Discover Kingman Yacht Center, Cape Cod’s Largest Full-Service Marina

One of the highest rated marinas in North America


Nestled in scenic, sheltered Red Brook Harbor on the eastern shore of Buzzards Bay, we offer slips and moorings for seasonal and transient guests in a resort community atmosphere. This is a special place to spend the night – or the summer!

Kingman Yacht Center manages our online reservations through the Dockwa system. Dockwa allows boaters to search, reserve, and pay for dockage at Kingman Yacht Center, as well as at more than 150 other locations around the country, all through their mobile devices!

A Destination All Its Own

Enjoy swimming at a mile-long white sand beach. You’ll find provisions and discover unique clothing, artwork and gifts in our shops and chandlery. Savor sunset over drinks and the daily catch at the Chart Room Restaurant.

A Full Service Marina & Boatyard

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.

I've stay there on my own boat in the past so I didn't hesitate to stop when I go by on a delivery. Great dock help and service techs.

Sock Burning – End of Winter Celebration @ KYC Clubhouse

Sock Burning - End of Winter Celebration @ KYC Clubhouse | Cataumet | MA | United States

Them Red Brook boys got an odd tradition
When the sun starts gettin’ to a summer-like position,
They build a little fire down along the docks,
They doff their shoes and they burn their winter socks.

Yes, they burn their socks at the marina docks;
You might think that’s peculiar, but I think it’s not,
See, they’re the same socks they put on last fall,
And they never took ’em off to wash ’em, not at all . . .

So they burn their socks at the marina docks
In a little ol’ fire burning nice and hot.
Some think incineration is the only solution,
‘Cause washin’ ’em contributes to Red Brook’s pollution.

Through the spring and the summer and into the fall,
They go around not wearin’ any socks at all,
Just stinky bare feet stuck in old deck shoes,
Whether out on the water or sippin’ on a brew.

So if you sail into the Harbor on the 14th of May,
And it smells like Limburger sautéed with old hay,
You’ll know you’re downwind of the Kingman docks
Where they’re celebrating summer by burning their socks.
