  • Top Notch Facility…

    It’s a really nice full service marina. Showers, restaurant, basic shops, laundry, etc. are all provided. Be careful at low tide. We noticed a few shallow spots but did not have any trouble with our 5.5′ draft sailboat.

  • 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!

  • Kingman Mobile Marine Delivers!

    I wanted to share my experience with your boat hauling service, and tell you that John, the driver did a great job of ensuring Panacea was completely secure and safe as she made the trip from the Mass Maritime storage on Otis to my home in Plymouth.

    As you can see the hill to get Panacea into my yard was not ideal, a bit of a grade and not too wide but John did a great job. When it comes time to put her in the water I will be giving you a call to make the return trip.

  • Should Be My Home Marina…

    Provides everything I expected and more. Never saw this before, but they offer to provide anything from West Marine catologue to your boat the next morning at West Marine cost or less (no delivery charges). Keep that in mind if you are headed this way and need something.

    Arrived early in the day and stopped at fuel dock and got fuel, water, pump out, and checked in very efficiently. Then anchored out at Bassett Island for lunch, fishing, swimming, beach walking, and dinner before heading back to the mooring. Anchoring at beach for the night is just as good, but without the outstanding shore services of this marina. Didn’t need the launch service but used the large dinghy dock once and fuel dock (twice) for transfering provisions and crew. Restaurant looks great. They also have a great bar on the lawn overlooking the harbor.
