  • A Wonderful Visit from Start to Finish!

    Just wanted to send a quick note to thank you for a nice weekend! It was our first time at your marina and my wife and I had a wonderful visit from start to finish! Great people who are always willing to help in a friendly way. Thanks again and see ya soon!

  • The perfect stop on the way north or south…

    Vacation report…we came down the CC Canal and took the north channel around the Bassetts Island with absolutely no problem at all (except all those sailing school people who thought we could dodge the Optimist Prams with our Sabreline 36 in a severe fog…good thing we sailed for 30 years before switching over to the “dark side” and could predict their random actions). We were on the Kingman’s face dock for a couple of days last week and had a great time at the Chart Room and also we walked into town to the Pocasset Corner Cafe, plus the hardware store and all the other high points in town.
    The cruising guides describe Kingman’s as a place to do nothing at all, and that is right on! We were so lazy we didn’t even launch the dink and motor over to the island for a day at the beach!!!

  • Many thanks for a very pleasant experience!

    “All of your staff were friendly, courteous and professional. We had what we thought was a minor repair and it turned out to be much more. Your managers did a wonderful job of getting us the help we needed. They were all so efficient and professional! The dock crew and the servers in the restaurant were also exceptional. Your staff are truly your greatest asset. Of course we also enjoyed the overall marina. Many thanks for a very pleasant experience.

  • A Difficult Diagnosis and Repair Ends Well…

    I wanted to say thanks for doing the July repair work under warranty. You guys seem to be rather good at getting in front of a problem and addressing it, which I can tell you is immensely preferable to having to worry about whether I should be arguing for stuff. I got an earful from a buddy of mine (also with a Surfhunter) about the problems he had with (another local yard), and he was quite amazed that even with the problems I had with RADAR this summer, that I still recommended he bring you his boat. Hopefully our luck will be better in the future, but I’ve been impressed with how you guys try to stay on top of stuff and do the right thing for your customer (even the little stuff like making sure we had a ride home when the boat was towed in). Thank you.
