 Yasmine Hammamet - Profile

Location

This port is located in the SE of the Northern peninsula of Cap Bon, on the northern edge of the Gulf of Hammamet. It is particularly known for its jasmine, which is how the resort (the first tourist resort in Tunisia) got its name.

This is a good place to stop if heading westwards and fighting N/NW winds. There is a very good boatyard here.

Position 36° 22'09"N, 10° 32'46"E (marina entrance)

Clearance

Customs and Immigration office are in the control tower on the port side of the marina entrance.

Although it has been previously reported that "no gifts" are requested by officials here, a 'gift' might avoid an  extremely thorough search of the boat.

Last updated July 2016.

Docking

Arriving yachts should come alongside the reception dock (max. draft 6m) on the portside of the entrance past the fuel dock (by control tower). The office is open 24 hours.

Winterization in Port Yasmine Hammamet, WARNING:
We left our catamaran Libellule in Hammamet from Aug-15 to May-16 and experienced the following difficulties:
1. When arriving we had a medical urgency and my wife needed to go urgently to the hospital. However, Immigration took our passports away and wanted money. The whole thing took about 90 minutes to resolve, the officers told us literally they didnt care if my wife died or not.
2. I sent a propeller from France to Hammamet, the parcel took 2 days to Hammamet and then 5 months, about 30 emails, and about EUR 1,000 of bribes to get it through customs.
3. We took the boat out of the water and left it in the shipyard Rodriguez. The antifouling they applied was of so poor quality that it lasted about 4 weeks before it partially started coming off and we had a real jungle under the boat; they did not even bother to put groundpaint below the antifouling, nor did they sand the underboat before applying the antifouling.
4. The repairs we had asked them to execute were not done; no spare parts available locally, and poor/unreliable workmanship.
5. On the way out of Tunisia customs wanted money again, but this time we got away with paying nothing.
So if you consider winterizing your boat there, make sure you do it in a smarter way than us (bring your own spare parts, no antifouoling job, no taking it out of the water, bring more time to fight bribes, no medical emergencies.
Sorry, Tunisia used to be a really nice country, and I had really good experiences there in the past, but this time it was just really really bad. People were friendly, though.
