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!

Reserve a slip or mooring online

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. Our dealership, Buzzards Bay Yacht Sales, features new boats by Yellowfin and an active yacht brokerage.

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.

"Back In The Day..." The boat chase sequence from the 1970's movie, "Puppet On a Chain" was the #Bullitt of all boat chases before the "Live & Let Die" boating sequence from the James Bond film.

I remember as a child going with my Father to watch the filming of the Live & Let Die movie in Louisiana. It was a time that has remained a fond memory and still yet I have never jumped a car with a boat.

Guess I need to get moving with the Bucket List!

KYC Cruise to Provincetown @ Provincetown, MA | Provincetown | Massachusetts | United States

Join the Kingman Yacht Club Cruise to P-Town over the July 21st – 22nd weekend.  We have selected the recently refurbished and expanded Provincetown Marina as a NEW cruise destination this summer.  The Marina is located on Fisherman’s Wharf in the heart of downtown with all new heads, showers, laundry facilities as well as an “Outside Captain’s Lounge” with a flat screen TV & fire pit.  With Kingman’s participation in the Stay Local Boat MA program, all Kingman boaters that travel to P-Town will receive a discount on their dockage / mooring fees of between 10% and 20%, depending on how many boats signup for this trip.  KYC activities over the weekend are still being finalized, but may include a Whale Watch out over Stellwagen Bank, a BYOB Cocktail Reception in the Captain’s Lounge and a dinghy trip to the exclusive beach at the Long Point Lighthouse.

Please contact Jerry Murphy ( for any questions and/or to sign up.  Each boater must make their own direct reservation by going onto and booking their slip or mooring.  Be sure to reference Kingman Yacht Center as your “Homeport” and check off the box that indicates that you’re part of the Stay Local Boat MA program as well as indicating in the “Additional Comments” section that you’ll be visiting them as part of a Kingman Yacht Club cruise.

KYC Cruise to Vineyard Haven @ Vineyard Haven, Martha's Vineyard
Aug 4 @ 10:00 am – Aug 6 @ 4:00 pm
KYC Cruise to Vineyard Haven @ Vineyard Haven, Martha's Vineyard | Massachusetts | United States

We are heading to a new “port of call” this summer as part of our 2017 Cruising Schedule, travelling to the picturesque harbor of Vineyard Haven over the August 4th-6th weekend. We were able to secure advance reservations for both dockage (at the Black Dog Wharf) and moorings (inside the breakwater) for both Friday and Saturday nights that weekend. For those of you that have travelled to Vineyard Haven in the past, you know how difficult it is to secure an “inside” mooring, but Jerry has worked his magic and reserved the desirable inside moorings for the first ten (10) boats to sign up. In addition, we’ve reserved space aboard the Shenandoah or Alabama for a Sunset Sail on Saturday night (August 5th).

Please contact Jerry Murphy as soon as you can with any questions and to sign up. He is going to need to give both the Harbormaster and the Black Dog fairly accurate numbers for moorings, dockage and sunset sail participants as soon as possible.

Boat-In Movie! @ Kingman Docks & Mooring Field
Aug 5 @ 9:00 pm
Boat-In Movie! @ Kingman Docks & Mooring Field | Bourne | Massachusetts | United States

An old-fashioned drive-in movie – just the way you remember them. Only wetter.

The movie will be projected onto the wall of the big shed facing the front face docks, and the soundtrack will be broadcast on 90.3 FM. Watch it from your boat, or pull up a chair on the “lawn” next to the travel lift.

It’s more FREE fun from Kingman Yacht Center!
