Previously known as a Brewer Yacht Yard facility, Cowesett Marina is now proudly owned and operated by Safe Harbor Marinas after the two companies merged in 2017. Cowesett Marina is located on Narragansett Bay, in the heart of New England yachting. With 765 seasonal slips sheltered by a continuous breakwater, Cowesett is an ideal stepping-off place for any adventure.
Cowesett Marina offers the most modern amenities available to its customers. In addition to laundry, showers, swimming pools, onsite restaurant and ship's store, Cowesett is located near downtown East Greenwich, where groceries and supplies are easily obtained and many renowned restaurants are readily found.
Whether it is reaching through the protected waters of Greenwich Bay or deep-sea fishing off Montauk, Cowesett Marina is in the heart of boaters paradise. On shore, you can enjoy the nearby Roger Williams Park Zoo, the public golf course at the East Greenwich Golf and Country Club and the many boutiques and antique shops of East Greenwich Village.
Very friendly staff, nice and clean facilities. Big marina, but did not feel like too many transients, although we were ther mid week.
The team was great they met us at the entrance in a dingy and guided us to our slip. great facilities especially having a Chelo's on the on waterfront with live music.
Great staff and wide fairways made docking easy. Close to great restaurants. We will return.
Modern, secure, well maintained... Concrete floating docks, good tie system, good water depth, fresh water spigots at each dock space. Clean bathrooms, nice bar and restaurant.
Very friendly staff and great facilities. We hailed the dockmaster on channel 9 and George came out in the launch and led us into our dock (this is a very large marina-- over 700 slips.) Then he and another staff helped us tie up and plug in. When we checked in at the office they gave us a welcome package with all necessary info (gate codes, wifi password, etc.) They have two pools, one at each end ("North" and "South") of the marina. There is a restaurant on site-- Chelo's-- which gets very lively (i.e. loud) at night. There is also a good pub (The Shanty) about 1/4 mile up the road (and I mean up up up a steep hill.) The town of East Greenwich has a lot of shops, cafes, restaurants-- very cute and retro!-- but is not really walking distance from the marina (about 2 miles.) You can also take your dingy to the waterfront restaurants. Very lively, friendly marina!
Overall the marina is fantastic. We would return again. very accommodating over the phone and helpful over the radio on the approach. Once the slip assignment is made over the radio you are on your own. No staff awaiting your arrival at the dock to help or inform you of the amenities or anything else. Went to find trash location and young girl sitting in a booth (not sure where office was) and she told us OH, you came in, here is your welcome bag with some books. If you don't need anyone or anything, this is the place. If you are looking for a professional "Brewer's" service, this is not the place. Again, we loved it there and would return just no staff on the docks.
Great service, excellent accommodations and an easy in and out of marina.
