  • Great Stopover!

    Stopped here for a night on our way to Martha’s Vineyard from Duxbury. Channel coming in looks intimidating but is really very negotiable. Staff was very helpful and the free launch service was great to go ashore for dinner. The Chart Room is hopping place. In the launch we met another sailor who gave me some good intel about the passage through Woods Hole. Helped a bunch and we had a smooth passage.

  • We’ve Always Enjoyed Our Stay….

    We have been here several times and always enjoyed our stay. Well protected, well run and plenty of conveniences. The Chart Room for dinner or drinks, the beach for swimming or hiking, the marina has a store and showers. Fuel and water and free launch service.

    KINGMAN YACHT CENTER. Cape Cod’s largest full-service marina, this is the boaters’ destination on the eastern shore of Buzzards Bay. Located in scenic, sheltered Red Brook Harbor, it offers slips and moorings for seasonal and transient guests. Meander on up to the Chart Room for a classic seafood dinner or just grab an Adirondack chair outside on the crushed oyster shells with all the other Nantucket Red-wearin’ folk under the waning sun and enjoy a beverage.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our experience!

    Last weekend, we had the absolute pleasure of participating in the KYC organized cruise to Cuttyhunk. It was our first cruising experience with the group, and we can’t say enough good things about our experience. From sign up to our return, Jerry Murphy was wonderful! He corresponded with us, provided timely information, called us during the trip to to Cuttyhunk to check in, met us at our slip upon our arrival (in the pouring rain) to guide and assist us with docking and lines, let the group know that we were new participants and encouraged them to come by our boat to introduce themselves, and made sure to invite us to participate in all activities of the weekend beyond the organized lobster and clam bake.

    The others in the group could not have been more pleasant, thoughtful, kind, or fun … from a beach outing, to cocktail and hors d’oeuvre parties on the dock, to Bernie’s famous mudslides, to managing our lines as we left our slip on Sunday! We want to thank you for making it possible and also let you know what an amazing job Jerry is doing as cruising commodore!  We thoroughly enjoyed our experience!  Thank you!
