Safe Harbor Newport Shipyard is working diligently and methodically under the guidelines and laws of our local and federal government during the COVID-19 scenario. We realize many boats will start their journeys north for the summer and our marina is open for business and we look forward to welcoming many yachts to Newport in the coming days and weeks. Our team has been working remotely and will continue to do so until it is safe for everyone to re-convene in our office. We encourage yachts needing dockage to contact our Dock Office via email ([email protected]) and we will respond in a timely manner with availability, rates, approach instructions, and we will do our best to answer questions related to: quarantine rules, provisioning, local available amenities, medical access, and more. We are remaining positive and hopeful that the actions taken by the Governor of RI and our residents to proactively minimize the spread of COVID-19 will pay dividends in the weeks and months ahead. We look forward to welcoming you to Newport and please contact us with any questions you may have.

An excellent marina, with a great dock crew. Wonderful restaurant overlooking the water. Best lobster roll ever!

Super nice marina and shipyard away from the noise but close enough to city center. Great restaurant Belle’s. However not being told that pump out is done for a $25 fee and being charged after the fact on cc is never pleasant.

Dockhands brought a team of 4 guys and a tender and worked like a well oiled machine to put me in a great spot. Newport is my favorite and Safe Harbor has an excellent location that is in the action but still quiet with beautiful boats to enjoy the view with.

(date??): Crew there was great; very pleasant and helpful!!! bathroom facilities were less than expected...shared public, not marina men's and lady's...a bummer. docks and such were great. great protected location. hope to go again sometime this year! .... 2020: well, we went again for the 4th and again it was outstanding! 3 boats shared a finger dock (comfortably) which was unexpected and appreciated! Watched sunset from the marina, awesome. Breakfast at Belle's, awesome! can't wait to go back... ......... Mem Day wkend 2021...forecast nothing to brag about, but they (Tony) let us arrive early Friday so we got one good day. same great attention to transients.

From the minute we arrived we knew there was a big difference here. A Nor'easter was bearing down on us and the staff was incredibly prepared. There were 2 employees at the dock waiting to handle lines. They also helped us connect to the power (including bringing a 50Amp extension cord), and brought us an additional breastline. At one point during the storm the power went down in a 40kt rain-filled gale - but there was an immediate visit from a dockhand with a replacement power supply. Every employee here has the most helpful attitude. We arrived just ahead of the storm, but decided to spend FOUR nights. We've never experienced such a well trained, well managed marina. Add to that the fact that you will be docked in and around some of the most incredible yachts from all over the world, and that the marina is just a ten-second walk to the beautiful city of Newport. Your stay here will spoil you for any other marina - guaranteed. You need to stay here to appreciate it.

Staff was courteous and helpful. Location is very good relative to Newport waterfront. Short walk to get there. Not too close to the hustle & bustle. Restrooms, showers and laundry were clean but very cramped and not up to the standards (as to size) for a world class facility such as this place.

The marina staff was very helpful upon our arrival! They assisted with our docking on a very windy day and made sure we had our electrical and water hook ups. They were very friendly at the store and while checking in. We ate at Bella’s for lunch and the food and service was excellent! It was our first time and we will certainly go back!

Our expectations were high based on reviews and price per foot. The location is excellent and staff friendly but the operation does not run seamlessly with communication. Our slip required the use of an extension cord to connect to power that only delivered 220 v. . Granted we have a sophisticated isotransformer that performs best with 240 v delivery but we have had no problems with power at multiple marinas. Our problem was addressed but not resolved until 48 hours later so we paid for electric while supplementing our power with our generator or by limiting our usage to one air conditioner. We were satisfied with the resolution but not the timeliness. The advertised courtesy vehicles were actually 100.00 per day (due to covid) and we were surprised that pumpouts exceeded $25.00 . We did not leave with the impression of great customer service based on experience with other marinas.

Dock and dock hands were good. Restaurant was good also. Slip was too small.. Person at the front desk did not know much and we had to ask about everything to get answers.. (Bathrooms, internet, showers). Terrible smell.. Internet was terrible.

Marina Response:
Thank you for your review. We appreciate all feedback - good and constructive - and will share this with our staff/management. Our internet is on our radar and have plans to improve the signal throughout the marina/yard. Thank you again and we hope you'll give SHM Newport Shipyard another shot the next time you're in Newport. Sincerely, NSY Dock Office

We came in for a night. Marina staff were Rock Stars! I wish I caught their names but they brought us in promptly and were very friendly. Another two staff members even brought us a gift bag which was great because I was in need of a coozie. Marina was nice as well. Only issue was this older gentleman taking pictures of us and our friends children In front of the store front. At one point even hiding behind a bush w a camera taking pics while we were on the dock. He was staying on a sail boat there. When we told the staff he immediately confronted the other guest to stop takin pics which we appreciated. A+ job to the staff.

Our stay last weekend to Newport Shipyard was great break from 3 months at home. The yard was extremely professional during these C 19 times were all living in. Owen was waiting when we arrived, guided us to our assigned slip and and assisted with docking. The yard location is perfect for any stay in Newport. From its location it’s a short walk to anywhere in town.

We came into Newport Shipyard for a weekend stay recently. Great help finding our slip. Upon arrival we were helped to get secured to the dock, and all powered up. Facilities are top notch, and couldn’t ask for better experience. The fact they cater to larger vessels shows in their professional approach to everything they do! The dock was nice and quiet at night, and we really enjoyed our stay.

Not enough can be said about the hard work that every member of the NSY Team puts into making the Shipyard the yachting hub it is today. Great facilities, world class service department and ship store, great environment for families and crew, Belle's Cafe has great food, and the close location to Downtown and Broadway makes this place a must go, by land or by sea!
