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.

  • Thank You!

    Our heartfelt appreciation for the timely repair of our boat. I’m not certain what I hit, however you were able to repair the vessel in record time and you should be commended. We have clients scheduled to go out Friday and Monday and not having the boat available for those two days would have been disappointing, particularly in the middle of the season. Thank you very much!
