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.

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
Mean Low Water Dock Depth:10.0 Feet

Stay for one night was excellent. Was a great stop to make while making our way to Cuddyhunk the next day. The Chart Room for dinner was excellent we had 10 for dinner and the service was excellent! Would definitely stay at Kingman again and hope to get back that way next year!!

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

Marina Response:
We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at Kingman Yacht Center - and quite surprised because our staff is praised in most all other reviews. We take customer care very seriously, and hope that you'll give us a chance to improve your experience here.

The place is great- the only reason it's missing the fifth star is the docks are too crowded with moored boats for a large boat (46'x25' Cat) to maneuver without anxiety. For example, the fuel dock is accessible only from the north as the south side was blocked by 3 moored boats preventing a simple drive through. Add a strong westerly wind, limited wiggle-room, and you're in for a nail-biter. Fortunately, there is a fine bar on-site where you get to choose the right meds for the moment. This is a well-run, first-class operation; they even send a greeting email the day before to confirm your reservation which includes a complete sitemap of the mooring field and slip layout so you know exactly where to go when they provide your assignment.

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.

Great place in it self! No stores or restaurants in walking distance. One restaurant in marina, no breakfast and a little pricey. Food is very good!

Marina Response:
Thank you for sharing your experience at Kingman Yacht Center. Wanted you to know that we now serve coffee and other light breakfast fare to help get you started in the morning. We're very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon!

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.

We're glad that you enjoyed your visit and hope to welcome you back soon!

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.
