We used Port Yasmine for winterising in 2018/19. It was quite reasonably priced with 7 month contract TND6,100 plus water and electricity on counters (paid TND150) for our 44' cat. Arrived early November and the place was pretty quiet. There is a live-aboard community which is mainly French speakers. We were initially put on the end of a T but were not happy with the daily "Bateaux Pirates" passing so close by, particularly as we planned to leave the boat to go back to Australia. We asked to move and we were placed on med mooring on one of the arms which was much better and more protected. The complex was very quiet when we arrived, with many restaurants closed for winter. The villas around the marina look like they have never been occupied and the place is run down. There are bathrooms in one of these villas, good supply of hot water and good pressure, clean but nothing fancy and its BYO paper. Electric gates were not working when we arrived, taken out in a storm, but were fixed by the time we got back. The place was alot cleaner and livelier when we returned in March as the new season was underway. We noted a large Francophone liveaboard community who stayed over winter, Anglophones tend to be down in Monastir.
Highly recommended are the services of Mike Turner (http://www.mtmarineservices.com/home/about-us) for any in-water work you need. Mike is an excellent engineer, great problem solver and all round nice guy who helped orient us to Hammamet and also took care of our baby while we were away.
Arrival and departure procedures do require some patience, paperwork and a cheap bottle of whiskey (or some "spare" Euros) won't go astray either... Overall I would say Hammamet is good value, half the price of the cheapest EU marinas.
