Bobby’s Marina named HOME of annual SXM Wahoo Tournament

Philipsburg, St. Maarten,

With 15 days to go until the 10th annual SXM Wahoo Tournament, the St. Maarten Sport Fishing Foundation (SSFF) wants to recognize their longest standing sponsor & unwavering supporter since its inception in 2008. 

For over 10 years, Bobby’s Marina has been the host to the venue, continuing to build on its strong relationship- therefore the decision to name Bobby’s Marina as the official home of the SXM Wahoo tournament was one of the easiest decisions the SSFF has made to date.
Founded in 1968, Bobby Velasquez started with a very small boatyard with no heavy equipment and over next 50 plus years built a full-service marina from the ground up, as the pioneer in St. Maarten marine services and evolving into Bobby’s Marina Group of Companies—The gateway to Philipsburg!

Ideally located in the heart of Philipsburg, Bobby’s Marina offers a full service boat yard, fuel stations for both vehicles and sea going vessels, short term and long term dockage (on lifts and wet slips), a Caribbean-wide renowned supply store, the Island Water World, great dining at both the Green House and Lizzy’s, a base to several day excursions such as diving, sailing, beach-hopping and fishing excursions, and a marina market to restock for your next trip. There are also toilets and showers available on premises and a secured parking lot for your convenience.

The Great Bay Express, part of the Bobby’s Marina Group of Companies, is also based here. The fleet of high-speed ferries connects you from one paradise to another. They offer high speed ferry services between the islands of St Maarten – St Barthelemy (St Barth) – Saba – St Eustatius.

Great Bay Express has the best competitive prices in the region and staff and crew are there to ensure that your experience is as pleasant and easy as possible. Their ticket office is located at the main entrance of the marina, for more information visit
