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 Everglades, Steiger Craft, Invincible and Yellowfin, and an active power 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.
