About


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.

Berth Capacity


Slips:235
Moorings:130

Approach


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.
Minimum Approach Depth:8.0 Feet

Everything about this Harbor is lovely- the Marina is very nice, the restaurant is good, the staff could not be more attentive and well trained. BUT ..there is a significant problem with birds. If you plan to stay at this marina bring bird deterrents - at least 3 or 4 different ones. do NOT leave your boat unattended over night. We were impacted several times (even with defenses in place) We spent 3-4 hours each time trying to clean it up , every boat around us was impacted - we had friends who passed through who said they would likely not be returning because of this problem - If you have a fool proof bird deterrents system - you will be fine.

Marina Response:
Upper Buzzards Bay has been an extremely fertile fishing ground for seabirds this year. We’re sorry for your encounters but grateful for the abundant wildlife.

Both of the lines on the mooring were rotted out. There were no loops on either end. Our expectation is for an easy snd safe approach to a mooring R11

Marina Response:
Thank you for letting us know about the pennants. The seasonal renter must have had it set up for his boat. We’ll replace them immediately. FOLOWUP: Upon inspection the pennants had clearly been run over and cut near the ends. Thank you for reporting this. They have been replaced.

Late in the season overnight. The marina and facilities are top notch. We arrived around 6pm and due to it being late in the season, no one was available to tell us what number or where our slip was located. We stayed on the dock, had dinner at the Chartroom restaurant and had a very nice stay. Our 4 star rating Probably should be 5, we just there should have been a little better communication.

Marina Response:
We're sorry we missed you, but delighted that you enjoyed your stay. Let us know in advance the next time you'll arrive late and we'll be sure to get you your slip information. Thank you for your review!

I’ve stayed at a mooring at Kingman 3 nights over the last 2 weeks. Peaceful setting with beautiful sunsets. Coming from Gloucester it is convenient as a first stop after going through the canal. We used as jumping off point for cuttyhunk, Vineyard, Newport. We even made it to Montauk from there in rough conditions. Fuel dock is convenient with helpful, energetic staff. Didn’t use the launch but they responded quickly to all calls I heard. Plan to go back often to use as base in that area or as starting point for longer trips. Also attentive to dockwa requests and chats. Hope to be back soon!

A launch came right out to meet us and guide us to our mooring. We were able to get reservations for dinner at the nearby Chart House restaurant and the drinks and dinner were delicious. On our return a few days later we stopped to take on full and the attendants were friendly, professional and quick. They also helped with the pompous. They were great with our lines. All and all we will be sure to return!

KYC is wonderful. Staff guided us in via radio to our mooring, great tender service and everyone in the center was friendly. Will definitely come back next season. Only disappointment was that I didn't get a welcome bag. PS if you want dinner at the Chart room, make your reservation days ahead... worth it!

This marina is the best - change your plans and stay here! They have everything: great location; well-equipped ship’s store (or will get what you need); fun art gallery; wonderful restaurant; and amazing sunsets. More important, they have the most friendly, helpful, and accommodating staff. They only know “yes”. We took an extended sail vacation and stayed with them twice. Our plans changed a bit and they were always helpful when we needed to adjust dates. Stay here!

We stay at Kingman every year and it's always a pleasure. The staff is friendly and always there to help. We always get a great meal at The Chart Room where this year there is plenty of outdoor seating and CDC guidelines are being followed. Nearby Bassett's Island has a nice beach with warm water. It's an all-around great place to visit!

We stayed on a mooring ball for 2 nights - easy to reserve on Dockwa. We planned to stay 5 nights and be there during Hurricane Isaias. On our way there, KYC called us and said we could not say past Sunday morning as they do not allow transients during hurricanes. We were disappointed by that news, but went anyway for 2 nights. The facility is very nice and the services were well-run. Beautiful location. Great area for bike riding and hiking. Did not have time to paddle board, but lots of people were doing that. Did not go to the beach, but it looked fun. We would go back.

Wonderful location, protected, easy in and out. Staff very friendly. Would definitely be a 5 star review except the dinghy dock is seriously overcrowded again this year. Chart Room is no longer pet friendly in the outdoor area.

Marina Response:
Thank you for visiting! The dinghy dock is crowded this season because of irregular early-season launch operations, so we've expanded complimentary launch operations so that visitors don't have to use their dinghies. We hope you'll come back soon and let us know how it's working.

There is a dinghy dock but it's so overcrowded it's impossible to dock. You have to crawl over other dinghies to be able to reach the dock. Sadly they are no longer dog friendly.

Marina Response:
Now that the launch is operating on a regular schedule the dinghy dock should begin to free up a bit, but it is crowded this season. Outdoor dining has also put more restriction on dog-friendly areas. We’re learning to adapt and hope your next visit is more pleasant.

7' draft easy in/out of the channel, 10' min depth at mid tide. The harbor has calm water with wind any direction and locals are respectful of no-wakes, even on the holiday weekend. The harbor/dock staff are competent and pleasant. We bought fuel but did not use shore facilities. The on-site restaurant had good food with beautiful harbor views. Did not give the marina 5 stars because the dinghy dock is seriously overcrowded. It's way too small for the large number of moored boats using it and it's a real hassle getting in and out. It's also pretty unstable to walk on and quite exciting for two people to pass carrying provisions and gear. The only other issue we had was having to move to a different mooring as we did not have enough swing room for 55' boat in N/NE wind. We woke up one morning to find the ball of the boat behind us under our swim deck. The Dockmaster was quick to help out though and moved another boat to accommodate us. Very professional. Overall a pleasant stay in a gorgeous harbor and we would definitely return.

Marina Response:
Thank you very much for your kind words! We;'re pleased that you enjoyed your stay. To be sure, the dinghy dock is crowded this season with the uncertainty about launch operations under the former COVID-19 guidelines. The launch is operating 8AM-9PM daily, and we hope you'll come back and give it a try!

Great facility with lovely staff. But if you draw more than 5’, be very careful to coming in either passage, perhaps only attempt at high tide. We hit hard on a rock in the middle of the north channel approach. Once you arrive at Kingman, there’s lots of water. Restaurant is only open on weekends after Labor Day.

Marina Response:
We're sorry to hear of your encounter with the bottom, and a little surprised as the North Channel controlling depth is around 8'. We're glad that you made it safely and that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your review!

Very quiet setting, beautiful sunsets, and friendly patrons and staff. Good restaurant on site and internet worked well for streaming Netflix. Very dog friendly too.

Came back again for two more nights en route to/from destinations further south. Always fun and a pleasure to be served by such courteous launch and fuel dock crew. We sure kept the launch busy with guests coming and going and with a dog who needed periodic relief! Great marina. Super friendly and helpful staff for both the launch service and at the dock. Great location for relaxing at Chart Room restaurant or anchoring off Bassetts Island. Large, well organized and well-marked mooring field. Very easy to find our spot. N and S Channels in and out not as intimidating as might appear on a chart. Just pay attention to your GPS and the markers. You’ll be rewarded by a great stay.

Scott and his family were spectacular on our ‘extended’ stay at Kingman. Needing to stay a few extra days due to both weather and mechanical issues, the team at Kingman made it effortless and relaxing. Deb and Jim in service were rock stars, not only finding me a part for my boat that would have been otherwise hard to find, Deb negotiated a much lower price saving me hundreds. It’s possible we made up the difference in mudslides. Within two hours of the part being delivered, we were untied and on our way. We hope be back next year, but also hope to see Scott and team at the MBYCA Invasion next summer. Thanks again for your hospitality and professionalism. John and Carol and the WYC Castaways.

Not a fun experience. Had to hail the marina multiple times just to get a slip assignment when pulling into the harbor. An email or call in advance would be much easier. Then I return to the boat to find that it has been moved without my permission because they double booked my slip and gave it away to another customer and left mine on the fuel dock. Only way I found this out was because the guy who my slip was given too told me. A simple phone call or email notifying me that they needed to move it or put it in another slip would have been the bare minimum I would have expected. Instead I go down to where my boat was parked and it was just gone.

Marina Response:
We apologize for the inconvenience you experienced during your arrival. Not that it should make any difference, but all of our slips are privately owned and I believe that the owner of your assigned slip decided to come back a day earlier than he had told us. You arrived back at your boat while we were waiting to move it to a new assignment which was not yet vacant. We would certainly have called to tell you of the new location once you were all tucked in. If you will email me at [email protected] with your contact information and boat name, I will see that we refund your dockage for the evening. I trust that the rest of your stay was enjoyable and hope that we'll have a chance to show you a better time upon a return visit.

Easy end slip. Dock help indicated we should check in and get a tote bag. When we went to the office they didn't offer us anything. Protected marina. Some waves from the launch but they end early. Suggest making reservations for the restaurant since it gets really busy. Bathrooms were clean but a short walk away. Had hoped to visit Bassetts island but the weather didn't cooperate. Will return another time.

Staff was very confused about where we were going to dock. They did however do a nice job of helping us tie up, but then disappeared in a flash without mentioning a word ( i.e. nothing about their facility or layout). Surrounding area is nice, even if the marina is a long way down a winding, narrow and very shallow channel. We would consider staying here again.

Marina Response:
We apologize for any inconvenience you experienced upon arrival. Our difficulty in juggling multiple arrivals and departures should not have caused problems with your stay. We certainly hope that you were given a tote bag with contents that describe our facility and the surrounding areas, and that we'll have a chance to earn a better review on your next visit.

Bathroom facilities were great. Staff was very rude. They were not friendly at all. They all seemed to be unhappy with there jobs.

The staff is great. The bathroom/showers are a put off. The showers lack a dedicated stall which results in water all over the floor. Also the floors are "raw" concrete.

We enjoyed our third visit at Kingman Marine and extended our stay by several days. Deb had the filter I needed for my Onan and the Chart Room is always a good stop. Uber was helpful (no rental company had an available car). Only drawback was some frustration in contacting someone to address my wife's questions, unfortunately she did not recall having been there before with this boat.

Three days on mooring and really enjoyed our first time stay in Red Brook Harbor. Great, free launch service and marvelous restaurant, The Chart Room. Nice hiking trail and walk to local breakfast restaurant. Great time

Friendly, capable staff. It's a busy place, but after winding our way around through a confusing channel, it was a very pleasant stay. If this is your first time in, I'd recommend entering near high tide.

Marina Response:
Thank you for sharing your experience at Kingman Yacht Center. Both entry channels have a controlling depth of at least 6' at MLW and tide range is about 4'. We're very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon!

Very pleasant stay. Staff is very pleasant and helpful. Free launch service. Free pump-out at Fuel Dock. Excellent dock-side restaurant. Bourne Pump-out (not related to Kingman Marina) is supposed to be available for boat side pump out...but was unresponsive for the 2 days we were there. They never answered out calls on VHF 9. Fortunately, the free fuel dock pump out was available. Would not hesitate to return.
