KYC offers gas and diesel; engine repairs, maintenance and repowering; complete repair and maintenance services; haul out up to 60 tons; electronics sales and service; mobile marine services and over-the-road boat hauling.

Seasonal Guests

Been to Kingman before? We’ve got a page just for you, with all of the most important information our frequent guests need at hand, including our calendar of events, dockage & storage forms, and hurricane plans.


If you are staying at Kingman for your first time or just visit us a little less frequently, welcome (or welcome back)! We’ve put together some resources that are handy for our visitors who aren’t as familiar with all we have to offer.

Since 1932... Brand New Every Day!

All of this is sited on beautifully maintained grounds with immaculate facilities, amidst an ever-changing array of events and activities. We’re locally, family-owned and operated, and take real pride in making you feel as welcome here as you would be in our homes.

The 12th Annual In-Shore Fishing Tournament @ Kingman Dock House
Jun 2 @ 8:00 am – 3:00 pm

The 12th Annual “Get Out On Your Boat and Fish for Fun, Prizes and Bragging Rights” Tournament – right in the heart of the best black sea bass fishery in the world! This year, we’re teaming up with Habitat for Humanity to help build affordable housing on Cape Cod.

Register your boat at the Kingman Dockhouse before setting out to fish. Registration fee is $50 per boat to enter the tournament., and an optional $50 per boat to register for Habitat’s  “Hook for Homes Derby.” Participants may register in advance at (508) 563-7136 X101 so they don’t have to set out from Kingman Yacht Center on 6/2. Derby packages will be available to all boats at the weigh in so they can keep the fun going for the rest of the month.

$10 from every boat registered in the tournament will be donated to Habitat Cape Cod. The remaining $40 per boat will be presented as prizes to winners in each of 2 categories: the largest striped bass and the largest string of 3 black sea bass. Prize purse will be based upon number of boats participating in the tournament.

There are no boundaries for the fishing area but all boats MUST be in the weigh-in area at the Fuel Dock at Kingman Yacht Center by 3:00PM sharp. Contestants will be urged to keep only those tournament fish that they will weigh in and take home. The continuing Derby is catch and release.

Good luck and good fishing!
