Very good communication for arrival instructions on a Sunday (when marina is closed), welcoming boat yard, friendly people everywhere. Easy bridge opening (although you better check the operating schedule). Very well protected. Walking distance to downtown and lots of restaurants nearby.

Friendly staff, nice marina, and great access to the town. The only negative is the nearby Amtrack trains which start blowing whistles around 0430.

Dockhand knowledge of area limited. Docks in poor condition. Didnt feel SAFE to walk alone in town so wont return. On a positive note, they were prepared with paperwork and KEY upon our arrival.

Great service from a well knowledgeable staff. Dock hands were careful with our boat, professional, courteous and swift with service. The pool was clean and pleasant. My go-to for future stopovers in New London.

Great location, easy access, protected cove and very friendly people. Pool onsite and the city of New London is an easy walk with dining, museums, etc.

CBY is a very reasonable marina for cruisers. It’s a large facility, so the dock hands can be overwhelmed and unresponsive on VHF10. They’re very helpful once on scene. The pool is a nice touch and the showers and heads are fine. The facility is weathered but pricing is reasonable. Sailors need to contact the Shaw Cove bridge on VHF13 to request an opening but be prepared to wait since Amtrak rolls over the bridge with surprising regularity!

Marina Response:
We thank you for your stay with us at Crocker's Boatyard. We apologize about the delay from the dock hands upon your arrival, but our dock hands monitor VHF Ch. 9. Enjoy the rest of your summer cruise and stop back and see us again!

Friendly and available staff and gregarious boaters. Clean facilities and floating docks. Convenient walk to great food and bars.

Marina Response:
Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Since you booked online, we didn't realize that you wouldn't contact us before coming in. Hence we couldn't give you the slip assignment, instructions on where to get your info packet and card key, plus our hours of operation. We apologize for your discomfort. We are now implementing a routine of contacting the transients that don't contact us to make sure they know all the things that would have made your stay better. I think you have already been contacted by our customer service department as well. Again, Thank you

Excellent customer service from friendly, professional staff! Well-sheltered location about half-mile walk from downtown waterfront. Floating piers; heads and showers nothing fancy but clean and spacious. Nice pool. Reasonable rate. Positive experience all around.

My husband and I have been here several times, including their fireworks weekends and had a great time. The place is very clean, professional and helpful. Other then the fireworks weekends, the place is quiet and restful. I love going to the casino and eating downtown. My husband likes to bike around the coast and all the historic places. Also a great place to go in bad weather!
