Kingman Yacht Center is Cape Cod's largest full-service marina. Nestled in scenic, sheltered Red Brook Harbor on the eastern shore of Buzzards Bay, we offer slips and moorings for seasonal and transient guests in a resort community atmosphere. This is a special place to spend the night - or the summer!

KYC offers gas and diesel; marine engine repairs, maintenance and repowering; complete repair and maintenance services; haul out up to 60 tons; marine electronics sales and service; mobile marine services and over-the-road boat hauling. Our dealership, Buzzards Bay Yacht Sales, features new boats by Yellowfin and Ocean Yachts, and an active yacht brokerage.


Use NOAA charts 13236 (1:20,000), 13229SC (1:40,000) and 13230 (1:40,000). Use tide tables for Newport. High tide is approximately 24 minutes later. Low tide is 18 minutes later. Multiply by 1.1 for height at high or low water. Mean tidal range is 4'. From the North via the Hog Island Channel and the Cape Cod Canal: Give Wings Neck at least 500 yards of clearance as you round it. You may want to clear Q G G "1" at the southeastern end of Hog Island Channel before heading southeast into the harbor. From the South and West: Straightforward approach except for Southwest Ledge and Seal Rocks which extend to R N "10", about 0.9 nm west of Scraggy Neck. To clear these rocks, continue northeast in the Cleveland Ledge Channel until you are more than 1.0 nm north of Fl R 4s R "4". This gives you clearance of Southwest Ledge as you turn east into the harbor. Entering the outer harbor heading towards Bassetts Island, give RG N "ER" plenty of room. This junction buoy identifies Eustis Rock, with a 5-foot spot just east of the marker. At R G N "ER" you have a choice of two entrance channels, north and south of Bassetts Island. The north channel has an 8-ft (mlw) controlling depth and winds its way through Pocasset Harbor. Stay close to all the buoys and don’t cut corners. The south channel (controlling depth: 6-ft mlw) leads directly into Red Brook Harbor, and while it is a bit more shallow, it is also less convoluted and confusing. Kingman Yacht Center sits inside (east) of Bassetts Island, with its mooring field to port (north) of the channel running into the harbor. The marina monitors VHF channel 71.

My family and 2 other boats spent 3 days here last summer. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Great location and facilities, we loved Bassett's island. We will return to KYC again soon.
