi at slip. Pool a little small and crowded. Location is opposite side of Back Creek and requires Uber or water taxi to reach downtown Annapolis.

Port Annapolis Marina is clearly a class operation!
Dock master Blake Owen and ADM Scott are fabulous!
We are frequent visitors and love the "family feel " at PAM.
The pool is extremely clean and The Wet Dog Cafe on site offers delicious meals, chilled wine and really cold beer!
Check out Noah's specials at the cafe!
