Nestled between High Town & Low Town, the Madripoor harbor has grown and expanded to be considered 3 distinct areas for boats to dock at. (3 images needed)
Dagger bay is a “Floating village” of small sail boats used by local fishermen. This is the original part of the harbor where the many vessels used by the local fishermen are moored. Many of the locals use the boats as their home, hoping to trade their catches at the Low Town market [Marvel Comics Presents (1st series) #5-7].
As the harbor became more popular for imports, the main harbor port developed. This port is known to be one of the busiest in the region with many cargo ships coming in and out of the port, using the dockland warehouses. The port also includes areas for the ships to dock, while waiting to be unloaded. An old decrepit oil tanker was parked in one of these areas and was used by a joint venture between The hand, under Matsuo Tsurayaba, and Hydra [Wolverine (2nd series) #127-128].

With High Town becoming a domain for the rich, its not surprising that a third, more private area of the harbor would be developed. Buccaneer Bay is for the those visitors to Hightown with luxury yachts and boats to moor with easy access to High Town. Matsuo Tsurayaba & Tony Stark have both used Buccaneer Bay to moor their luxury yachts while visiting Madripoor [Uncanny X-Men (1st series) #268, Iron Man: Director of SHIELD Annual #1].

Weapon XIII Hideout

Although it is not known how Weapon XIII came across this location, When he kidnapped Fantomex, Cluster and Psylocke he took them to this hideout, located somewhere within Buccaneer Bay. The hideout was originally used by pirates many years ago to store their bounty but also had jail cells for any captured prisoners. The Hideout also included an old library. The library was octogan shaped and featured hundreds of books as well as some of the more extravagant booty. Upon Psylocke, Fantomex and Cluster escaping, the Library caught on fire, destroying everything within the hideout.
