We did not have a good stay here. Moorings are not set up to handle a boat our length - which is 46’ . We swung back on a mooring with a smaller boat and that ball was less than 5’ from our boat. We called - now it is dark and late and a nice man came out. He helped us move to new mooring. As he led us to the new location he lead us right into an unused mooring with three lines floating in The water, unmarked and going every which way. A miracle we missed getting them caught up. We settled in the new mooring and low and behold that unused mooring was 3-5 ‘ off our stern with loose pendants floating that were very hard to see. Suffice it to say a refund would be appreciated. We missed our 5:30am leave window as we were exhausted and had a limited night of sleep.

Quaint location. East exposure so not the best choice for string east winds - but the mooring was great and we weathered the winds. Dinghy dock is close which is great - but very crowded dinghy dock so a bit challenging for the tie up. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

As always the outer harbor is a bit of a ride - but nice to take the dinghy into the dock.

Marina Response:
yes our outer harbor moorings for vessels over 40' LOA can be rough. we are careful to post this on our website and also give a personal warning via message through Dockwa. Thank you for not taking points off about a situation you were aware of like others have in the past. We truly appreciate that! Moving forward, we are actively seeking to have a mooring or 2 inner harbor for larger vessels but with a 20 year wait for moorings in the harbor it is not easy. thanks again hope to see you soon!

Fabulous place to grab a mooring right in the heart of Boston. A little bouncy and lots of ferries and tourist boats but it was all part of the sites and sounds of being in the city. Marina staff is considerate and helpful and the facilities are spotless. We had a great three day stay.
