We absolutely love sailing into Boston and we were so happy to discover Charlestown Marina last year. It has become a place we shall sail to every summer from The Hamptons. The staff is so friendly and accommodating. Michelle in administration always spent gracious time being so helpful! Abby tried to help with a laundry debacle. The facilities are okay—the laundries now use an app, and the app malfunctioned for me, and that was annoyingly time -consuming. But we don’t stay at Charlestown for the facilities. We stay for the deep, protected and secured harbor. The nice docks, and the welcoming and very proficient staff. We also have come to love the Charlestown neighborhood. Biking all around. The ever-developing waterfront here is vibrant and invigorating. We love the new docks installed on Pier 6, and enjoy eating in the restaurant there. Thank you, Charlestown Marina—we can’t wait until next year!

Great place to stay for the 4th of July weekend! So much to see and do right from the dock!

Charleston Marina is in a great place in Boston Harbor. It is convenient to Boston and Cambridge. It has no fuel dock, but there are other fuel docks close by. It is a bit awkward arranging a pump out, but it can be done. The marina has a parking lot, but it is usually 'full', meaning it is reserving spaces for someone else. Use Uber or Lyft rather than renting a car.

If you like a frat party atmosphere this place is for you- the Marina allows boat owners to party on the deck outside their boats all week and late into the night. Nice spot but make sure you ask for a spot away from frat row- especially the larger boats they are right along your dock.

Everything was great! Great location, and if you figure out the walking paths, can easily walk to North End or Garden! Only negative is, the bathroom situation isn't great. Trailers at Pier 6 were ok, but were backed up and shut down one day on us, so went over to Pier 8 office baths to take a shower, not a great set up and absolutely no water pressure! The staff were fantastic and we very much enjoyed our stay! We will be back, for sure!

A little pricey but not surprising for metropolitan area. Very nice marina facilities. Helpful dockhands assisted with locating the slip and tying up. Nice location near Bunker Hill and Constitution. Bit of a walk to the North End restaurants but nice way to spend a couple days in the city.

The staff were all extremely helpful and personable. The docks are gorgeous and the marina is located in Charlestown Navy Yard, great location. Our favorite place to visit!

Friendly helpful staff. Convenient location. Good facilities. I was on the H dock and it was a hike to the facilities the way the marina is set up. Also I was wanting a pump out and it never seemed convenient for them (didn’t happen) even though they have a pump out port at every slip.

Good size marina not far from Boston. Very accommodating staff and a good restaurant on the property. The hot water in the showers took a long time to get hot and the Cancellation policy is terrible.

Nice docks, location, people. This time there has been a severe shortage of dock carts. It may be time to require tradesmen to provide their own. Guys washing boats should not monopolize several carts all day when paying customers are having to make multiple trips carrying groceries, laundry, etc…

Real nice docks. Great location. Friendly and helpful staff. Parking available but pricey for a marina in general at $25 per day....but good for 24 hours with “in and outs” allowable. The only significant negative was the wi-fi. Weak signal and could not get an internet connection overnight.

OUTSTANDING! ! Everyone, Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The staff, other boaters. The dock hands were friendly, knew what they were doing. We are cruising with 2 kids, 10 and 12, We docked and were met by a livaboard family. We ended up having a pot luck dinner with them. Highly recommend this marina

Great facility. Need a map of the docks as they are confusing when arriving. Request a slip away from the face dock for a less bouncy night.
