About


If you're looking to play around the best waters the Cape & Islands have to offer without the Cape traffic, and more importantly, the high cost, South Wharf Yacht Yard & Marina is perfect for you.

One of New England's best kept secrets, South Wharf is a full-service yard and marina in the historic village of Padanaram in South Dartmouth, Massachusetts. Just an hour from Boston and 30 minutes from Cape Cod, Newport and Providence, we offer deep-water slips up to 130 feet. Located across from Cuttyhunk, we're in the middle of New England's prime sailing and cruising grounds with Martha's Vineyard, the Elisabeth Islands and Nantucket all within easy reach.

We have full hauling and launching facilities including a 60-ton travel lift as well as winter storage making South Wharf a go-to location for boaters who care about how their boats are treated. Our factory-trained and certified technicians are experts in the installation and repair of marine electronics, inboard and outboard engines, electrical, heating, plumbing and A/C. We're the authorized servicing dealer of Yamaha, Volvo, Yanmar, Raymarine, Simrad, Garmin, B&G, Cummings and AB Inflatables offering complete outfitting/repair and customization of sail and power vessels.

Great place to hunker down during a storm and very helpful harbormaster. Electrical was steeper then any marina we’ve been at but everything else was an A+. Check out the market/cafe nearby!

Marina Response:
We are glad you were able to hunker down and enjoy your stay here. Thank you for taking a minute to post a 5 Star review. We hope to see you again next season!

Very helpful. The slip I was originally assigned did not work for me for the weather that was expected. They moved other boats to make room for me at a better location.

Marina Response:
We are happy you had a pleasant visit and appreciate your kind words. Hope to see you again next season.

Dock Master Dave and his crew are very helpful. They were at capacity and he opened up a slip for us so we could be safe in the upcoming blow. Immaculate facility, friendly staff and great service. Many thanks.

Prior to arrival, we spoke with the dockmaster about slip preferences and he was very accommodating. When we arrived, dock hands were there to assist us. Everyone was very friendly and marina has showers and a restaurant on the premises. The marina provided with a folder full of information about the facility and the village which was right out their "front door". Had a great lunch at Farm and Coast.

Marina Response:
We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you return for other visits. We look forward to seeing you again.

Our third visit and we will return - great well-protected location with professional staff. Great location in Buzzards Bay for a layover prior to heading to Maine. Facilities for heads, showers and laundry are convenient and first rate. Very professional dock and yard staff - completed oil changes for both main engine and genset on prior visit. Good restaurant on-site and very nice local stores nearby. Excellent stop for a layover.

Marina Response:
Thank you and safe travels! Hope to see you again.

This was our 4th or 5th trip to South Wharf and we have loved it every time. Great help docking and leaving, They even brought us some steps to help get on and off the boat. They have concerts on Friday evenings in the summer that are fantastic. Easy walk to the village for shops and restaurants.

Marina Response:
Glad you were able to enjoy one of our Brews & Tunes concerts. We hope you come back and join us again next season. We appreciate your kind words!

First time to South Wharf and will return next time we are in the area. It was just an overnight stay, marina staff were helpful and facilities were clean. We had an end dock with great views, loved the South Dartmouth village and we ate at the restaurant attached to the marina. Could not have been more convenient.

Marina Response:
So glad you enjoyed yourself. Please be sure to come back and visit again!

This year will be our 3rd boating season at home in the Marina at South Wharf. My wife our family and I love spending our summers on board at South Wharf! The marina offers very easy boating access to most of our favorite destination, the full service staff at South Wharf works very hard at lending a hand into our slip and keeping our boat on the water. The quaint, quiet, humble Village offers outstanding amenities all within walking distance of the marina. From there dock master to the marina owners this is a first class operation. We are proud members of the South Wharf family. Tom and Denna

South Wharf,, great facility and great docks. Right downtown. Close to restaurants and ice cream. Great showers and heads. A bit short of electrical power and old pedestals. Would certainly go back.

Marina Response:
Glad you enjoyed your stay. We've added new power since your last visit. We hope you return for another visit.

Competent dock staff (Ryan) and Dockmaster (Brian). Clean facility with all services except cable TV as needed. Fuel is right next door at the New Bedford YC.
