Enjoy the tranquility of our riverfront swimming pool! Convenient to Fishers Island Sound and south of all bridges, Mystic Shipyard is located in one of New England's premier cruising destinations. The beautiful Mystic River is a serene, safe setting that has always appealed to mariners. Enjoy the resort type atmosphere of the Mystic shipyard throughout the season in convenient and protected slips.
Nice place, neat town. Helpful staff
I booked a transient slip for the night. When we arrive the assigned slip had 20 knot winds accompanied by 1+ knot current both blowing directly on the slip. The was no safe way to enter the slip without endangering my crew. I have 50 years boating experience and am presently an active USCG 100 Ton Master. The marina has so far refused to refund the fee for the slip.
Great staff, great location! All needed amenities. Pool is perfect also
The staff was friendly and accommodating. The bathrooms and showers immaculate. The pool was lovely. The slips are to fixed piers and pilings, means you have to adjust lines a bit with the changing tide, but not a big problem. Unfortunately, although still advertised, there were no kayaks or paddleboards. Also, the addition of a snack bar would have made it a 5 star facility. But on the whole the stay there was very pleasant, the walk into Mystic not overlong. We would stay there again.
This marina and boatyard are a bit outside of the main part of town but within walking distance or a quick dinghy ride. The docks are in good condition as were the showers and restrooms and laundry facility. There is only one washer and one dryer and no place to sit and wait for loads to be finished inside (There are benches outside.), which was a bit of a problem in rainy weather. The pool was nice on a hot day in June. There are grills and picnic tables along the waterfront. The amenities are very nice, but the facility is a shipyard first and a marina second, so the outside areas are also driving/parking/work areas. There is no boaters' lounge.
Very helpful staff especially with tying up to a fixed dock. Pool was super nice by the the river and there was a great market with in walking distance call the mystic market. Quick dinghy ride into town. Bathrooms were clean. My boat likes power and requires a buck booster to run the climate side for anything under about 217 amps….Same issue as my home marine but did not bring my booster unfortunately
Great Marina Staff was very helpful
Friendly staff & residents.
Very accommodating, had a handicap person aboard, they set us up on a very accessible floating dock
Great place. Helpful office and dockhands!
Great location ,close to town (walking distance) nice pool with a view of the river
Nice location allows for an easy walk or dinghy ride into town. Fixed docks, not floaters, but Kenny was as helpful and talented a dock hand as you'll find anywhere. We look forward to a return visit.
Nice place, good facilities. Fixed docks are a bit of a drag. Would be better with floating docks.
Great place with easy dinghy access to all of town. Jeff the owner took me to hardware store when he heard i needed to go.
Mystic Shipyard is a beautiful marina. The dock staff are friendly and helpful. It is about one mile to walk to town, which is lovely with lots of shops and restaurants to enjoy.
We had a great stay! Had a problem with one of our engines, and Mystic Shipyard got us right in the schedule to diagnose and help us out quickly! The staff checked on the boats frequently during tropical storm Elsa. We will definitely return!
Fine facility! Okay location. A bit of difficulty establishing initial contact by VHF and/or telephone at 11:00 am on a July Tuesday.
Great location, Clean and well kept facility. Friendly staff
Great spot with clean facilities, excellent New England scenery, 1 mile walk to town center, short dingy ride.
Nice marina. Dockmates were helpful. Clean facilities. One mile walk to town. Wifi a little sketchy. Docking tough with the fixed piers but had help. Will return. Recommend.
nice location and infrastructure, friendly and responsive staff
Convenient to downtown. Dock hands met us and got us tied up quickly. Very nice staff and facility
Great location Close to town and a nice place to walk around. The stationary docks were a little challenging but the view from our bridge makes it worth it. We'll be back!
Dock staff very helpful and friendly. Helped with docking, setting up electrical hookup & telling us about nearby places to eat. Showers & restrooms are clean and maintained. Pool has no lifeguard and children do tend to hog it as several were there with no adult supervision- that is not the fault of the marina! I blame this on lazy parents
Very nice place, helpful dock hands. Easy dingy ride into town, no bridges to worry about.
Nice Marina. Bathrooms were clean. Had BBQ’s and picnic tables. Everyone was super nice. Town was a mile walk. You could not ask for more. Definitely on the list for next year.
We were particularly impressed with the pool and quiet serenity of this marina. It appears that most of the boats at the marina are permanent slip holders as opposed to us being transient guests. The people we met at the marina were very friendly and helpful!
Nice facilities. Close to town and restaurants. Complimentary use of a kayak or SUP. We had a nice visit and will go back. My only criticism is that the use of the pool by children should require adult supervision. When several adults entered the pool area to use the pool it was monopolized by four unsupervised children who were playing a game in the pool that involved throwing a tennis ball. Several times, any adult that ventured into the pool was nearly hit with the ball. I know this was not a problem with the Shipyard - it was a problem with the irresponsible parent who was using the pool to babysit their children.
Staff very accommodating. Helpful during docking. Not usual set up for the ropes. Need to grab ropes from pillings. Nice pool. Grounds well kept
Easy in and out. Short walk to Mystic downtown.
Very accommodating and responsive. Actually closer to town that marinas on east side of bay
Tim who helped us get tied up was extremely helpful and stayed with us until we were fully connected and had all of our arrival information. The marina staff went out of their way to pick up parts so that we could make a repair. We will definitely return!
Staff was very nice. Not happy with marina not being dog friendly. Signs everywhere saying dog off grass and dog run was small and no grass. Dog owners beware.
Helpful staff, wonderful pool, loaner bikes....loved it!
Great slip, friendly staff, nice facilities. Accommodated my 20' center console perfectly!
Very courteous helpful dock hands. Ice freezer wasn't working properly. Ice was soft and melted fast. Nicely maintained grounds.
