About Us

polypat caraïbes, the reference  in St. Martin

Our Story

Created in 1994 by Fred & Béatrice WOJCIK, Polypat Caraïbes is the oldest shipyard on the French part of the island of Saint Martin. Polypat Caraïbes is located directly in the sea/lagon access channel next to the Sandy Ground bridge on the lagoon side.

After having lived in Brittany, it is on the other side of the Atlantic that we decided to drop anchor to welcome the yachtsmen who came to sail in this extraordinary little corner of paradise that is the French West Indies to offer them professional services.
