Homer Smith’s is the go-to Carteret County marina for guests and locals, alike. Located on Beaufort’s Towne Creek, we feature 30 slips, accommodating vessels up to 100 feet. More slips are to come, as we continually grow our facilities.
Our state-of-the-art marina caters to recreational boaters, sailors, fishing trollers, area residents and seasonal visitors. Our boat slip rental leasing options allow for brief visitors and those looking for a long-term stay. We’re proud to be serving everyone looking to be in Beaufort, Morehead City, Atlantic Beach, or just anywhere on Crystal Coast.
The docks that make up Homer Smith are constructued of a BMT ML-32 floating dock system built by Bellingham Marine, the largest dock manufacturer in the U.S. Our decking is made of Brazilian hardwood, also known as IPE. The main walkways are 10 foot wide, making them more stable than others in our area. Our docks are secured by 12-inch concrete piles and the finger piers will be 32-foot long with bumper piles at each end. The harbor lights are made with marina electrical equipment and supply all power needs for up to 100-foot motor yachts.
We stayed here because of good reviews and we'd never stayed here before, in our favorite town along the ICW. The floating docks were great, Clark the dockmaster was super-helpful, the laundry (free) and head/shower (only 1) were nice and clean. The reasons I gave 4 stars and not 5 were that the Wifi was intermittent at best, and we were docked next to a couple of working shrimp boats, and their crews were busy most of the night evidently getting ready for a trip. All in all, a nice marina in a great town.
Best floating docks in NC. Staff was very nice and opened the gas pumps up early so I could get on my way.
We enjoyed the excellent docks and electrical power, terrific bath/shower, and the use of the courtesy vehicle for provisioning. Owner, Tony, was a very hospitable host.
Free (nice) loaner car, beautiful floating docks, good rates, good electric, free pumpout and very helpful and friendly folks. Really enjoyed our stay. Keep in mind that you will be sharing docks with working fishing boats. We didn't use onshore facilities (bathhouse, or free laundry).
