About


Manchester-by-the-Sea is one of Massachusetts’s hidden treasures. The town’s new transient docks offer visiting boaters direct access to the center of this quaint New England town. Right from the docks you can walk to a variety of restaurants, shops, parks and beaches.

Enjoy a meal at one of the many restaurants Manchester has to offer, or if you’re looking for a relaxing day on the beach, Singing Beach, is walking distance from the docks. The walk is shaded and you can pick up an ice cream cone or a cup of coffee on the way.

Manchester-by-the-Sea is a beautiful harbor and we look forward to sharing its beauty and character with you.

The Harbormaster representative treats visitors with kindness, intelligence, and a cheerful disposition. Although the new facilities are also awesome, my ratings reflects mostly his contribution to the overall experience.

Great stay. Town dock is brand new. No water or power, yet; but the location to town and the friendliness of the dock workers more than made up for it. It does get shallow at low tide so if you draw more than four feet, be careful. One of the nicest harbors of our five week trip!

We had a fantastic stay on the brand new docks right in the heart of town. The Harbormaster and his staff who manage the docks could not have been more helpful and friendly, ensuring we had the best stay possible. We have already booked a weekend in July and another in August!
