Albury Brothers is a famous custom yacht outfit and repair facility. Have them build you a new one, or fix up your old yacht.

The north entrance to Man-O-War Cay Harbour is shallow, but boats with drafts of less than 3 feet can navigate the entrance in most conditions. As visible in the image above, the deepest part of the channel lies to starboard (west) on entry, and a stake farther on marks a small reef extending down from the small island to port. Once you have negotiated your way inside, depths increase slightly to 3 to 4 feet, and there is anchorage available on the east shore of the harbor.
