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.
In the heart of the celebrated Sailing Capital of the World, Safe Harbor Newport Shipyard is surrounded by the colonial captains' homes, cozy eateries, and seaside boutiques that line the streets of downtown Newport. Perfectly protected from wind and surge, the 'Shipyard' bestows captains and crew with well-earned personalized service and onshore amenities, while the international sailing community makes it the preeminent home port for the most prestigious yachting events in the world.
we came in due to some bad weather and the staff was extremely helpful even tho they haven't fully opened up yet. I will definitely stay again anytime I come thru newport.
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.
Good facility. Helpful staff. An off high season rate would be great..
Nice facility with all the amenities you could want. Definitely revisiting. Staff service was impeccable. Could spend a week.
Great, helpful staff. Easy walk to town.
Super place to stay. Three people waiting to help me tie up. Very impressive facilities.
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!
Beautiful marina!! Mike and staff went above and beyond!! Excellent service. We'll definitely be back!!!
Awesome. Great people, attentive and helpful. Thank you!
This place is great. A (no so) hidden gem. We'll keep coming back.
dock staff was excellent, guard at entrance very nice and helpful and the food at Belle's was awesome. Great time and nice location!
Very attentive staff
Super nice marina and shipyard away from the noise but close enough to city center. Great restaurant Belle’s.
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.
The Shipyard is a major yachting facility for a very good reason. Everyone is skilled, pleasant and helpful. The facilities are spacious and well run. Highly recommend.
Very helpful staff Clean facilities Not cheap
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! .... 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...
Nice place and location. The dock hands are great.
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.
Great location and the staff was very helpful.
Such a beautiful marina/shipyard! Loved it!
Great service, people and awesome facility. Special thanks to their dockmaster, Mike.
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.
Beautiful marina with very friendly staff. We will definitely be back!!!
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.
Dock hands were fantastic, bathrooms/showers were immaculate Free beer friday on the main dock A bit pricey, but you are in Newport Our 4th visit there, will be back
Always friendly, polite and has the most interesting boats to look at!
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!
Outstanding! Excellent facilities. Staff was very professional, courteous and friendly. Would definitely choose Newport Shipyard on a return trip to Newport!
