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!

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.
