New to Kingman? Start Here.

Strategically placed in the northeast corner of Buzzards Bay, Kingman Yacht Center is a gem in the realm of full service marinas. For seasonal and transient boaters alike, Kingman’s offerings are unsurpassed in an area that is known for well-established boating facilities.  From their modern, professionally manned service department to their beautiful competently staffed marina, there is no better place to spend the season or stop for a day than Kingman.

Here we’ve assembled a starter page for our transient and non-seasonal guests. You’ll find maps of the marina’s amenities and mooring field, the location of our facilities, and mooring reservation forms.

  • Regular Stop on Our Way to the Islands

    We always stop here after transitting the canal from Boston (6 knot sailboat). Very friendly staff, easy to navigate fuel dock, plenty of moorings with free launch until 10:00PM. The Chart Room is a nice place great fresh seafood (nothing fried). No problem carrying 4′ draft through the south channel at low tide.
